End Transmission Games

Most of the time, when you're playing through an adventure, you just see it from the one side. You're the heroes cleaning out the cave full of kobolds. A couple RPGs let you play as the Kobolds looking to defend their home from the heroes. No Country for Great Old Ones lets you do both in a single packet. This neo-western adventure for the multiple systems lets you play as both the cops going after bank robbers, as well as the bank robbers (or, with a large group and a good GM, both at once). The adventure is up on Kickstarter now.
Well, it would seem the Earth has been destroyed again. Damnit, Carl, I told you not to push that button. Thankfully, humanity is able to escape out into space and colonize new places to live. Not-so-thankfully, humanity tends to have a lot of wars, and that's really no different in the future. Be it wars between different colonies, or different corporations, or different religious groups, there have been and probably always will be wars. But then again, an RPG where there's no sort of conflict at all would be pretty dull. Anyway, System Malfunction is a new sci-fi RPG up on Kickstarter.
About a month or so ago, I had an impromptu Arnold Schwarzenegger movie marathon on Netflix. The Terminator, Conan, and then The Running Man (and then Total Recall, but we're mostly focusing on The Running Man here). As you know, in the movie, a dystopian society puts convicts into a "win or die" game where they have to escape from psychopaths-turned-heroes. Well, now just think if you took that idea and gave it steroids. That's sort of the idea behind Splinter: Surprising Things. The RPG is up on Kickstarter now and looking for funding.
End Transmission Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Psionics, their new RPG setting and game. They've made their goal already, so it's on to stretch goals for the next 36 days.



From the campaign:

Psionics is set in the real world, in the present day, or 20 minutes into the future (if you like). The players take on the role of troubled teenagers and young adults who have just had an enormous power hidden inside them - psionic talents - unlocked by external tampering.

The PCs - called Espers - will gain the ability to solve the mundane problems in their lives with the superhuman abilities available to them; they will also be confronted with questions about the costs of their powers, from using telekinesis or pyrokinesis to get revenge on the bullies that tormented them, or using mind control to convince their crush to give them a chance.
