Adopt. Adapt. Improve. Words to live by. Growth. Learning. Change. That's what we should all strive for. Even our games should do that. It's with that in mind that Nightfall Games is bringing you a Kickstarter to fund the 2nd edition of SLA Industries. Sure, the original won some awards, but they knew they could do better.
From the campaign:
SLA Industries (pronounced "Slay Industries") is an award-winning pen-and-paper role-playing game that was first published in Scotland in 1993. The game is a horror noir science-fiction setting set in a dystopian reality in which the majority of the known universe is either owned or indirectly controlled by the eponymous corporation SLA Industries. The game incorporates themes from the cyberpunk, gothic horror and conspiracy genres, and has always been praised on the quality of writing and art. SLA Industries is considered one of the first and best examples of the Splatterpunk genre in RPGs.
The World of Progress, the universe in which SLA Industries operates, is a science-fiction image of the 1980s, where the fax machine spews out information alongside green-screen computers and vat-grown biogenetic monsters, who compete with humans and exotic alien races for work in an overgrown city that plunges deep underground.
We are very lucky to still have the original creative team at the core of this RPG. Dave Allsop and Jared Earle have been here from the beginning and have a clear vision for the future of SLA Industries. As with all of the SLA Industries publications, there will be high-quality art, brief stories, character quotes and other in-game content to bring The World of Progress to life. SLA Industries 2nd Edition will be crammed full of full-colour art, presenting one of the best visualised worlds in the RPG arena and the the most stunningly visual representation of The World of Progress to date.
The campaign's making its way towards 3x funded with 20 days left to go.
