It is true, my friends... this Wednesday, we'll be launching our kickstarter for The Underground: a tabletop role-playing game set in the world of Sam and Fuzzy!
The folks from Damocles Thread Development and I have been working on this project for nearly two years now. They've focused on creating a unique gameplay system tailored to the style of my work, where a character's ability to mentally deal with weirdness is as important as their ability to physically deal with force. Meanwhile, I've been busy writing and illustrating a massive guide to the Sam and Fuzzy universe, expanding on the characters, organizations, and world in a way that I seldom get to in the comic itself.
Our goal was to make The Underground double as both a fun game and a cool illustrated guidebook... something that would have appeal whether you were a Sam and Fuzzy reader, a tabletop gamer, or both. And I think we've pulled it off! With you're support, I think we'll be able to make something pretty special.
Our kickstarter goes live on Wednesday, and with it comes more info about our game mechanics, more cool artwork, and one really awesome live-action ninja mafioso battle film. But in the meantime, here's a look at some of our game's playable species! (And yes, that included Buddy Bears):
