Chandler, AZ April 4, 2017 – Pinnacle Entertainment Group, award-winning makers of Savage Worlds, Deadlands, and many other games, launched two Kickstarters running simultaneously for the pulp scifi setting Fear Agent™ and “zombie Noir” The Goon™ comics. Both funded in less than 90 minutes and have already passed numerous stretch goals!
The Goon™ RPG for Savage Worlds: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/545820095/the-goontm-for-savage-worlds/description
Multiple Eisner-award winning comic The Goon™ pulls no punches when Goon starts swingin’—usually at the chug-heads, changelings, and snake-riddled rival gangs what get in his way. Now your strangers, weirdos, and ne’er do wells can join his crew, make Lonely Street a bit less zombified, and even save the Town in the dramatic Plot Point Campaign “From Hell’s Heart We Bite at Thee!”
The Goon™ is created by Eric Powell and published by Dark Horse Comics: www.darkhorse.com
Fear Agent™ RPG for Savage Worlds: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/545820095/fear-agenttm-for-savage-worlds/description
The Earth is decimated in an alien invasion—then the “backwards” survivors are invited to join the United Systems as a sort of half-hearted apology. Just like the star of the comics, the “Last Fear Agent” Heath Huston, your heroes are stuck cleaning up the mess in a planet-hopping, time-traveling, conundrum-unravelling journey against the strangest and weirdest aliens the Deep has to offer. And all with a few twists worthy of this phenomenal series!
Fear Agent™ is created by Rick Remender (Black Science, Seven to Eternity, Captain America), Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Deadpool, Exterminators), and Jerome Opeña (The Avengers, Moon Knight, Uncanny X-Force), and published by Dark Horse Comics: www.darkhorse.com.
The Goon™ RPG and the Fear Agent™ RPG for Savage Worlds Kickstarters each offer a core book, GM Screen with adventure, Bennies, dice, and amazing miniatures sculpted by Bronze Age Miniatures. A copy of the Savage Worlds core rules is required to play ($10 at www.peginc.com).
If you are new to Savage Worlds, Pinnacle announced an Un-Stretch Goal: PDFs for Deadlands, Rippers Resurrected, The Last Parsec, and East Texas University. Digital or higher level backers on either Goon™ RPG or Fear Agent™ RPG Kickstarter get these PDFs for FREE after the Kickstarter. That’s a terrific way to get a feel for the variety of genres Savage Worlds can handle.
The Kickstarters both end on Monday, April 17th at 5 pm Eastern. Reward levels begin at $25 for digital and $35 for print. Don’t miss out—back both today!
