MODIPHIUS ADVENT CALENDAR - 16th DECEMBER
I clearly remember being in Camden in London, on my way to meet some friends in an old DJ bar back in the 90's, having stopped off at Virgin Games after work to buy the Capitol supplement for Mutant Chronicles. Probably around '93-'95. I'd been playing the great value Blood Berets and seeing the storm of product coming out for the Mutant Chronicles universe I had picked up the 2nd edition RPG and had to have more. I wasn't part of a regular gaming group back then, I'd play with friends when we had the chance as my weekends were taken up with my job working with DJ's and bands at some of the big clubs and 'raves' around the UK. But the artwork sucked me in, the gonzo world of big guns and bigger shoulder pads, of 'close to home' corporations that felt quite familiar yet had a big overdose of fantasy.
Amazing to get the chance then to reboot that franchise this year. Well the roleplaying side of things, and we're having a good crack at it, having funded 17 books in our kickstarter plus new RPG miniatures, pendants, dice, maps and much more.
You know I never dreamed I'd be working with such a big gaming brand back then, let alone having a games company to do it with. So this should be a reminder that everything is within your grasp, work hard, show what you can do, and you can be doing anything you want in 2, 5 or 10 years. Dream on because if you don't, no one will do it for you.
We're still letting people join in with the Kickstarter - you can pick up some of the basic pledges in our webstore and they're really quite ridiculous value - check the Kickstarter page to find out. We'll be closing this offer soon so grab it while you can.
