Introducing Rockalypse

-Kim Pine, Sex Bobomb

Mentioning a project on the internet is one of the ways that I commit to doing it. With that in mind, I would like to announce that work is underway on my first major RPG project outside of Steamscapes.

Rockalypse (working title) is the post-apocalyptic game of musical adventuring. It will be powered by Fate Core and will use the full advantages of that system. There will be no physical combat whatsoever – all conflict will be resolved by how hard you rock.

  • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
  • Tank Girl
  • FLCL
  • Six String Samurai
  • Brutal Legend
  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
