The Walking Dead Universe RPG Now Live On Kickstarter
It’s now live! Free League and AMC have united to produce The Walking Dead Universe, a tabletop RPG experience set in the world of the TV show. Don’t like how the last few seasons have turned out? Make your own!
To make this project authentic, Free League worked with Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple and Head of AMC Networks Publishing Mike Zagari to pull in material from all established corners of TWD, as well as introduce new areas no one’s seen yet. There is, of course, a lot at this point: the ten seasons of the main series, the spinoffs that have aired and the ones that have yet to appear. The core rulebook will be a large one.
The game will be directed by Free League co-founders Tomas Härenstam (ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG) and Mattias Johnsson Haake (Symbaroum), with Nils Hintze (Tales from the Loop RPG, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying) as lead writer, Gustaf Ekelund (Twilight: 2000) and Martin Grip (ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG) as lead artists, and Genuine Entertainment’s Joe LeFavi (ALIEN RPG, Blade Runner RPG, Dune, The Dragon Prince) as producer and brand manager on the game series.
The smallest pledge tier is the Digital Edition at $29, which gets you virtual versions of the rulebook, starter set and any stretch goals that happen to be digital. The physical Starter Set is just a few dollars more at $33, and both books in physical format are available at the $76 tier. A Deluxe Limited Edition of the Core Rulebook, exclusive to the campaign, is offered in the most expensive tier ($123). Those who make their pledges within the first 24 hours of launch will receive a bonus art print of the cover illustration by Martin Grip. The prize only applies to tiers that include physical rewards.
The Walking Dead Universe RPG Kickstarter will be up for just 21 days, but it seems like it has plenty of time….its modest five-figure goal has been surpassed ten times over in the first few hours. The campaign will be open until April 5.
