I'm actually pretty excited about this one.  I've always found the Rifts world interesting but I just can't get into the original system and I actually think Savage Worlds is a pretty good fit for this.  It should certainly be robust enough to do the whole 'post apocalypse kitchen-sink' in it.

Rifts was all we played in high school.... I love rifts... but is Palladium books doing this? Cause I have some reservations about them fulfilling a kick starter... If they are not involved then I may be in... Though as complex as Rifts is, I wonder how the conversion to a relatively simple game like savage worlds will work...

This is being produced under license by Pinnacle and apparently they have a license to produce an ongoing line.

 

ETA:  Pinnacle doesn't start a Kickstarter until they are basically ready to print the books.  It's essentially a pre-order from them.

I remember it being announced ages ago until I forgot about it.

 

Rifts is one of those RPGs that have a special place in our hearts. A fascinating setting with a less than desirable game system (and horrible power creep between books).

 

But with Savage Worlds? It will be *very* interesting to see their take on it.

I believe dog-boys are not going to be in the base book, but in the Coalition book.

At least, that's what I keep reading in the rpg.net thread about this.

 

And yes, I'm going to back this. Maybe not for crazy amounts of money$, but I will give them some of my shiny electronic cashy monies!!

I would expect a fair amount of folks joining at $1 just to vent dissatisfaction with the state of the Robotech Tactics kickstarter. I would be absolutely certain that Palladium has no aspect at all with this before joining - even if it is just that they get to approve the final product. I could easily see that derailing the entire thing and such approval taking months and months - heck maybe years....

And a long wait if Kevin still has to approve it.

 

I'll eat my hat if Pinnacle didn't get pre-approval for anything that needed approving before starting the Kickstarter.  Pinnacle really does know what they are doing.

Have they worked with Palladium before?

 

What companies successfully partnered in the past with Palladium or had a license from them?

 

I know Ninja Division worked with Palladium for the Robotech RPG miniatures KS. although, arguably, This Time Things Will Be Different.

 

PEG Jodi on Dakka: "At this point the books are in final editing and layout. The text for the books—the hard part of the approval process—has already been approved. "

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      Hello folks! AngerSmash will be launching in Kickstarter on September 15, 2021 and you may now follow the project with this pre-launch link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/uncreatedspace/angersmash-a-game-making-fun-of-your-anger 
       
      But before launching on Kickstarter, I wanted to get some pre-feedback on the game box design that we've come up so far. Please refer to the photo below. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much! 🙂 
       
       
       
      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much! 
       
      (August 26) Original:
      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂 
       
      Gonna leave the Kickstarter project page link here as well as the Instagram link

      Given I have a few unplayed games sitting on my shelf, my will save has gotten pretty high on these.
