THE COSMOS HAS A MILLION WAYS TO KILL YOU…

 

JOIN THE PATROL!

 

Cosmic Patrol is a roleplaying game set in a retro future based on the Golden Age of science fiction. If you’ve ever seen a cover from a classic 1930s-1960s sci-fi pulp magazine, you’ve got the idea. You and your friends form the crew of a Patrol rocketship and blast off for action and adventure in the wild galaxy.

In Cosmic Patrol, players take the role of Patrolmen—the first and last line of defense for humans in a dangerous galaxy. Patrolmen explore, discover and defend the interests of humans wherever they go. With an atomic ray gun at their hip, they brave the unknown on a regular basis.

Cosmic Patrol Core Rulebook
Cosmic Patrol is a role-playing game all about creating a story. Using Cues as building blocks, you will construct a plot and narrate your Patrolman’s way through the millions of threats the cosmos has to offer. Your adventure will be unique to you and your group, and you’re encouraged to write those adventures up in true pulp style, for all the world to enjoy.

Gen Con 2011 Report

For those that follow my various blog posts and facebook updates, you may get tired of hearing this from me…but man I love Gen Con. I love the excitement…I love the geekiness…the costumes…absolutely love the games as far as the eye can see…and of course I do love seeing a new game come out and try to find a community.

Considering all the…um…”issues” of Leviathans (another game I’ve been developing for years, for those not following that blog), it was so nice to see a new game I’d been heavily involved in reach publication.

I had high hopes for the interest we’d have in our little red book as there’s not really much out there covering this style, but even I was surprised when the book made our internal best seller list for Gen Con books.

Here’s some photos that shows our new, awesome, atomic-powered Cosmic Patrol banner, as well as the two fine young ladies that did most of the in-booth demos for the game. The final photo is of the soft-cover Gen Con 2011 Special Edition book.

As mentioned in the previous blog, the standard hard-cover edition will be available towards the end of the year…and the PDF should be available sooner than you can re-fuel your rocketship and drop a new uranium pellet into your atomatic pistols…

Cosmic Patrol Released At Gen Con

A “Gen Con Special Edition” softcover Cosmic Patrol was available at Gen Con, where our intrepid space explorers ran a pile of demos.

A wonderful review of it by Gamehead.com can be found here (thanks Rich Hagon for taking the time to listen to me babble about our games).

The hard-cover “standard” version will be available in stores this fall (once we have more specific details of a Street Date we’ll pass it along), while the PDF will be available in the very near future.

Till next episode…
