Lots of people I respect backed this, so I backed it, too. I’ve never played the games it’s based upon (MY0 and M:GA), but I’ve seen lots of successful AP from the aforementioned people, among others. Also, it’s an SF RPG, and it has the kind of cool art only the Northern Europeans seem to know how to do.
I will say that the setup as described triggers my “too high concept” peeve. Every time I read the background info or watch the KS video, I feel like there’s just one too many things going on, plus there also apparently monsters and gods and stuff. And while I get the alleged Firefly angle, I don’t know much about the Arabian Nights, so maybe this all makes sense and I just don’t grok it yet.
TL;DR — It’s not clear to me exactly what one does in this game besides marvel at the setting.
But, I’m also riding high on the new season of Killjoys, so the timing of this is perfect. Also: SO PRETTY.
So, in for now!
