Into the Duskworld is a good looking but sombre RPG from Italian publisher Alter Ego Games.
What’s so melancholy about it? In the RPG, you play kids who need to deal with, perhaps even explore, the Duskworld. The Duskworld is a dimension created by the memories of kidnapped children and inhabited by creatures so cruel they are locked out of Hell. Alter Ego launched the campaign today and are asking €8,000 to fund, you can see the progress and pledge on the pitch page.
Sound like a try before you buy sort of RPG?
I thought so, Alter Ego did too. You can download the Into the Duskworld Quickstart for free.
The Kickstarter campaign includes a Gift Voucher option in case the RPG feels like it would be a good 2020 Christmas gift of a promise to make someone.
The PDF costs €25 (about £23 at pre-2021/Brexit rates) and that entitles you to all the stretch goals. The expected delivery date for the digital edition is November 2021.
The printed book costs €35, it’s 350-pages long and full colour. The PDF edition comes with it, and the delivery date is December 2021.
Characters in Into the Duskworld are aged between 9 and 12, the game is set in the 90s (no pesky smartphones), and the system uses “Mood Points” to measure how dangerously close the kids are to Billygoat’s clutches.
