Award-winning RPG designer Liz Chaipraditkul has joined Magpie Games.
Chaipraditkul win the 2020 Indie Groundbreaker for Afterlife: Wandering Souls and, more recently, took City of Flesh to Kickstarter and Zine Quest 3 in a grimdark femmcore RPG about escaping the rotting womb of a dying colossus.
Magpie announced the still-untitled game at the start of the month, having secured a multi-year license with ViacomCBS.
In addition to the Powered by the Apocalypse RPG, Magpie has confirmed two other books for the game; Republic City and The Spirit World. The latter is due out in February 2023.
That’s enough to keep most project managers busy for a while. Thankfully, Magpie noted that Liz is up for the task, saying;
She’s a very organized developer and gets as much thrill out of figuring out how to fit everything together into a great book as she does in designing the systems in the first place.
