6d6 are one of the first roleplaying publishers, perhaps the first, to take advantage of Kickstarter’s UK launch. Their campaign opened on the same day Kickstarter UK opened.
The campaign is for a new edition of the 6d6 Core rules with new art. Backers get the full game, in PDF form, at the lowest pledge level. One level up and backers get to add one adventure to their bundle.
At the £25 mark (which will convert to a Dollar amount for gamers outside the UK) paper-minis become available. The biggest twist is that the higher pledge levels come with the promise of being automatically entitled to free copies of everything 6d6 produces (in PDF). This is almost like using Kickstarter as a subscription service.
The current 6d6 adventures are Outbreak, a zombie game by Ben Jackson, Savage Island, a fantasy game by Chris Tregenza, Quantum Flux, a sci-fi by Kieran Kowalski and Mince Pies & Murder, a 1920s murder mystery from Tregenza.
The roadmap for the company includes 6d6 Bots, a dark humour sci-fi game, 6d6 Magic, 6d6 Hellenic, 6d6 Lovecraft and Rebel Flesh as a brand new horror setting.
