Confession; I’ve never played the Myst computer game. I’ve never played it despite many friends being incredibly positive about it. Perhaps this Kickstarter will be a solution? InkWork Productions now have nearly $20,000 in the bank (asking for only $5,000) to fund a RPG called Unwritten: Adventures in the Ages of Myst and Beyond. It’ll use Fate Core.
Interestingly, a significant update to the project has moved “International backers” to free shipping. Have InkWorks partnered with someone with handy warehouses in Europe and elsewhere? Who?
The Unwritten rules will be a 6×9, with a colour cover and B&W cover. Once made it’ll be a “Pay-What-You-Want” deal via DriveThru RPG. This means there wasn’t plans to do a shiny, large, book packed with art. I wonder if plans are changing now that the campaign is going so well? Or will shipping and stretch goals gobble up the cash? Is this why international shipping is now free?
The unlocked stretch goals include short stores, sourcebooks, notebooks and tokens (also free to ship out of the States).
