On the 1st of January 1818 Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was first published. Chronicle City are keen to point out the 200 year anniversary.
In a Facebook post they introduce their fans to the tabletop horror game.
The Facebook post is a bit of a teaser as it doesn’t supply any more information. However, there’s an RPG of the same name that came out in the 2000 in Poland by Ignacy Trzewiczek. In the game players are the ‘Children of Frankenstein’ (I assume the monster, not the scientist). The mad doctor is still around, though, who has these children enslaved and making them reclaim their own will by forcing them to escape from captivity.
The game is said to use glue and scissors for character generation and the use of a single screw.
Update: Chronicle City / Angus Abranson have launched the Kickstarter.
It’s the game we speculated on; adapted from the original Polish. Here’s how the characters are described;
In Frankenstein Faktoria you and your friends play a Frankensteiner. One of the tortured creations of Doctor Victor Frankenstein, created out of a composite of body parts from cadavers and reanimated through science and electricity.
