B. Everett Dutton has published a freshly revised version of their Creeping Rot RPG.
It’s the first time the game has been available on Itch.io, but the revised edition has an improved layout, rule tweaks and an increase in the game’s difficulty.
You can download the game for free from Itch.io, but do consider leaving a tip.
The Creeping Rot is a zombie survival game but does not necessarily need to be about battling the undead. You play as a group of survivors trying to cope with dwindling resources.
Characters have three stats: Spirit, Safety and Supply. Each turn a problem arises that must be dealt with that endangers either Spirit, Safety or Supply.
Two d6 are rolled to see what problems strike. Spirit problems might be the depressing stench of bodies, Spirit might be an encounter with the zombie-form of an old friend and Supply might be the last working car breaking down.
