Polarity owned Magnetic Press had set up a company, Magnetic Press Play, to get into tabletop games.
It's our first look at the MVD6 system, the Magnetic Variant of the D6 system that once powered titles like Star Wars and Ghostbusters.
Magnetic Press Play's first Kickstarter launched today as West End Game's D6 System is adapted to the paranormal dieselpunk adventures of Carbon Grey.
