Paranoia Kickstarter from Mongoose
Mongoose Publishing launched a Kickstarter for a new edition of the Paranoia RPG
this morning. It's already hit £23K of its £30K goal with over 500 backers in just a few hours, so it looks like it's going to be a big 'un. "The classic RPG of a darkly humorous future; Rebooted by James Wallis to be faster and even easier to play."
If you're not familiar with the Paranoia RPG, here's a quick description from the Kickstarter page:
Serve the Computer! The Computer is your friend!
Imagine a world designed by Kafka, Stalin, Orwell, Huxley, Sartre and the Marx Brothers.
Paranoia is a roleplaying game set in a darkly humorous future. In Paranoia, a well-meaning but deranged computer desperately protects the citizens of an underground warren from all sorts of real and imagined enemies. You play one of The Computer's elite agents. Your job is to search out and destroy the enemies of The Computer. Your worst fear is that The Computer will discover that you are one of these enemies.
Paranoia: A light-hearted game of terror, death, bureaucracies, mad scientists, mutants, dangerous weapons, and insane robots, which encourages players to lie, to cheat, and backstab each other at every turn.
