RPG Crowdfunding News – GeneFunk 2090, Constant Downpour, Witness, and more

This week’s RPG crowdfunding projects end between December 8th through the 13th. Every week, I look at a sampling of the projects that are available for you to back. Despite this list ending during the holiday season, there are a variety of options from Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition and Savage Worlds Adventure Edition to MÖRK BORG and Mothership and more to check out.

In a future where the human body is redesigned from the DNA up, you’re faced with the same challenge as we endure today: How to pay for it? With this hardcover, CRISPR Monkey Studios offers adventures in “a remote Peruvian jungle valley” as you merc against “carnivorous plants, insidious parasites, narcoterrorists, mad scientists, monstrous beasts, mutagenic viruses, horrifying kaiju, and diabolical biological AIs!” In terms of non-adventure content, you’ll get new archetypes, genetic enhancements, cybernetics, drugs, and more. If you’re interested in biopunk and how it looks with 5e, the campaign offers this book, their other setting adventure book, Shadow of Korea, and a reprint of the sold out core rulebook with errata and typo updates.

Genefunk is a franchise with a great potential. Maybe if it is adapted to videogame by the right company it could become more popular than cyberpunk. It has to be bought at least to speculate.
