Would You Back The Mystery $1 RPG Kickstarter?

Game designer Jim Pinto has a novel take on crowdfunding - he's currently running a Kickstarter campaign with a pledge level of $1 and whose rewards are a mystery. Well, kind of. Backers will suggest and vote on a title, and he will write an RPG based on that title. Every backer gets a PDF of the result for $1. Some higher pledge levels let you vote more times, but the reward remains the same. Stretch goals include extra pages, along with wacky things like control of Pinto's Twitter account for an hour and Pinto getting himself a tattoo of the game's name.

It's doing quite well, too. With a $1 funding goal, it could hardly fail to succeed, but it's blasting through some stretch goals and is approaching $4,000 with a week left to go.
It already has an additional 48 pages, and at $4,000 it will get an extra 50 pages.

Here are some of the already suggested titles:

  • Werewolves of London
  • Big Booty Bards
  • Oil
  • Occam's Dollar Razor Club
  • The Road Less Travelled
  • In A Dark Room
  • The Alchemist's Dilemma
  • The Rancorous Regiment of Revenant Rouges and the Randomly Relocating Ring
  • I Don't Know How to Play This
  • More Than A Mannequin
  • Death in Wonderland
  • Unintentional Clairvoyance
  • Pass the Cannibal
  • Ninja Roulette
  • ​... and many more!

Why would you back such a thing? As the creation himself says, it's only a dollar and he hasn't cheated anyone yet. On that basis alone, it might be worth a plug. Find it right here!

Wow, I'm surprised to see so many people here aren't willing to part with $1 for this. I've backed it (at nearly $1.50 AUD!) just to see what will come from it.

$1 won't buy much here in Australia, so I'm happy to see what sort of RPG I can get for $1.

I am a little surprised as well but I get many people not being into a gimmicky KS campaign. Jim Pinto has had a number of Kickstarters and I have backed two of them- GM Toolcards and Solomon Guild (wish I had done toolcards 2)-. He delivered and was very easy to interact with the single time I had a minor issue.

I am actually a much bigger back on this one the dollar level, as watching a creator try something odd like this might be wildly amusing. If it isn't it was just a chance to support a creator that I hope does well.
