Some of you might actually already have heard about this, but I thought I’d share it anyway. Modiphius, the publisher who has brought us the excellent Achtung! Cthulhu setting for Savage Worlds and Call of Cthulhu, is currently running a Kickstarter for the third edition of Mutant Chronicles. Yes, you read that right, Mutant Chronicles is back!
Back in the 1990s Mutant Chronicles was a game I was extremely excited about. The setting combines Sci Fi, horror, and post-apocalyptic elements. Some aspects reminded me of Warhammer 40K, but that was actually a good thing. But it was still unique and original enough to stand on its own feet.
Alas the rules (especially the 1st edition ones) were not exactly to my liking, and I always felt that the setting had a couple of holes and inconsistencies. But I am confident that Modiphius’ 3rd Edition will fix this issues.
The Kickstarter’s goal was set at £11,000 which had been reached extremely fast. At the time of this writing several stretch goals have been reached and you still have about 25 days to decide if you want to back this project or not.
