Kickstarter - Satanic Panic - Buy it - for the Children

What's the pitch for Satanic Panic?
Satanic Panic is a tabletop roleplaying game set in the fictional 1970’s and 1980’s where players take on the role of secret government agents tasked with combating the evils of tabletop. The players work as a team with the common purpose to contain, control, and eliminate the threats to our world. They must do all this while keeping the truth from the public, lest a panic ensue.
Interesting pitch Not sure if it makes a great RPG, sounds more like an awesome novel, but its not my KS.

I say the above in part because the "core mechanic" doesn't excite me:

Still, interesting game concept and setting that has nearly double its $10k goal with 2 weeks left to fund.

As a side note, your KS video is NOT a graphic that is made to be used on blogs or in social media (I had to take a timed screenshot) If you want social media to spread the word on your project, make it easy for them to do so. Okay, rant off.

Am I going to back this? Too early to say. retirement does mean I have to pay attention to where my monies are spent and this is a game I would certainly read but its doubtful I'd ever play.


  1. The current episode of the Fear the Boot podcast is an interview episode with the game's creator where they talk about the game. (http://www.feartheboot.com/ftb/index.php/archives/5027)

  2. I'm not sure how well the premise of the game is going to play with the tabletop RPG audience. I do like the core mechanic for secret ops/conspiracy games in general, though.
