Interview with Pete Petrusha on the Rest in Pieces Kickstarter

Today we’re joined by Pete Petrusha of Imagining Games to learn more about his game currently on Kickstarter – Rest in Pieces! Rest in Pieces is a dark comedy game where the Grim Reaper is your deadbeat roommate and you’re stuck in the lease for one reason or another. Your misadventures as his slacker roommates are influenced by a two toned block tower. We love this concept, and are anxiously looking forward to the Cthulhu supplement. You can learn more in the Rest in Pieces Facebook group

Interview with Jacob Wood on Survival of the Able

Survival of the Able is a new game on Kickstarter that puts disabled characters front and center. We were able to sit down with the creator, Jacob Wood to discuss the game, it’s inspiration, and how disability plays a key role in the setting. 

“In Survival of the Able you’re a person with a disability living in a European almshouse when the Black Death arrives. Little is known about where the plague originated or how to stop it, but those who die from it are rising again—and they’re hungry for flesh. Since everyone else has succumbed to the plague, it’s up to a handful of you to make your way out of town and away to safety. You may not be the biggest, the strongest, or the fittest, but you’re determined to survive.”
