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.”

The Nuadan Chronicles: Blood of the Sea

A team of mercenaries is dispatched to an island to destroy an experimental weapon before it can fall into enemy hands. It seems, however, that there is more then just enemy marines to fear at this abandoned navy base.

The Nuadan Chronicles is currently on Kickstarter! Please head over and check out this great game before the kickstarter ends on October 25th. We really enjoyed the new take on levels of success and failure, and how even a bad dice roll wasn’t the end of the world if you were especially skilled at a task. The setting is great, and we love the huge amount of diversity in the characters and artwork. You can also find Broken Dice on Twittter or visit their website to follow their progress.

Joker Squadron 3: Where’s Joker Lead?

It’s time for Joker Squadron’s first combat mission. But when the plucky rebels drop out of hyperspace, they’ll find themselves short one squadron commander and an overabundance of Imperials. Luckily, there are other ships hanging around in the middle of nowhere trading fire with the baddies, and they may be the key to taking a big chunk out of the Empire’s grip on the sector.
