Immersion Studios. Oliver R. Shead plant morgen seine Kickstarter-Kampagne für das Infected Zombie RPG (Kickstarter-Preview) zu starten. Im vergangen Jahr hatte ich bereits auf das Rollenspiel hingewiesen.

Das Zombiethema ist irgendwie nicht totzukriegen, oder? Wie auch immer, der Autor war so nett, eine umfangreiche 49-seitige Vorschau mit Kurzregeln, Charakteren und Beispiel-Abenteuer zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Ein Auszug aus der offiziellen Presse-Mitteilung verrät mehr über das Infected Zombie RPG:

„Will You Rebuild Society, or Tear it Down?

 

Bestselling author of Holocaust Survivor Story, Georgina, Oliver R. Shead makes his tabletop RPG debut with a new take on the classic zombie apocalypse theme. The outbreak is over. The infected are all-but exterminated. Now, finally, humanity has the chance to rebuild and recover.

 

Infected! is a game for far more than just lovers of the zombie subculture. Players who like complex characters, dynamic combat, and a rich environment, will thoroughly enjoy playing it. To survive in this new world, hard choices must be made on a daily basis. Societies cannot survive without farms, trade, information and strong leaders and in order to survive, you will need to do far more than just fight.

 

What governments exist are desperate to retain control at all cost. Petty warlords, burners,
cannibals and bandits tear at society and threaten to bring total anarchy. All the while, the Infected lurk on the fringes, in the dark places of the world, hunting people with the cunning of wolves.

Infected! utilises the Immersion RPG system – universal, classless, and level-less, enabling players to utilise characters that live and breathe, have strengths, weaknesses, foibles, and fears…so many fears…that all affect gameplay. “This is a great system for experienced gamers looking to take things to the next level,” says Oliver. “It’s about allowing gamers to play whatever character they want.”

 

The Immersion RPG has been playtested for over five years and Infected! has been playtested for a year. It will launch on Kickstarter, with half the art and design already complete, to raise funds for the remaining art and design and a high quality print run.“

Infected Zombie RPG Press Release (15th August 2015)

Um ehrlich zu sein, das untote Genre um die wandelnden Kadaver gehört jetzt nicht zu meinen Favoriten. Wenige Ausnahmen (z. B. Zombicide, Dead of Winter) bestätigen diese Regel. Im Rollenspielbereich war All Flesh Must Be Eaten (Eden Studios) ganz in Ordnung. Mit der Vorschau von Infected! konnte ich mich bislang noch nicht ausgiebiger beschäftigen. Das ambitionierte Projekt werde ich jedoch weiter im Auge behalten. Womöglich steht eine weitere Regelausnahme an?

Was bleibt? Genrefans, viel Spaß mit dem Appetitmacher und dem Autor wünsche ich viel Erfolg mit seiner Schwarmfinanzierung (Kickstarter-Preview) und dem Projekt.

  1. Hi Ingo,

    Thanks for another great article mate! Honest as per usual :)
    And you really must wonder… how long will zombies be with us? For a while longer I hope (or maybe forever, like those vampires and werewolves).
    Cheers mate!
