I'm very pleased to share with you this press release from Spectrum Games about the upcoming RPG Retrostar! As most of you know, I have been designing characters and creating artwork for the game for almost a year now and I can't wait for the game to finally debut. Whether you're an RPG fan, a sci-fi fan or simply a fan of my artwork, please give it a try!
While most people associate the 1970s with disco, polyester, feathered hair and eight-track tapes, many of us were far too busy being enthralled by the unprecedented amount of sci-fi programming on television to even notice those things. The television landscape was rife with these shows, from all the primetime series to the Saturday morning kid-vid fare. And that was just fine by us.
Those days may be long gone, but the shows still live on in our hearts and memories -- shows about the doomed human race attempting to escape its robotic oppressors; shows about a time-tossed astronaut making his way in a future world; shows about the occupants of a moonbase on an unwitting journey when the moon itself gets knocked out of Earth's orbit; shows about an individual who was rebuilt into a bionic man to be better... stronger... faster; shows about scientists traveling across the post-apocalyptic wasteland in a futuristic RV to find remnants of civilization and to help rebuild it.
These are the shows that -- despite their campiness, hit-and-miss acting and limited budgets (or perhaps partly because
of such factors) -- have stuck with us for decades. With Retrostar, you'll relive all the magic and excitement of the sci-fi shows of yesteryear, right at your game table.
As with all of Spectrum Games
' RPGs, Retrostar
's game system will go to great pains to slavishly emulate every nuance of the source material! When playing it, you'll feel like you are starring in your own 1970s-era sci-fi television show! And that's just groovy!
