In May of this year, Gallant Knight Games successfully funded Tiny Frontiers, a minimalist science-fiction role-playing game, through Kickstarter. Their new campaign, Tiny Frontier: Mecha and Monsters, has already reached its funding goal. However, the Kickstarter still runs for eleven more days. So, there’s still plenty of time to jump on board.
Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters introduces rules that will allow players to step into the giant shoes of robots or kaiju. If you’ve always wanted to smash buildings or defend cities you should definitely give this campaign a look.
The pledge levels for this campaign set a fairly low entry point for the campaign. For just $10 backers will receive a digital version of the rules and all unlocked digital stretch goals. And, at the $25 pledge level backers will receive an amazing package of rewards. These include a softcover version of the rule book, a GM screen, a PDF copy of the same book, and all unlocked digital stretch goals. In addition to all of that, this tier also comes with six custom D6’s for the game. The set includes three mecha dice and three kaiju dice.
At the higher levels, the Kickstarter offers a $60 pledge that upgrades the physical book to hardcover. Also, backers at this level will receive a custom hand-made dice bag. Finally, backers can choose one of two limited $250 pledge tiers. At this level the backer will create a custom mecha or a custom kaiju along with the design team. Furthermore, backers at the top level receive all other rewards from the $60 pledge level.
Since the Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters Kickstarter runs for eleven more days, there are still future Stretch Goals to unlock. As a result, the core book will keep expanding out the more money the Kickstarter raises. At initially funding, the core book would have contained all of the rules to play Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters as well as four micro-settings. These micro-settings serve as jumping off points to create games within the world of Tiny Frontiers: Mecha and Monsters
Funding has already surpassed $7,000, $8,000, and $9,000 stretch goals. Consequently, the core book will now include three more micro-settings. The more stretch goals that fall the more micro-settings get added to the book.
If you love giant robots and kaiju, I recommend that you check out this Kickstarter campaign. You should also head over to DriveThruRPG to check out the original Tiny Frontiers book. You can pick it up for only $5 for the remainder of the Kickstarter campaign.
