Close Personal Friend of Mine Nathan "NateBot" Letsinger just so happens to be the RPG Line manager at Privateer Press. You know, WarMachine? Natch.
So I pop open my e-mail to-day and notice -- hey, there's a message from Nathan! Swank!
Privateer is getting into the Collectible Miniatures Game (CMG) market, and they're doing it with a game called "Monsterpocalypse'".
You can read the press release right here, but the gist of it is: Collectible kaiju minis, pre-painted and random-packed, which "will launch with over 80 figures in the initial set and will include large-scale monsters, destroyable city structures, and vehicles."
Let's read that again.
"[W]ill include large-scale monsters, destroyable city structures, and vehicles."
Now...little plastic monsters and scale buildings are cool enough for starts. But when the terrain is interactive, you're playing in a whole new way.
I betcha that in playtest, everyone who gets to knock over a building goes, "BRRRRROOOOOOSSSSSSCCCHHHH!" when they do it. If they don't, they're a Commie.
Or a zombie.
Thanks to NateBot, then, for the heads-up and so much more.
