Breaking: New GURPS Post-Apocalyptic Series Coming

It isn't post-apocalyptic gaming unless it's got a dude using a road sign for a shield in it somewhere.

Sean Punch reports that he is 60% through his first-draft review of Jason Levine’s GURPS After the End 2: The New World. The pseudo-official leak thread on the Steve Jackson Games forums has the first book in the series as being titled GURPS After the End 1: Wastelanders and Jason Levine also being the author there. That’s about all the news that I can scrounge up at  the moment.

You know… when I was growing up, we thought the Russians were going to nuke us at any moment. Road Warrior was on HBO. The games we played? CAR WARS, Gamma World, Twilight 2000, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Okay, maybe not so much that last one, but we did eye the After The Bomb supplements at the game store. The fall of the Soviet Union was really bad for post-apocalyptic gaming…. Up until then, it was all about mutants and crispy critters, let me tell you…!

    I’m looking forward to this one. Pee Kitty is an excellent writer with a good grasp on what makes a fun and gameable.
