Sixth Gun for Savage Worlds Coming to Kickstarter, The Curious Expedition Launches On Steam, Fleabite – What’s Up
Sixth Gun for Savage Worlds Coming to Kickstarter
The Sixth Gun, the Cullen Bunn comic book series set in the Wild West where there are six guns each imbued with magical powers, will be coming to Savage Worlds via a Kickstarter campaign that is launching next Tuesday, May 26, 2015 according to a post from Savage Worlds publishers PEG Inc. The series has been running since 2013 and is currently up to 47 issues (not including spin-off titles), with – I believe – only three more issues remaining before the series is closed out with its 50th issue. The backer rewards will include a GenCon game GMed by Bunn himself.
The Curious Expedition Launches On Steam
I’ve written a couple of times about The Curious Expedition from devs Maschinen-Mensch, which I have been rather enamored with since they had a free weekend of the browser-based version of the game. Now, the game has launched on Steam for $14.99 (although it is currently 10% off for the launch). The Curious Expedition is a roguelike game where you try to gain fortune with a group of adventures journeying into a mysterious land to find unique artifacts and discover new places. The trailer for the Steam release is below.

Atlas Games releases Fiasco Playbooks set in Ars Magica, Post-Apocalyptic Adventure Dustbowl Released on Steam, The Kaams – Carol
Atlas Games releases Fiasco Playbooks set in Ars Magica
Ars Magica line editor recently retired from that position, but it certainly doesn’t appear that Atlas Games’ tabletop RPG set in a mythical European setting where myths and magic are real is going anywhere any time soon. In fact, just last week Atlas Games released Fiasco Playbooks (for free, no less) set in Ars Magica’s world. There are two playbooks, both designed by Will Hindmarch and one features grogs (warriors tasked with dealing with mundane threats to the wizards) and one centered around a group of magi. Having looked through them, I will say that some knowledge of Ars Magica would probably be helpful. But, good news, there is a Bundle of Holding going on right now featuring Ars Magica 5th Edition or you can actually get the 4th Edition for free.
Post-Apocalyptic Adventure Dustbowl Released on Steam
I have heard nothing of Dustbowl before I saw it as a new release on Steam. I haven’t played it, but it certainly looks like something that I will grab at some point. A post-apocalyptic adventure game, Dustbowl requires the player to find supplies to survive as they explore the game’s world made up of more than 50 locations. Dustbowl does feature random encounters, but it also promises “[a] huge main quest line that takes the player across the blistering wastelands.” Dustbowl is available now on Steam for $8.09 and is regularly priced at $8.99. It’s clearly doing something different, and that piques my interest.
