Our good friends at Modiphius Entertainment have landed an awesome distribution deal which will see them handling Gimmerspace from Iron GM Games which is co developed by awesome genre actor and gamer Sean Austin of Lord of the Rings, Goonies game!
From the press release
Modiphius is proud to announce an exciting worldwide distribution deal with Iron GM Games for Grimmerspace which is coming to Kickstarter in May 2019. Grimmerspace is a sci-fi horror RPG setting for the hit Starfinder™ roleplaying game by Paizo Publishing, co-developed by beloved actor/director Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, Stranger Things), along with award-winning game designers Lou Agresta and Rone Barton.
Grimmerspace is set in a non-magical, science-fiction horror universe, and the citizens of Grimmerspace (“Grimmers”) are veterans of fighting alien abominations from the depths. Despite its strangeness and its terrors, their world remains a rational, scientific reality. Until now.
The Grimmers don’t know it yet, but the evil Sundermages — near-immortal sorcerers wielding godlike power — ripped into their universe not long ago through a vast tear in space-time called the Seethe. As the Seethe leaks magic into their galaxy for the first time, the Sundermages plot from the shadows to conquer the five distinct, technological civilizations of Grimmerspace .
Soon, science and magic will come to world-ending blows.
Grimmerspace takes place in the Gilding Rim Galaxy, aka the G-Rim. The core narrative tension of the universe is a conflict between technology and magic as the galaxy, previously devoid of magic, is flipped upside down by the arrival of powerful mages. Will you choose bullets or fireballs to wage war against alien horrors?
The 2019 fully funded GrimmerspaceKickstarter will include five game books and a quick-start guide so that you can get right into the action.
The Grimmerspace Sci-Fi Setting and Adventures book offers over 14 adventures that explore 14 unique locales across the Gliding Rim galaxy. Learn more about these regions, their riches, the civilizations that vie to control them, and the terrors that lie in wait during the GrimmerspaceKickstarter.
From the twisted mind of horror master Richard Pett comes Abattoir 8, the chilling tale of a sub-orbital meat processing plant gone dark. We’re giving it away, but get on the list for early access! Learn more about Abattoir 8, its place in the 48-page adventure Casket of the Cull, and receiving your print copy during the Grimmerspace Kickstarter.
Grimmerspace comes with a free, easy-to-download Jumpstart guide so you can get right into the action, whether you’re new to roleplaying games or haven’t played in years. In fact, you can grab the Jumpstart for free even if that’s all you decide to do, just by visiting the GrimmerspaceKickstarter page.
