Pinnacle invites you to rip, mix and burn – IN HELL

Pinnacle has posted a PDF preview of their new skirmish minis game Rippers. The six-page preview is all story – what the minis gamers call “fluff” without any pejorative intent – but I’d lay odds that the rules are very similar to the Showdown! skirmish rules based on Savage Worlds. The whole “ripping” mechanic wherein one takes DNA from a victim and adds it to an ally sounds like it could be really creative; in fact, this whole game kinda reminds me of the mismarketed, underrated (like most other things Cell Entertainment did) game LAB. Speaking of marketing, I have to question whether retailers will make room for yet another indie miniatures game right now, but mmm, tasty clear plastic boxes. You make the call.
