After non-paying creditors caused OtherWorld Creations to announce the halt of production on nearly all products, a partnership with Wingnut Games has allowed the much-anticipated Solid! to approach completion. Using d20 Modern rules, Solid!: The D20 Blaxploitation Experience “allows players to experience the soul, power, and action of the movies that defined a generation.” At $17.99 for a 64-page hardcover, I’d expect Solid! to sell reasonably well based on novelty alone, and if the rules are — um, solid, the book should be a strong seller when it hits stores next month.
This is yet another example of game companies combining their efforts and resources to get a product into stores, after a year of sliding product release dates and decreased sales throughout most of the industry. Heck, if Mongoose is doing the upcoming WARS RPG for Decipher, and Green Ronin is doing the new Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay for Games Workshop, why can’t the smaller guys join together and form a small Voltron too?
