SteamPower Publishing has unleashed a bit of terror into the roleplaying world with its new release, Dead of Night. This 224-page, digest-sized gamebook is “based on campfire tales, horror stories and urban myths.” The book’s easy portability is emphasized in statements on the website like “adapted for play on the move”, which makes me think of Sherpa, the RPG designed to play while hiking. Containing five adventures to play through and stylish artwork as well, Dead of Night sells for $19.99 and should be in stores now.
SteamPower Publishing press release follows:
The bite sized RPG is here!
Look for Dead of Night: the little book of horrors, in your local game stores beginning November 14th, 2005. If they’re not carrying it, bug them until they do! If your FLGS refuses to carry it, order it from Key20 Publishing
This ultra-portable 224-page book is one-quarter the physical size of standard RPG releases, so keep your eyes peeled for it.
You’ve heard it before for many other games, but I’ll say it again: The game offers some very unique ideas. It’s well worth your hard-earned gaming bucks.
Read the basic rules, generate characters in moments, and play a full session in the same evening! We focused on the essential elements of horror stories and movies that players want translated into games.
