My take: on this week’s entry Frontier
I had a passing interest in this game when it popped up in my random search.
From publisher blurb:
"Burn, slash, cut, incinerate, shoot, maul, vaporise, maim, slaughter, electrocute, rend, blast and disintegrate your way through The Frontier !
Inspired by action roleplaying games, such as Borderlands and Destiny, The Frontier is a sci-fi game of hi-octane action that focuses on the simpler pleasures of life. Explore the alien ruins of a faraway world, fight a ton of nasties and baddies, and collect a boatload of loot as your reward!"
*** Create intricate characters with complex personalities, then go shoot bad guys in the face and take their stuff!*
** An exciting post-apocalyptic setting, complete with an introductory scenario to get you straight into the action. The game’s setting is completely optional and easily replaced by your own creation.*
Sounds like a setting split between Apocalypse World meets Durance"!
- A simple game system with old school sensibilities to keep things moving at a smooth pace. If you’ve ever played a d20-based game, you already know how to play!
- Guns, guns, guns! A multitude of unique weapons and armor, each with several different randomly-determined variants.
Ugh. Nevermind…I don’t want a game focused on how much damage a million weapons do… Still, I have never tried it. Maybe it’s great? Well…probably not. If you have tried this game, let me know.
