So, I am taking a break from thinking about game design this weekend to look at a few games. I have the pdf versions of Hollowpoint, and Diaspora. These are games by Vsca Publishing, and two of the games I am really excited to get to know.
Just a few words on what they are, and I will review them later when I am done.
Hollowpoint is a game where you are a bad ass, literally. You are an agent, and you have missions. Think James Bond, or maybe the A-Team. It is not a fluff game and deals with violence and death, so because of that it may not be fore everyone. That is fine, it seems like a nice break and it is a pick up game. Good pickup games are always a great thing to find. So bring it on!
Diaspora is a Fate based sci-fi game. Taking place in SPACE and dealing with a bit of a hard sci-fi approach, you create the galaxies and then on to having your ass handed to you. You know, cut it is fate. I am interested in this to see the Fate system in from a different point of view. I love Evil Hats games, so this should be exciting to read and see what Vsca did with the system.
I am really enjoying reading what I have so far, but will have a review of the games when I am done with them.
