Will Hindmarch’s Project: Dark Kickstarter pitches a stealth adventure game that is part deck building and part tabletop roleplaying game. The characters are fantastical thieves or spies sneaking unseen through the shadows to obtain loot or secrets. It sounds different. It’s all about infiltration and intrigue, not blundering around storming dungeons and being a hero. I’m in.
Edit: There’s a really atmospheric actual play report over at Platonic Solids that I think really captures the flavour of what this game is going to be all about. Go check it out.
Edit 2: Even more flavourful, listen to an awesome session of Dark, GM’d by Will Hindmarch himself and set in the Dark Planet world, over on James D’Amato’s One Shot podcast.
