Apocalypse Engine Bundle – Powered by the Apocalypse

by Tuesday 1 September 2015
Paoletta-WorldWideWrestlingIn September 2015 our Apocalypse Engine Bundle presented a new collection of RPGs Powered by the Apocalypse — that is, based on Vincent Baker’s fantastically original 2010 RPG Apocalypse World. From supernatural romance to smuggling to pro wrestling, these wide-ranging games let you pick a playbook, try your Moves, roll 2D6, and play to find out what happens. Our Starter Collection included five titles (retail value $37) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Apocalypse World (lumpley games, retail price $10): The revolutionary game of post-disaster action and story. Did you see Fury Road? This is that.
  • Monsterhearts (Buried Without Ceremony, retail $10): The messy lives of teenage monsters. (Previously presented in our April 2013 Bundle of Holding +2.)
  • Monsterhearts: Blood of Misty Harbour (Buried Without Ceremony, retail $5): A complete three-episode mini-series for Monsterhearts.
  • Bootleggers: Smuggling Run (One Seven Designs, retail $7): Crooks smuggling alcohol in 1930s Seattle. By John Harper, designer of Blades in the Dark and Lady Blackbird.
  • Cartel (Magpie Games, retail $5): “Ashcan edition” of Mark Diaz Truman’s game of Mexican narcofiction in the Sinaloa crime ring.
