Secret Project X
Secret Project X (working title) is a realistic, modern RPG where ordinary people run up against the extraordinary. But is the extraordinary supernatural or explainable? Is it a ghost haunting the water park or is it the reclusive Old Man Jenkins? Is the man you're chasing a serial killer or a Vampire hunter? Anything is possible and the truth could be deadly.
This is a simulationist-style game with elegant rules that allow a compelling narrative to emerge through play. It uses an innovative, blackjack-style core mechanic that is intuitive and fun to master. You will find fast and realistic gunfights, along with rich sanity mechanics that help you get inside your character's mind.
