Last week, I talked about a promising new RPG of science fiction horror, Cold and Dark, from Chronicle City Games.
I say promising because any time an RPG includes stats for alien beasts that scuttle around remote asteroids, deadly secrets from ancient star-faring civilizations, and the threat of genocide through an infectious madness, you know you’re in for some great gaming.
Shortly after the post went live, I heard from Angus Abranson at Chronicle City:
The article on Cold & Dark is great, thanks. The only thing I’ll add is that (yesterday) we posted up a free 65-page Quickplay for the game which also includes an adventure so people can ‘try before they buy.’
You can download the Quickplay via our webstore here.
Woo-hoo! What makes a great game even better? Free stuff! Thanks, Chronicle City. You’re all right.
It’s our duty to pass this news along to you, naturally. Because we look out for you. Especially in regards to great games and free swag.
Now you have no excuse not to check out Cold & Dark. I expect a steady stream of reader reports on epic gaming sessions. Especially ones in which you neglected to bring along sufficient ordinance and your team ran out of ammo somewhere in a dark corridor far, far below the surface. Those are my favorite.
Good hunting, people.
