Free League’s Blade Runner role-playing game just hit Kickstarter today, and it managed to snag over $800,000 USD in pledges within hours of the launch, possibly because of the bonus art print offered to early backers. This RPG propels you into the streets of Los Angeles as Blade Runners with unique specialties, personalities and memories. Aside from the core game, there will also be a line of expansions that push the boundaries of tabletop RPGs.
In addition to the core casework, this RPG will showcase key themes from Blade Runner, including corporate intrigue, existential character drama and moral conflict, all of which challenge the player characters to explore humanity during inhumane times. A physical starter set will set you back around $132 USD, and consists of a condensed rulebook, pre-generated characters, Electric Dreams (Case File for Blade Runners to crack), and a host of physical handouts. It does not however include the Honda Neo Fighter motorcycle. More information here.
