Hot on the heels of the upcoming Amazon Studios series, Free League Publishing has revealed a starter set for the Tales from the Loop roleplaying game will arrive this Spring. The starter set will make for a perfect introduction into the strangely nostalgic, yet utterly alien, 1980s of Simon Stålenhag’s artwork. The core game has won numerous awards and newcomers will be able to see what all the buzz has been about this April when the Tales from the Loop Starter Set arrives, carrying an MSRP of $29.99.
From Free League:
As the robot thundered across the rye field towards the police van I realized a line had been crossed, and that it had been crossed many hours earlier that day. Maybe it happened when we broke into the warehouse down at Sätuna, when Olof found that strange backpack. Strange that I didn’t realize it then – when Olof slipped his hand into the big glove and the Thing under the tarp came to life. Or did it happen even earlier, when we ran away from home before lunch? Summer days are so full of events, it’s hard to remember how they all fit together.
Simon Stålenhag is the internationally lauded artist and author of Tales From the Loop and Things From the Flood, narrative art books that stunned the world with a vision of an alternate Scandinavia in the 1980s and ‘90s where technology has invaded the tranquil landscapes to form an entirely new universe of the eerie and the nostalgic.
Now, you can step into the amazing world of the Loop. In this tabletop roleplaying game based on Simon Stålenhag’s books, you’ll play teenagers solving spectacular mysteries connected to the Loop – just make sure you’re home in time for dinner. This Starter Set includes everything you need to begin:
- An illustrated rulebook explaining how to play the game
- A complete Mystery called The Recycled Boy
- Five pre-generated characters ready for you play
- A large, full-color map of land of the Loop
