Hard City Noir RPG is Coming Later This Year from Osprey Games

Hard City (Osprey Games)Fans of noir styled roleplaying games will want to take note Osprey Games will be releasing Hard City later this year. The game, written by Nathan Russell, promises hard boiled action and mystery. There’s not concrete release date of MSRP just yet but I’ll guess the price will be in the ballpark of other Osprey RPGs; $35.00 or so.

About the game:

I woke with a start, my mouth tasting like an old glove and my head pounding from the events of the previous evening, though I wasn’t sure if it was the beating from Benny’s boys or the bottle of whiskey that had done the most damage. I lifted my eyelids like stubborn blinds to find my gaze fall on a dame with a hundred-dollar purse in one hand and a cheap bean-shooter in the other. I groaned and cursed myself for ever getting involved in this mess…

In Hard City, character creation is swift and simple, generating competent yet flawed individuals and focusing on what sets them apart as they walk the fine line between right and wrong. Fast action resolution places the emphasis on the momentum of the plot, while the sandbox setting provides evocative hooks for adventures – fight crooks, rescue the innocent, thwart blackmail plots (or start them!), or uncover corruption in the Mayor’s office.

Stalk the mean streets of a world filled with two-bit thugs, hard-nosed gumshoes, gangsters, and femme fatales, all trying to survive in the concrete jungle. With trouble around every corner, a secret on every lip, and a gun in every pocket, danger is never far away in the hard city.
