Helluva Town has rocketed out the Kickstarter gate for Acheron Games. Drawing inspiration from the cartoons of the 1930s and creators such as Max Fleischer, Tex Avery and Walt Disney – with a sprinkling of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the art of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth for good measure – Helluva Town is a cartoon gangster RPG sure to appeal to longtime gamers and newcomers alike. The project funded in its first minutes. The Helluva Town core book clocks in around 80 pages and can reserve a copy of the hardcover (with PDF) for a $31.00 pledge, grab the physical art book (with PDF) for a $20.00 pledge, or score both together PLUS an animator screen and Helluva Town deck for a $63.00 pledge. This project is going to be a pretty quick one and only runs though July 15th. Expected delivery is April of Next year.

You can check out my Kickstarter preview right here.

About the project:

Helluva Town is an outraging tabletop role-playing game in which you play as a 1930s-style cartoon to live crazy adventures, using giant super-pimped weapons made by SCAM Ink, while you escape from the gangsters of the Ducko Family, dream (or fear) the return of the legendary Jimmy Rat, and above all MAKE EVERYTHING EXPLODE.

The game system is rules-light and narrative-driven, and is designed to be learned in FIVE MINUTES. Helluva Town is suitable for both hardcore players looking for a light and fun game, as well as for novices or even people without any previous gaming experience. 

Think of an RPG that mixes Cuphead, the Looney Tunes, and Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network productions with Goodfellas-style gangster movies and smart Who Framed Roger Rabbit?-style comedies, and you’ve only got ten percent of the madness of Helluva Town.
