On 24th October Mongoose Publishing launched a Kickstarter for a reboot of classic 1980s dystopian RPG Paranoia, with Spaaace’s James Wallis as the game’s lead designer as well as consultant on the crowdfunding campaign. It blew past its goal of £30,000 inside nine hours, and within a day had passed £50,000.
With a co-ordinated campaign across social media including podcast and website interviews, and AMAs on Reddit and RPG.net, as well as convention appearances by the design team, plus press articles in the likes of Forbes magazine, the Paranoia Kickstarter looks set to be one of the highest-funded tabletop RPG crowdfunding efforts in history.
Wish us luck.
