The more I think about this, the more I wish it was out already! Mutant Future is fun, has provided an outlet where I get paid for writing GW material and has a lot of material in the OSR movement to draw on. But it wouldn't kill me to see another author's vision of what GW could have been. And if I am lucky, maybe I will be able to write for MCC as well as GW.

It got funded in less than 24 hours.

I like the ideas behind patrons and mutations, can't wait to finally read it come this winter or spring.

It is up to $70,000+ and there is still 3 weeks to go. All but the last stretch goal have been achieved. I wonder if they will add any more if the count hits $80,000+.

$88,000 now and a bunch of new stretch goals have been listed. I hope it makes the 135,000 goal as the data orb sounds interesting.

And then I saw the estimated delivery date. August next year? wacko.gif

The creator of one Kickstarter I've backed wrote: "First off, let me start by saying that we're going to have to push delivery of X back a month, into January. "

That was December, 2011.

I wouldn't be concerned if the writer and Goodman Games (whose founder has better business credentials than most in the hobby) allow a sensible time to deliver a complete game with multiple stretch goals.

That right there is why I've pretty much given up on Kickstarters. The only one to run without a hiccup was Shannon Appelcline's for the Designers and Dragons set, although I'll admit Rich Burlew's delays are understandable due to crippling his hand like that.

I downloaded the free preview & introductory adventure. Looks interesting & definitely old-school RPG style. I would be interested in any MCC adventures. I'm not interested in learning or using a new system but I can always use new adventures. I can convert the stats to Alternity which is what I have been using for my GW campaigns for years.

You mean it still hasn't been delivered yet, Jim?

And I expect good stuff from Goodman. I don't think they have failed yet. But an entire year for a book that has been being written for a year or more already? The stretch goals can come later, esp as each is only going to be 16 or so pages long.

I recently got Critters, Creatures & Denizens from Congnition Pressworks, a Dungeon Crawl Classics supplement that has a fair number of animals and monsters as well as mutations. It is not as amazing as Liber Arcanum, his wizard supplement, but it should be useful for MCC as well.

4 days to go and over $130,000. The Orb sounds much like a magic 8 ball.

Almost $207,000 by more than 2000 people.

For an adaptation of a game that has lasted 40 years and yet has "no fans"*, I think that is pretty awesome.


If you have to ask, just look at the subforum you are reading.
