Man, work has been nucking futz these past two weeks, but I wanted to pass on this brief item:
Veteran game designer Greg Stolze has a new game he's selling using the ransom system (first used to sell his Meatbox Massacre boardgame.) The new product is called ...in Spaaace! It's a sci-fi comedy rpg inspired by Futurama, Hitch Hiker's Guide, and crap like that. The rules of the ransom system are slightly different this time: donations must be at least $10, but they go into an escrow account held by a third party. If the goal of $750 by August 23rd isn't met, then everyone gets their money back.
