Tokyo Rain

First Appearance: Deadpool

by on Oct.08, 2009, under News

I just got a playtest report back that knocked my socks off —  really, just a designer’s dream. It was incredibly detailed about what they did, what results they got, what they liked, what they didn’t like, etc. And, as an ideal playtest report should, it both largely reaffirms the general structure of the game and pointed out some rough areas that can now be easily polished up.

But the coolest part for me was the color. They ran two sessions. One was an Asian-themed standoff between an operator and his onetime best friend and training partner. The other: Deadpool vs. Black Tom Cassidy. I’ve always thought the system would translate very well to some other genres, and I’m happy to see that in practice. But mostly … Dude! It’s Deadpool vs. Black Tom Cassidy!

    That is pretty much the coolest thing I’ve heard all day.

    This sounds great! I am an avid gamer and would really like to get this game when it comes out. I wish I wish I wish I knew back when that you were looking for playtesters!

    Even though I have my own website and books check out the gaming blogs I write for buzzy multimedia!

    How can I get an alert when this games come out? Will it be on drive-thru rpg?

    Thanks for your interest, Theresa. I guess the obvious way to keep tabs on the game is to subscribe to the feed. As we approach, though, I’ll be doing a lot more press. Hopefully, it will be hard to miss. We will be selling on DTRPG among other places.

    Glad to help. We really enjoyed it. I just wish Mike and I had more time.
