I’m happy to say we have a real treat for you! It’s an interview with RPG developer and writer, Matthew Dawkins! He’s responsible for a lot of my favorite Vampire: The Masquerade products, a great Youtube content creator, and the developer of the They Came From series of comedy horror RPGs. We’re here to talk about his latest Kickstarter.
1. Can you describe what the They Came From series is all about?
The They Came From! series of games is an affectionate tribute to the various media genres we love and that inspire us. With Beneath the Sea!, we presented a game where you’re the protagonists in a 1950s b-movie. In Beyond the Grave! you played heroes in the stories of Hammer Horror, Amicus, and Roger Corman thrillers. In [CLASSIFIED]!, you became spies the likes of which appear in The Avengers, James Bond, and Mission: Impossible. Each They Came From represents a different genre of movie, TV show, or other media, and gives you all the tools you need to play a game utilizing those genres, all with a firmly light-hearted and entertaining tone.
