CHECKER BPG ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF SUPERHERO 2044 RIGHTS!
Checker Book Publishing Group has announced that it has purchased the publishing rights to the classic super hero themed role playing game Superhero 2044 from Gamescience Publishing.
Superhero 2044 was the first comic book-themed role playing game at the dawn of the industry appearing in 1977 shortly after the explosive launch of early games like Dungeons and Dragons and Runequest. Innovative for the time period, it featured such specific rules as classifications for differing types of super heroes, melee rules unique to super heroes, a ranged combat system, point based character construction, and eventually a comprehensive defined list of super powers.
COMING TO KICKSTARTER IN FALL OF 2017
The Grand Daddy of all Superhero role playing games returns with an updated SUPERHERO 2044 version which will (re)set the standard for the super hero game genre. With extensive artwork by the industry’s top artists and upgraded game play by some of the hottest and most respected game designers this milestone in the industry returns with a vengeance in Fall of 2017. The game will also expand to include a collectible card version as well as a comprehensive pre-designed super hero universe.
This game will launch on Kickstarter in Fall of 2017.
