Epoch: a roleplaying game of character-driven survival horror


Here's a game I'm going to reommend to you: EPOCH. I've got a copy of it right here and there'll be a proper review soon, but I'm going to give you a teaser as to what I thought of it - it's bloody brilliant.

It's a custom card based system that emulates the dynamics of your favourite horror movies no matter what the genre. Several players begin the game but only one or two might survive and it's down to the guile and cleverness of the players and the drama that unfolds.

It's a great, simple game for one-shots and I can recommend it. There'll be a review soon but I'm giving this one the thumbs up.
