A new RPG where players take the role of normal people imbued with the power of the god. But divine power doesn't pay the rent.
We here at Third Eye Games are preparing for the release of our third game line, Part-Time Gods. Players will take on the role of normal, everyday people suddenly imbued with the divine Spark of a god. They must balance their mortal lives (friend, family, loved ones) with the pursuit of their godly existence (adventure, power, legend), constantly riding the line of losing what makes them human. While this may seem serious, no game of Third Eye Games’ is devoid of that touch of humor.
Part-Time Gods is written by Eloy Lasanta, who has already had great success with his other two games, Apocalypse Prevention, Inc. and Wu Xing: The Ninja Crusade. The game will have a great mix of ideas that will be familiar to fans of White Wolf’s “Scion” or Eos Press’s “Nobilis”, mixed with themes and moods of other works, such as “Dead Like Me” or the works of Neil Gaiman (not just “American Gods”). We hope that it will be a completely new approach to the genre. We also have the rising star, Melissa Gay, as our lead artist for the game and her style is perfect for giving Part-Time Gods just the right feel.
We are looking to raise $2500 to help with the production and initial print run for Part-Time Gods. Once completed, the book will sell for $15 for the PDF and $30 for the print, with a full-color cover and black & white interior. Plenty of great incentives can be gained by supporting us through this, our very first Kick Starter project, including credits, PDF copies, print copies, special t-shirts and even getting yourself in the game.
