About

DOOMSDAY is an Apocalypse™ Adventure Pack for use with any post-apocalyptic role playing system. Featuring full color player's guide with original artwork, beautifully illustrated poster maps, high-quality monster tokens and a thrilling nonlinear adventure.

DOOMSDAY

There are whispers of new horrors in the night: menacing shadows, blood-curdling screams, and startling tales of a strange phantom pleading for help but terrifying to look upon. 

A new threat grows on the horizon; fear hangs in the air. 

Will you dare journey to “ground zero” — a remote village in Switzerland where the Large Hadron Collider lies 300 feet beneath dirt and rock — to learn the truth behind the apocalypse and stop a new terror from rising? 

DOOMSDAY is an Apocalypse™ adventure pack that launches you on a journey to Switzerland to uncover what really happened at the Large Hadron Collider and prevent an ancient threat from destroying the world anew. 

  • Stand on the threshold of the Field of Fissures spanning miles of moonlit prairie 
  • Pilot the Gulfstream X9 at Mach 2 through unimaginable dangers
  • Gaze upon the legendary Spear of Artemis said to forever protect the innocent 
  • Survive the ever-changing vortex of mutant monstrosities 
  • Learn what really happened at the LHC on Doomsday and what is happening there now!

Introducing Dr. Butterford and an ancient power known simply as “The Physicists.”

This adventure pack contains a full color player's guide with original artwork, beautifully illustrated maps, high-quality monster tokens and a thrilling nonlinear adventure. DOOMSDAY works with any post-apocalyptic role playing system.

Why make DOOMSDAY?

My 9-year-old son and I often play games such as Gamma World on the weekends. We enjoy the futuristic genre but are saddened by the level of support these games receive. We know we are not the only ones feeling this way. So we decided to create our own adventure with a detailed story arc, high-quality monster tokens, color maps and charts ... all the cool things that most gamers would like but don't have the time or ability to make for their own campaigns. 

We really just want to make the best adventure we can for everyone to enjoy.

Is DOOMSDAY compatible with any post-apocalyptic role playing system?

DOOMSDAY can be used with any post-apocalyptic role playing system. The adventure pack provides the story arc, maps, tokens, charts and principal non-player characters. We have introduced a value system relative to the campaign that can be used to preserve the intended balance of gameplay in any system.

What are the pledge levels and rewards?

We are offering a variety of pledge levels as we hope to make DOOMSDAY accessible to anyone who wishes to back the project. Each pledge level is named for an actual project at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) which lies at the heart of our adventure.

Be a firestarter!  Help spread the word and ignite interest. Pledge $6 or more and receive a genuine APOCALYPSE pinback button as a token of our thanks and appreciation. And you can always choose to support higher pledge levels as the project unfolds.

Who is behind DOOMSDAY?

That would be me, John Mau, along with my 9-year-old son, Spencer. I have spent most of my professional life as a Creative Director for top-tier Fortune 500 companies. Spencer brings fresh perspective and outrageous fun to the mix. 

We call our joint venture APOCALYPSE which is powered by my own creative studio, Studio Q. Through the studio we have access to a variety of creative talent and established relationships with print and production vendors, all of which will contribute to the success of this project.  

A letter from Spencer.

Hi, I'm Spencer. My dad and I are creating an adventure for everyone to play. Not to give anything away ... but there are giant bats with electric tentacles that control lightning, a Mach 2 jet with plasma projectile machine-guns (PPMs), a swirling vortex of death from which the most foul monsters emerge, and a lot more. I hope you will support our project. It's really cool, and it's the only creative consultant job I can get. :)

Spencer

Risks and challenges

The risk for any Kickstarter backer lies in not receiving the reward promised for their pledge level once the project is fully funded.

What I can tell you is that DOOMSDAY has been well thought-out and planned by professionals who work daily in the creative arts sector. We understand how to take a project from concept to completion within a given timeframe. Because of this I believe the risk to a backer of DOOMSDAY at any pledge level is slight.

Progress will be routinely updated, and should something unforeseen occur, I will do everything in my power to make things right.
