Save the Day is a rules light superhero role playing game designed with kids in mind, without ignoring the demands of seasoned gamers. Save the Day uses a system developed for the ENnie Nominated Katana Schoolgirls vs Zombie Furries, Snowball Wars and Kickstarter-funded Darkfast Dungeons. It’s designed to emulate comic book action and allows for lightning-quick character creation. With the Advanced Edition greater detail and customization allows the players and game master a chance to create any hero they can imagine. Designed and created by two time nominated ENnie Award artist and writer David Okum, Save the Day is sure to please comic book fans and gamers alike.

Updated Total (including Paypal): $7,749 (updated May 16/15)

Risks and challenges

The best laid plans of mice and men can be thwarted by unexpected events that might delay the production of Save the Day, but the time allotted is well within a comfort zone similar to what was used with previous releases such as Snowball Wars and the Ennie-nominated Katana Schoolgirls vs Zombie Furries and the successfully delivered Darkfast Dungeons Kickstarter from 2014.
Every effort will be made to overcome any setbacks in delivering the base game and all of the add-ons and unlocked stretch goals. Some stretch goals may have extended deadlines if the project increases in size.
The game itself has been in existence in one way or another since the early 90s so there has been quite a bit of play testing. There are some rules clarifications that need work and layout, but otherwise the game itself is totally fleshed out.
