“In the 1980s strange things happened everywhere!”
Bloat Games proudly presents our latest tabletop roleplaying game: SURVIVE THIS!! Dark Places & Demogorgons. Dark Places & Demogorgons is an OSR RPG set in the 1980s where you play as teenagers from a small town where strange occurrences began popping up all around. The adults seem lost as what to do, the police are as clueless as ever and aren’t helping. It’s up to you and your friends to figure out what’s going on and stop it from happening again!
Taking advantage of the Open Gaming License, Dark Places & Demogorgons use the familiar ruleset of 1970s Original Fantasy Roleplaying Game with some added modern mechanics and concepts to make a uniquely fun and entertaining game experience.

Risks and challenges
The game is written, play-tested, laid out, filled with a mixture of commissioned and stock art and review copies have ordered to print.
There is of course risks and while I believe that I have been thorough in my research of the Do's and Dont's while running a Kickstarter, this is my first Kickstarter, so I'm planning for surprises and hiccups along the way. This is why the promise date is in May 2018. I feel very confident that I can deliver the rewards well before then but I recognize the need for a contingency in case problems arise. I will stay transparent in my campaign and will update the backers frequently to what is happening and the current status of things.
Some potential problem areas that I will be monitoring closely are: Printing, Shipping, Additional Playtesting or Art ordering if any thing extra is added during the compaign to name a few.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
