About this project

MADCAP: Screwball Cartoon RPG for Tabletop

$7,032

214

Back again for the first time, despite popular demand... it's the singular, particular, jugular and avuncular MADCAP, the role-playing game of cartoon screwball action! It's the game that stars the best person we could find on short notice: YOU. And you'll have a supporting cast of your friends, your compatriots, your hangers-on, your contemporaries -- heck, anyone who could hold a pencil by the right end, they could play this game with you!

Update for 12-Jun: We've uploaded some beta footage in one of our updates, which you can find at this link.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

When Friedrich approached us with their idea of post-scarcity, trans-human science fiction, we were intrigued but also cautious. We also had a strong sense of deja vu, since we'd already made the FARFLUNG game months ago. So we politely showed him the door and went to talk to Spencer, instead.
When Spencer approached us with their idea of a screwball cartoon game, where the rules served as a framework to improv comedy, we were intrigued but also cautious. Again. And just like the last time, we'll be able to offer people early-access copies. Our track record speaks for itself. We've been crowd-funding before there was a Kickstarter, and our company remains committed to diversity in books, games, and entertainment. Thank you for your support.
