Sure, you can play the kid-friendly version, or you could try for the most hardcore post-apocalypse game ever.
Diana Jones and ENnie award winning Bully Pulpit‘s best known for making its own games, and if you’ve been paying any attention you’ve probably heard of its Fiasco, a game of overweening ambition and poor impulse control. Now Bully Pulpit’s reaching out to another designer for the first time, and publishing Marshall Miller’s rabbit-centric title The Warren. If ever you’ve wanted to avoid being shot, gassed, eaten by cats, or just to enjoy a quiet silflay on a warm afternoon, this could be the title for you.
“Steve [Segedy] and I both love this game, and have run it at home and at conventions for more than a year. It started out solid and has only gotten better,” says Bully Pulpit’s Jason Morningstar. “One thing I love is the wide range of tones The Warren can support – from gentle animal stories suitable for children to some of the most hardcore ‘Powered by the Apocalypse’ action I have ever experienced. It’s surprisingly broad and deep.”
The Warren lets you take the role of intelligent rabbits trying to make the best of a world filled with things that want to kill and eat them, or just kill them. Before this, it was also known as Lapins and Lairs. Illustrator Rachel Kahn has been brought on board to give the project a unique look, and if you were a Hillfolk backer then you know just how wonderful that look is likely to be.
If all goes according to plan, The Warren should be in stores by spring 2015. That gives you plenty of time to brush up on your Lapine.
