“The game we play is a version of Vincent Baker’s Apocalypse World, Monster of the Week. We’ve been long familiar with the *World hacks, playing through Dungeon World and Monster Hearts and even World Wide Wrestling RPG, as well as highly anticipating upcoming projects, like Dead Scare on kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sandandsteam/dead-scare-an-rpg-of-blood-splattered-white-picket/description) and while Monster of the Week hews closer to the original Apocalypse World, its setting and the way the mechanics tie into it are exactly what we’re after.

So, yes, technically, this could be yet another fantasy gamer comic. But I prefer to think of it as a writers’ room, where the name of the game is Write an Interesting Script.”
