Yesterday evening marked a banner evening for me. Not only did I get to do some development on a new game, but I also got to play in an RPG, something I haven’t done in far too long.

To add even more to the interesting factor, I was playing Welcome to the Meat Parade, an experimental game systems that’s being publicly developed by you, me and anyone else who wants to dip their hands in.

Brent, who you know from this site, has taken a very active roll in this project and hosted the first play test a few weeks ago. He hosted this one as well and recorded it via Hangouts Live for posterity sake. Here it is!

Welcome to the Meat Parade is a tabletop role-playing game actively developed by the public. It’s set in a post-scarcity world, about 60 seconds after all the AIs that control everything leave the planet. The singularity has happened and the machines left us out of it. Now it’s up to the billions of remaining people to try and squeeze out a living in a world gone mad.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
