INFINITY RPG FREE Quickstart
Publisher: Modiphius
by Stefano V. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 10/26/2015 06:10:13

I found the Free Quickstart Preview of the "Infinity R.P.G." (developed by Modiphius Games, Great Britain, for a copyright patent of Corvus Belli, Spain) that was available from the Drivethru Site one of the More Beautiful (if not the MOST Useful, Entertaining, Interesting) products that were shared for review by the worldwide Gamers Community. I followed the Infinity brand from its inception as a very simple Miniature Tabletop Wargame with "Cyberpunk Background" to grow into the absolute BEST Skirmish Game with a very rich, detailed and original "Sci-Fi Manga Aesthethics". I tried unsuccessfully in the past to port this awesome Gameworld to My Players using systems ranging from the "Talsorian Cyberpunk 2020" to TSR / WOC "D20 Modern - Future" with low success ratio. Now that a very interesting Game Developer has shouldered this uneasy burden then there is a factive possibility to have no fatigue for obtaining an entertaining R.P.G. Experience into this richly detailed Background. The Modiphius "Game Developers Sub-Forum" has signaled that they reached the Kickstart Funding for starting to create fully at list 2/3 (Two Thirds) of the planned Manuals. They said that the Backers should start to receive their promised PDF towrds the Christmas 2015. Printed paperback Manuals would NOT available for general dissemination to the world community prior the end of 2016, so I HEARTHILY recommend the "DrivethruR.P.G." Staff to try to bargain with Modiphius the possibility of have the PDF Manuals to sell as soon as possible. In My humble opinion these could be a potentially excellent "Big Seller" for Drivethru, maybe comparable with prospective "Big Scores" like the "Exalted3" Project or the "Pathfinder" Series.....at least judging from the enthusiastic interest of the various Forum Communities eagerly expecting the non-backers release of the various Manuals (that are currently still "Work-In-Progress" even for the Basic one)

Heavy Gear Blitz! Tabletop Wargaming - Living Rulebook
Publisher: Dream Pod 9

If really find that the product was extremely well made and excellently rendered and prepared (with all the due inevitable problems arising from heavily detailed colour splash-pages and comic-styled illustration).

From the "Tabletop Miniature Wargame" point of view I feel it condensated very well all the various nuances of the Combat System; especially for the use of customized troops and vehicles (I found very useful the many details about Earth-based Armed Forces, as the older products of the line that I owned were seriously lacking about Hover-Tanks and G.R.E.L. Clone-Troopers).

Even more excellent were the various Background parts about the various factions; the ones native of the "Terranova Homeworld" were very well written, with a rich and detailed history; the Timeline Flowchart was concise, yet rich of details and allowed the pinpointing of "Focal Events" in the Gameworld, to recreate pivotal moments of the History as "Epic Battles".

Exceeding even this the "Black Talon" section was interesting, cleverly written in a almost-novelization manner and full of interesting tidbits about the "Liberati Freedom Fighters" that compounded the short, yet fulfilling, section of the "Caprice Homeworld".

Although short and concise, the sections about Earth and the other Colonies and their detailed (or hypothethical) whereabouts were anyway very interesting and detailing what were only lesser footnotes of the Gameworld Background in the older material that I collected in 20 years of following the Dream-Pod9 line of products.

As "Icing on the Cake" the two Polar-View Maps of the "Terranova Homeworld" and the "Equatorial Map" were extremely useful, well made, rendered in a precise manner and also very Print-Friendly even in large formats.

I think that this is a well-rounded product on-spot with the HIGHEST expectations of the best standards of quality offered both by DrivethruRPG and Dream-Pod9 in ALL of his possible edges.
