THE SIXTH GUN IS COMING TO A GAME NIGHT NEAR YOU
I don’t have a lot of experience when it comes to RPGs. I tried and failed to get a campaign started with Dungeons and Dragons and then again with one based on Wheel of Time. It just wasn’t in the cards. That might change with the debut of The Sixth Gun RPG based on the Oni Press comic from Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt. The Kickstarter campaign, launched by Pinnacle Entertainment Group, blew through its $6,000 goal in the first hour and is now sitting at more than $44,000 with 13 days to go.
Oni Press editor in chief James Lucas Jones said, "We've been thrilled to spend time with Cullen and Brian in the world of The Sixth Gun for the last 5 years. Now thanks to Pinnacle Entertainment Group, we get the opportunity to explore even more of the epic world the boys created! It's been immensely satisfying to see the Kickstarter smash past its funding goal in no time and we can't wait to see how many stretch goals of cool stuff we can hit in the next month."
The Sixth Gun artist and co-creator Brian Hurtt said, "Cullen and I have fantasized about a Sixth Gun RPG for years and to finally have it become a reality is a dream come true. We're blown away by the amazing response from both Sixth Gun and Pinnacle fans who made this happen! Now we're looking forward to see if we can cross the final stretch goal and take the opportunity to expand the scope of the game—and build on the canon of this universe we created—in the form of a new exclusive adventure for the RPG. Cullen and I already have plans for new characters, stories, and events... and even new comic material exclusive to the RPG which we hope to share with fans of The Sixth Gun, both old and new!"
The campaign is now turning its attention to stretch goals. Pinnacle has released two free Sixth Gun adventures via updates to the campaign. If it surpasses $48,000, original comic material will be added to a new adventure. Rewards include copies of The Sixth Gun RPG in both softcover or limited edition hardcover as well as collections of the comic series and a whole bunch more.
The Sixth Gun RPG Kickstarter campaign runs through June 25th.
