Gen Con 2015: Pinnacle Announces Fear Agent, Goon, and Flash Gordon RPGs
At Gen Con 2015, Pinnacle Entertainment Group, the makers of Savage Worlds, Deadlands, and many other games, previewed its upcoming releases for 2015 and beyond.
Pinnacle previewed previously announced properties such as Deadlands Lost Colony, Necessary Evil 2, and Weird War I, as well as several new surprise licenses.
The first announcement was for Fear Agent, a comic series by Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña. Fear Agent was published by Dark Horse Comics, and tells the tale of Heath Huston, a cynical Texan who ventures into space to battle the aliens who destroyed the Earth. Fear Agent is a high-action, thrill-filled race through space and time.
Pinnacle’s second announcement was for another Dark Horse Comic series, Eric Powell’s The Goon. This long-running, award-winning, tongue in cheek pulp crime series is laced with horror and humor.
Pinnacle’s most unexpected announcement was for the Flash Gordon roleplaying game. The design team played the iconic music by Queen and then displayed the well-known Flash Gordon logo to massive fanfare from the assembled crowd. No other information was released about the project, but Pinnacle handed out buttons to the attendees and afterward sold retro-style Flash Gordon t-shirts at their booth.
