Oni Press has announced a partnership with Pinnacle Entertainment Group, creators of the award-winning, best-selling Savage Worlds roleplaying game system. The companies are developing a licensed tabletop RPG based on the critically acclaimed ongoing series The Sixth Gun, by writer Cullen Bunn, artist Brian Hurtt, and colorist Bill Crabtree.
Bunn is a long time RPG player himself and collects games. The comic has a mix of genres including fantasy, horror, action, and—of course—gunslingers a-plenty. The series has created an in-depth world, perfect for the gaming experience.
Debuting for retail later in 2015, The Sixth Gun roleplaying game launches a Kickstarter starting on May 26th, to give fans of both The Sixth Gun comic and tabletop gaming an opportunity to pre-purchase the game with exclusive incentives and gaming accessories related to The Sixth Gun RPG. The highest tier reward, True Fan of The Sixth Gun ($600, limited to 5), offers backers one of everything, plus a few cool extras which aren’t possible in normal distribution channels—like the chance to play in a game at Gen Con Indianapolis Game Mastered by Cullen Bunn! For backers looking solely for digital game content, the reward tier is $25.
