Announcing Forsooth!

That’s right folks. Today we officially announced the release date for our first self-published game, Forsooth! The RPG of Shakespearean Proportions. It’s an update on our 2011 Game Chef-winning game of the same name, but much expanded, with updated rules, new game modes, new player aides, and a ton more.

For those who haven’t played the original, Forsooth! is a fun, simple, and usually hilarious game that you can play with basically anyone. There’s no GM, and no need to prepare anything in advance. Just bring your imagination to the table, along with your most over-the-top attempt at an Elizabethan dialect.

Forsooth! will be hitting on June 22, both as a paperback print volume, and as a pdf and ebook. Stay tuned to SpoiledFlushGames.com for more details and previews as they become available. For more about the game, check out the Forsooth! page.

Here’s the press release we sent out today:

Forsooth!, the Ultimate Shakespeare RPG, Coming in June

Spoiled Flush Games announces first self published project

BOSTON, Mass., May 31, 2012 — Hear ye, hear ye! Spoiled Flush Games today announced their first self-published game: Forsooth!, an RPG of Shakespearean proportions. A greatly expanded update of the Game Chef 2011-winning game of the same name, Forsooth! challenges players to improvise one of the bard’s greatest lost work for the amusement of their friends. It will be available in paperback, pdf, and ebook on June 22.

In Forsooth! players must use their wits, their hammiest acting, and some tactically deployed asides and soliloquies to win applause from their friends. They will swear solemn vows, and be challenged to either stick with them, or tear them asunder in dramatic fashion. And they’ll control multiple characters, making the game a true smorgasbord for roleplaying aficionados. The game plays in a single session, with no game master and no need for advance preparations. New features for this expanded version include:

  • Improved gameplay, with new mechanics like Motivations, Themes and Destinies
  • A Cliff Notes variant that packs a full play’s worth of action into half the time.
  • Cycle rules allowing you to create sequels to your favorite plays, for a multi-session campaign experience
  • Strange and deranged Fifth Folio plays, complete with pre-made casts you can pick up and play
  • And, as the Bard once wrote, “Much, much more!”*

Pricing will be announced soon. In the meantime, keep your eye on SpoiledFlushGames.com for previews!

*Seriously, it was in Merchant of Venice. Yes, we are taking it completely out of context.
