Nefertiti Overdrive: Ancient Egyptian Wuxia is a roleplaying game of kicking ass and taking names in Ancient Egypt from Fraser Ronald of Sword's Edge Publishing.
After his successful fundraiser to finance Centurion: Legionaries of Rome, Fraser has now launched a Kickstarter to pay for maps, art and layout on his new game.
This is not a historical game, but rather a mash-up of Ancient Egypt and kung-fu fighting.
As the Kickstarter page says:
"This isn't about history, mummies, or aliens building pyramids. This is about kicking badguys in the face. This is not a historical game. Its Egyptian setting is that of cursory knowledge gleaned from museums, comics, and the occasional action movie. You don't need to know about 25th Dynasty Egypt, you merely need to be excited about kicking a bad-guy in the nuts so he doubles over and you use him as a step to get you high enough to drive your knee into another bad-guy's face."One of things I find particularly appealing about this Kickstarter, and I'm seeing an increasing number of game producers going down this route, is that even for foreign investors - such as myself - the buy-in for a print copy is low.
This nets you a voucher to then purchase the hard copy at cost from DriveThruRPG, which, of course, eliminates the insane trans-Atlantic shipping charges other, less enlightened, Kickstarters feel they need to charge.
Sand dance over to the Nefertiti Overdrive: Ancient Egyptian Wuxia Kickstarter page to check out the straight forward options for backing this campaign and the rewards on offer.
Fraser needs to raise $5,000 by April 22 to make this a success.
