Riders: A Game About Cheating Doomsday – Sean’s Pick, 111615

Caias Ward‘s been doing this a while, and he’s brought out a new, intriguing game that steps pretty far outside the usual boxes. The product text of Riders really sells it well –

So let me get this straight:

We’re mortal servants of the Four Horsemen, who want us to ride around and witness the End of Days. But we don’t want the world to end, so we are cheating Doomsday?

Some sympathetic angels gave us an ancient Babylonian rite which lets us know what events will trigger The End, so we can go and fix the problems and avert Kingdom Come?

And both Heaven and Hell want us dead dead dead because they think we actually want to pull the trigger and they aren’t sure who will win yet?

But we get to save the world?

Command powers of Conquest, War, Famine, and Death?

Ah Hell… Let’s Ride!
