A tabletop RPG inspired by anime and video games such as the long running Zelda series (not to mention other classic, 16-bit era titles), BREAK!! launched on Kickstarter recently and has absolutely smashed its initial funding goal.

Currently well over 1000% of its target, it’s easy to see how BREAK!! has managed to find itself such an eager audience.

A lavishly produced, beautifully designed and illustrated 470 page book is on offer when you pledge – in either digital or physical formats.

Designed with accessibility and ease of use in mind, the pages of BREAK!!’s rulebook are filled with diagrams and infographics to make learning the game as straightforward as possible.

Its post apocalyptic fantasy setting is incredibly evocative of the colourful video game RPGs of the SNES era, as well as the action oriented anime that many fans grew up enjoying in the 90s.

Even the turn-based combat system seems to evoke those halcyon days we JRPG enthusiasts sat glued to the CRT, console controllers in hand.

Though the cover design and mechanics hearken back to 90s JRPGs, the illustrations throughout look as if they could easily be ripped from a lost anime series; everything has been designed with a great deal of care and attention.

You can check out the campaign for BREAK!! – and pledge, if it looks like it’s up your street – right here.
