We unboxed (well, opened the book) for Tales From The Loop, and made a video

Hey all! Brian from the Critical Twits here. We made an unboxing video for the TFTL Kickstarter, which we thought people might enjoy or find instructive. It's here:

It's a bit quiet here but I'd love to know how people are finding the game - I have 3 players who are keen to play and 3 who couldn't give a solitary, and I'm wondering if it's proven divisive with anyone else? Those who are feeling less than excited are either a) not into the 80s, or b) don't want to play kids. Just our group?

Thanks Bryan. We have a lot of people saving up for either Star Trek Adventures or Fallout so theres that. The 80s were good fof me I was in my 20s, freshly divorced, in the army, stationed in Germany. Life was good.

To him and the friend of his friend;
But never a man

With one of his foeman's friends.

This game definitely looks interesting, from the visuals. Hopefully it generates more interest.

I've managed to rope some players from the local gaming group into playing, so we'll hopefully have a follow-up video or podcast coming soon!

Question for anyone more familiar with TftL than I...is it possible to play without the "weird science" tech? I'm not thinking of ditching the actual particle accelerator concept (that's just too cool), and I'm all for having the government experimenting with robots and the like to set up conspiracies to be uncovered by the PCs. But is it possible to still run the game as a "normal" 80s scenario, with the PCs gradually uncovering the weirdness?

I only ask because several members of my group are my daughter and some of her friends, and they're all obsessed with the 80s - the music, the clothes, the movies, etc - and are huge fans of shows like Stranger Things, and classic 80s movies like The Goonies, E.T., and the more fantasy-style 80s flicks like Big Trouble in Little China and Lost Boys. I just know that if I bring in stuff like hover trucks and giant robots as "mainstream" (and not as something to be uncovered) they'll be disappointed.

Is it feasible to run TftL in a similar vein? Or does it absolutely have to include the weird stuff in order to work?
