Ah! With great satisfaction I think I've finally assembled the structure of the game I'm writing for Kapcon 19.

It's rather done my head in. But I'm happy to have got something down that I think will work.
Next step: actually start *writing* it. (Then playtest! Eeek, time time time...)

Yes, it's another revival. I don't feel nostalgic but I sure seem to be acting like I am...

Aliens: Endgame
Endgame is an intense character-based drama in a horrific world.

In 1995, the weekend-long event Gametime launched a series of large-scale games in Wellington inspired by the Aliens film franchise. The last of these was Apocalypse in December 1999, which found Earth overrun by the alien creatures. Now, ten years later, Endgame will take you back to that blighted planet and give you a chance to seek out its future.

(Note: Anyone looking for a battle scenario will be disappointed. No, you don't get to be a Colonial Marine, you don't get to drive an APC, and you don't get to fire a pulse rifle.)

You've been given the rather awful first round too, for what seems like a pretty intense game. Marcus got it working last year, I'm sure you're up to it, but better you than me. :)

First round - yeah, I volunteered for that, and now I'm kinda staring it down. I'm just going to hit it as hard as I can and see what happens...

But I'm sure someone will run 3:16.
