Has anyone heard of the Die RPG?

It's soon to come from Kieron Gillen's, the creator of the Die comic. Dunno how many here are into comics but he does a great work on this one in terms of rpg experiences seen through time and age. The pitch for the comic at the Image page (the publishers) goes like this:

DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron’s in a rush, he describes it as “Goth Jumanji.” That only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in oversized debut issue—where fantasy gets all too real.

Here's an article in Polygon about it.


  • Very interesting read – thanks for the link!
  • The comic is great, for what it's worth--the implicit RPG in it is a kind of techno-fantasy pastiche that reminds me a little of Final Fantasy. It's cool.
  • Also, I've been wondering if there's any other game out there where each class gets one type of die each. I find that mechanic really interesting!
