Press Releases Politically Incorrect Games (PIG) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the intellectual property rights to the Story Engine and Maelstrom Storytelling roleplaying products originally created and published by Hubris Games.

Story Engine is a set of universal rules that were designed to run story-based games without the vestiges of wargaming that shackle so many other "storytelling" games. Its relative rather than linear scale accommodates everything from gothic and film noir settings to heroic fantasy and super-heroes. Action is resolved in whole scenes and can turn crucial moments into dramatic scenes. Both dice and diceless play is supported, and coupled with its innovative mechanics, Story Engine adapts seamlessly to any genre, providing fluid and fun games that focus on story and not the rules.

Maelstrom Storytelling presents a world of shifting realities, all tied together by one consistent storm. Home to alien cultures, Leonardan magic, gunpowder and pseudo-science, the game caters to different styles of play. From piracy on the high seas of the Outer Crescent to illegal duels at the Queen's Amphitheater, this setting touches on magic, science, and the world of dreams. Maelstrom Storytelling is a stand-alone game or can be used as a sourcebook for Story Engine.

Story Engine is now available once again in PDF format, and Maelstrom Storytelling and its supplement Dacartha Prime are planned for re-release in PDF format shortly. While PIG has plans for further development of both products, the specific announcements are to be made at a later date.

Incorporating one of the first e-publishing RPG companies, Politically Incorrect Games is known for its diverse line-up of clear and concise roleplaying games, and its commitment for developing new ways of working with downloadable content. PIG's current game lines include genreDiversion games such as HardNova 2 and Coyote Trail for low-cost, ready-to-play entertainment; Iron Gauntlets for customizable heroic fantasy gaming; Active Exploits Diceless for universal diceless roleplaying with that familiar 'dice' feel; Two-Fisted Tales for thrilling pulp action; Rune Stryders for mixing fantasy and magic with living machines; and more.

Press Releases

Indianapolis, Ind. – In 2007, Firefly Games takes fans back to the prehistoric age of gaming with a licensed new edition of Og, designed and written by Robin D. Laws.

The new edition of Og, the classic comedy game of cavemen (and cavewomen) dealing with dinosaurs, limited vocabularies, and other challenges, will boast a cutting-edge ruleset redesigned from the ground up.

“Cavemen are cool, and comedy cavemen are even better,” said publisher Patrick Sweeney of Firefly Games. “I look at Og as an ancestor of the indie game design movement. It has an offbeat focus and a truly innovative core concept – playing with a severely restricted list of words – just like many modern indie games. So the chance to reinvent Og in light of the new approaches to rules design we’re seeing today is just too good to pass up.”

Wingnut Games first published Og: The Role Playing Game in 1995, with a second edition, Land of Og, appearing in 2000.

“Og is more fun than you can shake a club at!” said Aldo Ghiozzi, the original designer of Og. Ghiozzi continued, “Og fits perfectly with the Firefly Games lineup, and I can’t wait to see their evolution of the game.”
