AARON WILLIAMS AND HERO GAMES ANNOUNCE PS238 ROLEPLAYING GAME


Cartoonist Aaron Williams and leading roleplaying game publisher Hero Games are pleased to announce that they've concluded a deal to design and publish a PS238 Roleplaying Game based on Williams' PS238 comic book about a school for young superhumans.
"I've been thinking about an RPG based on PS238 since I first created the comic," said Williams, who's also known for his Nodwick comic books and strips and many other works related to gaming. "Since PS238 is the story of a school for metahuman kids training to become superheroes, it's only natural to base the game on the best superhero RPG available Champions."
"We're all big fans of PS238 here at Hero, so we were really excited about the prospect of developing a PS238 Roleplaying Game when Aaron approached us with the idea," said Darren Watts, President of Hero Games. "This is an opportunity for us to work with a top-notch artist and a top-notch property to create a top-notch RPG."
"It's also an intriguing design challenge," said Steve Long, HERO System Line Developer. "PS238 is popular with children as well as adults, so we want to create an RPG that kids can play. Our simplified Sidekick rules have been used successfully to run games for young children, so we'll use a form of them for the PS238 RPG. We plan to include the rules in the book, creating a self-contained RPG for gamers of all ages."
The PS238 Roleplaying Game is tentatively scheduled for release in early 2008, and will feature an original cover by Williams. For further information contact:
