Pinnacle games came forward with information about their pseudo-secret product that has been drawing speculation from forum members for the last three or four months. Shane was dropping sly hints about the project all along, stirring the proverbial pot, and its finally been announced: Space 1889: Red Sands!
Savage Worlds is one of my favorite systems and I’m excited that they’re attempting to resuscitate Frank Chadwick’s setting. Stargazer pointed out that a German company Uhrwerk Verlag is working on a new version of 1889 as well, though I don’t know if they have plans for a translation for the colonies.
Regardless, I’m stoked about newer versions of 1889, as it feeds both my pulp and Victorian addictions simultaneously. I had been considering the idea of a Savaged (and modified) version of Victoriana from Cubicle 7 Entertainment, but this announcement may quell my interest in pursuing that for the moment.
In other Savage Worlds news, I’m looking forward to the release of Triple Ace’s Hellfrost later this month. Not that I need a new fantasy setting, but I’m still eager to see something fresh for the line.
