I mentioned Americana’s Kickstarter campaign several places: Americana RPG Kickstarter, Gaming Sunday Week of October 28, 2018 (posted a few minutes ago), and Gaming Sunday Week of October 21, 2018. You can view the Kickstarter campaign at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sandypuggames/americana-1. The company is doing a live stream tomorrow, you can submit a question before the stream using the Kickstarter link above (scroll down a bit), and you can see Pumba, https://ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/022/582/699/0e3c9a27aa4ba978b0adafb73f1f090e_original.png?ixlib=rb-1.1.0&w=680&fit=max&v=1537208406&auto=format&gif-q=50&lossless=true&s=e0f7d3dbc6f1d2dac92ffbf9236520cb:

AMA with special guest star, Pumba
Join us as we discuss Americana and run through character generation with a helping hand from our friend and yours, Pumba the Dog
I mentioned this in the above links, but thought it worth mentioning again.
It’s an unusual concept for an RPG (“A game of teenage rebellion and murder in a fantastical 50s that never was” – from the Kickstarter campaign), but you can get a free quick preview from DriveThru RPG (DTRPG): https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/256782/Americana–Preview-Quickplay-Pack?manufacturers_id=7386. You can also download the file at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1lpbN1YtyQ9J2yhGLtEfi43JjI9PqD9Hd.
If the campaign hits the final stretch goal of $12,500 ($10,160 pledged as of a little bit ago), they will add:
For our final stretch goal, we’re moving the timeline forward a little, and taking Americana to the shadows in our alternative setting; Americana: MIA
Delve into a fantasy cold war that never existed, take your team of spies across enemy lines, secure top secret information and uncover the conspiracy behind it all. Use high tech gadgets, classified magical powers and make deals with unspeakable beings to claim a victory no one will ever see. The Magical Intelligence Agency needs you!
This will also be a digital PDF detailing a whole host of new rules and mechanics, shifting the game from a murder mystery to exploring a conspiracy.
If you pledge $40 or more, you get some fun perks. Starting with naming a character or location.
