Step into the alternate ’80s universe created by sci-fi artist Simon Stålenhag in this retro RPG, in the vein of ET and Stranger Things. Boulder City, Nevada is a small town with a lot of big ideas. The Department of Advanced Research into Teleportation runs one of the most advanced facilities for scientific research in the world. The four kids growing up there know that it’s just home. There are always stories about odd things going on out there in the desert, but it’s 1982 so most parents don’t really consider the world a dangerous place and kids stay out with their friends until the streetlights come on. Let’s see what mystery finds them and how they deal with the pressure of growing up and experiencing the weird at the same time!
This campaign has a sequel, Insert Coin: Floodwater in the Things from the Flood system!
