Full‑size Preview

SuperAge: Role Playing Game



SuperAge is a fully immersive, top down designed supers game built to emulate the action we see in TV shows, movies and comics. With dozens of pages of full color art, this book is beautiful.

SuperAge may be the first RPG designed around comic action. Since the emphasis is placed on comics and not characters, SuperAge provides a unique play experience.

With dozens of powers and an intuitive and open ended character build system, you can build any type of super.

SuperAge is easy to learn and plays very quickly. Rounds sometimes can last mere seconds, keeping you embroiled in action.

The entire system has been designed top down. This means that all design aspects have been created to provide the best supers RPG experience.

Included in SuperAge is:

  • 80+ Powers, each may be taken up to 3 times
  • Special Attacks and Defenses
  • 20+ Quirks, add flare to your hero
  • 50+ Unique Supers of Interest to add to your Campaign
  • 42+ Pages of unique tiled Art!!! - that's a 42 page book of just beautiful color art
  • Super City campaign with location of interests and maps

What’s the page count of the book?

Only 180 pages but the photos of the book (its thickness) make it look like a 400+ page product. Proper con if you ask me; I've sent back my hard copy because for £45 it's a ripoff. The pdf may be worth it though.

I had a minor issue with downloading the .pdf (at 9:45pm), and Darius at Strange Machine Games got back to me in less than 15 minutes to help me. That is customer service to applaud.

For some reason it's not allowing me to leave a review but..I guess this is a good place to leave a review too? I really really enjoyed this game. I've tried a plethora of supers games over the years and they've either been too crunchy for my tastes, didn't emulate the genre like I wanted, were offshoots of other systems or were lacking something, sometimes major things like an actual character creation system. I've considered making my own system, which is something that I've toyed with off and on for years..then I discovered SuperAge, which is actually really close to the system I was working out in my head. I'm ecstatic and I love the way the system works. This is a real hidden gem and it's a shame that more people don't know about it. Oh yeah, and as a bonus you can make a speedster without it being over powered. (I'll keep checking back and if the actual Reviews section becomes available to me I'll post this there too...with a 5 star rating!)

Not until offset printed stock has run out. Please visit our Pledge Manager to order a copy before the retail price increase occurs. Go through our Kickstarter page to get to the Pledge Manager.

The pledge manager page states that the project is closed. Does this mean that there will be a PoD option coming soon? Thanks!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
