#iHunt: The RPG

I haven't had a chance to play yet, but I am working on getting a group together for that purpose. Having gone through the rules though, it seems like a strong game with a lot to say, and a bit of poignant commentary thrown in to really give you a sense of what this is about. It is shamelessly and unapologetically direct about the world in which the game is set (and about the world in which we live) and through that tone is able to give a strong sense of why iHunt really is a necessary addition to the large pantheon of RPGs.

They say that gaming is for everyone, and while that is "true" the reality is that for so long marginalized groups have been given the short end of the stick, be it through outdated depictions and representations or through interactions with GMs and other players. As a personal experience being LGBTQ, there is always a struggle of whether it is safe to come out to any given table. While that is always a risk no matter what is played, iHunt's themes really set things up in such a way as to make those within marginalized groups feel that they are welcome by the very nature of the game itself. That is not to say that the game is only enjoyable to people with those experiences, but there is something special about a game that focuses on those (for lack of a better word) categories, rather than just including them as some sort of diversity checkbox.

To keep this review from going on longer, I will just say this: I haven't been this excited to play something in a very long time.

Also, you should check out the iHunt novels. While not necessary for playing the game, they are a fantastic read and can give quite a bit of inspiration.
