Speaking of Kenneth Hite and horror role-playing, Hero Games announced their 2011 and 2012 release schedules this past weekend at Dundracon. Third on the list for 2012 is Horror Hero, co-written by none other then Mr. Hite. And later in the year is Cthulhu Hero, also with Hite contributing. Talk about cornering the horror genre role-playing supplement market.
I’m a fan of Hite and his disparate works — Suppressed Transmission, The Day After Ragnarok, and GURPS Cabal, to name three — but how many times can you write horror genre supplements before they start sounding alike?
