EN Publishing announced the license for the RPG last year around the same time as several other companies sharing new Judge Dredd related plans for the Rebellion 2000 AD property (see “'Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth' Card Game”). Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000 AD uses the What’s OLD is NEW (WOIN) game system which uses d6 dice pools to resolve actions and uses a “life path” character creation system. Players can choose to play a Judge, a Civilian, or a Perp from multiple character classes including humans, clones, robots, mutants, chips, gorillas and orangutans.
The campaign met its $9,900 goal in less than 10 minutes and has raised more than $84,000 from more than 780 backers as of this writing, and will continue through October 25. There is a retailer pledge level for a $26 deposit for (at least) 4 copies of the standard core rulebook, with the rest due at fulfillment, currently listed as January 2019. EN Publishing had all products approved by Rebellion before launching, so the Kickstarter is facilitating the print run of materials.
Trade release will follow backer fulfillment.
