The Official PLANET OF THE APES Role-Playing Game is coming to Kickstarter soon!

The Official PLANET OF THE APES RPG will challenge every idea you have ever had about a role-playing game. You will be thrust onto a planet where humans are the lowest order of living things — and the superior beings are apes. It’s the evolutionary process but in reverse.

Pre-register for the PLANET OF THE APES RPG today!

Become an intellectual Chimpanzee who seeks to better apekind through science and exploration. Choose an Orangutan statesape whose weapons are philosophical debate, political savvy, and the power of the Sacred Scrolls themselves. Perhaps a Gorilla soldier is more your style—honor-bound to protect Ape City and lead aggressive expansions into new territories. 
What else, if not an ape? Be a time-lost astronaut struggling to grasp a world gone insane. Become a mute tribal human forced to scavenge for resources as you are hunted by murderous gorillas on horseback. The rules even allow you to play mutant survivors who use the power of their minds to turn their enemies against each other. 
Your adventures in this world of madness will take you to the ruins of a world destroyed—see what remains of the Statue of Liberty, the ostentatious Ape City, the foreboding Forbidden Zone, and the mysterious mutant undercity. It is a world defined by the stark contrasts of brutality and civility. Are you ape enough to handle the truth about the world you live in or will you lose your mind to it?
Built on the official Magnetic Variant (D6MV) of the classic D6 System role-playing game rules created by West End Games, PLANET OF THE APES is easy to learn yet full of challenges to master. With settings and lore written by a team of celebrated writers and designers under the lead of science fiction novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska, this core rulebook contains all you need to roleplay in this upside-down world where apes evolved from humans.
