Each year, Game Chef gives roleplaying game designers a challenge: produce a fully functional roleplaying game in just one week, using the ingredients given by the Master Game Chef.
It’s been a year since our last Game Chef entry, and we’re excited to put together another game for the contest. I didn’t have a ton of time this week to write, however, so I was forced to scribble notes and think about the mechanics without setting pen to paper. Today at 4pm, I finally got time to write. Marissa helped out by creating an awesome piece of cover art for the submission.
The result is Our Last Best Hope, a game of apocalyptic challenges and valiant, doomed heroes. In it, you and your friends play a team of the Earth’s best and brightest who are trying to stop the end of the world. Much like the movies Sunshine or Armageddon, your team has been selected for one, last shot at saving Humanity from a terrible Crisis. You, and your team, are our last best hope…

The game came together really well today, and I’m thrilled to submit it to the contest. Please give it a read and let me know what you think! Perhaps this Game Chef entry will turn into another successful Kickstarter project.
