Description
This sci-fi smorgasbord serves up 9 retro tales inspired by the pulp magazines of the 1920s - 1940s. It drops you into the deco chiseled cities of alternate Americana, airlifts you to exotic locales, then rockets you to the farthest reaches of yesterday’s tomorrows! Witness the otherworldly genesis of Wild Marjoram in a Chicagoland speakeasy as the violence of the all-female Killdeer Gang reaches vigilante-inspired fever pitch in "The Birth." Flying taxis fight for space over New York as Johnny Grant, Private Eye, sifts streets rife with murder and corruption in "The Maltese Spectrum." It's class-warfare in Citadel City as Pandora Driver and her Car of Tomorrow cruise the shadowy streets in search of one good cop in "Ready Fire Aim." Resources dwindle as aqua farming Region 5 Spaceport Terminus pushes maximum population density, and the balance between man and machine collapses in "Bloom." The fractured politics of the fractured 1920s Aether Age leaves a sheriff struggling to find the truth in "The More Things Change." Would Ace Rango rather be locked in battle with snarling space lizards or a temperamental, little girl when "Bedtime Stories are Boring?" World War II drags on into 1958 as one Australian airship officer seeks safe harbor before the lights go out during "Darkness Eternal: Over the South China Sea." In Fascist ruled skies over prohibition-era America, a rogue pilot risks all to bring down a gang of rocket pack raiders with "The Rocket Molly Syndicate." Captain Tony Lagarto's flying boat is hijacked by a lunatic Vinlander demanding transport to a place that doesn't exist in "Storming Shangri-La." Retro adventure awaits fans of dieselpunk, sci-fi, ray-gun gothic, and pulp magazines. Download if you dare!
