Needy Cat Games provided us with a few more morsels of information on their new project alongside George Mann as they get ready to bring Newbury & Hobbes to the tabletop.

This new game will put you in the role of these agents-of-the-crown, Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbes as well as their associates. You'll be protecting the Empire from deadly threats like the horrifying Cult Of Menamhotep. This game is narrative-driven and will actually have an impact on the ongoing series, each character being affected by the events in the game as future stories are told.

I am a big fan of narrative games and so this really hits the right note with me. I must admit I'd not heard of Newbury & Hobbes before Needy Cat Games got involved but I'm excited to find out a lot more about these Pulp-style adventures.

The game itself will be coming to Kickstarter Summer 2019 so you've got some time to do some reading in! They actually have some free fiction to help you dip your toe HERE so there's no excuse not to give it a look.

We've seen that games can be a fascinating way of telling stories with the likes of Near & Far, Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective and Legacy Of Dragonholt to name a few and I am very interested to see where this goes.

We got to chat with Sophie, the lead designer on the game, James and George about the project on the Weekender just gone so you can learn more about what's happening with the game just here...

Make sure to give this one a watch!

Let us know if you'll be keeping an eye on this one...
