We are honored that On the Air has been nominated for an ENnie Award for the "Best Electronic Book" category.
In early 2019, Spectrum Games will release our first miniatures game, Urban Manhunt. This fast-playing "future sport" game offers an entirely different dynamic compared to the direct "player's group attacking the other player's group" set-up that miniatures gamers are accustomed to.
Urban Manhunt was designed to be not only a lot of fun, but also incredibly minimal in the monetary investment required to play. Each player really only needs one miniature.
We are offering a free 19-page PDF designed to give you an introduction to the setting and system, complete with killer artwork by Patrick Sullivan that truly defines the atmosphere and attitude of Urban Manhunt.
You can view the PDF here.

Spectrum Games is pleased to announce the release of On the Air!
The spirit of Old Time Radio lives again with On the Air, the storytelling RPG that faithfully emulates the action, excitement and mystery found in the radio programs of the 1930s and '40s. Construct a series, create a sponsor, whip up characters and you're ready to play. Once the series is created, very little prep time is required to play the game, thanks to the narrative structure of the Intention System.
Get ready to engage in an all-new way of narrating your character's actions... and don't forget to promote your sponsor's products to earn the potent Sponsorship Token! Each episode is allowed only a certain number of die rolls in order to depict the tight time restraints of those old programs, so you'd better make every action count!
According to Cynthia Celeste Miller, “Capturing the essence and nuances of Old Time Radio was a serious challenge. Given our reputation for faithfully emulating various genres, we knew we had to embrace all the aspects of the radio shows of the era, from sound effects, to sponsors to time restrictions. It had to feel authentic and make you step back and say ‘Whoah, this really is like being in an episode of an Old Time Radio show!’ I’m confident that we’ve done that.”
On the Air is best enjoyed by one Director and between one and three players. You'll need d4s, d6s and d8s.
It is available in PDF format here.
The price is $4.95 until Monday, April 2nd. After that, the price will revert to its normal $6.95.
The print-on-demand version will be available soon as well.
