In 2010, Indie Pete & EvilGaz brought you Walk... Or Die! Pundits hailed WoD! as the "best ballroom dancing RPG ever". It swept the boards at RPG award ceremonies all across Guatemala. "It really shone a light on our struggle" said conjoined twins Timothy and Bobby Stuvesant from Boise, Idaho.
Now, in 2011, the awesome of the awesome Indie Rich and the vision of the visionary Indie Pete bring you the game that "will define hippie role-playing for a new generation". This is the game that Wired Magazine is calling "better than the Internet" and "bigger than Bieber".

Here at UK Role Players we always like to bring you the latest and greatest news direct from the source. One game that currently has the Internet abuzz is Mechaton 1244, the game of giant fighty robot heretics. I travelled to Oxford to meet up with Rich and Pete, the designers of Mechaton 1244, to talk about the motivation behind their game.
Here's the transcript of that interview, exclusive to UK Role Players.
Indie Rich wrote:Montsegur 1244 is just so damned depressing, like with a capital D, you know?
Rich's co-designer Pete sighs and nods his head in agreement at this.
Indie Pete wrote:After a few games we noticed that our dudes were like always burning to death at the end, which was a pretty harsh realisation. Like, if a GM did that to you all the time, you'd be really upset. But this Danish dude who wrote the game, he thought of that, and made the game GM-less. Like, WTF?
Indie Rich wrote:Yeah man, totally. Like, why does Amiel have to burn to death? He's just little! But no, that Jensen guy puts it in the damn rules that one character at most can escape at the end. Cold.
Pete jumps in here as the guys really warm to their theme. Their enthusiasm is infectious, and I find myself doing an impromptu yoga session in the coffee shop where we're sitting just for kicks.
Indie Pete wrote:So anyway, then we thought, what if the Cathars like found a suit of mechaton fighty robot armour beneath the castle? It took a moment for this to sink in, because by this time we were pretty catatonic from all the burning and dying.
And then we were like all Wake Up and hi5ing ourselves. Screw you Jensen! Check this shizzle the funk out! Amiel is suiting up... and he's gonna fry some Catholics with Ruby Laser Beams! Armageddon Nukes! Wooooooo!
At this point Pete is doing his best Tom Cruise impression, jumping up and down on the blue seats that dot the coffee shop.
Indie Rich wrote:And so now we've played this mod like a couple of thousand times man. And it's great! We learned that there can be joy in role-playing again. Just say no to Danish misery tourism!
Our characters burned all right, burned the eyeballs out of Crusaders with giant fighty robot action laser schamoan! Sweet. As. With a capital S. And like, a capital A too. Suddenly the game isn't depressing anymore. Actually, it's funking awesome! C'mon!
It really is! I'd love to play this game, so if you see me at a convention, grab me and let's get our giant fighty robots on.
