All that stands between them and the helpless masses of the Victorian Age are the Rippers: a secret society of scholars, warriors, sages, and heroes who battle legendary creatures around the globe.
To Triumph over the likes of werewolves, vampires, mummies, and worse, the Rippers must discover dark magics, collect powerful artifacts, and learn forbidden lore. Some even take the risk of implanting Rippertech: harvesting parts of the creatures they fight and grafting them onto their own bodies to harness the monstrous supernatural powers of their foes.
Rippers: Rise of the Great One is a turn-based game for PC, Mac, and mobile devices, based on one of the most popular Savage Worlds roleplaying settings, Rippers. Players take the role of Victorian monster hunters, members of the shadowy secret society: the Rippers.
In Rippers: Rise of the Great One players join the Rippers in a mysterious trek across the globe to far-flung locales, seeking clues to an ancient secret, and battling a host of powerful supernatural enemies.
Rippers: Rise of the Great One is an exciting tactical battle game using the Savage Worlds system. Combining an evil plot that threatens mankind and an ancient malevolent foe, the game presents players with unpredictable plot twists and cunning surprises right up to the last act of the game.
The game has been adapted from the Savage Worlds pen and paper system.
Players create and manage a group of Rippers in a struggle against evil and powerful monsters. The main focus is on the game turn-based tactical battles, but players must also protect and develop their Rippers' Lodge. This includes the construction of new facilities such as a library or laboratory, recruiting new Rippers, collecting revenue, and undertake combat missions to destroy the agents of the Cabal.
Just as with the pen and paper roleplaying game, Rippers: Rise of the Great One provides the player with a huge range of options for creating and customizing a heroic character. Players choose from a range of archetypes, which they can then customize with Edges and Hindrances, skills and attributes, to ensure that no two characters are quite alike.
Rippertech provides a further opportunity for developing a unique character. These implants and extracts are obtained by pseudo-science from a variety of supernatural creatures found in the game.
In addition to their main character, the player can recruit colleagues to their team of Rippers, equip them with arcane knowledge and gear, and add Rippertech implants to prepare them to fight the hideous beasts they must confront. With skill and planning, the player can select the most suitable band of Rippers and send them to complete specific tasks.
Arrayed against the Rippers are the forces of darkness. The many monsters opposing the hero and his companions ensure fights are exciting and varied, providing a wide choice of possible tactics. Each opponent has certain strengths and weaknesses, employs extensive use of their surroundings and unique abilities, and forces players to adapt to the conditions, making each battle unique.

We do believe that together we can create something unique, something that we couldn't make without your help. Every penny we will use to improve the art, style and animation of the game. Balancing game mechanics and developing the range of options the game deserves needs time and, with your help as supporters, together WE will create the game we all want to play.
Most of the money raised will go to towards animation. We want to create fully animated cut-scenes for the game, using classical 2D animation and this requires a lot of work. With all crazy stuff in our imaginations, this will add great immersion to the game and will require the talent of a special animator :)
