Wet Hot American Summer Is Becoming a Role-Playing Game
You may not be able to afford adult summer camp, but you can pretend to be hanging out at Camp Firewood with all your friends. Wet Hot American Summer is set to become a role-playing game.
Wet Hot American Summer: Fantasy Camp is being crowdfunded on Kickstarter by humor publisher The Devastator. At press time, the project was less than $2000 away from its $12,500 goal (with nearly a month to go). The game is officially sanctioned by the original movie’s co-writer and director David Wain, and according to the Kickstarter, the game's rulebook will include never-before-seen material and playing tips from members of the cast and crew, including Joe Lo Truglio, Marguerite Moreau, Michael Ian Black, and Wain himself. You can get the print version of the manual for $20 or a digital copy for $10.
Because it’s a role-playing game, all you need is the manual and some friends. You can either design your own summer camps and create your own characters, or you can play as your favorite characters from the film and Netflix series, pursuing three different story lines: “Save the Camp,” “Superstardom,” and “Bonfire Boinking.” In each version, your character will attend classic camp activities like the talent show, complete counselor chores like flushing out contraband from campers' bunks, and hoard special items to make your last day of camp the best ever (read: beer).
