Curious about what Saddle Shaped Games is up to? This is a master index of our projects and presence on the Internet.
Saddle Shaped’s main project is Just Got Real. The tagline says it all; it’s a rules-light RPG for action stories of all kinds. Focusing on quick pacing, character drama, and tight scene framing, Just Got Real keeps you on the edge of your seat like few other action games can!
Currently available is the Blitz Edition, a game tailored to genre-agnostic one shot and con games; play an action yarn in as much time as it’d take to watch one! If you aren’t sure which game to play, start there.
Soon to come is the Feature edition, which is a fully customizable ruleset for action genres of all types, with mechanics that support the tropes and stories of genres as disparate as fantasy, sci-fi, spy, police drama, and more.
The realm is at peace. But peace is fragile. A city-state needs protectors, those who would stand ready to protect the people when they least know they need it. Her Royal Highness the Queen, unable to have children of her own, looked far and wide across the realm for strong, capable, loyal young women who could lead the people in her stead; those women became the circle of Battle Princesses.
Battle Princess is a micro-RPG about a circle of princesses who protect a city-state from threats outside and inside its walls. It was released as part of Two Weeks, a microgame collection edited by Dan Enders, released in the wake of the election of 2016. It’s available for purchase for $10 from DriveThruRPG. All proceeds from its sale go to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Measure of a Badass is our ashcan rules-heavy action game. Imagine putting all of the nigh-invincible, unstoppable heroes of action cinema history on the same team, put them into the near future, and face them off against a COBRA-esque multinational terror organization. If you’re thinking of The Expendables, you’re not far off!
