Once upon a time, in a world before blockbuster movies and animated series, there existed a gritty black and white indie comic book that would go on to change the pop culture landscape – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Unlike the lighthearted adaptations that followed, the original comic depicted a violent and intense world where four brothers embarked on perilous adventures within the bustling streets of New York City and beyond. They clashed with notorious foes like the Shredder and Baxter Stockman, leaving an indelible mark on fans’ hearts.
This captivating narrative kindled the desire in fans to embark on their own adventures, and to create their own characters within the TMNT universe. Enter Palladium Books, a company that heard this call and responded by crafting an immersive role-playing game.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness, designed within the framework of the Palladium system, offered fans the unique opportunity to blend this RPG experience with other games in the series. The game featured an intricate character creation system, an extensive array of animals to choose from, and the ability to play as mutated creatures resembling humans or staying true to their animal forms.
However, as the popularity of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soared, Nickelodeon secured the licensing rights to the beloved green heroes. This led to a hiatus for the Palladium Books role-playing game, with the introduction of another game titled After the Bomb, which dealt with mutant animals in a post-apocalyptic setting.
But for devoted fans, it just wasn’t the same.
Online communities were consistently abuzz with speculation about the return of the Palladium Books’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Many considered it an impossible dream, resigned to the idea that it could never happen.
However, in a stunning turn of events, Palladium Books has made the impossible a reality. They’re all set to launch a Kickstarter campaign on October 31st to revive the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles role-playing game!
