Risque is a very American take on the Japanese RPG. Classic 1990's style game play with all of the subtlety of A Quentin Tarantino flick. 4 "heroes" who do more harm than good, are stuck in another galaxy and are trying to find their way home. Klint, the pilot and stubborn Ox of the team, fights what they think is wrong through the galaxy. Klint is joined by his kid sister Julie, a college student who ends up becoming the Medic, Vincent, a gambler and business man who deals in tricks and traps and Turk, the last in a long line of Vikings, who unfortunately didn't inherit the size and build. Jordan finishes out the human cast as a local MMA fighter.

What we're making is an old school game, circa 1990's era gaming, with the modern absurdity that the genre lacks. We're billing this as the adult party version of your childhood memories (like the very short lived Ren & Stimpy on Spike back in the day) The cast is strange, the settings will be unique and the story while starting out "fairly normal" goes sideways very quickly.
