  1. I was a wave 2 backer and I totally missed out on the fire sale as I was traveling avoiding email at the time. As a kid I loved the original robotech RPG although I never did try the more recent one. Also I love board games! In any case I am very interested in this and hoping that there is some sort of news and information sign up page coming soon.

  2. I am so excited to see someone else take up this series. I’m signing up for the updates however I’d like to know how they will k ow about the wave two backers? I was one, and was saddened when they announced that it would never come to be.

  3. I backed the Palladium KS for Robotech tactics and got wave 1 but not 2, defintely interesed in your company’s Robotech IP products.

  4. I GM’d many hours of the old Palladium Robotech rpg. I’m definitely looking forward to Strange Machine’s new take on a classic. If you need testers for the new game, I would love to be considered.
