Steam Differential is a group of like-minded individuals who believe that interactive gaming needs less structure, and more fun. Let’s create those rules, keep them simple, and focus on telling stories in a live-action environment. Not only live-action environments, but tabletop gaming can easily utilize this system for quick task and combat resolution. We are quite proud of our Stat Combat system, that will allow players to compete with each other on each of 4 different levels, actually producing quick results that can mimic near-realtime resolution.
While initially created for a steampunk genre setting, the system rules have been adapted to multiple genres since playtesting began with great success. If you are interested in working with us to create new genres for this system, we would love to hear from you.
Our own set of Live-Action Theater rules, suitably named Steam Differential after our organization, are currently not available for sale. However we will be looking to produce them and our Genre Card System for a Kickstarter eventually.
