Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition launches with predictably awesome trailer

The new meta-tabletop RPGKnights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition is now available from Paradox Interactive. And with it comes, like clockwork, an amazing and hilarious launch trailer. Check it out and enjoy the retro pixel-art sendup of tabletop gaming.

Look, Paradox. We get it. You produce amazing trailers. We saw your great slow-jazz Leviathon: Warships trailer. Heck, even your death-metal Crusader Kings 2: The Old Gods trailer was pretty funny. It’s not that I don’t appreciate your trailers, it just feels like showing off at this point. Next game, make a boring trailer and give the other kids a chance.

Anyway, Knights of Pen & Paper is a turn-based RPG where you take control of a player playing a game of not-Dungeons & not-Dragons (*wink*). Play as the Stoner, the Pizza Guy, the Jock, or even reluctantly recruited Grandma, who will do anything to spend time with you. Because she loves you, that’s why.

Check out more information on the game at its website. We got our hands on a version earlier this year, so you can see our full impressions of the game there.
