Other Games Kickstarter for Grimmerspace (Starfinder combatible)

#1
There has been so much hype about Sean Astin's RPG (the dude who played Sam Gamgee in Lord of the Rings).

Basically, it is called Grimmerspace and it is fully compatible with Paizo's Starfinder (so the exact ruleset mechanically but mixing-matching themes), with a grim twist:

Gritty terrascapes, alien atrocities, and tough moral choices. In GRIMMERSPACE the stakes are always high and the price of heroism is steep.
Does this sound suspiciously like Warhammer 40,000 to you?

Anyway, I backed this since it follows my mantra of reusing the same game engine for multiple games. Plus, obviously, Modiphius Entertainment is the distributor, once again, and has become my top publisher of cool RPGs these days (Conan, Star Trek, John Carter of Mars, and of course, Dune, plus rumors of Fallout). Also, Modiphius having Borg-like assimilated Fria LIgan, means Modiphius also distributes Coriolis, Tales from the Loop, Things from the Flood and the Alien RPG too.

@negromaestro I did see this but my thought was similar "Sounds like Warhammer 40k or Alien", but why do I want to run that with D&D? Plus the other two are en route.
I think the 40th Anniversary of Alien is getting that space horror vibe trending again, so yes, Grimmerspace is just space horror for that old school Dnd3.5/Pathfinder crowd that are unable or unwilling to try new systems like the Fria Ligan slew of YZE games.

For myself, since I already invested heavily in Starfinder, I can easily adopt Grimmerspace for my campaigns, plus, since I enjoy the Fria Ligan YZE system, I am also pre-ordering Alien. However, this means I will "KonMari" a few other games out of my house. Ha ha ha!"

Sample critter: The Flod are enigmatic, chitinous beings who bolt monitor screens onto their backs displaying odd emoticons to more accurately express their feelings and intent.
