I think I’m on a roll right now as far as FATE is concerned. With Mindjammer and Tianxia done, I’m setting my sights on nothing less than the latest FATE Core game centered on Science and Punching: ATOMIC ROBO the Roleplaying Game!



Action! Science! Robots! Punching! More Science!

Are you ready for some two-fisted science adventure? Then it’s time for the Atomic Robo RPG! Have you ever wanted to face down global conspiracy as an immortal atomic robot or Carl Sagan? The Atomic Robo RPG makes it possible.

The Atomic Robo RPG brings you the most explosive Fate Core System experience yet. This is action science like you’ve never seen it before, coming straight at you from the pages of the popular Atomic Robo comics by Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener. Play as an Action Scientist or immortal robot, super-spy or pulp adventurer—or something stranger still from the hidden corners of super-science!

This is multi-era, pick-up-and-play gaming at its best: get playing in ten minutes, or take your time and make the most of behind-the-scenes rules for added depth. Hop into your Tesladyne jet and travel the globe in one time period, or battle across the decades as a cast of scientifically talented adventurers. Face down demented dinosaurs, rogue government agents, and stolen Tesla-powered technologies!

Are you Action Scientist material? Grab your gear and get ready for full-contact, high-octane, explosive hypothesis testing!

Remain Calm. Trust in Science.
The Atomic Robo RPG is here!

I’ve long been a fan of quirky pulp action-adventure comedy stuff like this. From The Amazing Screw-On Head to Tales from the Bully Pulpit, the combination of absurdist humor and action adventure never fails to strike a chord in me. Imagine my shame then that I’d not heard of Atomic Robo until it was announced that they were getting an RPG.

I’ve had a chance to check out a little bit of Atomic Robo when they had an issue out in Free Comic Book Day a while back, and I was very happy with the kind of fun adventure and humor that was found in the series. With that in mind, it didn’t take much to convince me to grab a copy of the game and do a Let’s Study series of it. I’ve already been on a FATE Core binge for the past 3 weeks, what’s another week or so more?

So join me next week as we take a look inside the covers of Atomic Robo and see what this game has to offer.

If you’d like to follow along, the PDF for Atomic Robo can be found in DriveThruRPG for $11.99


  1. The comic is a lot of fun. One ofthe few I’m still collecting. My group was doing some early playtesting on the game, and the finished product is pretty darned good…a d this is from a Fate-hater.
