The Power of Gaming 2023 Edition

Teenagers from Outerspace by AnimechaniX/R Talsorian Games

So in 2020 and 2021 I talked about the power of gaming. Several participants on the forums would get involved with a Secret Satan (a play on words of Secret Santa) where we would all send gifts to each other. In 2020 I was thrilled to receive Mutant Crawl Classics and in 2021 I received two 5e books for Ravenloft and The Curse of Strahd campaign. In 2022, I messed up and didn’t get in the system in time. I reached out to the coordinator and was able to help out someone who needed a pick-me up, of which I was glad to help out with.

So when it came time for the 2023 Secret Satan, I made sure to sign up the moment it was posted. I know that the gifts I sent off were received (and loved according to the post my victim made). I even let one of the makers of one of the gifts know that it was well received. She blushed.

Today, my gift from Secret Satan arrived. It was a print-on-demand of the anime comedy roleplaying game, Teenagers from Outerspace. I also received an email that there was a PDF copy waiting for me at DrivethruRPG. My RPG playing daughter and I have already flipped through the rulebook. It reminds me a lot of some of the comedic anime series that I had seen in the past such as Louie the Rune Soldier, Ranma 1/2 or Project A-Ko. This game is published by AnimechaniX, which is a sub-division of R. Talsorian Games. This is the same company that released the Bubblegum Crisis RPG that I had used in past Character Creation Challenges.

I am planning to use this game in the 2024 Character Creation Challenge. I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to play it. But I wonder if I’ll be inspired to try to run a one-shot for SaltCON.

Have you played Teenagers from Outerspace? Is there a comedy anime that would be perfect for this RPG? This article is open for discussion on the TardisCaptain dot Com Discord server. You can also email me at Carl (at) or click on my social media links with any comments.
