A revolutionary survival horror RPG from the creator of Dark Refuge and The Time Shredders, published by our friends at Wisdom Vault products.

Players take on the role of Search and Rescue operatives heading into a modern city that has been flooded by rising waters.

Their goal: recover a proprietary prototype, rescue a VIP, and get back out of the flooded city safely. Arrayed against them is a conspiracy of corporate goons (and their dangerous experiments), opportunistic mercenaries, and neo-nazis.

With an exciting player-driven cover system, unlockable metaphysical abilities, and a team dynamic designed to empower the players to roleplay their characters to the max, you should be playing Seas of Kansas.

And the only place you can get in on Seas of Kansas is at NJ Gamer Con and the only day to play Seas of Kansas live will be Saturday July 7th, so make sure to come down and play!
