I've been planning a King Kong based pulp game for a while now. When I say King Kong it involves an island, a film crew and a giant ape other than that it kind of veers off on its own course as it also involves Mudmen and Rocketeers (and a gangster for good measure).
The basic concept is this: A film crew led by the director, CC B DeVille has taken his crew and movie stars to a "mysterious island" to make a film. He is financed by The Mob (the Scallopini family of Chicago) who have sent along one of their fingermen to protect their investment. The crew of the ship Madagascar Queen have decided to try and capture the beast and Rocket Morton and his Rocket Rangers are the cavalry who will come in and try to save the day. Mudmen, dinosaurs and giant spiders will be there to get in the way and make life just that little bit more interesting / difficult.
The rules are very basic and based on a Goal System (except for combat which uses the #+ to hit and wound mechanic) and each character has their own character card and special abilities.
