Critter Mech Squad: An Animal Rescue TTRPG

Critter Mech Squad is an animal rescue TTRPG that I made as part of the Caltrop Core 2 game jam! Save animals in need of help as you pilot your mechs through exciting environments and learn animal facts!

Critter Mech Squad is an animal rescue TTRPG that focuses on teamwork, animal research, and having non-violent fun with massive mechs!

In this game, you are part of the Critter Mech Squad, a group of animal heroes who, aided by their awesome mech suits, go around helping and rescuing other animals!  Dive into the deepest oceans, soar above stormy clouds, trek through dense jungles, and tackle other surprises as you learn about different habitats and the animals that live there.  Your goal is to work together and get creative so you can find and help all the animals who need you!

Choose a mech with special abilities to help your group tackle any environment!  Team up to earn bonus dice and handle everything from land to sea to sky and more!  Have fun and learn about different habitats and animals while you play!

Critter Mech Squad does require some reading and understanding of cause and effect, however the content is appropriate for all ages and there’s no combat.  This game is for 2-4 players plus an optional game guide.

Critter Mech Squad runs on Caltrop Core, a rules-lite and easy to use mechanic developed by TitanomachyRPG, and this game was submitted as part of the Caltrop Jam 2: You Can (Not) Fail! You can also find Critter Mech Squad here on my page!

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    1. I hear you – it is just me running the site out of pocket at the moment, so getting artwork on top of writing a couple articles per week is tough. If ever a creator offers up use for their artwork, I 100% use it to try and spice up articles. I do appreciate the feedback though!
