From the publishers website:
Animal Games is the company we formed to create high quality roleplaying games that we think are really cool-- whether or not the games have an appeal to the "mass market" of consumers. We've been involved in gaming all our lives and have always customized and altered each of the many games we've played. Every game we play seems to have some problems we have to fix by making our own custom rules. (Of course this isn't true for Paranoia- the Greatest Game of All Time.)
Recently we've decided that instead of buying other people's games and fixing them, we should just make our own. But as gamers we know that most games are flawed because they are developed and created by a handful of people with little or no input from the gaming community. That's where you come in. We are opening up our ideas (for the most part) for all to see. We are putting the ideas up on our message forums and we encourage you to read, evaluate, and offer your own criticism or ideas on what we've proposed. If your suggestions have merit, we'll incorporate them into the game.
