The world of tabletop roleplaying games has seen a dramatic rise in popularity over the last few years, and one of the titans of the genre is Penny Arcade’s ‘Acquisitions Incorporated‘. Founded in 2008, this series has been a trailblazer for other popular D&D live streams, and its fans have grown to include packed shows at Penny Arcade Expos (PAX) and its tabletop board games.
Acquisitions Incorporated is preparing for the launch of Series 2 this September in celebration of its 15th anniversary. With a star-studded cast including Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins from Penny Arcade, Jasmine Bhullar from Critical Role and Dimension20, and Anna Prosser from Dice Camera Action, the series is set to bring even more excitement to the roleplaying community.
In preparation for this highly anticipated revival, Acquisitions Incorporated smashed its Series 2 Kickstarter goal by 170%, earning an impressive $424,478 total. This successful funding will give the show access to more extensive and more elaborate production values than before, showcased by dungeon masters Jeremy Crawford, Lead Rules Designer of Dungeons and Dragons, and Chris Perkins, Senior Story Designer of Dungeons and Dragons.
“We’re basically a classic punk band getting the crew back together to show these kids how a real party’s supposed to go down, with more excessively nerdy fantasy stage designs, of course,” commented co-founder Jerry Holkins. “Our entire cast is incredibly thankful to all of our backers and we can’t wait to make some magic for the world this summer.”
Fans are as eager for the show’s return as its creators are. Acquisitions Incorporated: Series 2 looks to be an exciting journey into one of D&D’s most beloved franchises, and we can’t wait to see what magic it brings.
