What’s better for destroying the Supernatural menace than a Superscience weapon? How about a Superscience weapon paired WITH a Supercience gadget!

Gadgets are the icing on the cake. The peaches in your cream. The bosons for your anti-bosons. In this case the cake and cream are actually Science weapons and anti-bosons are… well, they’re still anti-bosons.

While gadgets are not considered “offensive” during tactical sorties, they do tend to complement and improve your destructive capabilities. Take the Gravity Distorter for example. It’s your typical pocket-sized, grenade-deployable black hole. “Sure, that’s fine for crowd control,” I hear you think, “but what if you use it for gathering crowds into a tightly-confined singularity–and also for gathering PROJECTILES into a tightly-confined singularity?”

That’s right, you can use the gravitational pull to focus fire on a particular area, make snap shots more likely to connect and increase the accuracy of more wayward projectiles. Get creative! An expert can even use the Gravity Distorter for sling-shooting projectiles around corners with enough skill. Do be judicious with your Gravity Distorter though–it has a single round cool-down and its event horizon is equally welcoming of Scientists and Supernaturals.

RESEARCH and DESTROY is set in a post-human era, where we’re way past the point of Supernatural creatures merely roaming the land, thirsty for blood and carnage; they’ve settled in, built communities, and only bother roaming if the neighbours start getting on their nerves. As for the blood and carnage: the Vampires and Werewolves are still kind of into it, but there isn’t much left to practice on, what with human beings being extinct and all. Sure there’s plenty of wildlife, but come on! They may be horrible Supernatural creatures, but they’re not MONSTERS.

Supernatural society is organized very loosely, with more intelligent and potent Supernaturals lording over the small-frys. Vampires, Poltergeists, Trolls; these formidable creatures sit on top not merely because of their power, but also due to their complexity and scarcity. Anyone can imagine up some more Zombies or Ghosts to replace the fallen, but the sheer creative capacity needed to summon up the higher echelons of the Supernatural hordes has largely passed from the world along with the last humans. Not even the mighty Relics and Cubes (?! Play the game to find out!) can replace the likes of a Vampire that has fallen in battle or slipped […]

In RESEARCH and DESTROY you’ll have access to the complete breadth of humankind’s surviving super science know-how and the means to mold that knowledge into Supernatural-destroying apparatuses–or, to put it into layman’s terms, “totally brutal weapons.”

There are quite a few science machines you’ll be able to develop–providing you do the requisite research, of course! In addition to the base model for each weapon there’s a variety of modifications that alter or augment the utility of the device. Every weapon in RESEARCH and DESTROY has two modes, and these modes are often complementary and/or utilitarian. Let’s take a look at some of the available hardware.

The Laserizer is the apparatus of choice for the Scientist who likes their device more straightforward;  point-and-shoot, and modeled after the pew-pews from the Before Times. It excites photons, somehow breaks the laws of physics, and gives these photons mass. Et voila! A light bullet for the face of every Zombie, Werewolf and Troll cursing our once-beautiful planet.

The primary mode for the Laserizer, called Max Frequency, is a simple affair. Pull the trigger and spray light bullets everywhere. Go wild, all weapons in […]

Super Scientists Introductions

In RESEARCH and DESTROY you play as a trio of Super Scientists named Larry, Gary and Marie. You’re free to rename them, but for now let’s go with these.

Larry, Gary and Marie were born in an underground bunker–the same one humanity fled to generations ago during the Supernatural apocalypse. Having learnt everything they could from their old science books, the trio emerge from their bunker and discover the RADvan–an experimental, possibly-sentient, slightly-deranged talking van who’ll be instrumental in the fight against the Supernaturals. Now, they’re hungry for knowledge with a craving for some intense field work.

The Supernaturals had better look out!

Our Super Scientists are regular homo sapiens in terms of their physicality. Larry and Marie both are roughly the same height, quick on their feet, wear stylish lab coats and glasses and are equally useful either out on the battlefield or in the lab.

Gary is the short hazmat scientist with some obvious differences Their stumpy legs means they run quite a bit slower, but they have more health to compensate. The hazmat suit provides several unique benefits, such as resistance to fire and the ability to walk through puddles of bubbling zombie blood without taking damage.  It doesn’t provide protection […]
