[Kickstarter] Dog eats Dog

Last week we talked about a project tied to an old school RPG: Shadowrun. (HERE)
Today I want to point to you a new game about the colonisation process and hios effects on cultures being colonized.
This game is Dog eats dog-
This is how the autor of the game present it:

Dog Eat Dog is a game of colonialism and its consequences. As a group, you work together to describe one of the hundreds of small islands in the Pacific Ocean, defining the customs of the natives and the mores of the outsiders arriving to claim it. One player then assumes the role of the Occupation force, playing their capable military, their quisling government, and whatever jaded tourists and shrewd businessmen are interested in a not quite pacified territory. All the others play individual Natives, each trying in their own ways to come to terms with the new regime. The game begins when the war ends. Through a series of scenes, you play out the inevitably conflicted relationship between the two parties, deciding what the colonizers do to maintain control, which natives assimilate and which run amok, and who ends up owning the island in the end. The game will come in the form of a book, with the full rules, author's notes that explain the design process, and a brief historical overview of colonization in the Pacific.

One of the most interesting facts about this funding is that the autor is willing to send via email a text copy of the game if you can commit to running the game and writing a little about your experience, on a forum or blog or wherever. How great is that?
He is worthy of your money just for that attitude!
