Don’t Look Back: Terror is Never Far Behind is a tabletop role-playing game set in a modern world full of supernatural and paranormal horrors, secret government laboratories, alien abductions, and a master conspiracy trying to cover up the truth. If you’re a fan of Stranger Things, The X-Files, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Firestarter, Fringe and other horror stories and shows like I am, you’ll be very comfortable playing in the world of Don’t Look Back.
Chuck McGrew developed Don’t Look Back (DLB) in the early ’90s and published two editions of the rulebook and an alien abduction/government coverup supplement called Giant Psychic Insects From Outer Space plus a couple individual adventures through a company called Mind Ventures. They are currently out-of-print but you can still find them online. Chuck has a Kickstarter to help fund the creation of a whole new full-color, expanded edition that will be released in 2018.

The game itself was met with great reviews and a tremendous amount of support from professionals in the gaming industry. It covers a wide range of supernatural and paranormal topics with a strong undercurrent of conspiracies that tie it all together for campaign play. The rules are transparent and very easy to learn. The new edition is making an easy transition over to the D6xD6 system designed by Origins Award winner Lester Smith.
