    This game is honestly fantastic, it's a great example of evolving the Breathless system in a way that feels natural, while still being it's own unique thing. The text is a very fun read, with lots of flavor thrown in to keep things from getting dull, and I feel like I wanna track Diaz down and make him pay already. Seriously, fantastic  example of Breathless at its finest!

    Wow thanks for the comments! My goal was to hack This Is Breathless! while keeping the whole thing feeling organic, natural. I guess it's objective complete!

    Up next: A character journal and maybe some more optional rules!

    From the first couple of snippets of the game I saw, I knew that Crank It Up! would be incredible. Patrick went all in to inject has much tension as he could inside this game, making it a perfect RPG adaptation of the movie Crank. The writing is spectacular, and the theme perfectly on point with what Breathless can accomplish as a system. After reading this game, you instantly know what a rush it must be to play it, and I can't wait to actually give it a go with my group.

    It's tense enough to give you a stroke! Ha ha ha! Thanks René-Pier! That's very kind of you! Please send feedbacks when you try this with your group!

    Probablement l'une des thématiques les mieux adaptées au système Breathless! Peut-être encore plus stressant que des zombis! Ça a l'air très stimulant, sans faire de mauvais jeu de mots haha!

    Wow merci Kaiser Omnik! C'est en effet ce que je crois aussi! J'espère que tu auras bien du plaisir avec Crank It Up!

    Crank it up! is a blast to play, and perfectly encapsulates the high-octane ridiculous over the top world of Crank. This is great way to spend a few hours with friends, constantly trying to out do eachother.
