Thanks for updating the license. I had a blast designing a TMNT-inspired hack.

One of my favorite games with a million variants of it. Surprised no one has hosted a jam of it.
If I understand license for L&F (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) correctly, it would be illegal to release commercially game, that is based upon Lasers & Feelings, right?
I updated the license to allow for commercial games. See this devlog post here:
Lasers & Feelings is the best way I've found to encourage reticent but curious players to be enticed into the world of RPGs! Excited about the possibilities of the CC update and hope it can expose more people as the gateway to Tabletop. Thanks John Harper, much respect.
My tabletop design class used your game as an example of great experimental rpgs! It was really fun DMing, and I used your game as a heavy inspiration for mine. Thank you so much for designing something so great!
I've played this a while ago (our GM did no prep whatsoever) and really enjoyed the simplicity of the rules and the fun little details strewn throughout the document. The graphic design is also awesome. Thanks so much for making this (and for inspiring a bazillion hacks)!
I run a program for teens playing tabletop games, and this has been the one I've spent (ironically) the most time prepping for, and the teens have had a fantastic time so far.
