Just went through the Alpha documents and I am really loving this... Anyone else have impressions?

I think it is only available to kickstarter backers at the moment.

I got an email with the download links an the end of November last year.

I'll have to go and read it properly. A quick skim when I first received the link is that it is an alternative history that never happened - which is my least favourite type of sci fi. The Russian invasion of the UK also had me in stitches.

I intend to use my own backstory based on current events. It will still be Twilight 2000, but the 2000 will have a different meaning...

I'll read it again and give you a synopsis.

Many thanks! Alt-history is one of my guilty pleasures. I liked T2000 1E's take on the war, but the 2nd edition and Twilight:2013 did disappoint in this respect in terms of geopolitical realism.

Pretty much the same as 2nd ed, but a number of small changes. Alternate history instead of future history. Divergence in 1992.

And yes, I am a backer.
