What Makes Kollok Chilling?

The show followed Power Rangers Hyperforce’s run and even featured both Meghan Camarena (Strawburry17) and Andre Meadows (Black Nerd Comedy) in the weekly Livestream.
The show uses the Kids On Bikes RPG system created by Hunters Entertainment and has a similar vibe to Stranger Things. During the original run featured on HyperRPG’s Twitch channel, Kollok 1991 had 2 seasons and now begins the next adventure in a new year.
Today, leading digital media company Hyper RPG, in partnership with AMC Networks, officially announced the series premiere of KOLLOK, an interactive actual play horror series created exclusively for AMC’s FearHQ, with the first episode airing TONIGHT at 6PM Pacific.

Their only hope comes from the very people, hailed as heroes by some, villains by others, who caused the global crisis 30 years ago…
