Has anyone played / run Gary and the Monsters ?

As the title of this post suggests I was wondering if anyone has played , or run Gary and the Monsters . It seemed a very interesting game to me and thought I would see if anyone here feels the same !?

Have it -- I played a short campaign based on the movie Demons. Demons are basically fast zombies. Players start out at a coffee shop across from the theater where the possessions start. Much fun was had...

Planning a Halloween adventure set in Antartica. My players know I am a huge JC's THE THING fan, so I am going to throw then a curveball. The adventure is loosely based on the Wendingo myth presented in THE LAST WINTER combined with a typical slasher story based at the camp. Should be fun.

Greatest thing about GARY VS THE MONSTERS is how it shows you, with just a little tweaking, the base 0e engine can be changed for another genre -- the original three little books mention that eventually the game can be expanded to other genres. This is how to do it...
