RPG a Day 2017 - Day 1

What published RPG do you wish you were playing right now?

I'm currently running a D&D 5e campaign in Primeval Thule, and am participating in a Night's Black Agents Dracula Dossier campaign. I'll also be running a whole bunch of Predation at GenCon in just a few weeks. Basically, I'm feeling pretty good about the games that I'm playing or am about to play. I tend to look forward to new games that are going to be coming out rather than games that have already been published.

However, that's now what this question is about. Since I have to choose a published game that I'd like to be playing right now I'm going to have to go with Tales from the Loop. I don't know a whole lot about it. It sounds like the system is similar to Apocalypse World and is more focused on making the narrative come to life through the mechanics. The setting also looks really cool and a lot of the descriptions evoke Goonies mixed with Stranger Things. I'm also very interested in playing a game that eschews violence in favor of resolving situations in different ways.

Ideally, I'll be playing this at GenCon when Andrew from My 20 Sided Life runs a session.
