Dead Earth Games are closing in on their next target for Across the Dead Earth at £8000. The State are the big dogs in the post-apocalyptic future and if you want to live in their world you have to pay.
These guys are pretty much the faction for me if they hit their target. I love the look of the artwork and I reckon it would be fun to be the baddest of the bad guys in the post-apocalyptic future. While they might make you pay heavily for their protection at least you know they are going to be reliable if the money keeps coming.
One of the other cool things is that they are based in the ruins of old London town. Finally we’re at the centre of some cool narrative! If they get past this stretch goal they also have another gang in the pipeline, the Sisters of Acquisition!
The game itself plays very nicely with a reactive overwatch style mechanic in play and a focus on getting closer to the target number when you’re shooting (a bit like Infinity) making it a frantic game where plans can change on the fly.
Of course the game is also an ongoing thing so your men and women are going to get more skilled as time goes by.
