Space Goat Games, as part of Space Goat Productions, are coming to Kickstarter soon to fund their tile based survival horror game based on the amazing Evil Dead II movie. Will you be joining Ash in this adventure?
These folks have been busy working on the Evil Dead Comics for a while now and so they’re now taking their experience to the tabletop for this game which will launch on the fund raising platform.
“The campaign offers a standard and deluxe edition for donors to select from. Featuring at least eight custom figures and art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the film, the official Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience for Evil Dead 2 fans.
2-6 players will work together in 60 – 90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves”
Well all of that sounds rather awesome. I like that they’re taking the survival horror genre and then twisting it with the comedy of Evil Dead. Twin that with the idea that the players are working together but they can turn against their friends and you have an interesting concept for a game.
“The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a boxbased on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, a well as retailer pledge levels. Six lucky fans will also get a chance to get their likeness drawn into either the game or a future Evil Dead 2 comic book.”
I think this should be a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing where the campaign goes as it hits Kickstarter in the near future. Evil Dead is a property that’s near and dear to many of our hearts so I think if we get a good game out of this we’ll have a lot of fun whale of a time with it on the tabletop.
