Somewhat late to the party I started watching Rick & Morty last year after one of the Boot Camps. Well, I was hooked and the show truly is fantastic watching. It was only a matter of time before it became a game series and that’s where Cryptozoic are taking it with Anatomy Park…
Here’s the run down of what this game is all about…
“The strategy game puts two-four players into Anatomy Park, deep inside of Ruben’s body. After choosing from six characters, players must design the best park possible by placing tiles while simultaneously avoiding and fighting Diseases, such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis A.
Certain actions (e.g., moving Ride Tiles around) shift around Ruben’s internal organs during gameplay and cause players to draw Bodily Reaction Cards, which result in unexpected effects and force players to act out embarrassing bodily functions. There are multiple game-ending conditions in which Ruben can live or die, affecting players and their final scores in various ways.”
This sounds like it could be a lot of fun and it is drawing on one of the best episodes from the first series. The added ‘acting out’ for the game should certainly make for some fun moments around the tabletop. If you want to find out more about how the game plays then you can check out their first look at the mechanics HERE.
Additionally, a second game is also planned – Rick & Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game. Deck Builders are something Cryptozoic has been doing for a while so it will be fun to see what that entails. Basically, if you’re a fan of Rick & Morty then you’re going to have plenty to get stuck into over the next year.
Anatomy Park is due for release July 12th, 2017 and Close Rick-Counters Of The Rick Kind will be coming out in the later half of the year.
Will you be diving into this?
