Back in the mists of time before the Event Mantic Games teased that they had acquired the Umbrella Academy license and were planning a game based around the world-famous graphic novels by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.

Mantic Games // The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy tasks you with one simple thing… stopping the apocalypse. Each turn you must work together to defeat hazards that threaten to destroy different locations across the city. If too many locations are devastated then it’s game over – so you’ll need to use your abilities wisely.

Number 2 The Kraken // Diego Hargreeves

Written by Alessio Cavatore the gameplay is solo/co-operative for 1-5 players that combines card and miniature gaming offering a challenge if you want to defeat the nefarious supervillains trying to thwart your plans. The renders of the miniatures that we have seen so far look fantastic characters like Space Boy, Kraken, the Boy and if you fancy checking it out when it launches on Kickstarter you can sign up now.

Having seen what Mantic did with Hellboy I'm on board to see how they manage to replicate the feel of the Umbrella Academy on the tabletop in a very different style of game with River Horse making the engine this time around.
