Space Goat Play (a division of Space Goat Productions) has announced the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for their official Evil Dead 2 board game created in conjunction with Studiocanal. Space Goat is not new to Evil Dead, they also releases the Evil Dead comic series.
Space Goat President Shon Bury states, “We’ve built a reputation with the Evil Dead books of really being able to please core Evil Dead fans. We’re going to do the same thing with the official board game.
Evil Dead is such a great world to work in. Making a brutal survival horror game filled with jokes and exciting gameplay just came naturally. Designer Taylor Smith said. “It’s a cooperative game with a twist: Players can turn evil and go after their former allies, who then have to decide to save their Deadite friends or put them down for good and carry on with the mission.
The game its self is a “…tile and miniature-based survival-horror game.” Doesn’t that sound “groovy”?
From the Official Press Release:
The Campaign offers a standard and deluxe edition for donors to select from. Featuring at least 8 customs 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.
The deluxe edition features exclusive figures of Ash Williams, Deadite Henrietta, and a box based on the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, the Book of the Dead. More figures and features will be added as the campaign goes on, as 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 comic book.
Two weeks from now, the Kickstarter campaign will launch. You can sign up now for the newsletter now, right here. Be sure to stop by the official Space Goat website. Follow Space Goat on Twitter and Facebook for exclusives and updates on the game and their comics.
