Continuing with our look at new products that CMON was showing off at a media event here at Gen Con, we get a look at a game that looks pretty kick ass. It’s Kick-Ass! Once more, I was able to wrangle Eric M. Lang away and get the lowdown on this new game.
Kick-Ass is a cooperative game for 2-5 players (games taking about 60min). In it, players will take on the role of a superhero, trying to keep the city safe from all the villains out in the world. The villains are controlled by unique decks that will give the players different challenges. But it’s not just thugs and bank robberies and kidnappings that the heroes will have to worry about. The comic, which the game is based on, very much deals with the hero’s life away from they’re being heroes. So will the game. Players have a delicate balance they’re trying to maintain as they play.
Eric described the game as having a bit of a “Euro-like” feel to it. Also, he was very excited about just how much the game “feels like” the Kick-Ass comic. Through the various interactions with the villain deck and the heroes actions, they will more-than-likely find themselves in much the same situations and having to face the same tough decisions that the characters in the comic do. If you’re a fan of the series, you will be a fan of the game.
Stay tuned for more details as the game moves closer to release.
