Hitech Miniatures got their Kickstarter for Mission: Katharsis underway. The board game project is meant to be a launchpad into a larger skirmish game that Hitech wants to create.

From the campaign:

Mission: Katharsis is a tactical boardgame for 2 players. Meticulously crafted with dark future enthusiasts in mind, it takes place in year 3999, aboard an ARC-class spaceship. Gameplay is based on six-sided dice and is further enhanced by over 300 cards representing monsters, ship locations, as well as unexpected twists that may come about in the bowels of the vast spaceship. The inclusion of cards adds depth to the experience and makes it different with each play. At the same time, having part of the rules on cards instead of the manual makes it easier for new players to get the hang of the basics and spares them the hours of slogging through the rulebook before breaking the game out for the first time.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Finally, someone is making a sci-fi game that doesn’t include any of the tired old 40k aesthetic.

      Very funny tuco!

    I’m wondering if the Sacred Liquidators are related to the Mattress Liquidators at the strip mall.

  • Hitech Miniatures

    Yes, they are related with Mattress.

      Somehow, seeing you here, interacting with TGN’s favorite troll, just humanizes you.

      Stay awesome, Hitech.

        Soulfinger’s a troll?

        Well, I guess everyone here is then. Including you odinsgrandson.

        Since we’re getting so loose with definitions these days.

        re: the game…I don’t know if a ‘stolen’ dark future game has promise like this one, but I can’t help but think its appeal will be limited in the shadow of Games Workshop. Still, it really depends how they execute. These are not the things I would ever consider kickstarting, more like the perfect reason to take a wait and see attitude.

        If the miniatures are nice enough, no doubt they’ll pick up some buyers who have no intention using them for the boardgame. Seventh is right around the corner and promises to be expensive.

          Oh and Odin, if you were being sarcastic, I get it. Soulfinger is my favorite troll too!

          • odinsgrandson

            I really mean it as a term of endearment.

            Keep it up Soulfinger. We miss you whenever odd news posts go without comment.

    Am I seeing this wrong or are all the monsters/enemies just cards on stands? I see some stretch goals for enemies but they seem more hobby-related.
