Massive Darkness

One of the perks of being here in the CMON offices is that I sometimes get a chance to get a closer look at some of the projects they’re working on. People got a first look at Massive Darkness during the CMON Expo last weekend. I was able to snap a few photos during the convention, but I had to grab them quick and in-between other people wanting to get a peek. Well, this morning I grabbed the prototype box and went to town.

And there you have it. Front and back shots of all the minis that were in the box (I didn’t have any names to go on for what each thing was, so I figured, rather than mislabel anything, I’d just stick with the “img_” names). Note: These are, of course, not the production-plastic versions of the figures. This was from the prototype that they had at the Expo. So things might change between now and release. But really, with how the figures usually end up looking for the minis in CMON/Guillotine Games products, what we see here is probably what we’ll be getting in the final version.

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

    I dunno. I would have preferred to see something original over yet another Conan, and Gandalf.
    The fantasy tropes used here make me wonder if this is going to be another pop-culture-reference-fest instead of something new and unique?

    Overall a ‘meh’ from me.

      Arguably if they’re going for a “future classic dungeon crawl” then the bog-standard fantasy tropes are the quickest way to those consumers. If they went too far off the reservation then they risk losing paying customers. Although I wouldn’t mind if CMON started taking a few risks now & again instead of constantly pushing the same tired catalog.

        I find that with the current glut of dungeon crawlers, anything that can make it stand out as unique from the rest will increase sales.

        Granted, this is pretty much another Zombicide, so the success is guaranteed. Which is why I find it strange that they went with such tired fantasy stereotypes.

        They could have used anything at all and it would have still made money, hand-over-fist simply due to the CMoN/Guillotine logo.
