Most of my gaming friends have kids (or in the case of one, they’ve got like 30 or 40 or something… I dunno. Seems like he’s always talking about adding a new one). As such, they’re always on the lookout for ways to introduce their young ones to the world of gaming. Well, Monster Hunter Academy is just such a game. But it’s more than a game, it’s a monthly service that’ll continually add to the game.
In the game, players take on the role of mighty heroes looking to head down into a classic-style dungeon. There’s three ways to play. Treasure Hunt puts everyone trying to be the first one to grab the single piece of treasure that’s in the dungeon. Monster Hunt has you trying to be the one to defeat and capture the most monsters on the board. Dungeon Escape sees you at the far end of the dungeon, looking to be the first one to get out alive.
And as I mentioned, there’s monthly additions sent right to you. New monsters and other game options will help make it so the game is never quite the same twice. Plus, kids love getting packages just for them in the mail (we adults just end up with things like bills and grocery store ads).
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now and is set to go for another 27 days.
