Level 7 [Omega Protocol]: Extreme Prejudice Now Available

You know, we really should be trying to reduce the amount of hate and prejudice that is in the world today. Though, I guess when we’re talking about space aliens invading the Earth, looking to (as Bender would often put it) kill all the humans, maybe being against them is a good thing. Either way, Level 7 [Omega Protocol]: Extreme Prejudice is now available.

From the website:

I have A Thing for the end of the world. Apocalypse books and zombie movies are absolutely my cup of tea. As a philosopher once said, “Some people just like to watch the world burn.” I’m one of them, I guess. Ask me sometime about my scars.

One thing I don’t have A Thing for is so-called “Ameritrash” board games, with lots of bits and pieces and rulebooks that take several hours to read. I like my games with cubes, and lots of ‘em or rows of nice orderly meeples and clearly-labelled spaces. That’s my kind of game.

So to say I went into Level 7: Invasion confused is putting it lightly. A bits-and-pieces game where we’re fighting to save the world against an alien invasion? Okay, I thought, let’s watch this world burn.

The Esoteric Order examines the Omega Protocol

The Esoteric Order of Gamers has posted an unboxing video on their website. This one they’re looking at Level 7 Omega Protocol from Privateer Press.

From the article:

What lurks in the box? Why does the new game from Privateer Press have such a long and unwieldy name? At least one of these questions will be answered …

Here at the EOG much alien-killing fun is being had with Level 7 [Omega Protocol], with its new twist on the old dungeoncrawl formula. A review is in the works and a foam core box insert has already been designed, and a miniature-painting tutorial is being contemplated … but in the meantime, feast your peepers on all the goodies you get as I joyfully unbox the game!

Board to Death posts Video Review of Omega Protocol

Board to Death is showing off another game review. This time it’s Level 7: Omega Protocol from Privateer Press.

From the review:

LEVEL 7 [Omega Protocol] picks up right where LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE] left off. The Subterra Bravo facility has been thrown into chaos through the players actions in [ESCAPE], and now the government has sent in a top-secret, highly-trained special forces unit to shut down the facility and eliminate everything remaining in the base.

In [Omega Protocol], one player takes on the role of the Overseer while two to five other players take on the role of the elite Special Ops team. The Overseer’s role in the game is to control all of the alien denizens and challenges the players face throughout the game. The players are trying to achieve specific scenario-based objectives by exploring a map that’s laid out at the start and fighting off the hordes of aliens that the Overseer sends their way.

From the post:

After working up an appetite clambering through the ductwork of Subterra Bravo in Level 7 [Escape], it’s time to enact a little revenge on the little grey sods who’ve made your life heck. Grab your assault rifle and a few buddies – it’s time to chew butt and kick bubblegum.

Level 7 [Omega Protocol] is the next chapter in Privateer Press’ Level 7 series. Releasing this month, the new game sends the players back into Subterra Bravo with the members of Disco Team, a squad of five specialist commandos with a mandate to enact a little extreme prejudice.

After unboxing and getting some table time in, the Lost Hemisphere lads have some words to share and a bunch of pictures to show you…

But waiting within its unexplored depths are new dangers and even more deadly denizens, ready to put a grisly end to your bid to escape. Can you and your fellow survivors overcome your fears and the horrors that stand in your way, or will you fall prey to the frenzied monsters that hunt you?

You are a captive of Subterra Bravo, imprisoned in the facility’s deepest laboratory, the hall of nightmares known as LEVEL 7. Your singular goal is to escape, but to do that you will have to evade the human and inhuman denizens of this subterranean labyrinth before the entire base is locked down, sealing you in for the rest of your short, tormented life. Will you work together with your fellow prisoners to endure Subterra Bravo’s endless perils, or will you use them to secure your own escape? Ultimately, your chances of survival will depend on how well you manage your greatest weapon, which is also your greatest threat: fear itself.

Astute readers of Matt Wilson’s blog may have noticed a hidden message in his Privateer Insider post from 05/29/2012. That message leads the clever one link further on the chain to to an important piece of information. The first three people to post that exact piece of information to Privateer Press’ Facebook Page will receive a free copy of LEVEL 7 [ESCAPE]! Good luck, but remember, some doors in LEVEL 7 are best left unopened.

They Do Not Come in Peace: Is Privateer Press just a pawn of the government?

I know we don’t usually post 3rd-party stuff, but I just felt that this had to be said.
They Do Not Come In Peace is a website saying just that. Like I typed, I know it’s not normally policy to be sharing this sort of stuff, but well, they’re claiming that PP’s Level 7 world is just trying to say that aliens are real and blahblahblah. I mean, I worked for years as a moderator for PP and I feel it’s still somewhat my duty to show that they’re a good company with nice people.

Anyway, I saw it in Matt Wilson’s latest Privateer Insider and thought I’d boost the signal (and not via the microchip implanted in my head by the black helicopters… I only use that chip to broadcast They Might Be Giants music to the fillings of crazy people).
