An asteroid is headed to Earth. It’s too late to do anything about it. The impact will be at midnight. You’ve made it to a bunker that will (hopefully) save you and allow humanity to go on. But there’s a problem… there’s a fanatical cult of people out there. They’re sending their agents into survival bunkers in order to carry out their nefarious plot. But who is a cultist and who is just a regular person? Who will you let stay inside and who will you doom to a fiery death outside? That’s what you need to figure out in The End is Nigh, a new game up on Kickstarter.
In the game, players take on the role of a refugee, looking to find asylum within a doomsday bunker. However, people aren’t very trusting, especially when there’s potentially fanatical cultists among the populace. Your goal is to either find all the cultists and expel them from the bunker or make sure a cultist stays inside the bunker at the end (obviously dependent on if you’re secretly a cultist or not). There could be one, two, or even no cultists in the group, but that’s what everyone has to figure out. The votes will be cast and not everyone will be in the bunker when the asteroid hits.
The Kickstarter campaign just got underway and it’s set to go for another 30 days.
