A disease is spreading around. It's causing people to become violent maniacs (more than usual, that is). At the moment, it seems to be limited to the city of San Lazaro, which has since been blocked off and quarantined. However, the still-healthy citizens aren't happy with being shut in and are trying to escape. That's what's going on in Omicron Protocol, a new miniaturs game up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Omicron Protocol is an “intra-apocalyptic”, squad-based arena combat miniatures game that is fun for all tabletop gamers.
In the year 2050, the once utopian city of San Lazaro was crippled by a mysterious virus. Quarantined and cut off from the rest of the world, the survivors band together in order to escape the city before they too succumb to the infection. The only thing standing between them and salvation are the rival factions looking to accomplish their own goals in this chaos, and the “CyMS”; once ordinary people that have grown maddeningly violent and unpredictable for reasons unknown.
In the game, every character is represented by a detailed 32mm-scale miniature, possessing their own rich history and personality, as well as powerful cybernetic abilities! 2-4 players battle it out (or you can play a solo mode too!) with their squads through various scenarios, to see which faction will survive and escape! Omicron Protocol is filled with innovative and unique game mechanics that make every game thrilling and exciting, ushering players deeper and deeper into the gripping lore of San Lazaro and those who fight in its chaotic streets.
The campaign's around 1/3 of the way to its funding goal with 29 days left to go.
