Usually in a 1 vs Many game, the 1 is the bad guy. They control all the evil things out there on the board. In Alone, it's the other way around. The 1 is the Hero, trying to escape an infested space ship, while the Many are playing the various terrible traps and aliens they will find along the way. Horrible Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for a new print run of the game that also includes new extras.
From the campaign:
Alone is an asymmetric survival horror game for 2 to 4 players. One player controls the castaway Hero, who has a limited amount of time to complete missions while exploring a map full of dangers and traps that only gets revealed to them a small bit at a time. Up to 3 more players control the forces of Evil, plotting behind their screen against the Hero. They can see the whole map at all times, they control all the creatures lurking in the darkness, and they can play cards to react to the Hero’s actions, with the ultimate goal of killing them.
As you can see from the Featured Image, the game funded in just over a half-hour, so it's on to stretch goals for the next 22 days.
