I don't always feel competitive. Sometimes, I'd rather just work together with my fellow gamers for a common goal. Or, there's no other gamers around and it's just me wanting to sit down and play a solo game. Well, I'm in luck, as Underestimated Games is running a Kickstarter campaign to bring their Purgatory miniatures game a Cooperative and Solo version.
From the campaign:
Purgatory is the game you always wanted and absolutely must have! Our game is set in a world where Heaven has imploded! After a titanic war between Angels, renegades have been flung to the corners of the Ultraverse. These traitors lurk amongst the stars, manipulating and deviously plotting against their former kin. While others do not fear the retribution chasing their heels, brazenly defiant that they have enslaved worlds and wage war in the name of their lord - Satan.
Earth is one such place. Humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. Angels run riot on one of the largest staging grounds in the galaxy as we know it. Humans eke out an existence, ultimately serving Angelic Lords or themselves in an endless cycle of death and rebirth.
The popular and successful first Kickstarter project launched Purgatory unto the world, delivering a unique skirmish game that combined deck building and faction building, alongside fresh and unique models. Now we are expanding this range up to the 30 model mark as well as introducing new game modes so that you can alternate between: SOLO, 1 vs. 1 or Co-Operative play.
The Solo/Co-Operative play keeps with the theme of Purgatory, but rather than picking your optimised gang for 1 vs. 1 play, you instead randomly generate your gang through a series of quick-play Encounters, building your team to take down a boss. The idea brings elements from online play, where you look for a group to tackle a dungeon or raid boss. The Encounter Sets include these 'bosses' and with the different difficulty settings that you can use, the re-playability you gain from Purgatory for a low entry cost is considerable.
Take a look through our rich history by clicking on the image of the Rulebook below, and you can see how Purgatory plays from the first version of the Kickstarter. This book is now being adapted to include the solo/co-operative rules, but with a 44-page background, you can really get a glimpse of the world and the setting behind Purgatory!
Welcome on board in the fight for Earth and the War for Heaven.
The campaign's around 1/3 of the way to its goal with still 10 days left on the clock.
