The Breach Board Game Up On Kickstarter

The Gene.sys database has a wealth of knowledge inside. And wealth is just what's on your mind as you look to hack your way in and get that information for yourself. But you're not the only hacker on the 'net, and it's not going to be as easy as trying Password1234 at the log-in. That's where you find yourself in The Breach, a new competitive board game up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

The Breach is a competitive Net Crawler game for 1-4 players, lasting approximately 25 minutes per player, where they attempt to breach the Gene.sys database to steal secret information.

Each player is a Breacher, a digital rebel, guided by their ideals or by their Faction interests. The game map is Gene.sys, a virtual universe of mysterious origin, currently controlled by the Achab Corporation. Inside it preserves and hides unimaginable knowledge and technologies, whose progressive decoding has allowed the Corporation to expand its influence and power over the entire planet in just a few short months.

After hacking into the database, the Breacher Avatars will need to face several dangers: not just other Breachers, but also Guardian controlled by the A.R.M., who will try to stop the incursions. In case of need, A.R.M. will also use powerful Heralds to put an end to intrusion attempts. The Breach is a Net Crawler with a distinctive resource management system, set collection mechanics, and variable powers. Your objective is to spread your viruses inside the database while gathering as much information as possible. You will be able to upgrade your Avatar, assign viruses, fight I.C.E. and other Avatars, explore the rooms of Gene.sys, but also install programs and use cheat codes to manipulate the database according to your needs.

The campaign's headed to 3x funded with 15 days left to go.
