Nobody said that exploring the deep reaches of space was going to be easy or a safe thing to do. Harsh environments, alien life, and even your fellow adventurers may end up being your adversaries. It's navigating through all of that that you'll be doing in The Shadow Planet: The Board Game, up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In strange and remote regions of space, death may not be the worst end…
The Shadow Planet™: The Board Game is a retro sci-fi game set on a planet hiding ancient and alien horror. Its story is based on the Italian graphic novel expertly written and illustrated by the Blasteroid Bros, who were inspired by movie classics, such as Forbidden Planet, The Thing or Alien. The game’s innovative mechanics have been designed by Gianluca and Giacomo Santopietro, veteran creators famous – among other titles – for Letters from Whitechapel and H.P. Lovecraft: Kingsport Festival. This has resulted in a very unique blend of a gripping horror plot, and rules encompassing a revolutionary system of deck-building, strategy and hidden goals.
The campaign's around halfway funded with 20 days left to go.
