I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubble gum... because I can't go out to the store... ... ... ... Anyway, They Live is a classic cult movie about aliens taking over the world through subterfuge, subliminal messages, and infiltration. Thanks to a special pair of sunglasses, their secret is out and now it's time to put a stop to them by exposing their lies. That's what you'll be trying to do in They Live: Assault on Cable 54, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
They Live: Assault on Cable 54 is a narrative-driven co-operative adventure game for 4-6 players (with an additional 1-3 player 'blind play mode' that has now been unlocked as part of our day 1 funding goal).
The action-packed board game will let you explore the sprawling city of LA to build a stash of weapons, allies, and items as you progress towards your ultimate goal; the assault on Cable 54 and the defeat of our unearthly invaders. THEY are the ones in control of the signal, and it’s your mission to take them down!
Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a game if it were that easy...
There are enemies hiding in your midst attempting to sabotage your progress, and even some of your own team may not be who they say they are. As a member of the resistance, it’s your job to weed out the traitors and take them down before it’s too late.
Lucky for you… you have these! Now put them on, or start eating that trash can.
The game's already up and over its funding goal with 29 days left to go.
