The far reaches of outer space. All the familiar things we have here at home are nowhere to be seen. You and your crew must work together to survive in this strange place. That's what you're up to in Unsettled, a new sandbox cooperative board game that's up on Kickstarter now from Orange Nebula.
From the campaign:
Lost amidst the surreal and bizarre unknowns of the far reaches of the cosmos, your crew of explorers must pull together to discover the resources necessary to survive the long journey home.
Unsettled® is a 2-4 player cooperative survival adventure set in the wondrous and unnerving fringes of uncharted space. There are no enemies and no combat, only an environment where every step, breath, and particle around you could mean immediate, terrifying, death.
In these incredible conditions you must complete a series of tasks necessary to your continued survival. Perhaps the water reclamation system on the ship needs repair, or (as usual) food supplies are running low. Before you lies a strange alien landscape - it’s up to you to complete these tasks using…whatever you find out there.
Each time you play you will have a different combination of survival tasks to complete and the things you discover (and their weird properties) will be different as well. So while you always start out knowing what problems you need to solve you have no idea how you’re going to use the world before you to do so (or what the world is going to do to you while you try).
As you explore the environment, encountering wild & unique opportunities along the way, you will work closely with the rest of your crew to achieve your goal of continued existence. The only thing you can be sure of is each other; lose that and you’ll lose all hope of survival.
The campaign's more than 3x funded with 23 days left to go.
