Pretty much every gamer out there knows of Kingdom Death. The original Kickstarter campaign made over $2mil. But then… oh the troubles. It was one of the campaigns that took the longest to actually deliver. However, from all I’ve seen, it was worth the wait… and worth the weight, since the final game’s components made it so heavy that selling it retail wasn’t really an option. Well, the game is back up on Kickstarter with a new, revised version, and a new record-breaking Kickstarter.
For those that don’t know, Kingdom Death is a highly immersive tactical rpg board game. You play as villagers in a harsh and terrifying world, killing the various monsters that inhabit it, and taking pieces from them in order to sculpt and craft new gear. Will you be able to build up your village and protect yourselves from the various monsters? Or will you end up as a red smear on the ground?
The campaign’s doing well (understatement of the year). It’s already got over $5 million in funding. No, that’s not a typo. There’s plenty of time still to go, too. 40 days, in fact. So you’ve got some time to save up your nickels if you want to back it.
