Rock Manor Games is gearing up to launch a Kickstarter campaign for a new deluxe expansion for Maximum Apocalypse. It’s called Gothic Horrors and it brings in some classic horror tropes, such as Vampires and Cthulhu. To fight off this evil, two new character classes, the Ronin and the Priest, are also being added. Rock Manor has created a Kickstarter page that you can preview and give some notes on, if you so choose.
From the campaign:
Maximum Apocalypse is a cooperative roguelike game filled with adventure, exploration and strategic choices. It was built from the ground up to be very modular and infinitely replayable. The core game became a reality thanks to over 3,000 backers and features 4 different apocalypses and 6 different character classes.
Gothic Horrors is our first deluxe expansion and adds two new apocalyptic scenarios, Cthulhu and Vampires. Face off against life draining vampires, ghouls and werewolves in a classic monster set or try and stop a bunch of cultists from summoning Cthulhu or other unspeakable Lovecraftian horrors. Each apocalypse brings with it new gameplay mechanics such as the Insanity deck or the new night/day event deck. This expansion also adds two new survivor classes, the Priest and Ronin. The Priest is a persistent believer in humanity who offers protection from unspeakable evils. The Ronin is a new close range combatant with dual purpose cards that change based on her combat stance.
