Mr. B. Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Posthuman, their new post-apoacalytpic board game. Players play as the last of the human race (as far as they know), who are all trying to get to a mythical fortress where the rest of humanity has supposedly gathered. Along the way, they encounter mutants, which humans have started turning into. Will you succumb and become a mutant yourself, trying to keep everyone else from winning? Or will you strive to persevere and make it to the end?
The campaign has passed its funding goal, and so it’s on to stretch goals for the next 29 days.

From the campaign:

In Posthuman you play as one of the last human survivors in a world where nature is reclaiming the planet and our mutated offspring are working to eradicate us. Will you resist mutation and survive, or give in to the inevitable and join the mutants?

In the game, players start off as humans on a solitary journey to a rumored fortress harbouring a community of humans. To reach the fortress the players need to complete ten zones successfully. These zones are found on tiles of varying terrain that are drawn by the players as they explore the world. On their travels the players have the opportunity to meet other human players to trade items and use beneficial skills on each other. They will also encounter randomly drawn mutant adversaries and be assailed by players who have switched to the mutant side. Encounters with mutants may inflict scars, and the more scars players have, the closer they will be to mutating and switching sides. Will they strive to cling to their humanity and make a run for the fortress, thus winning the game? Or will they give in to the ever more tempting mutation, join the mutants, and deny the win from the rest of the humans?

  • Does anyone know about the quality of the company? The theme sounds great, but I don’t want to bet on some designer we don’t know anything about.

      Looks like they’ve had several previous kickstarters under the “Mr B Games” banner, all delivered within 1 month or less of estimate, 2 of them earlier than estimated.

      “Alien Uprising” shipped in July 2014 (estimate was June 2014)
      “Spurs” shipped in Aug 2014 (est. June 2014)
      “Realm of Heroes” just finished shipping earlier this month (est January 2015, was affected by the port slowdown)
      “Clockwork Kingdom” just finished shipping (est was Jun 2015 – yes, they came in 3 months early)
      “Spurs” expansion is shipping now (estimate April 2015)
