Cool Mini or Not, the studio behind the hit board games Zombiecide, Relic Knights, Dogs of War, and Rum & Bones, hit Kickstarter earlier this week to raise $200,000 for its new gaming project, Massive Darkness. Within just a few days, the company’s 24th campaign on the crowdfunding platform not only secured the initial goal, it has also captured over $1.1 million from 10,000 backers.
Massive Darkness is described as a dungeon crawl board game without a game master and streamlined rules. It is for 1 to 6 players and each player goes through a series of quests to defeat the “forces of darkness.”
“The Darkness that had been vanquished long ago is rallying all manner of wicked creatures to its cause. The legendary Lightbringers who once stood against it are no more, and so it is up to a handful of untested heroes to gather their courage and venture into the dungeons to uncover the Darkness’ plans, and stop them before it can spread throughout the land!”
Each game is equipped with the following:
- 75 highly detailed figures, including:
- 6 Hero figures
- 63 Enemy figures
- 6 large Roaming Monster figures
- 6 plastic Hero dashboards
- 6 color plastic bases
- 12 color plastic pegs
- 12 custom dice
- 9 double-sided game tiles
- 280 cards
- 6 Class Sheet pads
- 111 tokens
Those who back the project will receive the Lightbringer Pledge, which includes Massive Darkness’ core box plus exclusive Cliffbreaker Cyclope (which is described as a towering behemoth that should cause any sane hero to run for cover), and all unlocked stretch goals.
Massive Darkness’ Kickstarter initiative is set to close on July 7th.
