Kingdom Death, a “boutique” nightmare horror tabletop game project created by board game creator Adam Poots, launched a Kickstarter campaign on Friday to raise $100,000 for the new game Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5. Within a matter of days, the initiative has successfully secured more than $5.1 million from over 11,450 backers.
Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 is described as a massive cooperative board game about survival in a nightmare-horror world. Survivors (i.e. players) fight for their lives against an onslaught of creatures. They will use the objects acquired from various battles to build a fragile civilization in a place where humans are at the bottom of a monstrous ecology.
While sharing more details about the game, Poots revealed:
“Initially, I brought the concept for Monster to Kickstarter in order to make a far-away dream into a reality. The runaway train of success helped pack the game with more original art, in-depth gameplay, and fantastically sculpted minis than even I dreamed of. A game this size could not feasibly be made without the community of supportive backers we found on Kickstarter. It’s too expensive to produce and too vivid for distribution. Through the experience of kickstarting Monster, I found a group of people that shares my vision for a blisteringly difficult game with a continually emerging story. I am truly humbled to share it with the world.”
Poots previously raised $2,049,721 for the original Kingdom Death: Monster game from 5,410 backers. The campaign is set to close on January 7th.
