    Alone is an unusual twist on the one vs many type of game…

    One player controls the hero and up to three others play the forces of evil…

    Look a bit like Alien with radar and hidden map. There’s an expensive version with resin terrain… which could be used for RPG’s and skirmish games I suspect.

    I will watch for the moment…

    I hate to be critical all the time, but while slick-looking, I can’t see anything that particularly sets it apart from a lot of games I already have. Cultists, aliens, half-transformed infected humans … yawn!

    I know… but I thought the inverse one vs many was worth a mention.

    One of my players would never choose to be the one… too much like being a GM… but given the choice of being a pseudo GM or the one would put him in a dilemma.

    As I said… I’m watching, but it would have to inspire me to get me to back it. Recently I asked for refunds and/or cancelled pledges because I was backing stuff I didn’t really want and now I’m trying to get control of my wallet again.

    I dropped out of Alternity 2.0 RPG which is a game system I liked because it was struggling to fund (it did, but not by much) and they wanted a lot for shipping to UK.

    Drowned Earth I’m in for £2, but think I’ll drop it before the end as I know I’ll want miniatures and £100 for rules, plus two factions of five (and one bonus mini) is a lot.

    Hab Block I’m still in, but only the low pledge and I’ll need to see more free stuff to stay in the campaign.

    I’ve gone off the one vs many format in recent times. It feels so lonely being the bad guy all the time! 🙂 And strangely unsatisfying when you win.

    I’ve been renovating our new house for the last couple of months, so I am definitely holding off on new purchases as much as possible…

    Good luck with that ‘holding off on purchases’…

    How many kickstarters are pending for you at present? I think your last was Lankhmar wasn’t it?

    Ugh. My currently outstanding Kickstarters are a LOT more than yours, UH. I’m putting a ban on my Kickstarting this year. Rising Sun should be my last major Kickstarter. Should.

    (Also notice I said “major”?) 😉
