This looks very interesting. I love the setting and the idea of flipping a room from normal to ‘madness’ is an nice twist.
New company, but already funded and unlocked 4 stretch goals.
Early bid only available until 9am PDT tomorrow (just over 10hrs I think as I type).
I’m backing it to take advantage of EB, but I can always back out if I change my mind later.October 15, 2016 at 11:51 am #13299
Something about this feels off… it looks too good to be true… too CMON … and their update emails are the bad English I find in scam emails for iTunes etcOctober 16, 2016 at 5:40 am #13300
@8th : to be fair, English is not their first language, and I’m discovering a lot of first time games producers manage to hit their projected target dates (even if their distribution companies send them out on the last day of the stated month), making them actually better than CMON… if only because CMON has too many units to produce compared to these first-timers.October 16, 2016 at 6:49 am #13301
Just a case of paranoia I think. I get a lot of scam emails with bad spelling and poor English from banks I don’t have accounts with. Many originate in China and Asia as I understand it.
I’m still backing. It looks legit from what research I have done and if it’s a con it’s convinced a lot of people.
My main concern is the game spiralling out of control with stretch goals and falling far behind schedule.October 16, 2016 at 8:50 pm #13302
@8th: “My main concern is the game spiralling out of control with stretch goals and falling far behind schedule.”
Yeah, well… if we see TOO many SGs hit, that’s going to be a given, so best resign yourself to it 😉

Have you backed it CK?
I think add ons are a bit expensive. Epic monsters are not cheap and the expansion doesn’t seem to have much for $50.
Investigator dice have symbols on 5 & 6, so I think my Arkham Horror dice will replace them.October 17, 2016 at 6:24 am #13304
@8th: yes, I’ve backed it … for now. Need to confirm with game play video. Lots of neat concepts… but no game play video.
I’m just going for the basic pledge with no add-ons.October 17, 2016 at 6:57 am #13305
There’s an Undead Viking review which explains gameplay.
Looks like 5-6 is success like Arkham Horror.October 17, 2016 at 5:18 pm #13306
Somehow I’ve never really liked the guy’s reviews… I don’t know why.October 17, 2016 at 5:50 pm #13307
I know what you mean. I’m not keen on Rahdo runs through either, but they both give an idea of what the game they’re demoing is about.November 4, 2016 at 8:37 am #13323
Watched the set up and round one video. Worried it might be a bit too much like Mansions of Madness.
Still pledged for now and there’s a lot of stuff in the box with the stretch goals, but I might back out later.November 4, 2016 at 12:53 pm #13325
To be honest…tones of plastic crack in board games have lost their appeal to me with so many of those games around now 🙁
