CoolMiniOrNot and Guillotine Games are partnering up again to bring you the ultimate dungeon crawl board game experience with Massive DarknessMassive Darkness brings the classic fantasy RPG experience to modern board gaming, with an action-packed campaign chock full of gorgeous miniatures and a streamlined system that keeps the focus on the heroes’ actions, with no need for a game master to control the enemies.

Massive Darkness Heroes

Using the popular Zombicide system as a starting point, Massive Darkness adds all the richness of a dungeon crawl RPG. Pick your hero, choose a class, decide on what skills to spend your XP, get loot by searching the dungeon or killing special enemies that can use the equipment against you! Face a multitude of different enemy types, coming in all shapes and sizes, whose behavior is resolved automatically. Or you can try to sneak around enemies by taking advantage of dark areas of the map.

Look for the Kickstarter campaign for Massive Darkness, coming in a few months with plenty of surprises for us to uncover!


If this game is in the same vein as Zombicide but with a fantasy dungeon crawling RPG twist I am SO in. One of the best things about Zombicide is that you don’t need a GM to run the baddies – everyone gets to be a hero and you all get to kick butt all the time! Mechanically, it’s a really great system and I can’t wait to see where they take this one. I’ll be keeping an eye out for this Kickstarter for sure.


I got dibs on Carlos the Dwarf!

    Could be interesting. I wonder if its going to utilize a full campaign system or if its just going to be a bunch of static quests in a book with no between game character progression (like zombicide).

    I hope the minis are decent, especially those ‘not Chaos Dwarfs’.

  • dave long island

    That’s a lotta darkness, without a doubt, but I don’t know if it qualifies as being a massive amount of darkness.

    Are these guys still using Kickstarter?

  • Ty Hayden

    This makes KS Project number 23 for them. I find it funny how they always announce one of their KS Projects whenever Sodapop Miniatures is preparing to launch one.

  • JonnyRocket

    Skip the damn KS pre order circus and release the game already!
    Like for Black Plague, I’ll wait for the retail release, it’s usually faster.

      lol, yea I’m still waiting on just the core BP from them…
