The Minds behind Zombiecide are back with a new dungeon crawling board game with Massive Darkness!
CoolMiniOrNot and Guillotine Games are partnering up again to bring you the ultimate dungeon crawl board game experience with Massive Darkness! Massive 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.
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!
