One of the greatest films of our time is Ridley Scott’s “Alien.” I believe.
It was such a gritty, realistic view of the future. A group of co-workers on their way home, after a long haul, are requested to pull over to check out a vehicle that has crashed. When one of the team brings back a pet that picks them off, one by one, while they are stranded in the middle of nowhere. Leaving them helpless and alone.
Well, that’s kind of the story. The things I love about the film are its cramp corridors, the slow tension, the isolated setting and the philosophy of the creature. Things that make for good horror and storytelling. In the past, thanks to technology, we have had the chance to experience this situation by playing the Playstation 3 game, Dead Space. And now we can kinda capture that experience on our table top.
You may have missed out on it’s original release as it was a Kickstarter only project, with two pledge levels. The basic game and version with 3D board. Luckily, it is coming back to Kickstarter as of February the 14th 2019, with some promised new bit for those who own the first version and the opportunity for those that missed its first tour around the sun, to catch up.
But should you back it?
As always, I am here to help with my first impression of the game. And I have compiled them into a video and a written article that you can see below. Yes, I love the theme, and yes, I love this genre of game, so take that into consideration when I say that I can’t wait to play it again. And as always, I hope that this helps point you in the right direction to decide if this is a Kickstarter for you, or not.
