Steamforged games, famous for their crowdsourced ‘Dark Souls: The Board Game’, have struck again, this time with the ever popular and evergreen; Resident Evil 2.
The game is exactly as you’d imagine it, it’s a tile based board and numerous miniature figures that bring the action alive; it all looks fantastic and to be honest, it’s reasonably priced too with over 2,000 early bird special priced packs at £65. It’s a very tempting package that is for sure! You can check it out here.
Everything about this board game scream authenticity and the figurines look to be of a very high quality;
A quality that goes far beyond the main characters too, the enemy characters look excellent as does the item cards, it just looks brilliant!
The game’s structure follows that of classic RPGs of the early 90s, scenario-based that keeps playtime down (a la Heroquest) but interconnected to allow fans to create a story (or by using their imagination, make their own, unique campaign). Again the artwork is second to none and it looks excellent!
To me, this is a very interesting and tempting project that I will undoubtedly be backing, I am in desperate need for a new board game and I think that I should have no issues convincing MrJohnSherry to come round and play!
Do check it out on kickstarter!
