You may have seen my first look video for Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion from SolarFlare Games (if not check the vid out here) and the Kickstarter project launched earlier this morning. Within just the first six hours of crowdfunding the game has already passed the 60% threshold for funding! This new title happens to be the followup to Nightmare Forest: Dead Run and this time the players will cooperate together in order to defeat the expeditionary elements of an invasion from outer space.
At this rate, NFAI will certainly fund and there are plenty of stretch goals for supporters to unlock. You can lend your support through Febuary 22nd and reserve a copy of the game at the $25 pledge level.
About the project:
You are The Lone Survivor of last year’s “Dead Run Incident,” the night when the animals came back from the dead hungering for the brains of humans. Somehow you escaped the Nightmare Forest before it was overrun by the undead. After that horrifying experience, you fortified your heart and appointed yourself the investigator of the strange, wild, and unexplained in and around The City.
Recently you saw strange lights hovering outside The City. You gathered a few trusted friends and headed back into the Nightmare Forest. There you discovered an Alien Expeditionary Force seeking to gather human specimens they can use to conquer the entire planet. You must defeat all the Aliens, without any of your friends being killed and collected, before the Aliens break out of the Forest and wipe out humanity.
Can you can survive another journey into the Nightmare Forest?
Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion is a Cooperative game, where players must work together to cleanse the forest of Aliens before it is too late! Based on the number of characters, you will deal out a grid of Forest Cards. Each turn, every character will move around the Forest and decide which Forest Cards to flip over to potentially expose Aliens, fiendish Traps, useful Gear, or valuable Allies.
There are four levels of cards, with higher challenges requiring that players choose whether to hope for a lucky roll or to combine their unique Abilities and Gear to improve their chances of defeating powerful foes.
To win, you and your friends must stay alive and clear the entire forest before the last turn. If any player is killed, or if the game ends before the Forest is cleared, then the Aliens overrun The City, and destroy humanity.
This is a stand-alone cooperative play style expansion of the Nightmare Forest game series. You do not need Nightmare Forest: Dead Run (everyone for themselves) to be able to play Alien Invasion.
Alien Invasion, while cooperative, has a great SOLO-PLAYER MODE as well.
