Gamers may recall The Isle of Doctor Necreux when it was originally released by AEG back in 2010. Long out of print, the game of pulp style heroes attempting to save a group of scientists from an evil genius and his diabolical machinations is about to make a comeback as Invisible City has launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce a new and improved edition. The Island of Doctor Necreaux: Second Edition promises more action and adventure for one to four players. Currently the project has passed the 60% funding mark and you can help bring the game to fruition, and score a copy of the title, at the $40.00 pledge level through April 21st.
About the game:
The Island of Doctor Necreaux: Second Edition (The Island of Doctor Necreaux 2e) is a cooperative adventure game for 1 to 4 secret agents set in a 50s-era pulp-sci-fi world. The diabolical Doctor Necreaux has captured the world’s top scientists and forced them to build a Doomsday Device. His ultimatum: “Surrender unconditionally to my rule within 24 hours or be destroyed!”
The nations of the world agree that surrender is unacceptable. Your team has been sent to Necreaux’s remote island fortress to ensure the world’s safety. As a failsafe, another team has already deployed a bomb deep within the volcano. Your mission: Find the scientists and escort them to the escape shuttle before the bomb blows Dr. Necreaux and his facility to Kingdom Come.
You must be quick, but also cautious! Necreaux’s security systems, diabolical traps, and fiendish creations will fight you every step of the way.
Good luck! The world is counting on you.
