The second release in the IDW Games line of Outpost titles is now available. Hopefully the company has addressed design issues from the first release, Outpost: Siberia, since it ended up being a rather poorly received game. In Outpost: Amazon the survival action moves to the jungle. The game is for two to six players, ages 12+, plays in 30-45 minutes, and carries an MSRP of $19.99.
From IDW Games:
Welcome to Outpost 2, located deep in the heart of the Amazon. Congratulations! Being appointed to this Outpost means you are one of the finest minds in your field of study. While you are here, it is your team’s job to collect and report on the various exotic plants and creatures native to the area.
Unfortunately, you’ve arrived during troubled times…A recent report shows that the locals have been moving away from the riverbanks over the last few weeks, and night vision surveillance has captured photos that seem too strange to be true. Now, you must make your own way down the river to the coast, where a rescue ship is waiting. Along the way, you must investigate and verify these images.
Take your crew and head down the river, making sure to capture as many specimens as possible. But be careful: the locals have been leaving this area for a reason. The trip will be long, and you’ll need to make sure you balance your scientific curiosity against the need for safety. Good luck to you and your team. You’ll need it!
