The latest horror game from my pal Hermann Luttman is up for preorder from GMT Games. Players will work together in order to fight off toxic undead mutants in The Plum Island Horror. Six different factions will utilize their strengths, while shoring up their weaknesses, in order to save humanity from an outbreak of mutated beasts. The game is for one to four players, ages 14+, plays in two to three hours, and can be preordered for $64.00 with an expected MSRP of $95.00.
About the game:
On October 24th of an unspecified year—which we are only legally allowed to disclose as “from the recent past”—“Super Storm Nancy” plowed into the East Coast of the United States. Thousands of miles of coastline were devastated, but for Plum Island, a large albeit vulnerable atoll smack dab in the middle of the storm’s path of destruction, it was a horrifying gray-green, apocalyptic nightmare.
Plum Island is a sprawling isle off the Carolina coast and is home to the vibrant seaside town of Greenport. While the heart of the island’s daily hustle and bustle lies in its commerce and tourism, the predominant employer and revenue generator for the island was housed in a huge complex of nondescript buildings located on the north end of the island. This mega-corporation was known locally as “The Pearl,” or more precisely, the Plum Island Research Laboratory (P.I.R.L.). It was an enormous facility run by scientists who conducted government-sponsored biological research and experimentation. All legal and ethical practices of course—or so we were told.
