You Can Help Make The Walking Dead: The Prison – Board Game a Reality
Last week Squires told us about a mobile game on its way based on AMC's "The Walking Dead", and now comes word on The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game, a sequel to Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead: The Board Game set inside the world of the infamous prison.
Independent game developers MegaGigaOmniCorp and Top8Magic have launched a Kickstarter campaign for The Walking Dead: The Prison – Board Game, which features characters and artwork from Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic series.
In the game you and up to five of your friends will take on the role of one of the six leaders of the group: Rick, Tyreese, Glenn, Dale, Andrea, and Michonne.
The stand-alone project is fully supported by the team at Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment and is being developed by creators who worked on its predecessor, the hit 2011 game Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead: The Board Game, published by Z-Man Games, as well as a board game for "Lost." It features incredible artwork by series artist Charlie Adlard.
From The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game Kickstarter page:
The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game focuses on the events of Issues 13 through 24: the discovery of, fight to clean out, and struggle to control… The Prison.
The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game will have an MSRP of $49.99. Backers of The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game will not only be first to receive the game before it is in stores but also will have the opportunity to purchase the game at a lower price and have access to Kickstarter-exclusive game components and rule sets.
After months in the wild and on the run, Rick, Lori, Andrea, Glenn, and the rest of the survivors find the ultimate survival spot outside Atlanta, Georgia: a fenced in prison, still in good condition. Of course, it’s filled with zombies that need to be cleared, but before the survivors can do that, they learn all too quickly that they aren’t the only ones seeking refuge inside the prison. With existing tenants (Dexter, Axel, Thomas, and Andrew) to handle and new group members to integrate with (Michonne), the challenge of living in the prison isn’t just about fighting zombies...
The survivors end up struggling with each other for control over the group's fate.
Just about three weeks remain in the game's campaign. For more info visit The Walking Dead: The Prison - Board Game on Kickstarter.
