When I first came across this, I thought "well of course a new Resident Evil board game got funded quickly," but that isn't the case here. Nemesis, by the collaborative effort of Awaken Realms and Rebel, is a board game with a whole new level of maybe co-operative gameplay. That isn't a typo, this game will make you question if you can really trust your friends and allies as you try to escape the death trap of a ship you are stuck on. Check out the full breakdown trailer:
I have to say that the game does seem like one of the best board games I have ever heard of. It blends a mix of RPG, action, and strategy together with a hint of poker thanks to the secret objectives that each player will have. It is the most intricate board game I have seen since Dungeons & Dragons, except this won't need a DM to play and it can even be played as a single player.
Nemesis seems like it will play out like a sci-fi horror video game, but on a board game instead. The creatures for the game look terrifying as they are and I can only imagine they are going to color them in to make the creatures look all the more horrifying. This is the dream game for an RPG player and would make an amazing party game!
Reaching their goal in four minutes has to be a world record for an unknown company that reached out to Kickstarter, if not a world record overall. It's insane that the trailer on the Kickstarter page is longer than how long it took them to reach their goal funding amount. This is the definition of an ideal run with a crowd funding site.
It is still on Kickstarter if you are interested in helping them go even further beyond their goal that is already over 3900% funded. What do you think of the board game Nemesis and its intricacies?
