Skirmish game inspired by the comics funded in minutes

Mantic Games’ latest Kickstarter for The Walking Dead: All Out War has reached its $50,000 goal in just a few minutes, with backers quick to jump on board the survival game, inspired by the bestselling Walking Dead comic series.

“The game is set around Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs, and contains a gaming mat and a selection of barricades, abandoned cars and supplies to give it that authentic The Walking Dead atmosphere.

“Your survivors move across the board using the measuring stick included with the game, and you’ll use the terrain to block Walker routes and sneak up on opposing survivors, or raid enemy camps for supplies. During the game, you will fight a bitter battle for resources against a rival group of survivors – but be careful not to make too much noise, as you’ll draw the attention of the Walkers.”

The game is due to start shipping in August, which is a pretty impressive turn around for a Kickstarter and the base pledge level is set at $125, plus shipping. Interestingly there are five $7,500 pledges that will see the backers being turned into Walkers for the game, so it’ll be interesting to see if they’re snapped up.

We’ve got an interview with Mantic’s Chris Palmer about The Walking Dead in the next issue of Tabletop Gaming, so make sure you keep an eye out for that.
