Steamforged Games Ltd’s Kickstarter campaign for a Resident Evil 2 board game, which is fully licensed by Capcom, has raised an impressive amount of over £700,000 and counting. Its initial £150,000 goal was met in no time, and in its final stretch, the campaign continues to smash additional goals.
“We’re insanely happy you guys have done such a tremendous job of spreading the word about this project, and really pushing it on the various social media platforms,” wrote the company. “Over the course of this campaign, we’ve been delighted to see a fantastic community spring up, and have been excited by your enthusiasm for Resident Evil 2 – The Board Game.”
An official overview is as follows:
Resident Evil 2: The Board Game is a co-operative survival horror game for 1-4 players set in the Resident Evil universe. Players choose from a number of familiar characters before venturing into the zombie-infested streets and buildings of Raccoon City in a desperate fight to escape the nightmare!
Designed specifically for the Resident Evil universe from the ground up, this game brings the thrills—and the dangers!—of the setting to the tabletop. World-class miniatures and innovative new mechanics help deliver an experience that captures the essence of the much-loved original video games while offering new twists and turns.
