So, you've found yourself with your spaceship impounded and you locked up in jail on a space station. That's no place that anybody wants to be, so you've decided to escape. Using whatever you can find, and maybe a bit of luck, you escape, find your ship, and make a hasty getaway. That's exactly what you'll be doing in Escape the Dark Sector, a new adventure game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Welcome to Themeborne’s third Kickstarter campaign.
Whether you're a returning backer or just discovering the Escape the Dark™ series for the first time, this new campaign is for you.
With great pleasure we introduce our latest game: Escape the Dark Sector™.
Escape the Dark Sector™ is a simple, sci-fi adventure game with a focus on atmosphere, storytelling, and player cooperation – perfect for newcomers to tabletop gaming. It takes about 2 minutes to set up, lasts around 45 minutes, and no two games are ever the same.
Playing as the beleaguered crew of an impounded starship, players find themselves confined to the detention block of a vast space station. Using a variety of advanced gear and weaponry, they will embark on a desperate mission to find their ship and blast their way home.
Over the course of three acts the crew will have to overcome a variety of dangers, from cyborg guards and faulty replicators to killer alien organisms - each of which is represented by a large, beautifully illustrated chapter card.
As these immersive chapter cards are revealed one by one, the game takes on the form of a shared storybook experience, with the players making decisions about what to do each chapter before using a combination of dice and item cards to complete the challenges before them.
The goal of the game is to complete every chapter in the mission deck, and then defeat the final boss. To win, you must keep each member of the crew alive. If any player is killed the game ends immediately!
The campaign's coming close to 7x funded with 12 days left to go.
