Desperation Gothic Survival Horror Deck Up On Gamefound

Bully Pulpit Games is running a Gamefound campaign for Desperation. However, that's not the name of the game. The games they're funding are Dead House and The Isabel. It's just that both games use the same deck of cards, and that's Desperation. Head over and check out the campaign now.

From the campaign:

Two games of survival horror, often without the survival.

Desperation is two small games, built on the same dark tone and mechanics, that are truly pick-up-and-play experiences for you and your friends.

Both games are designed for 1-5 players in an hour or two.

Dead House is set during the great blizzard of 1888, and in it you will meet the people of the tiny town of Neola, Kansas, who find themselves unprepared in the teeth of the storm. As supplies and sanity dwindle in equal measure, who will live and who will be added to the dead house?

The Isabel is set aboard a three-masted cod schooner fishing in the Gulf of Alaska in 1888. Her passengers and crew have unpalatable secrets, and they are sailing into a storm the Isabel cannot weather. A doomed ship, raging seas, and a handful of leaking dories await them—and then the hard times begin.

The campaign's up and running now with 29 days left to go.
