It takes months, if not years, to get a game ready for even a Kickstarter campaign. There's concept, design, graphics, layout, writing a rulebook, all sorts of things that take time. So, I don't doubt that Grey Fox Games has been working on For Science! for a while now. But damn... the story's that you're a bunch of scientists looking to cure a worldwide pandemic. Yeah, hits the nail pretty much on the head for what's going on outside right now. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
A fast-paced, cooperative, block-stacking game about saving the world from a pandemic in the name of science!
The campaign's more than 3x funded with 14 days left to go.
