Waste Knights: Second Edition Up On Kickstarter

It's a post-apocalyptic Australia, or, as we call it, simply Australia. ;)

There's few resources and everyone wants them. You need to make sure that you have them. That's the goal in Waste Knights, the second edition of which is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Waste Knights: Second Edition is a post-apocalyptic game of survival and adventure set in dystopian Australia half a century from now. It is a 1-4 player experience allowing you to play cooperatively, competitively or in solo mode depending on the adventure you choose. The game is inspired by cult movies and books of the genre enabling players to immerse themselves in a ruined world full of gangs, mutated creatures, sentient machines and – most of all – unforgettable stories.

When you sit at the table, you become one of rugged heroes of the ruined continent, facing innumerable challenges in their journey through the wasted Australian outback. Depending on the adventure you play, you will have to make narrative choices, overcome obstacles, fight unique, fearsome enemies presented on beautifully illustrated cards and roleplay your knight whenever you encounter various events and denizens of this destroyed land.

The game is story-oriented, with each adventure branching out into different plots full of unique rules, goals and associated tales. You will make lots of decisions – from huge ones affecting the world around you and the course of the adventure to seemingly irrelevant, pertaining to your knight. However, no matter what you do, you can be sure that each and every choice you make will have some impact on the game – favors will be returned, wrongs avenged, friends and enemies made for life.

Easy-to-learn rules combined with a unique narrative setup enable you to quickly start the game and plunge head-first into action. At the same time, each adventure comprised of different plots offers custom game mechanics to enhance your gameplay and provide you with lots of strategic options. Hundreds of entries – or story snippets – guarantee replayability and create a rich setting for your exploits. Additionally, when you start the game you will have no idea where the story will lead you and whether your today’s allies will not become rivals tomorrow.

As you can see from the featured image, the game is well far and above its goal. It's still got 20 days to get even higher.
