“The Walking Dead” has become a multi-media phenomenom. In addition to the best selling comic book series and #1 rated television show, “The walking Dead” has also spawned a best selling video game, three prose novels, and a role playing board game.
MegaGigaOmniCorp and Top8Magic have come together to launch a Kickstarter campaign in support of the creation of “The Walking Dead: The Prison” as a board Game. For fans of the comic book, The Prison is one of the most popular story-arcs within the series. Check it all out below.
The game is being developed by the fine folks at Skybound with the help of Keith Tralins and Matt Wang who have both worked on board games for “Lost”, and the first “The Walking Dead Board Game,” respectively. They have a reputation for staying true to the source material with their board game adaptations, and they have big plans for the “The Walking Dead: The Prison” board game. Gamers will be able to play as one of the six leaders of the group from Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead” including Rick, Tyreese, Glenn, Dale, Andrea, and Michonne. The goal of the game? To earn enough Leadership Points to take control of the entire group of survivors. To earn Leadership Points, they must fight their way through the zombie swarm in the prison yard, bash their way through the prison itself, reach their destination and secure the area. Along the way, players will have to collect additional resources, rescue Followers, and as expected…fight zombies.
They are offering fans some killer exclusives for anyone that pledges their hard earned cash via Kickstarter.
