Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion

Project image

Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion is a stand-alone follow-up to Nightmare Forest: Dead Run from Solar Flare Games. It’s a Cooperative game, where players must work together to cleanse the forest of Aliens before it is too late! Based on the number of characters, you will deal out a grid of Forest Cards. Each turn, every character will move around the Forest and decide which Forest Cards to flip over to potentially expose Aliens, fiendish Traps, useful Gear, or valuable Allies. There are four levels of cards, with higher challenges requiring that players choose whether to hope for a lucky roll or to combine their unique Abilities and Gear to improve their chances of defeating powerful foes. To win, you and your friends must stay alive and clear the entire forest before the last turn. If any player is killed, or if the game ends before the Forest is cleared, then the Aliens overrun The City, and destroy humanity. You can back Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion on Kickstarter now for as little as $25.
