About

Z First Impact is a co-op game of survival horror for 1-4 players set in a cityscape ravaged by meteors, zombies, mutants, and aliens. Originally published in France, in 2015, Z First Impact is coming to the English-speaking world for the first time through this Kickstarter!

Players control powerful Survivors in the employ of a mysterious corporation over a series of linked scenarios in the tradition of over-the-top retro horror games like Parasite Eve and Resident Evil. The game offers substantial replay with additional gameplay modes and is supported by a free Augmented Reality app.

With the game already produced, this Kickstarter will allow our team to repackage the core game and it's first big-box expansion with English-language rules, new back-of-box text, address the game's errata from its first edition, and bring the game to the English-speaking world for the first time. We'll also be producing digital, French-language documents of all new rules and expansion materials.

This means we can deliver backers their copies of the core game and first expansion in just a few months! Stretch goal content is all new and will ship separately in September of 2019, but you'll be able to start playing with the core game and Chapter 2 Expansion right later this year.

If you already own the original edition of Z First Impact, Chapter 1, you're welcome to substitute Chapter 2 with the English-language rules in place of Chapter 1 in your Basic Pledge.

Z First Impact is a nail-biting co-op game of scarcity and danger. Your team of Survivors are elite combatants in the employ of the mysterious Arkkos corporation. In Chapter 1 your team is tasked with establishing a base of operations in the ruins of New York City. You'll track every bullet, operate a deadly vehicle, and hunt for new gear to replace broken equipment, and work as a team to combat the ever-growing horde of zombies, mutants, and worse across a campaign of 8 linked scenarios.

Chapter 2 continues the story with 4 new survivors in new 8 scenario campaign introducing a new board, new aliens, and the biggest threat you've seen yet, the mighty Titan!

The rules also include alternate playmodes like PVP and greater levels of difficulty to existing scenarios, giving Z First Impact tremendous replayability.

For the English-language edition we've combined the rulebooks for both the Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 box sets. We'll also be taking this opportunity to gather a final round of feedback from the free rules download before we print the new rulebooks. Feel free to email community@wysiwygames.com with your thoughts. 

All stretch goals are included in the All-in Pledge, but some may be available as add-ons for backers who would like even more dangerous foes to add to their games. Check back here as stretch goals are revealed and unlocked!

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing and shipping miniatures boardgames is a lot of work with many moving parts to manage. Fortunately, our core game and first expansion have already been manufactured; for those items we just need to produce the new English-language, rulebooks, print new back-of-box stickers in English, and have them repacked! Our team have decades of experience working on boardgames and Kickstarter and we are confident in our plans to repackage the core English-language edition and begin production of our stretch goal content. While overseas manufacturing can carry with it unpredictable factors we'll endeavor to keep you informed every step of the way.
