Purgatory is the game you always wanted and absolutely must have! Our game is set in a world where Heaven has imploded! After a titanic war between Angels, renegades have been flung to the corners of the Ultraverse. These traitors lurk amongst the stars, manipulating and deviously plotting against their former kin. While others do not fear the retribution chasing their heels, brazenly defiant that they have enslaved worlds and wage war in the name of their lord - Satan. 

Earth is one such place. Humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. Angels run riot on one of the largest staging grounds in the galaxy as we know it. Humans eke out an existence, ultimately serving Angelic Lords or themselves in an endless cycle of death and rebirth. 

The popular and successful first Kickstarter project launched Purgatory unto the world, delivering a unique skirmish game that combined deck building and faction building, alongside fresh and unique models. Now we are expanding this range up to the 30 model mark as well as introducing new game modes so that you can alternate between: SOLO, 1 vs. 1 or Co-Operative play. 

The Solo/Co-Operative play keeps with the theme of Purgatory, but rather than picking your optimised gang for 1 vs. 1 play, you instead randomly generate your gang through a series of quick-play Encounters, building your team to take down a boss. The idea brings elements from online play, where you look for a group to tackle a dungeon or raid boss. The Encounter Sets include these 'bosses' and with the different difficulty settings that you can use, the re-playability you gain from Purgatory for a low entry cost is considerable. 

Take a look through our rich history by clicking on the image of the Rulebook below, and you can see how Purgatory plays from the first version of the Kickstarter. This book is now being adapted to include the solo/co-operative rules, but with a 44-page background, you can really get a glimpse of the world and the setting behind Purgatory!

Welcome on board in the fight for Earth and the War for Heaven.

Shipping will be calculated in the pledge manager. This is designed to ensure that you get the maximum value for shipping, especially considering all of the models available for you to tailor your pledge and gaming experience. 

As an estimate: A Starter or Encounter Ser is a small package and with UK Royal Mail 2nd class this would be £2.95 in the UK. 1st class is £3.95. Shipping to the US would be approximately £6.00 and Europe (Germany/France) approximately £4.50 - Standard International service.  (These figures are Estimates and are subject to change)

We are crossing realms with Mythos from Paranoid Miniatures. You will note that there is a pledge level shown in the rewards that allow you to access a free Jini Msaki pack. In order to do this, you must pledge at the same level on the Mythos campaign running at the same time. The Jini Msaki will come with playable rules for both systems.

Purgatory is back! But this time, it's bringing your friends along too...

In 2017 Underestimated Games successfully delivered the Kickstarter - Purgatory. A game played in a skirmish setting where the fallout from the War for Heaven had spilled onto Earth. Where you could make your factions and play competitive games against your friends on a 1 v 1 basis. 

This next project is the ultimate in hybrid gaming. Why should you pay good money to run the same dungeon, over and over? Why should you pay good money only to be limited to playing with the same 5 heroes over and over? Why even should you be limited to one mode of play for the games you buy? We saw this feedback and well... we said, "Hold my beer, we've got this!"

Purgatory - Co-Operative Edition addresses the value you receive, in return for your hard earned money. Not only do you get high quality, detailed resin models, produced by one of the finest casters the UK has to offer. We, through this Kickstarter, are expanding the range to break the 25 model barrier, giving you more options to build your faction and play against friends. But most importantly, we have added fresh content and rules to allow you to play a SOLO and CO-OPERATIVE mode! The cooperative mode, just on the 25 models that already exist, gives you over 1.6 million different combinations of play. #VALUE

Just so that sinks in. All previous backers and owners of Purgatory models, will now be able to play not one, but THREE systems with their models! 

How do we achieve this? We have simply included an Encounter Card, which comes with every model purchased. Previously, each model came with a Stat Card, with everything needed to play competitively. The Encounter Card, combined with the NEW Encounter Sets, allows you to play SOLO or CO-OPERATIVELY as well. 

Purgatory is a game that delivers value. A blend of high-quality models, at a sensible price point. With the ability to play SOLO, CO-OPERATIVELY or competitively against your friends and families. It brings a combination of deck and gang building elements to break up the typical monotony offered by dungeon crawling board games, as well as now adding Encounters that build your gang as you play at random, ready to face off against a boss, dungeon style and see if you can be victorious! 

Purgatory is the game you always wanted and absolutely need.

Each of the Starter Sets come with the following:

  • 3 Detailed 32mm scale resin models, complete with resin insert and lipped gaming base
  • 3 Stat Cards with abilities and rules
  • 3 Encounter Cards for CO-OP & Solo play
  • 1 Purgatory Random Direction Dice
  • 13 Gift of the Gods Cards, including 1 x gang specific card, unique to the box
  • 1 Rulebook (note each order, regardless of factions or encounters bought, will be issued 1 per purchase) 

There are 3 starting Encounter Sets. The Encounter Sets have been created with Co-operative and Solo play in mind. These Encounters are the boss fight and are to be attempted once you have completed the mini games to build your gang. The great thing about this process is that it's entirely random, based on the models you own. For online gamers, it's akin to the 'Looking for Group' process which randomly draws online players together to take down a larger, more dangerous foe. By building your gang at random, who knows what you will have at your disposal as you head off to the boss and the Encounter Sets shown below...

Msaki Raiders - This Encounter brings your gang face to face with an Alien Invasion. Abominations from a unknown world have infiltrated the Earth and our blood is all that can sustain them. In this Encounter you stumble across one of their leaders feeding on the carrion of a recent skirmish. Repulsed by this heinous act, you decide to act but can you defeat your foe before it becomes too powerful to overcome?

Risks and challenges

We managed to learn a lot from our first successful Kickstarter, to which we delivered on time, with 40% early. When you first step into the world of Kickstarter there are many unknowns, variables occur that even with the best laid plans, can affect your project. We didn't experience many of these in the first outing, though those that we did experience have been fully considered this time around.

We are bringing this to Kickstarter because we want to expand the range to bring new and exciting game modes and new content to our existing customer base and new gamers. We believe that our Kickstarter is low risk and presents a great opportunity for people to play something new and fun and at low cost entry point, with an existing range that allows people to expand their Purgatory gaming experience from the off.

This expansion will improve other critical elements of the game, such as packaging, website and branding, bringing Purgatory in line with other notable brands. With much of this already in place, we consider this project and your investment very low risk.
