About

Join the Struggle, Save the Earth or End it

Corrupted Comet: Pandemic from the Stars is the turn-based strategy board game. Thanks for stopping by to check out my project 'Corrupted Comet. If you prefer to skim through this wall of text, look out for the bold subheadings to catch the main points.

What is Corrupted Comet: Pandemic from the Stars?

Corrupted Comet: Pandemic from the Stars is a turn-based strategy game where you play as either the Irradiated Alien Life-Form or as the Human Race trying to stop the infection that is spreading from them! Some of the things that will make this game unique is the ability to travel between continents using designated airports and seaports – the Irradiated Alien Life-Form may only travel using these after the player has unlocked them by sacrificing units.

Corrupted Comet: Pandemic from the Stars is a board game where a Corrupted Comet has crashed into Earth and brought an Alien life-form along with it and a new plague that the world has never seen before. It has unique new game experiences for the players such as the Chance Cards which allows for Natural Disasters (Meteor Showers, Earthquakes, and Tsunamis) and other things like Mother of All Bombs and Anthrax Agents!

Your support matters because without it – making my dream, my game a reality won't be possible. I'm aiming at making 100 playable copies of the game and it would be amazing to see it being played by many other people around the world.

In Corrupted Comet you will receive 120 Units in total –

  • 30 Green Squares
  • 30 Green Gems
  • 30 Yellow Squares
  • 30 Yellow Gems
  • You will also receive 2 six-sided die
  • The Game Board
  • The Manual
  • 25 Chance Cards
  • 21 Cure Cards
  • 17 Plague Cards

How is it played?

A Game Round

Objective: The objective of Corrupted Comet: Pandemic from the Stars is to infect the entire world or to cure the world of the alien infection.

Setup: The Alien Infection gets the first turn and chooses a territory to start in – they start with three units and roll the die to see if they can gain another, the die number is based off the number of units already on the territory. The Human Race then chooses a starting territory in a different continent, places their base and gains a unit – the game may then begin.

Battles: Battles in this game are resolved with a roll of a die and are based off the level of the cure research – the higher the research points has the better chance the Human Race will have to win in a battle and the worse off the Alien Infection will be during battles.

Moves: The Infection gets the first turn and will have a choice to move into other neutral territories or incubate for a higher chance of infection rate in the current country they're in – this is determined based on a die roll. The Cure gains an extra unit every turn and may either fortify the spot they're in or move into neutral territories to setup outposts.

$14,000 – Better detailed Plague miniatures that aren't as dull and boring as the current ones!

$18,000 – Well-detailed Cure miniatures that aren't as dull and boring as the current ones!

$24,000 – Double-sided boards to give a new map experience to play on.

Risks and challenges

There is no doubt about it, this is my first Kickstarter. The two biggest challenges posed to this project are production and shipping. Also managing this complex process and minimizing delays are the large challenges I face in bringing Corrupted Comet: Pandemic from the Stars to market. I believe in being 100% open, honest, and transparent with my backers and will keep them up to date, informed, and I'm ready, willing, and excited to communicate and answer questions.
