Check out a game play preview on the latest podcast of Sorry Man, I Farted. (Warning: NSFW language)

Alien Entity is meant to be played multiple times. Players are passed cards face down to determine who is playing as a human or an alien.The humans win if the satellite array is built or the alien gets shot. The alien wins if it passes out infection cards to all of the humans.After each game ends, points are calculated and another game starts with a new random person as the Alien.

Each player draws cards from a central pile and takes turns playing and passing cards. Choose wisely because you will only be able to play one card per turn and equipment such as body armor only lasts until your next turn.You may pass cards face down to other players to either help them or hurt their progress. If you are a human you may want to pass parts of the satellite array to another human. If you are an alien you can pass infection cards to other players to get them on your side.

Games usually last between five and ten minutes. After each game points are given depending on the outcome of the game. The cards are then re-shuffled and a new alien player is secretly chosen. You can play until a player amasses 7 points or you can just play for fun indefinitely.

    We are adding some stretch goals in the form of a special card that will ship with the game. These individual cards can be added to the base game to stir things up a bit. 
  • $1200 The Satchel Charge - Things aren't going well for you? Start blowing things up. (UNLOCKED!)
  • $1400 The Secret Document - Steal points from other players. (UNLOCKED!) 
  • $1600 The Flamethrower - To satisfy all of the pyromaniacs out there.  (UNLOCKED!)

Drawn in traditional then digitally colored, the prequel comic gives you a chance to explore the alien planet with the science team.

 Written by sci-fi horror enthusiast Matt Lanza and drawn by Todd Ulrich. Experience the paranoia as things start going wrong in the isolation of space!
