The Demise of Dr. Frankenstein is Live!

There’s An Angry Mob Outside With Your Name On It

From designer Mark Hanny comes a new game now of Kickstarter!

Hard to believe that 83 years ago, on November 21st, Universal Pictures brought us the classic cinematic adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. To celebrate this, Mark Hanny is proud to launch the campaign for his game The Demise of Dr. Frankenstein. A light, exciting worker placement game with varying available actions determined by dice, Demise of Dr. Frankenstein has been compared to the likes of Kingsburg, Yspahan, Firenze, and The Manhattan Project.

The earliest iterations of Demise came into being four years ago and now, with over thirty dedicated playtesters having weighed in and dozens more having experienced the game at conventions, we are thrilled with the mad creation Mark’s original brainchild has become.

Running until December 21st, this will be Mark Hanny’s seventh game campaign on Kickstarter. It is also a first for him, however, as this is the most grandiose crowdfunding project he has undertaken as he seeks to manufacture this game professionally and in high volume. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game for $42 at the standard tier and other pledge levels will include games from Mark Hanny’s previous successful campaigns. The campaign also provides an excellent bulk reward level perfect for retailers (6 copies of the game for $150).

The Game:

Eastern Europe-- a hotbed of mad science. Scientific advances have given men knowledge they do not yet fully understand and arrogance to attempt to defy the laws of nature. A group of imbalanced, but brilliant individuals race to create life and reject death. This is a grisly and often criminal undertaking. In the end, when the townsfolk come bearing torches and pitchforks, will you meet your demise in a blaze of glory, having conquered life and death? Will you be the legendary Dr. Frankenstein-- or will you be just another nutjob with a lab full of spare limbs and torsos?

In Demise of Dr. Frankenstein, you will influence conspirators (based on die rolls) in order to further your ghastly experiments. Place your limited supply of worker cubes in the Clinician Grid to represent lab work and research or on various special actions in the Curator area to represent the unusual knowledge and curiosities the village librarian secretly shares with you. Bribe the local constables the turn a blind eye on your roaming creatures, shady associates, and strange equipment you smuggle into town (Officer cards). Visit the local Undertaker to get the body parts needed to bring to life your greatest monstrous masterpiece. All the while, your faithful ally, Igor, can assist you in a variety of ways. Fun as mad science is though, it comes at a price. As you steal corpses and as your abominations harass the village, the citizenry gets increasingly ticked off at your shenanigans. So when they come for you, bearing their torches and pitchforks-- and I assure you they will-- will you prove yourself to be the greatest mad scientist around, the one and only Dr. Frankenstein, or will you be just another nutjob with a lab full of spare limbs and torsos?
