Processing: A Game of Serving Humanity

$15,614

266

In Processing, you’re everyday people forced into "employment" by alien invaders. Your job? Sort out Earth’s remaining survivors.

Cast votes on the moving conveyor belt. Determine who gets freed, who gets probed “For Science!” and who gets processed. Make your alien bosses happier than the other players, and you're free! Fail, and you are meat.

Complication: only hipsters survived the invasion, and the aliens do not distinguish between cows and humans.

3-6 Players  |  30 Min  |  Ages 14+

Processing is a social game. The straightforward game mechanics allow quick play and reward player interaction. When it's your turn, place a vote token on an empty space.  After all players have voted six times, the round ends.

Though the rules are easy, the strategy is deep. Each player serves a secret set of unique alien overlords. Every vote you cast benefits some aliens and angers others. You must score a different overlord at the end of each round.

After three rounds, the player who angered their overlords the most is kibble (eliminated.) The surviving player who helped their aliens most wins their freedom.

Embrace human guile, use social deduction and create a consensus. Make democracy serve you:

  • Cheer: “Meat! Meat! Meat!”
  • Barter: “I’d gladly pay you next turn for a hipster burger today.”
  • Plead: “Please please please.”

Do whatever it takes to influence the voting, and maybe you will survive Processing!

Risks and challenges

As with any board game project, there is a risk the timeline might slip. We have set a delivery date that allows for the unforeseen. Our last Kickstarter shipped three months early. Our focus is to create the best possible version of the game and experience for our backers.

If any delays should occur, we promise to be transparent with the reasons and our solutions. We will update the timeline as the project progresses.
