Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion

$19,484

           See Update #14 about Spanish and German language translations of the rules and how that will happen.

                  

You are The Lone Survivor of last year’s "Dead Run Incident," the night when the animals came back from the dead hungering for the brains of humans. Somehow you escaped the Nightmare Forest before it was overrun by the undead. After that horrifying experience, you fortified your heart and appointed yourself the investigator of the strange, wild, and unexplained in and around The City.  

Recently you saw strange lights hovering outside The City. You gathered a few trusted friends and headed back into the Nightmare Forest. There you discovered an Alien Expeditionary Force seeking to gather human specimens they can use to conquer the entire planet. You must defeat all the Aliens, without any of your friends being killed and collected, before the Aliens break out of the Forest and wipe out humanity.  

Can you can survive another journey into the Nightmare Forest?

Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion is a Cooperative game, where players must work together to cleanse the forest of Aliens before it is too late! Based on the number of characters, you will deal out a grid of Forest Cards. Each turn, every character will move around the Forest and decide which Forest Cards to flip over to potentially expose Aliens, fiendish Traps, useful Gear, or valuable Allies.  

There are four levels of cards, with higher challenges requiring that players choose whether to hope for a lucky roll or to combine their unique Abilities and Gear to improve their chances of defeating powerful foes.

To win, you and your friends must stay alive and clear the entire forest before the last turn. If any player is killed, or if the game ends before the Forest is cleared, then the Aliens overrun The City, and destroy humanity.

This is a stand-alone cooperative play style expansion of the Nightmare Forest game series. You do not need Nightmare Forest: Dead Run (everyone for themselves) to be able to play Alien Invasion.  

Alien Invasion, while cooperative, has a great SOLO-PLAYER MODE as well.

We believe so strongly in this project that we funded all the art for the game prior to Kickstarting. The game art will be complete prior the completion of the Kickstarter.  

Once the project funds we will need 2-3 weeks to make any custom character art from the "Skulder/Mully" backer levels, and the game will go immediately to manufacturing.

We like to support game stores around the world by offering the special pricing of the game to retailers during the campaign. We treat retailer backers just like other backers in that they receive their rewards before we release regular retail games into distribution.  

If you're a retailer, please contact Dave at capstern@gmail.com during the campaign for pricing information. Or back the $2 Retailer reward level and we will contact YOU!

Retailers will need to provide some documentation to validate retailer status.

SolarFlare Games contributes just over $6.00 USD towards the shipping costs for ALL backers. For backers in the United States, this covers all shipping costs.  

For backers in other countries, we apply the same $6.00 credit to all international orders to help and support our backers. We bulk ship our international orders to the UK for fulfillment from the UK. This is done to reduce the shipping costs around the world and prevent VAT costs for EU backers. This makes the international shipping as backer friendly as possible.  

The chart below shows what shipping cost (up charge) will be added when you back to cover the balance of the shipping costs. 

The first shipping up charge is listed for the Classified Files/Lone Gunman level, and the second amount is for the Special Agent level or higher (which includes the large play mat or multiple games).

 

 

                                                                                                                                    

 

 

 

Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion was created and lead designed by Dave Killingsworth and will be published under the Brave Frontier Studios/SolarFlare Games umbrella.        

There is more information available about me in the Full Bio link. I need your help because the production costs needed to bring the game to life must be paid months before the game can appear in stores. I have already paid for all the art and have already successfully delivered four other games on time, as promised.  

Thrash-Car
Dumpster Brawl!
Nightmare Forest: Dead Run
Lords of Rock

As with all Kickstarter projects, you will only be charged when we meet our funding goal. The game was fully designed and tested before launching this project. We have worked to make the production timeline as short and quick as possible, but first runs take a little longer to produce than repeat runs. Now, we need your help to pay the final production bill and save the Earth.

Risks and challenges

SolarFlare Games has worked in gaming and publishing in various capacities for many years and have the experience to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

We believe in quality above all else and have chosen to use a well-established production organization with a deep experience in game production.

Our last FOUR projects, Thrash-Car, Dumpster Brawl!, Nightmare Forest:Dead Run and Lords of Rock were successfully funded and delivered on time. When funding ends, production will immediately begin and we will provide timely updates through each stage of Nightmare Forest’s production, all the way until it hits your table.

We believe that honesty is paramount for our supporters. Our exacting standards and desire for quality and fun mean that you're guaranteed a game that looks just as good as it is fun to play. All of that, while offering many years of family fun!
