Mega Announcement: Posthuman Video Game

77 likes

What was that? You thought the surprises were over just because we revealed our double-whammy insert combo, ended the Tendrils In Her Mind Episode with a jaw dropper and shared videos of Gordon and Mark wrapped in cling film?  

Hah! We have another Hammer-hand of an announcement...

Posthuman: Sanctuary - the Posthuman Video Game

Yes baby, get your dose of mutant goodness in digital form! How's that for a solo mode? 

.

Like a handsome appendage that sawed itself off from its parent body, Mighty Boards actually grew out of a video game studio, called Mighty Box. The guys over at Mighty Box are the people behind our sexy KS videos, some of the illustration and 3D work that you guys have seen in our campaigns. They have been working away at an adaptation of Posthuman for the pixellated medium. The game was designed by Gordon and has elements of both the original Posthuman and Saga, but a lot of other elements that are unique to the digital medium. 

.

Posthuman Sanctuary will be hitting Steam Early Access in two weeks time.  Posthuman: Sanctuary is set in the world of Posthuman, and takes place between the events of the original Posthuman board game and Posthuman Saga. Sanctuary is a unique single-player RPG with a strong narrative focus. It’s part rogue-lite and part interactive fiction, both couched in the format of a digital board game with a few twists.  It includes turn-based combat, exploration, interactive stories and a team-management element where your followers shift their loyalty to you depending on the choices you make in relation to their characters and world-views.

During the Early Access period, players can play the Survival Mode of the game, with the Story Mode being released with the final release of the game. We'll send an update your way when the game launches on Steam.

      Any updates on the PC game, been looking for it on steam, and there really does not look like an update since 2017

      Crossing fingers they'll release for GOG...long story short, me and Steam no longer work together :P

      Will this also be coming out on the PS4?

      Awesome news about Sanctuary 😊 Backed it before and was hoping that it would get picked up again. Will keep an eye out for the release on Steam. Congratulations, Mutantkind!

      I'm actually really hoping a PS4 version might happen in the future!

      Will there be a Mac client or is it going to be PC only?

      @Bjorn: Well the great thing is - it will be out in its toddler state at least, much sooner than Posthuman Saga! Just two weeks to go!

      Very nice : D

      I will be on the lookout for that one, even if it will canibalize on my solo time with Posthuman [Saga] : D

      Holeeeeee crap, amazing!!! Mind blown

      @Erwin: Yep, check out the stretch goal list at 300K ;)

      @Joshua: Not only that, but you can lick it too! Only after a good soapy bath and a serious enamel undercoat, though.

      Yeah, if I want to buy from Steam, I will wait until they have mega sales, especially for early access games, hence, I am curious if you guys would offer us backers some form of discount :)
      Either way, that’s not the main focus anyway, thank you so much for a great campaign.

      @Guy: Got you in the under-tentacle did it?

    16. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @Paco: It won't be free for backers. We did not commission the game ourselves. If we had it would put this campaign way into the red ;). Mighty Box are a separate company and they've been working on this on and off for over two years and need to pay their bills and people.

    17. Mighty Boards 5-time creator on

      @Paco: I'll have to check with Mighty Box if it's possible to offer Steam keys as an add-on in this campaign, but it might be easier to just buy it from steam.

      What’s a video game? Can I paint it?

    19. Guy Dutrisac on

      Well that just came out of nowhere and hit the sweet spot

      Wait what? What is a double whammy insert combo?

    21. Paco Mak on

      Any chance for a backers special as addon? Or, it’s free for us? lol
