The folks at Looney Labs have landed a partnership with Cartoon Network and are hitting their Fluxx franchise with a couple new additions to the brand, and today we're going to take a look at the first...
In other news, someone has designed a zombie board game. I know...shock and awe. We Are Dead is a collaborative effort between a couple of very accomplished artists Mike Morris, and Mike Collins. Morris being a 5-year veteran animator for The Simpsons, and Collins, whose accomplishments are a laundry list of Cartoon Network series. We Are Dead is a co-op play game, where players are actually not trying to survive the zombie apocalypse but you are actually inciting the apocalypse. Through co-op efforts and resource management you move through the mall infecting, and feasting, upon shoppers while trying to defeat any uprising heroes.
The game is touted as an easy-to-learn, fun romp, in a very stylized, cartoony zombie setting. The game is completed, tested, and ready to go, Never Peak Games is simply asking for funds to send it to press.
This Kickstarter is one of the less expensive ones to get into on the ground floor; if you're one of the first 100 backers, you can get a copy of the game for $30. [Update: This level is sold out, but you can still get the game for $35.] You can also—for $20—get yourself a We Are Dead t-shirt.
As always, we'd love to hear what Kickstarters you're backing, or if you're starting your own campaign, let us know!
