These next few months of KickStarter are going to be murder on my wallet.

Shadows of Brimstone Forbidden Fortress and the Kingdom Death: Monster reboot mainly. That's going to be $700 at least. cry

Me too. I've been saving up so as to not sink the household budget this month.

Forbidden Fortress has the exact balance between theme, gameplay that fits the theme perfectly, and cool components. I've spent so much money on ebay and retail once I got into the game. It's a world you just keep wanting to expand and return to.

KD:M is something I regretted not getting on board with the first time around. I suspect many other backers will join for the same reason.

Robert, it is a one vs many game, so in this regard is similar to The Others , Doom and other games who have an overlord.

It also features the 'town phase' seen in 'Shadows of Brimstone' where players gear up between missions.

It features a campaign mode with a very strong and deep lore (World of Smog is very rich lorewise) so you could add Mansions of Madness to this purpose.

It also have some nice gameplay mechanics like a hidden activation order and the 'resources spent to activate special powers strengthen the overlord'.

In the end, it is a very unique take on 1 vs many trying to make the experience for the overlord as pleasant as possible.

Man vs Meeple did a very nice and detailed preview that will give you a better idea of how the game looks like:
