The Designer/Artist/Publisher trio for this game are very promising.
Are there any more details aside from the short game description?

Yep. Party game, so I am out as I have enough of those in my collection.

In fact I have enough of most games in my collection!



YMMV

Even though playing the game can be kind of hilarious sometimes, it's definitely not all there is here. I see why it can look light compared to AH or such, but I wouldn't call it a "party game"…

The story of At the Mountains of Madness is the furthest thing from a "party" I can think of. haha

It'll be interesting to see how the game plays.

Other games are present for a couple of years, have a million-dollar kickstarter, and are not even present on the hotness-list. Yeah, sure...

Seems like a joke to me. Why would iello be doing it? If so don't expect anything like Mansions. Hype wagon all aboard.

No one's asked if this is a Legacy game yet? A legacy party game could be hilarious with the right people.

It's not a party game and it's not a legacy game. My use of "party game" wa a short-hand that I realized, later, is not an apt description.

It's somewhat of a teamwork game when you have to solve simple problems in real time but you are all, in different ways, going insane.

Which makes the problems not so simple after all.

I appreciate the clarification on this, it makes the game sound a lot more interesting.

From the description, I don't gather this will be playable solo... But I'd really like to be wrong about that. Something about this mythos is very difficult to get lighter or more 'middle of the road' gamers to try, so if it doesn't have a solo component then I may never be able to bring it to the table. I'm very interested to see what you're going to do with this, but also very cautious because the theme can be downright unapproachable to those not already familiar with it.

I think that you will find this more accessible than other Cthulhu games.

Sounds good! I'm in! Will this be kickstarted? When/where can I place my order?
