I am a big fan of Aliens: This Time Its War and when I saw this as another game of similar design on the horizon I was really excited.

Any news of playtesting or release coming up soon?

(now only if you could be talked into a similar game based on the Abominable Dr. Phibes!! zombie )

Many thanks for your interest, Jared.

The game's coming along nicely. Not as fast as I'd like, though, because too many real-world distractions keep bombarding me.

I will try to upload a picture or two of cards next week. Stay tuned.

Jaret, tell me what is so interesting about Dr. Phibes. Are the films or books good?

Ditto.

Hey, Mark - if you're drawing from the Hammer back catalogue you could always include the Twins of Evil:



Seriously though, you've clearly got a keen eye for game design, you should think about developing some coop games. It's what all the cool kids are doing these days.

What else you got on the horizon? Evil Dead? Reanimator? Hellraiser? American Werewolf?

I will look at Twins of Evil, thanks. I recently poured over The Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire for card ideas for this game.

As to co-op games: my upcoming The Thing game is primarily a co-op game, that also happens to play interestingly with two. It's not a foregone conclusion that anybody else around the table is a Thing - that's what makes it so interesting, the dynamic between players.

Yeah, been following the progress of that with great interest, looking forward to some more updates...

We want Fantomas!
But not the comedy trilogy with Luis de Funes, but rather something serious and "retro" like silent series from 1913-1914! If I had the skills, I would made it by myself...

The only film you mention here that I considered is American Werewolf. However, I've already rolled up my sleeves and am at work on a "real" boardgame project based on a book I adore - and, yes, the author is fully onboard (I am sworn to secrecy).

You might be pleased to hear that I have cast my net over these two for the game.

No word yet. I've had to go back to the drawing board on Dracula, due to the game design being a little too similar in places to one I've just sold.

The new game has retained a lot of elements and themic wrinkles, obviously, but the game will play a lot differently than how I originally envisaged. I've spent a lot of time on Dracula recently, actually.
