Magic Meeple Games and Gamelyn Games have partnered to co-publish their highly-anticipated project, Darkrock Ventures, which has launched on KickStarter earlier today. The campaign will run for 28 days in hopes of reaching their funding and stretch goals to improve this already well-received and highly-thematic euro-style board game.
Darkrock Ventures is a worker-placement game set in deep space of the distant future; for 2-5 players, Ages 14+, and around 30-45 minutes to play, depending on the options used. The goal of the game is to mine Iron, Cobalt, and Platinum out of a massive asteroid and export it for as much money as possible before the asteroid is depleted…all while being relentlessly harassed and attacked by alien space pirates called the Therion Marauders. Darkrock Ventures was designed by Michael Eskue, whose previous work was featured on Geek & Sundry’s popular Youtube show TableTop. The game offers many different options of play with special features including the introduction of variable player abilities, for players that desire more replayability.
The game is priced at $39 USD plus shipping for the duration of the campaign, while the MSRP will be approximately $50 USD when the game reaches retail stores. Discounts on the game and shipping are available with multi-pack Pledge levels. Andrew Enriquez of The Nerd Nighters show will be hosting a Kickoff party tonight where interested players can watch or even play a game of Darkrock Ventures online.
