Escape the Dark Castle Kickstarter date announced

1st June Launch Date

   Themeborne have today announced their debut game Escape the Dark Castle will launch on Kickstarter on 1st June.

Speaking about the game, Themeborne founder Thomas Pike said, ‘We set out to capture the atmosphere of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, and from there design something a group of players could share at the gaming table. Crucially though, we wanted it to be truly accessible for newcomers, even non-gamers. The result is an innovative, immersive game that anyone can play. The simple rules can be learned in 5 minutes and it lasts less than an hour.’

The castle comprises lavish A6 ‘chapter’ cards, which the group simply turn over one at a time like the pages of a book. Each card reveals a new situation and explains what must be done to get through it. As escaping prisoners working together, the group will have to make difficult choices about how to approach each encounter, using their unique character dice and items found along the way. A drunken guardsman is approaching - do you attack, or try to bribe him? A hideous creature is lurking in the shadows - will you charge in to fight it, or turn and run?

Attendees can try the game at UKGE in hall 1, booth H34, and anyone who backs the Kickstarter between 1st and 4th June will get access to the ‘early bird’ pledge for a significant discount.
