Resident Evil Board Game Raised Over $ 900,000 on Kickstarter

The officially licensed Resident Evil board game has crowdfunded over $ 900,000 after a hugely successful start on Kickstarter.

Launched on October 26, the game’s campaign quickly broke the original funding goal of £ 100,000. With 15 days left on the crowdfunding drive, the target now seems to be a distant memory. As of this writing, co-op horror games have just exceeded $ 900,000 and don’t seem to be slowing down.

Resident Evil: Board Game is created by veteran desktop company Steamforged Games in partnership with Capcom. Steamforged is certainly not a stranger to this franchise, and previously worked on Resident Evil 2 & 3 board games. We also created other desktop games linked to various video game franchises such as Horizon: Zero Dawn and Dark Souls, so it looks like a project. It’s in a fairly safe hand.

In the latest pursuit of Capcom’s respected franchise, desktop creators bring players back to where the series began in their next board game, based on a 2002 remake of the original Resident Evil.

Steamforged states that players “step into the boots of STARS members, enter the sinister Spencer Mansion and reveal the horrifying truth in it.” While exploring the area, players must navigate the “find secrets and survivors” and “crawling with enemies” open worlds to ensure survival while the game’s danger level increases.

When checking out Kickstarter, fans now have two different pledge options that they can pay to receive a copy of the game at launch. Starting at £ 72, the game Bravo Pledge guarantees players a copy of the core Resident Evil board game and all its unlocked goals. More expensive options also exist in the campaign Alpha Pledge. This not only guarantees fans to access the core game and unlock goals, but also guarantees some additional extensions and exclusive add-ons.

In other relevant news, this isn’t the first time a STARS team member has received public attention these days. Fortnite at Epic Games recently added Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine to the game as part of a collaboration with Capcom to celebrate everything weird.
