"Humans came to PK-L7 in search of high powered fuel. They found it with Xenium, a dark, oily compound deep below the planet’s surface. But they found something else too. The Xenos attack was brutal and unrelenting, and they’re still coming. On April 10 at 3pm EST, Zombicide: Invader is coming to Kickstarter. Follow the CMON and Guillotine Games Facebook pages for regular updates on the Survivors, Xenos, Equipment, and Environments of this interstellar battle for life, and look for our interview with the Zombicide: Invader design team later this week. Grab a weapon, barricade the doors, and prepare to be invaded."

Zombicide:Invader is a cooperative game where 1 to 6 players face Xenos, an unfathomable swarm of infected Xenos controlled by the game itself. Each player takes on the role of 1 to 6 Survivors in a sci-fi setting being overwhelmed by these Xenos. The goal is simple: choose a Mission, complete its objectives, kill as many Xenos as possible, and (most importantly) survive!

 

Survivors will fight Xenos, rescue each other, recover vital data, unveil dark secrets, and much more! Survivors can be Civilians or Soldiers, each with specialized Skills. They all play together as a team, trading Equipment, and covering each other. They use whatever weapons they can get to kill Xenos and slow the invasion. The better the weapon, the higher the body count, but the more Xenos will appear, attracted by the onslaught! Survivors must also be mindful of their location as conventional weapons work fine indoors, but the planet’s oxygen-starved surface, they’ll need to arm themselves with more specialized weaponry… Lasers, anyone?

 

Most of the time, Xenos are predictable, but there are a lot of them and they use nasty tactics not encountered in previous Zombicidegames. Only through cooperation can players achieve the Mission objectives and win."

I haven't backed a CMoN kickstarter in a awhile, but I think this one might tempt me depending on what the minis and gameplay are like.

I mean, I really don't want to get any more Zombicide, as the closet is filling up and Green Horde went directly to the shelf...but I have a feeling we'll be looking at some amazing heroes in this one. I was just thinking when GH arrived "I hope they don't go scifi next time, so I can walk away happy"

Dernit. Now I need to have a think on it.

Updated the first post with a bit more info.

 

I stopped collecting Zombicide games after the original Zombicide, Prison Outbreak, and Toxic City Mall, so I kinda feel that I'm about due for another round.

 

Plus I've long been looking for a good scifi crawler.

I've Mantics Star Saga game but I'm thinking this will be quite a different experience.

Sigh, I'll have to watch this one as well.  I was thinking of a mock zcide game with bones Grey's and Bathalian's.  But this might prove a bit more thought out than mine.

While I do think that zombicide is a bit overdone, with enough nice miniatures, I would be onboard. The zombicide games are pretty fun for casual gaming with some family or friends, though.

I'll probably be in on this one, unless I can convince a friend to get it instead.  I think he should.

Not interested in the game....let's be honest Zombicide has been done to death. Interested in then "not" hero's, and the other components..

As someone who only backed the first two Zombicide kickstarters, I'm not sick to death of them yet.

I was hoping for another fantasy Zombicide with vampires... and maybe werewolves, like Underworld.

 

Space could be cool. We are starting a Starfinder game soon, and do have our Starwars game in rotation, but the teasers of the art aren't really doing it for me. I do think in general the sculpts are usually better than the art anyway so I will see what they show when this goes live.

 

As others have said, the alien monster things don't really fit with the Zombie theme, but just like Green Horde, I am probably only interested in the heroes anyway.

      Some friends are doing this, under their Infinite Dimensions Games, though I'm not involved. The Kickstarter will take place in March and is for digital files for 3D print. If I remember correctly there are no physical rewards. While people should hold off until the details of the crowdfund are released, my understanding is that the core set is done, any stretch goals will pay for the labour of doing the design/sculpting of those items only, so the core set would be ready as soon as funding period is over. 
      They have a Facebook and Instagram and more for lots of previews (but I'm not linking because I'm not sure what on those sites will break forum rules), and if anyone is attending BreakoutCon this year in Toronto, they will be there displaying.

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!
