Zombicide: Invader - A Scifi game by CMoN

EDIT: This kickstarter is now Live:








"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.

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


I like your thinking defiantly the way to go ::D: will be looking at it myself depending on the price it might be back especially as it will be April

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.

      Normally I stick to Fantasy but recently I acquired 3D files for a wonderful faction of Space Woofs.
      The Jackals from Onepagerules.
      Naturally I bought them all...
      Don't worry citizen, WOOF has no plans to conquer the Galaxy...honest...
      In the welcome pack of that patreon I also got several Robot Legion Troops and I got some free Alien Hive and Eternal Dynasty minis as well.
      Combined with a "few" other scifi minis and files I have, I decided it to be time to explore the Galaxy.
      This is not my first time though.
      Here are some minis I painted in the past that fit the bill.
      Enough of that...
      On to adventures in Space!
      I present the Jackals.

      First 3D prints are now curing.
      A Jackal Assault Beast.
      Three Jackal Nomads
      A few Power Packs, Backpack/Rocket pack and an Oil Drum.
      This will make a nice start.

      Since I don't play the game I will paint what I like and make up my own stories like you're used from me.
      Official background for the Jackals:

      No time for the usual, since I need to head to work.  There are timed early birds, if you want to save a few $$.

      Came across a Kickstarter from CMON's RPG publishing arm (Didn't know they had one) for a RPG about various Fairy Folk living in an abandoned mansion.
      Not a RPG player myself, so I can't comment much on the game, but it does use special dice which seems a bit limiting:-

      There is a link to some quickstart rules on the page to have a look at though.
      My interest is in the set of minis (It is a CMON Kickstarter after all):-

      Unfortunately, I can't get the figures without also pledging for the RPG at least at the PDF level, so I've got this on remind while I ponder if the minis are worth the extra $30.

      Sod all to do with gaming, but I know we've got cat people with their own voids at home; and some of you might be into pins and need a Void of Blep of your own.
      Or.. heck, I'unno. Maybe you need void stickers or something.
