"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.

 

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

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.

      One batch of Acolytes from The Others - 7 Sins boardgame.
       
      Not used to painting tiny minis, some blemishes (shakey hands). 
       
      White is hard to paint (achieving contrast).

      A new kickstarter project from Kev White:
       
       https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hasslefriesian/artemis-20/description
       
      Don't think I shall be backing this myself as I don't do much that is bigger than 54mm.
       
      This seems to be happening off Kev's own bat and I don't think Hasslefree is involved. Whether that is a good thing or not I leave to your own judgement.

      A bit late, as there's only 21Hours left at this time, but...
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lumir-k-the-one-and-only-cooking-oil-led-lamp/x/10803452#/
       
      I'm at the 'Get 1 Give 1' which means I'm getting one of these weird lamps, and a family without electricity in Cambodia also gets one. 
       
      -----------
       
      Overview Lumir K is a cooking oil powered LED lamp that converts the thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity. ▶Make an Impact- Bring the light to the people living without electricity. ▶1 Lumir K = 100X candlelight ▶Easy to Use-Just placing the lamp over the lit wick will turn the LED light on. ▶Accessible-Olive or canola oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. ▶Instant light-No need of charging or battery ▶Efficient-Consumes the only 5ml of oil for 1 hour of light ▶10-year life span
       
      Small heat energy turns
      the 100 times brighter LED light.

      Less Consumption, Less Emission
       
       

       

      Lumir K converts the small thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity and it turns on the bright LEDs. This amazing lantern will light up where you want and it make an impact on the world where it is needed.
       
       

       
       

       
      From now,
      Cooking oil turns to the power source of your lamp.

       
      Lumir K uses cooking oil to generate electricity.
      Cooking oil is one of the cheapest and familiar ingredients as it is easily found from grocery stores in the city to tiny kiosk shops in a remote area.
      Olive, canola and sunflower oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. Without any batteries or external power supply, only with tiny flame which is as big as candle, Lumir K gives you an instant and 100 times brighter light.
       

       

       
      Lumir K is an easy, accessible and sustainable solution for those who need a light.
      With a goal to light up the world, team Lumir had a successful campaign with our first product, candle powered LED lamp.
      We promised to keep developing solutions for families in the off-grid area and finally came back with Lumir K by improving efficiency and changing fuel as cooking oil.
      Lumir K achieved CE and its core technology is patented. We are happy to share this achievement with you, and we need your support to take one step further.
      Lumir K will brighten up anywhere light needs to touch.
       


      Lumir has been resolving the light shortages and delivering the beauty of light.
      Our journey started from a small but momentous experience during the trip to India, learning that there are so many places around the world suffering from unreliable or no electricity supply.
      Among 1.2 billion who do not have access to electricity, most of them rely on candles or kerosene lamps which is dark, harmful for health and the environment. Using kerosene lamps indoors has the same effect as smoking 40 cigarettes and the cost for fuel takes up even 30% of the household's income.
       
      Instead of unreliable supply,
      Isn't it be possible to maximize the light from a candle or a kerosene lamp?
       
      That was the question that led us to invent Lumir K as an effective solution for the light shortage issue.
      In the case of kerosene lamps, only 10% of the energy from the fuel is used for illuminating because the flame itself is the direct light, and the rest, 90% of the energy is just scattered in the air as a heat. 
      However, Lumir K harnesses the wasted 90% of the heat energy to turn on the LEDs, so it is pretty economical as it provides a brighter light only with a small flame.
       
      LUMIR K can be used anytime and anywhere while solar lamps has a big weather constraints in many areas like Indonesia where the average rainy days are more than 160 days. 
       
      After our first crowdfunding campaign, we became a partner of KOICA, Korean International Cooperation Agency, and Lumir K was piloted in Indonesia.
      Lumir K provides 4.1 times brighter light than kerosene lamps, while its economic effect was also achieved with 80% lower fuel consumption compared to kerosene lamps. It also reduces carbon emissions by about 90%.
