I was part of the first campaign and it was a good one with regular info from Dimension Games, and a decent product at the end of the day (mini quality is similar to recent CMON boardgames). It was delayed, but with most of the assets already done this should be a lot easier to estimate the timings right

BGG seems to like the game reasonably well too https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/202077/deep-madness

so if you fancy a lovecraft/body horror inspired fairly hard boardgame or just a pile of creepy monster minis this is well worth a look

Is there any truth to the comments that some of the atmospherically gloomy components (the tiles specifically) are too dark for visually challenged (old) eyes?  I would love a good solo game but ocular weariness is a chronic issue for me these days.  Your thoughts are welcome.

Thanks.

The tiles seemed all right. I mean, the art is pretty good, but I couldn't repurpose them for other games (which was really my whole goal with this one).

 

Can you elaborate? Are the tiles different in this set? (I didn't back the previous one, and want to re-purpose the tiles for RPG's)

The tiles are thick cardboard stock (not corrugated), and the print quality was pretty good. They aimed for atmosphere so yes, they're dark. The contrast is high, however, and I didn't have any trouble seeing the art in warm light. I haven't really dug into the rules (since, y'know, I recycled them...) but the tiles didn't come with much of a grid, just occasional lines suggesting zones. They also ran a little small. They're appropriately sized for the game, but not quite the right size for a tabletop RPG. 

 

The reprint should, I believe, include the same tiles. They're shown in the breakdown of each pledge level. Mine were a shade darker than what the image suggested on my various screens, but that's hard to get right as a web publisher.

I've played the first scenario a couple times now.  Died horribly, but I think that was mostly due to my own decision making rather than an issue with game design.  There is a lot to keep track of on the board, but it doesn't feel overwhelming.  And the gameplay itself is pretty straightforward.  The monsters all have their own AI card, so it flows pretty smoothly.  Should be playing with a group of friends next week, but might have to play again myself because I want to try a different approach now.  :-)
