Resident Evil 3 The Board Game Kickstarter Launches At Same Time
Tomorrow, the Resident Evil 3: The Board Game will go live on Kickstarter, and when it does players can give it a go online if they want to test it out beforehand.
To do so, players will have to go on the Tabletopia website and play it. If you want to get a sneak peak of it now to see how looks and plays, then Steamforged Games' YouTube Channel will have the first live playthrough at 4PM BST.
The game itself can be played solo or with up to four people. It's by the same developers who created Resident Evil 2: The Board Game, which has a pretty decent overall score of 7.6/10 on BoardGameGeek.
If you're wondering whether or not if Resident Evil 3: The Board Game will be sufficiently backed, the prior game received 7583 Backers and over $800,000 worth of funding, which is pretty good. The third game isn't even launched yet and it has close to 10,000 followers, so that's definitely a good sign of things to come.
I've never been a Resident Evil fan per say, but I've always enjoyed playing board games. Classic Resident Evil was always a very tense and almost laborious affair as players carefully managed their inventory and kept themselves alive one step at a time. That's not to say I have over $100 needed to back this board game, but I can definitely see how and why there's an audience for this type of thing, especially if it even comes close to capturing the same atmosphere as the original games. It looks like Resident Evil 2: The Board Game did it, so let's hope Resident Evil 3: The Board Game does it too.
