The Captain is Dead Announced

 

 

August 1, in the year of our Lord 2019 -- For the past two years, digital board game specialists, Thunderbox Entertainment, have been working on a top-secret, new project… and now they are finally ready to unveil their next, laser-fuelled release: the sci-fi, survival spectacular known throughout the galaxy as The Captain is Dead!

Those of you living on the outer rim of the cosmos might be unfamiliar with the original board game, which is like the last 10 minutes of your favorite sci-fi TV show… except that things have gone disastrously wrong, and (spoiler alert) the captain is dead.

Created in collaboration with table-top maestros, AEG and The Game Crafter, the videogame delivers all the fun of the original, cardboard experience. Players take charge of the ship’s stalwart crew, as they battle an unrelenting alien nemesis, intent on eating what little brains they have, and destroying their beloved ship. You’ll need to keep a cool head and utilise each crew member’s particular set of skills to repel boarders, keep the ship operational, and survive long enough to fix the Jump Core so you can escape to safety!

Players can expect all the tightly balanced, nail-biting strategy of the boxed game, with the immersion and flow of a fully realized virtual world. The original game’s totally unique aesthetic has been painstakingly recreated in full 3D, and you’ll feel as if you’ve been teleported right on to the board.

The Captain is Dead will be beaming down to your PC in early 2020.
