Some thing don’t stay dead.
July 2, 2018 – The world of the perfect suburban house with 2.5 kids and a white picket fence was usurped by an unexpected threat – the dead now walk the earth! With the men quickly eliminated, once overlooked housewives and children must step up to push back this threat and reclaim their neighborhoods from this gruesome threat. This was the premise of the Dead Scare RPG launched on Kickstarter back in 2015, and Third Eye Games has signed an agreement with Exploding Rogue Studios to help complete the fulfillment of this inspiring game of women fighting the undead in a 1950s McCarthy-era America.
Created by Elsa Henry, the Kickstarter raised over $14,000 to create print and PDF versions of the game. Due to unforeseen circumstances, however, Dead Scare has so far been unable to complete fulfillment of its print copies, limiting its impact on the market and our industry. By stepping in to help complete this project, Third Eye Games is determined to not only complete fulfillment, but also collaborate with Elsa Henry to update Dead Scare based on additional feedback and playtesting to create a final revised version that will launch in the coming months.
“When I first discovered this game during the Kickstarter, I was amazed and really impressed,” says Eloy Lasanta, Owner of Third Eye Games. “Elsa did a great job of using the Apocalypse World engine to set the stage for something we haven’t seen amidst so many other standard zombie games. This one felt gritty and real in a way that really struck a chord with me and I wanted to help get Dead Scare out to market so everyone else can experience it. We’re working with Elsa to revise the game and bring it up to date, adding new material, and we’re gonna make it sing! Once we’re done, we’ll be sending out surveys via BackerKit to everyone. All backers will receive the updated game PDF and get their physical copy shipped to them right away.” Current backers and interested newcomers will be able to discover more about Dead Scare and its return from the dead over the coming months on our website (https://thirdeyegames.net) and through the Dead Scare Facebook page.
