It took just 18 minutes for the board game adaption of Deep Rock Galactic to be fully funded on Kickstarter. After Borderlands, Stardew Valley, and Fallout, Deep Rock Galactic has become the next popular video game to get the board game treatment. Cooperative gameplay is available on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 versions of Deep Rock Galactic.
Players can select from a variety of classes in the game, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Gold, Morkite, and Nitra can be found in the mines, where the players must travel to acquire upgrades, accomplish objectives, and call in supply drops. Mining for Morkite and surviving waves of opponents are the major objectives of this game gameplay. Players can give their dwarves unique Perk Points and upgrade them at Deep Rock Galactic’s KPI Terminal throughout the game. On February 10th, Deep Rock Galactic launched its Kickstarter campaign with a $227,019 (converted from €200,000) funding goal.
Currently, the project has raised $1,855,847 from 12,842 backers, with 18 days left till its completion. At this point, only one stretch goal remains to be fulfilled. Many parts of the board game will appeal to Deep Rock Galactic enthusiasts; for example, a beer cup event marker, similar to the mugs available at the Abyss Bar, is one of the Kickstarter exclusives. Miniatures of Molly and Bosco, two of Deep Rock Galactic’s most trusted mining companions, were also unlocked as part of the campaign’s stretch objectives. It was developed by Mood Publishing, the publisher of Deep Rock Galactic.
As far as I know, the firm is based in Denmark and has already produced five other games, but this will be the first time they produce a board game inspired by a video game. Players in the Deep Rock Galactic board game will flip tiles to see where they’re headed and what they’re up against when they get there. Tiles with adversaries, minerals, or stalagmites will be found on some of the maps.
Drilling, grappling hooks, and platform building are among the dwarves’ most commonly used skills. Each glyphid has its own unique abilities and the size difference between a dwarf Minifigure and an Oppressor Minifigure is astounding. Kickstarter appears to be the best approach to see board game adaptations of video games come to fruition. Deep Rock Galactic and Resident Evil are just two of the many board games that have been successfully financed through Kickstarter.
Players no longer have to connect to a computer or console to play their favourite games, thanks to the fascinating new medium of board games. Fans may now spread their passion for Rock and Stone to people who aren’t interested in video games thanks to the board game version. Deep Rock Galactic – The Board Game will be available in December 2022, according to the current timeline.
