Deadly Premonition: The Board Game smashes Kickstarter funding goal in first day
Last week, Rising Star Games announced Deadly Premonition: The Board Game with a cryptic teaser trailer. Today the game’s Kickstarter campaign went live. Funny enough, today also happens to be the day the game was funded – with plenty of money to spare.
In less than 24 hours after launching the funding campaign for the card-based board game inspired by the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC cult classic from Hidetaka “Swery65” Suehiro and Access Games, Rising Star Games has raked in over $55,000 in contributions, surpassing the funding goal of $50,000. With 29 days to go, it’s hard not to imagine the game hitting its numerous stretch goals, one of which, which grants backers 2x the Bonus Action Cards, was unlocked at the $55,000 mark. Other stretch goals new weather conditions, unique art for paired cards, and a new agent character from Swery himself.
Here’s a rundown of the game courtesy of Rising Star Games:
“In Deadly Premonition: The Board Game you and your fellow detectives must take on the task of protecting the innocent, incriminating the guilty and work out who might not be who they say they are. With a hidden killer amongst the detectives, the race is on to identify a suspect as an accomplice in order track down the true killer.”
