Imperial Publishing has funded its Red Outpost Kickstarter campaign in less than two hours. Not only that but they’ve blown through a huge number stretch goals to take their game to the next level.
Red Outpost is described as a 2-4 player, worker-placement game set on an alien communist utopian world.
The premise is that long ago, a top secret Soviet space mission set out to colonize a planet in a remote galaxy. As one of the leaders of this utopian settlement, you must guide your soviet of workers through the unfamiliar terrain expertly managing resources and carefully choosing the right worker for the right job so as not to upset the settlers.
The campaign kicked-off with a video demonstration of how to play and some delightfully retro box art and rapidly amassed an incredible following receiving seven times the required funding with 25 days of campaigning still to come.
If you want a chance to become the glorious leader, check out the campaign on Kickstarter.
