Asmodee North America is teaming up with Space Cowboys to bring us Route 666, a zombie road trip game by Martin Wallace.
Just… let all that sink in for a bit.
“In this fast-paced and morbidly kitschy game, you and your fellow players embark on a road trip going south from Chicago along America’s famous Route 66 — now infested by zombies. As you travel though a deck of adventure cards rife with dangers, you’ll battle zombie hordes, drive abandoned school buses, scavenge for gas and bullets, and explore a darkened, tainted American countryside full of shambling undead, haunted carnivals, and plumes of toxic gas. Your goal is to stay alive until you reach the safe, sandy beaches of the California coast.”
Route 666 will be an adventure style game for 1 to 4 players. It will involve bidding and resource management mechanics. The game is scheduled for release at GenCon 2016.
