Literature fans, solo-gamers, and combinations of the two should take notice. Nemo’s War: Second Edition is on Kickstarter, and has already more than doubled its goal with twenty-five days left. Nemo’s War is a theme-dripping solo adventure game based on Jules Verne’s sci-fi classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This 2nd edition completely overhauls the 2009 title and features new artwork from Ian O’Toole (The Gallerist).
Nemo’s War places you in the titular role of the captain of the Nautilus, an electric-powered submarine. You pilot your vessel around the board battling ships and sea-beasts and attempting to accomplish an array of objectives you choose at the outset of your adventure. Victory conditions and difficulty are variable, making Nemo’s War a replayable solo experience. The game was designed by Chris Taylor (Astra Titanus) and will be published by Victory Point games.
