Pandasaurus Games dropped some news today about two new things happening for 2019. First of that is a new hire in the form of Jon Gilmour who will be the head of Game Development for any games being designed within Pandasaurus. Given that Jon Gilmour was one of the designers behind two of their big hits, Wasteland Express Delivery Service and Dinosaur Island, you can expect any new games coming from Pandasaurus to be that much more polished. Speaking of new games, that brings us to the next announcement from Pandasaurus Games.
Coming in June 2019 will be a new game called Dead Man’s Cabal, all about resurrecting yourself a group of friends so that you can throw a party and have actual guests. You see, you are playing as a Necromancer at the top of his game, and having mastered all 9 dimensions of space time there is nothing that is out of reach for you. Nothing, except maybe making some friends as this pursuit has deemed you creepy to everyone, everywhere. But who needs them, you can resurrect yourself a group a friends and throw an awesome party, that will show them!
Dead Man’s Cabal is an action selection game where you will choose two actions each round, one that you will perform privately by yourself, and one you perform with the whole group. This adds an extra level of strategy to the game because not only do you need to accomplish your goals, you don’t want to be helping others accomplish theirs. You will be using these actions to collect resources in the form of bones and crystal skulls, and then using those to bring back some fun people to party with. Whoever throws the best party will win, although it’s not mentioned how that will be determined. One aspect of the game that people will enjoy is that all the bones and skulls in the game will be 3D pieces and so it will help level up the experience.
Be on the lookout for more information as it comes out, but you won’t see it on store shelves for several more months until at least June of 2019.
