Nemesis is a new Kickstarter Project from designer Adam Kwapiński, Awaken Realms (This War of Mine), and Rebel Games (Dream Home). In Nemesis, players take on highly asymmetric roles on board a starship, knowing that an alien presence is on board. Straight out of the SciFi survival horror genre, 1-5 players need to work together to explore the starship for resources, and escape before they are found by the aliens, or the ship launches into hyperspace killing everyone on board.
Each character type (Captain, Scout, Soldier, Pilot, Scientist and Mechanic) has individual strengths and weaknesses which complement each other, but players also have hidden goals, making it difficult to fully trust the other players. Just to make it more difficult, the aliens will not only react to the noise you make on the ship, but will evolve into more fearsome forms as time goes on. Nemesis will ship with options to play as a semi-cooperative or fully cooperative game, with the added feature to have a player control the intruders.
The Kickstarter Campaign for Nemesis continues through February 7, and the game is expected to deliver in September 2018.
