cowboys

The Captain is Dead: Lockdown is the latest episode in the Captain is Dead co-op adventure game that finds you and up to 6 other crew mates battling aliens and scrambling to keep your star ship functioning.

Even without the help of the late Captain, the crew was able to escape the alien attack in our last episode! However, the hasty repairs to the jump core did not hold, and now the crew finds themselves locked in an alien prison! Now the crew must use all their skills to hack into the alien prison’s systems, while staying hidden and avoiding alien patrols…

Also coming from AEG is a new Smash Up set titled, Oops You Did It Again.

Smash Up has turned the asylum over to the inmates yet again! After the success of It’s Your Fault, we decided to let the fans choose the factions that would make up the latest set of Smash Up, and they went for some powerful choices! A huge field was whittled down to the top four, and here they are: Cowboys call out opposing minions for shootouts, Samurai face their noble end in battle to bring glory to their player, Ancient Egyptians bury secrets deep in the sands, while the Vikings… well they just take other people’s stuff!

It looks like the fans nailed it this time with some of the best genres from pop culture represented in one expansion box.

Keep an eye out for The Captain is Dead: Lockdown in August and Smash Up: Oops You Did It Again in early September.
