Next week, Cryptozoic Entertainment will fulfill Kickstarter project backer rewards for last year’s The Doom That Came to Atlantic City.
In 2012, publisher The Forking Path began the Kickstarter project with a $35,000 goal and in June 2012 the project was successfully backed at $122,874. Over the next thirteen months, backers received a decline in communication from the publisher. In July 2013 the project was cancelled by Forking Path and no rewards had been delivered. By the end of the month, Cryptozoic Entertainment reached out to the game’s designer, Keith Baker and Cryptozoic became the new publisher. Without any of the kickstarter money, their first priority was to ensure that all project backers received their copy of the game.
On March 26, Cryptozoic will ship the game to all project backers. On April 2 the game will be released to everyone else.
The Doom That Came to Atlantic City is a roll and move board game based on H.P. Lovecraft’s universe. Players are each Great Old Ones that have been locked up for some time. As each player travels around the board, they compete with each other doing as much destruction as possible in their own Cthulhu way.
