LOS ANGELES, CA – Within hours, the official Evil Dead 2 board game reached its goal of $70,000 on Kickstarter, and concluded with reaching over 1000% of its goal with $722,622 total funding.
Developed by Space Goat Productions, in partnership with Creative Licensing and Studiocanal, the tabletop game asks players to work together to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis (Book of the Dead) while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid being turned into evil deadites themselves!
The tile and miniature game features custom miniature figures, including the iconic hero Ash Williams, and art depicting the terrifying and iconic monsters and locales from the cult classic film.
Taylor Smith, Creative Manager of Space Goat explains, “we've been producing Evil Dead 2 comic books for the past two years that fans have loved. The board game was the obvious next step, because it allowed us to extend the world of Evil Dead 2 to a whole new audience. Furthermore, we were able to repurpose much of the art from the comic books to fill the 200+ cards featured in the game.”
The game also features numerous upgrade options, including the ability for fans to receive an exclusive variant comic book cover from Space Goat’s series “Evil Dead 2: Beyond Dead by Dawn,” and the ability for backers to have their own likeness included in the game.
