He's been in graphic novels, video games, and film, and now Hellboy is headed to the tabletop. Mantic Games, who has a pretty steady track record of entertaining tabletop games is teaming up with Dark Horse Comics for a co-operative game that sounds like it could be fun. Admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of co-op games on tabletop as it always feels like one or two people telling the rest what to do, but the branding on this one has me at least willing to give it a chance, provided its available at Gen Con this year. The Kickstarter is due to go live in April, and I don't see this one going unfunded, so feel free to rest on those donations and I'll be sure to seek it out in August if it's at the convention! Check out the details of the press release below:
The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
