2014 Kickstarter Game Update Week 24

Games I Viewed:

The Captain Is Dead
Status: Funded

This cooperative game, published by print-on-demand service The Game Crafter, simulates a spaceship under attack by aliens. Players act as the crew members and must work together to get the engines on-line to escape. It sounds interesting, like Pandemic with a more appealing (to me) theme, I just can't stand the art. (There are a couple other games also offered as part of the campaign, but I wasn't particularly drawn to either of them.)

Status: 82% funded

In this set collection game, players use cards depicting various machine parts to build exotic devices. It has both solitaire and multiplayer variants. While I think it's a nice idea that the game is playable solo, it doesn't really have a hook that would convince me to buy it.
