    It could be a good game, but they were asking for too much.

    Sad that this has no chance of making it:

    It's a X-COM like Turn-Based Strategy game combined with a "Who's the Werewolf/Killer" gameplay, and for some reason they started with the Multiplayer portion and are now trying to crowdfund a SinglePlayer campaign. The Multiplayer version where you can play together with/against other players in 6-player matches (where some people are the Monster and other players are trying to discover who they are and kill them or rescue civilians) was available for free on Steam last weekend and from what I've played even the gameplay seems somewhat solid, if not a bit limited.

    Art and direction though is definitely top notch:

    • A visual style inspired by ’60s fantasy and comic books. All assets are hand drawn.
    • Unique sound-processing technology with real degraded film to evoke that special retrofuturistic vibe.
    • A story campaign set in the world of I’m Not a Monster. It's just what players have been clamoring for!
    • The tangled story of first contact and the secret behind the destruction of the spaceliner Albatross, which the authorities have been covering up for years.
    [​IMG]
    • More than 10 unique and interesting characters. They aren’t all what they seem, and they aren’t all interested in being saved – and we’re not just talking about the monsters.
    • Around 20 unique locations ranging from secret compartments in the huge spaceliner, to open space, to the surface of a mysterious planet.
    • Over 10 hours of gameplay packed with paranoia, mistrust and desperate attempts to escape the doomed liner.

    First Contact tells the story of the very first interaction between humankind and extraterrestrial monsters, and uncovers the secret of the destruction of the spaceliner Albatross, which the authorities have been covering up for years.

    Players should expect treachery and scheming, a cast full of colorful characters with intertwining stories, and the shocking truth behind the reason for the Kaa’raxian attacks.

    But none of it will be what you expect; we want to turn these genre clichés on their heads.

    I'm not a Monster: First Contact (alfa)
    [​IMG]
    • We successfully made and released two games. So, we know what we do.
    • We have a Publisher who is also responsible for keeping Kickstarter promises.
    • I’m not a Monster: First Contact - Will use the technologies of the existing I’m Not a Monster project so we will be able to fulfill our main promise and release the project until the end of 2019.
    I’m Not a Monster is a turn-based multiplayer strategy game with randomly assigned roles. We’ve fashioned an atmosphere of mistrust and deception by combining the social elements of board games like Mafia and Werewolf with classic turn-based gameplay.

    We’re also huge fans of John Carpenter’s The Thing, as well as the trappings of the original Star Trek. We worked hard to recreate the retro-futuristic style of the ’60s – and judging by the feedback, we succeeded.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    We’ve received many suggestions from our players since the launch of I’m Not a Monster. Nearly everyone has asked us to create a captivating single-player campaign based on the same gameplay.

    [​IMG]
    In truth (and remember, we write nothing but the truth on Kickstarter), we’d already given this some thought when we started working on the original I’m Not a Monster multiplayer mode, and had even commenced working on it. We had a huge rough draft of the script – which kept growing and growing – as well as a pile of sketches and prototypes.

    [​IMG]
    The feedback and suggestions from our fans prompted us to rethink our plans.

    [​IMG]
    We want to use Kickstarter to speed up our work on I’m Not a Monster: First Contact as much as possible so we can release it in late 2019 – if not earlier!

    [​IMG]
    In essence, First Contact is a full-fledged single-player mode that will be available to every owner of the original I’m Not a Monster FOR FREE.

    Was all hyped up and ready to throw money until I saw the price of the GMG and PHB. Holy shit.

    Edit: collectors edition of the GMG and PHB
