Maximum Apocalypse Unleashes Digital Chaos On Kickstarter Today

[Pittsburgh, PA June 4th, 2024] - In a world on the brink of collapse, where survival is the only currency, players will soon embark on a harrowing journey through the ravaged landscape of Maximum Apocalypse: The Video Game. Rock Manor Games and Mega Cat Studios are thrilled to announce the Kickstarter and Steam launch of the video game adaptation of the incredibly popular tabletop experience.

Maximum Apocalypse: The Video Game thrusts players into a post-apocalyptic world teeming with threats, from zombies and mutants to rampaging monsters and environmental catastrophes. With the clock ticking and resources dwindling, players must navigate a perilous landscape, scavenge for supplies, and confront nightmarish foes to ensure their survival.

“The entire Maximum Apocalypse series started with the original 1-6 player board game getting funded on Kickstarter back in 2017. Ironically enough, the board game was heavily inspired by my lifelong passion for video games; combining elements of roguelikes, adventure, and strategy games all together into a tabletop experience. The list of video game and movie influences is way too extensive to get into, but needless to say, I was thrilled when given the opportunity to partner with a developer to bring the board game to the digital realm.” - Mike Gnade (Designer)

Key features of Maximum Apocalypse: The Video Game include:

  • Fresh Gameplay Every Session: Each mission brings new challenges and objectives, keeping the apocalypse exciting.
  • Unique Scenarios: Battle your way through diverse post-apocalyptic landscapes, each presenting a different struggle for survival.
  • Choose Your Survivor: Select from a roster of seasoned survivors, each with their own playstyle and strengths.
  • Explore, Equip, and Conquer: Scavenge the wasteland for resources, craft weapons, and fight off monstrous threats.
  • Single or Multiplayer: Brave the apocalypse solo or team up with friends locally or online!

The Kickstarter campaign for Maximum Apocalypse: The Video Game offers backers the opportunity to secure exclusive rewards, including a Limited Second Edition of the original board game as well as exclusive early access to the game itself. Meanwhile, the Steam release is scheduled for later this year and will allow players worldwide to embark on their own harrowing journeys.
