Gothic Horrors terrifies Kickstarter on March 27th

Mar 19, 2018

New expansion to the hit Maximum Apocalypse tabletop game launches on Kickstarter

Rock Manor Games is returning to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new deluxe expansion, Maximum Apocalypse: Gothic Horrors. The original Maximum Apocalypse raised over $150k. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the deluxe expansion at $29 and also offer a Kickstarter exclusive expansion, Jurassic Perils, for only $10.

The supernatural is real. Unspeakable horrors await those who venture out at night. Vampires drain the life of their victims while cultists summon strange creatures. We’re hoping that we can scrounge together enough supplies to survive without our minds snapping, but it is a heavy burden to bear.

Maximum Apocalypse: Gothic Horrors adds two new apocalyptic scenarios, Cthulhu and Vampires. Face off against life draining vampires, ghouls and werewolves in a classic monster set or try and stop a bunch of cultists from summoning Cthulu or other unspeakable Lovecraftian horrors. Each apocalypse brings with it new gameplay mechanics such as the Insanity deck of phobias or the new night/day event deck. This expansion also adds two new survivor characters, the Priest and Ronin. Each character comes with their own unique survivor deck of abilities and equipment cards. The Priest is a persistent believer in humanity who offers protection from unspeakable evils. The Ronin is a new close range combatant with dual purpose cards that change based on her combat stance.

Number of players: 1-6
Time required: 60 min
Recommended ages: 13+

Maximum Apocalypse Hits Kickstarter!

April 6th, 2017

Mike Gnade, creator of the Kickstarter hit Brass Empire: a Steampunk Deckbuilding game, is returning to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new game, Maximum Apocalypse.

Maximum Apocalypse has been in development for over 2 years, and will launch on Kickstarter with the full art and design complete. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game at $40.


In Maximum Apocalypse, civilization has already fallen. The players are survivors of the apocalypse whose mission is to survive the hostile landscape. The game map is randomly generated and different every time that you play. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to explore the map, play cards, equip weapons, scavenge for resources, draw cards or battle off monsters.

Picking a unique survivor class within the group, players must plan their strategy and work together while leaning on their survivor’s strengths in order to defeat monsters and avoid starvation. For example, the Fireman is deadly up close with his ax and can easily chop down monsters; meanwhile the stealthy Hunter is great at scouting the map and avoiding traps — but roaming monsters are gathering quickly and time is running out. If you are overwhelmed by monsters or die of starvation, the players lose. If they can find enough gas and get it back to their van to escape, they all win and live to play another scenario.
