In the intricate dance of survival and strategy, the hit tabletop game Maximum Apocalypse is digitally reborn. Rock Manor Games, in collaboration with Mega Cat Studios, is excited to announce the Maximum Apocalypse Kickstarter campaign is live and fully funded. We are also revved up for the upcoming Steam release coming soon.

Initially launched via Kickstarter in 2017, Maximum Apocalypse captivated players as a 1-6 player board game, drawing heavily from its creator’s deep-rooted love for video games. The game skillfully blends roguelike, adventure, and strategic gameplay elements into an immersive tabletop format. “The transition from board game to digital format is a dream realized, merging my two passions and allowing us to explore this apocalyptic universe in new, dynamic ways,” says Mike Gnade, the game’s designer.

Maximum Apocalypse: The Video Game invites you to navigate a post-apocalyptic world filled with perils such as zombies, mutants, and catastrophic environmental events. Stepping into the shoes of post-apocalyptic survivors, players must scavenge for supplies, overcome terrifying adversaries, and survive against all odds. Maximum Apocalypse provides fresh challenges and objectives for each session, ensuring a continually engaging adventure across a variety of post-apocalyptic scenarios.

Players can choose from multiple characters, each offering unique play styles and abilities, enhancing both solo and multiplayer gameplay options. Whether playing alone or joining forces with fellow survivors locally or online, every session demands strategic planning and quick thinking.

The Kickstarter campaign not only supports the video game's development but also offers backers exclusive rewards, including a Limited Second Edition of the original board game and early access to the digital version. The Steam launch, scheduled for later this year, promises to bring the apocalyptic challenges of Maximum Apocalypse to a global audience.

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!
