Space Goat Productions, the company behind Evil Dead 2: The Board Game, has announced that it is turning its attention to James Cameron’s 1984 action sci-fi classic The Terminator for its next offering.
“We’re bringing 1984 back,” said Space Goat Productions president Shon Bury. “The only movie we care about is the original. We love retro. We want to explore the beginning, “Which is why for this game, we’re focusing on what hardcore Terminator fans love about the original movie.”
“I’m very excited to be consulting with the creative team at Space Goat to bring The Terminator board game to life!” added William Wisher, one of the screenwriters on the original movie, who will serve as story consultant on the board game. “I’ve missed my old friends Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, and the T-800. It will be fun to spend time with them again!”
The Terminator: The Official Board Game is an asymmetrical strategy game played across two boards – one in 1984 and one in 2029. One player takes control of all the forces of the machines: Hunter Killer flying machines, Terminator endoskeletons , and new robots based on the classic 80s aesthetic. The rest of the players take the role of the human resistance, struggling against the impossible odds of the machine uprising.
A Kickstarter for The Terminator: The Official Board Game is set to launch in February 2017.
