When people love a thing, they often do it passionately. Generally, that passionate love is displayed through purchases, as this is a material world. I’m not knocking it, I do it too.
Sometimes, however, those purchases aren’t direct purchases, but rather an investment in future content. This is usually manifested as Kickstarter projects, crowdsourced ideas that otherwise might not get the green light.
The Resident Evil 2 board game was massively popular on the crowdfunding platform when it was released, and now, Resident Evil 3 is getting the same treatment. Not only that, but it’s already made its goal with ease.
The campaign started on April 29th, with plans to run until May 13th at 3pm. The initial goal was $180k, a reasonable sum of money.
That goal lasted an hour before it was fulfilled. The game now sits at $400k, which means that we’re getting into stretch goal territory now.
The first stretch goal reward, a Disco Jill Valentine figure, has already been unlocked. If you back the game, you get this figure, any other stretch goals reached, and a special Kickstarter edition of the board game.
The project is still open for funding, but if you’re unsure, there’s a digital demo of the game on Tabletopia. This demo takes place in one of the many scenarios accessible in the full game, and can be played solo or with up to 3 friends.
If you’re into board games and Resident Evil, then this is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on a nice addition to your collection. Head over to the Kickstarter page to see what you can contribute!
