Ok this is a dark game, what I loved about gloom was not only it's wonderful Burton-esque artstyle or its innovative card design, no what I loved was the inventive theme. Yes what I loved was the Addams Family story where your family of misfits are looking for a way to end there life as unhappy as possible. Ok sure thats very dark, but its fiction and its so very intriguing.
Thats why the moment I saw Endangered Orphans of Condyle Cove I was instantly hooked. Not only is the art gorgeous, but the gameplay is actually quite interesting and the theme, while dark, is focused on the positive side of things.
What really sold me on this game is the designers themselves, they have posted a videos on there Kickstarter Page telling us not to buy this game, poking fun with an 'obligatory gameplay video' and more. Now obviously this is for the sake of satire, but its refreshing to see this kind of playfulness on kickstarter.
Is this game for everyone? Probably not, but for someone with maybe a little more twisted sense of humour this looks like a steal at only $25! Head over to kickstarter now to back it!
