Mantic Games, the makers of Dreadball, and The Topps Company are teaming up to bring Mars Attacks: The Game! to Kickstarter.
This tactical tabletop game has been designed by Jake Thornton and features a range of Mantic minatures that can be either used straight from the box, or painted to add a personal touch to the game.
Two or more players will take on the role of Martian invaders or the human resistance, and battle for control of the planet.
The Kickstarter campaign will begin on October 4th and run to November 3rd.
“Mars Attacks is a cult classic series that fans have been falling in love with generation after generation,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO.
“Its oddball blend of retro sci-fi visuals, dark humor and over-the-top violence will make for a unique tabletop experience. Our team can’t wait to bring the Martians to life in ways no one has ever seen before.”
Mars Attacks: The Game! is the first licensed property handled by Mantic Games and if its Kickstarter aim is acheived, will land on shelves across the UK in early 2014.
"Mars Attacks is a world where giant robots, mutated insects and hordes of Martian soldiers face off against Earth’s military and innocent civilians – how could you not want to see a game out of that?” says Topps’ Adam Levine.
“Mantic has quickly become one of the best in the business, and they’re the perfect team to adapt our outrageous visuals into this exciting new form.”
