The original Resident Evil, now as a board game

Without a doubt, the first Resident Evil game changed the survival horror genre in gaming back in 1996. We’ve played the original version, the remake, and soon we will be able to play it as a board game.

Capcom and Steamforged Games announced the start of a crowdfunding campaign for a board game based on the first Resident Evil. Steamforged Games have worked previously with Capcom on board games based on Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry, and Resident Evil 2 & 3.

The goal of the campaign was to pledge £100,000 (approx $137,545 US dollars). But that goal was quickly passed and by the time we published this post, it had already passed the £600,000!

You’ll be able to play as Jill, Chris, Rebecca, and Barry. Each one will have its own figure on the board, as well as the enemies.

If you wish to know more about this project, here’s the link to the Kickstarter campaign, you can also check out how will it play and more details of its release.
