Dawn of Madness is a true horror experience in a board game. It is a 1-4 player story-driven cooperative game that takes place over a variable-length campaign. As a Wanderer who has been ripped from your old reality, you now find yourself in a nightmarish Otherworld surrounded by things that, while horrifically twisted, seem strangely… familiar.
The Otherworld is closing in around you, trying to consume you and devour all that makes you who you are. If you want even the slightest chance of surviving, then you must reclaim the shattered fragments of your mind. This will not be easy, though, because your past and your secrets are hopelessly entwined with sinister paranoia and feverish nightmare. Consequently, the deeper you wander into this world, the more of your life you uncover, the deeper the terror will grow. Still, you know you must. Because there is no other way to escape the Otherworld.
Set in the same universe as the breakout hit board game Deep Madness, Dawn of Madness is a completely standalone, distinctive, and terrifying gaming experience.
Dawn of Madness will be delivered in two different waves. The first wave will include the Dawn of Madness Core Box, Miniature Box, all of the Core-level stretch goals, and a portion of the Otherworld-level stretch goals (specifically, the miniatures that accompany the Core-level stretch goals). The estimated delivery for this first wave is October 2021. The second wave will include the rest of the Otherworld-level stretch goals and all of the optional buys. The estimated delivery for the second wave is June 2022.
