We fade in on a familiar episode of a familiar TV series (but not THAT one, at least legally). The heroic Captain of a well-organized starship is about to save the day once again….only this time, he’s suddenly dead. If you didn’t see that coming, neither did the hapless Redshirt who has to step in his shoes and get the crew out of the mess they’re in. It’s a turn-based game that’s half strategy, half survival…can you fix everything that’s gone wrong (and while you’re at it, stop the aliens from killing you too)?
That’s the premise of The Captain Is Dead, a board game turned into a video game by Thunderbox Entertainment. The game version is nearly here, and Thunderbox is hyping it up by revealing the voice cast…the latest cast member being Elias Toufexis. You may not know the game, but you’ve no doubt heard him before. Toufexis most recently starred in Immortals – Fenyx Rising, but he’s been heard in many other games including Splinter Cell Blacklist, Far Cry Primal, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Adam Jensen in Deus Ex.
Previously, Thunderbox revealed Kevan Brighting (The Stanley Parable, Void Bastards, Portal) is also in the cast. You can add The Captain is Dead to your Steam wishlist by heading to this page. The game will be released February 2.
