Plaid Hat Games’ new title Dead of Winter is available for pre-order.



It puts 2-5 players together in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity are either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game.



It’s the first in a planned series of “meta-cooperative” (their phrase) games in a series titled Crossroads. So WTF is a meta-cooperative game?


Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition—but for each individual player to achieve victory, they must also complete their personal secret objective.


Sounds pretty dope to me!

The game is co-designed by Issac Vega, the mind behind City of Remnants, which is chock full of interesting mechanics. Added bonus: one of the artists is Look at the Moon fave John Ariosa.

You can pre-order to get some promo goodies and a vote on what the next game in the series will be from Plaid Hat’s store.
