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