Cranio Creations, the publisher of Horse Fever, has a new game in the works for release in September 2010. Here's a setting of the game play from the publisher:
For the last four years, a medical team led by doctor Antonio Merz has been working on the spaceship SELVA to find the cure for Bellavita's disease, a brain-degenerative illness that has been killing people on Earth by the millions. In the last few weeks, research had begun showing positive results thorough the implantation of alien spores in the cerebral cortex of a selected number of guinea pigs.
On the morning of July 26th, chief medical attendant Fabrizio Miraggio was put in quarantine following an incident with one of the experimental animals. Security personnel had to forcefully block him while he was trying to devour Bibsy-332, an experimental monkey carrying the spores.
On July 28th, all communication with the spaceship SELVA ceased.
Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space, a game of strategy, logic and interpretation, is set on a spaceship where an alien plague has been transforming humans into horrendous monsters. The remaining human crew is trying to save their lives and leave the heavily damaged spaceship – but aliens are lurking in the blackout, hungry for human flesh. You'll have to guess other players' positions, fake your identity, follow the clues left by opponents, and above all learn the behavior of the perfect predator and the perfect prey.
The game comes in a 20 x 20 x 5 cm box in complete black or white with an exclusive illustration by Giulia Ghigini printed in slick UV-transparent paint. The box comes wrapped with a black or white paper label with the title of the game in either English, German, French or Italian. A 20 x 20 cm removable poster with the presentation of game's characteristics and contents will be applied to the back of the box. Each box contains:
* 8 Character cards exclusive to each edition * 6 Escape Hatch cards * 25 Dangerous Sector cards * 12 Item cards, two of them being exclusive to each edition * 4 Explanation cards in English, German, French and Italian * 30 double-sided Player Files with two different maps, exclusive to each edition * 1 Game manual and Rules-editor manual with special modes exclusive to each edition
In case it wasn't clear from the content list above, E.F.T.A.I.O.S. will be available in two editions: "Black" and "White." Each edition has different artwork on the box and includes two exclusive maps, eight exclusive characters (with exclusive properties available in the rules editor), two exclusive items, and an exclusive set of game-modes. The two editions can be combined, allowing up to sixteen players to participate in the game.
The game comes with basic rules for beginners and complete rules for advanced players. On top of that, a rules-editor is included with more than a hundred specific rules that can be combined in thousands of unique game modes. Game modes built with the editor can differ in winning conidtions, introduce a point-based system, or even change the basic dynamics of the game.
The game will come with full online support, including a powerful and intuitive map editor that lets players create, print and share game maps; a digital rules-editor to create and share new game-modes online; and a community website with new maps and modes designed by the authors, a selection of content created by the fans, and an online forum to discuss the game and its editing tools.
