Hellboy: The Board Game coming 2019
From Mantic Games, designed by James M. Hewitt of Needy Cat games, Hellboy: the Board Game is currently in production. After a resoundingly successful Kickstarter campaign ended at £1,454,343 earlier this summer, design and development on the game has ramped up, with frequent play testing open to the public in the UK (home of Mantic/Needy Cat, but not exactly Hellboy). The campaign seems to have generated some unexpected game components, including Igor Bromhead, Iron Shoes, and the “El Diablo” Turkey from Hellboy in Mexico, as well as some expected and fan favorite characters like Rodger the Homunculus, The Lobster, and Baba Yaga. Currently, it looks like miniature production is nearly ready, but the game rules are still being defined.
Later this year, Mignolaverse.com will feature an interview with James about the sate of the game.
