So I was reading my Digg Feed at work* when I stumbled across PromoteHorror.com's post about Zero Hour, a new horror survival card game that's currently got a Kickstarter account running for funding. As a geek and a horror fan, I said to myself, "Hey, I like card games. I like horror. I like stuff like Zero Hour. How come I didn't know about this?"
Well now I know. Apparently I'm not the most "in-the-loop," if you will, but I'm super excited about Zero Hour. That's because it's a survival horror card game for 2 to 6 players about trying to make it from midnight to sunrise without getting killed. Best to play in real time, I'd imagine.
You get children cards, and you must keep them alive throughout the turns by keeping them away from the Slender Man, or the Pale One, or the White King. All of them harbor different dangers, and it's in the player's best interest to keep their children's sanity levels high.
It sounds like an amazing role-playing game, and it looks even better. Sinister card backgrounds, creepy black-and-white photographs, and eerie monster designs pair well with the already awesome game. There are four days left of the Kickstarter campaign, so you should head over and at least donate the $20 to get the original board game.
