Hi there, I’m Mike Gnade, and I’m the designer and publisher of Maximum Apocalypse. Wasted Wilds is the next part in our long-running series and has been designed as a great entry point for new players while still offering old players plenty of new mechanics and characters to sink their teeth into.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, Maximum Apocalypse is a roguelike survival adventure for 1-6 players. Each survivor has a unique deck of cards and abilities and you explore a map of tiles and try to accomplish your mission before you are killed by monsters or starve to death.
Rachel and Heinze have done an excellent job highlighting that this new game features two distinct campaigns, the Frozen Wilds and the Scorched Wasteland. Each of these campaigns has a narrative that ties all the missions together. The Frozen Wilds is especially designed to walk new players through all the rules and mechanics of the game as new concepts are slowly introduced each mission.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, I invite and hope that you’ll check out our Kickstarter campaign quickly since it’s ending June 11th:

At least in the scorched wasteland I can feel my toes.
