Maximum Apocalypse

While we haven't had the opportunity yet to play this game, it has successfully grabbed our attention with it's polished artwork and cooperative survival gameplay. If you're unfamiliar with it, don't let the term "rogelike" scare you off — in this game, you'll simply be exploring a map and either collecting items or fighting off monsters that you encounter. Check out the trailer and description below for more details.

From the publisher:

In Maximum Apocalypse, civilization has already fallen. The players are survivors of the apocalypse whose mission is to survive the hostile landscape. The game map is randomly generated and different every time that you play. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to explore the map, play cards, equip weapons, scavenge for resources, draw cards or battle off monsters.

Picking a unique survivor class within the group, players must plan their strategy and work together while leaning on their survivor’s strengths in order to defeat monsters and avoid starvation. For example, the Fireman is deadly up close with his ax and can easily chop down monsters; meanwhile the stealthy Hunter is great at scouting the map and avoiding traps — but roaming monsters are gathering quickly and time is running out. If you are overwhelmed by monsters or die of starvation, the players lose. If they can find enough gas and get it back to their van to escape, they all win and live to play another scenario.
