Alone by Horrible Games Unboxing

Today I Unconventionally unbox Alone by Horrible Games. Funny, I am totally going in blind with this game. This game is one player versus all which is what drew me into checking this out. and I don’t own any of those yet. I also don’t own many games that player over 90 minutes–so this will be fun.

Below, I reveal the insides of Alone. This is m first time with mini’s so you will most likely tell, I was not expecting what I ran into.

What is it

 

Alone is a sci-fi survival horror / dungeon crawler game that will pit a single, stranded hero against 1-3 evil masterminds who will do their best to stop the hero from completing a quest to discover the truth and save his companions.

The Evil players always have the full map of the scenario in front of them, hidden behind a huge screen. They manage all the events happening during the game, and try to stop the Hero from completing his objectives.

The Hero can only see the Sector of the map he is in, and from there he will have to explore the map. All kind of horrors may be hiding in the darkness, so he will have to be cautious. At the end of each round, the portions of the map he explored will be removed from the table: only the Sector he is in will stay visible… the Hero will have to put his memory to test, if he doesn’t want to get lost!

The story of the game will be unfolded through several scenarios, each one divided into several chapters. Each chapter has an objective for the Hero to complete, while the Evil players will have to stop him (or try to fulfill a different objective of their own). The outcome of each chapter will influence the gameplay of the subsequent one: each scenario is conceived with a branching storyline that can adapt to the actions of the players: if the Hero completes his goals, his life will be easier in the next chapter… but that is also true for the Evil players!
