WAYWARD LIVES AGAIN IN UPCOMING BOARD GAME
The incredible Image Comics series Wayward recently concluded. It was a real bummer to see it go, but fortunately, IDW Games has announced an upcoming Wayward Board Game – Signature Edition. Based on the comic by Jim Zub and Steven Cummings and featuring game design by Jonathan Gilmour, the board game involves a highly thematic threat management and multiple unique and challenging scenarios. Players will be pushed to take risks and, in return, grant their characters more powerful abilities and items.
Wayward will be a cooperative board game intended for 1-5 players. Each player will take on the role of a teenager with newfound supernatural abilities. These are the next generation of supernatural creatures in Tokyo and they'll have to fight for their survival and to prevent the Weave – the hidden threads of power and destiny that guide our world – from unraveling. They threaten the old order and the creatures and spirits known as the Yokai are determined to eradicate them before they are usurped.
Jerry Bennington, IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development, says, “Being able to bring the fantastic world of Wayward to the tabletop has been a lot of fun. The art, miniatures, and game are a great way to experience the world that the comics have created.”
Jim Zub, writer of Wayward, says, “Jonathan Gilmour has put together the kind of fun and challenging game I love playing at the table with my friends. It has an intense strategic style that’s full of surprises. Win or lose, each play through is a blast to see through to the end.”
The Wayward Board Game – Signature Edition will be available to pre-order on Kickstarter in February 2019 for $70. It will feature exclusive upgraded packaging, miniatures sculpted by Ninja Division, and a bonus character with scenario. If you're attending PAX Unplugged from 11/30 – 12/2, you'll get a chance to demo the game at the IDW Games booth #3148.
