Based on the cult classic 2010 video game, Deadly Premonition: The Board Game is set to bring players into a dark, mysterious world where they can’t trust friend or foe, with the game having already smashed expectations with its crowdfunding project.

In an update on the board game’s Kickstarter project, Deadly Premonition: The Board Game has successfully surpassed its crowdfunding goal of $50,000 USD with over 1,360 backers and 28 days still left to go in the game’s project window. As of this writing, the game is currently at over $85,000 in pledges from Kickstarter users.

Specifically, an update on the Kickstarter page revealed that the game was successfully funded just 8 hours and 14 minutes into the project’s debut, with the game’s team expressing that “our thanks go out to everyone that has become a part of this project with us. You have shown the world that Deadly Premonition is still a much loved IP and has lots more to give.”

Aside from the board game’s successful funding, nearly half of the currently-announced stretch goals for the project have been fulfilled, such as additional Bonus Action cards, new Weather Condition cards, and new, unique artwork for “Paired Cards,” while other goals still up for grabs include Agent Bio Cards, Guide Cards, and a new Agent Character.

Deadly Premonition: The Board Game adapts the gameplay and imagery from the original 2010 video game from creator Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro and is expected to arrive by the end of 2017 – for a closer look inside the game, you can click here and head over to the Kickstarter project.
