Ok I’ve played a lot of video games based off of board games before and most of the time they are just digital versions of the original game. Asmodee Digital has just announced that they are publishing Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace which is an all new adventure RPG video game based that is based in the world of Mansions of Madness without being a direct translation of the game and I can’t be more excited.
The video game is being developed by Luckyhammers (Terraforming Mars, the digital edition and Catan Stories: Legend of the Sea Robbers) and is scheduled to hit Steam (PC/Mac) early 2019.
According to Asmodee Digital: “In Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace, players will lead a team of investigators through an eerie mansion while uncovering its dark secrets. Everything is not what it seems as the investigators encounter traps, monsters, and other Lovecraftian horrors, and descend deeper into the depths of madness. Will your team solve the mystery and make it out alive?”
“At Asmodee Digital, we’re focused on creating new digital experiences based on beloved board-game IPs. The characters, adventures and universe introduced in the Mansions of Madness board game lend themselves well to an adventure video game, and we look forward to bringing the IP to life in a new way,” said Philippe Dao, Chief Marketing Officer of Asmodee Digital. “We have a passion for board games and want to take risks to elevate the genre. Working alongside great partners like Fantasy Flight Games and Luckyhammers allows us to do that.”
Jess: It will be really exciting to have a new avenue to explore the Fantasy Flight version of Lovecraft’s world in this upcoming video game. You can learn more about Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace and add it to your Steam wishlist here!
