A few months ago, we took a spin with the tabletop game The Manhattan Project. If you missed our review of this great worker placement game, you can check it out here. (Spoiler Alert: It’s great!). We also reviewed the Nations and Second Stage expansion for those interested. In short, The Manhattan Project is worth checking out if you’ve never played it.
Fans of this eurogame got a pleasant surprise yesterday morning with the launch of a new Kickstarter campaign for a digital version of The Manhattan Project. It looks like the app has been in development for a while as there are already some screen shots and game play video. However, development isn’t cheap and the Kickstarter campaign is seeking to raise $30,000 to fully fund this game (With some great looking stretch goals planned).
If your a fan of the game, then this should be a now brainier for you. A $10 pledge will get you a copy of the game (on any platform you choose), with some other options if you’d like to get early access as a beta tester. Even if you’ve never played The Manhattan Project, this could be a great way to try out a hot new eurogame.
If you’d like to back this project, you have until Monday Dec 9th to become a backer with the game scheduled to be released in March of 2014. I really hope The Manhattan Project hits its funding goal as I’d love to play it on my iPad. Not since the digital version of Pandemic was released have I been this excited for a digital version of a board game. You can also watch some early game play video below. Check it out.
