German fans in particular could hardly wait for the new crowdfunding week and the associated Kickstarter board games: With Human Punishment - The Beginning, Godot Games is launching swarm financing for its semi-cooperative board game, which is also the prequel to the Human Punishment titles that have appeared so far . 

In addition to Human Punishment: The Beginning, other board games are crowdfunding on Kickstarter, including some promising projects such as Roxley Games' post-apocalyptic work Radlands or Squatchy Games' weird visit to a restaurant a Sasquatch. The highlight of this week, however, is undoubtedly Human Punishment - The Beginning, a project in which there is no question of whether it will be successful. There's a common 48-hour goal for all backers - we're going closer to 48 minutes at this point due to the game's presence.

SPOTLIGHT: Human Punishment - The Beginning

Semi-cooperatively, Human Punishment- The Beginning is all about fighting powerful machines. The game is even compatible with its predecessor, which is at least the successor in terms of story: Human Punishment: Social Deduction 2.0.

The setting is dominated by neon colors, hardly surprising for a cyberpunk-style board game in which the classic theme "battle between man and machine" is at the center of a gameplay in which players act together, but with recourse to an exciting traitor mechanic.

Three to six players can take part in a game of the time-consuming board game, but designer Stefan from Godot Games explains that the board game can be played well and entertainingly even in a moderately attended group. And the author of the game got us in an interview more about Human Punishment - The Beginning betray.

Godot Games has set a target of 25.000 euros for the crowdfunding campaign for Human Punishment: The Beginning, which starts on January 25th.
