Mantic Games is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for a sci-fi sports game called DreadBall.


The game is being (has been?) developed by the ever quirky and effervescent Jake Thornton with miniatures and components begin created by Mantic. The game is set in the same universe as their sci-fi mass combat game Warpath and features the core races from that game, the Corporation, Marauders, Verr-myn and Forge Fathers.

The Kickstarter site is lacking in details but you can pick up some specifics about the game and its development from Jake’s blog. The figures shown look excellent and from Jake’s description the game will play very different than Blood Bowl and appears to have a lot of tactic depth to it.

This looks like a very interesting game and I will be trying to get my local Blood Bowl group playing it.

Update: Frontline Gamer also has a DreadBall article.
