Level 7 from Privateer Press

The gates are opening for the new Level 7 game from Privateer Press. We didn't know if it was to be another miniature game, a board game, or what. But the word is out now. It's a semi-cooperative survival-horror board game. Demos were given at the Lock and Loaded event last week.

Will you work together with your fellow prisoners to endure Subterra Bravo’s endless perils, or will you use them to secure your own escape? Ultimately, your chances of survival will depend on how well you manage your greatest weapon, which is also your greatest threat: fear itself."

    Thoughts?
    Well.... I was looking forward to another gaming universe developed by Privateer Press instead of a one-off board game. But I can go with it. It is very interesting that this game type is getting alot of attention right now. Zombicide took Kickstarter by storm, and Sedition Wars looks to be doing very successful. Are there too many survival tile board games coming out?
    One thing in Level 7 that is obviously missing are miniatures. How could they think of releasing this with cardboard models? I hope that there are minis coming. What do you think?
