Box cover

Taking place 20 years after the events in Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Abomination: The Heir of Frankenstein is a game of competitive monster creation for 2-4 players. Each player takes on the role of a scientist racing to construct a viable living being to satisfy the mad obsession of their mysterious benefactor. Strategic placement of assistants across the city of Paris allows you to research scientific findings, charge your Leyden jars and scavenge the local cemeteries and morgues for materials needed to perfect your craft.

Plaid Hat Games reveals next Adventure Book Game

Stuffed Fables was the first Adventure Book games designed by Jerry Hawthorne (Mice & Mystics) and a big success for Plaid Hat Games. Now Plaid Hat Games has revealed the next game using the Adventure Book system: Comanauts is a much more mature story compared to Stuffed Fables.

Comanauts is the second installment in the Adventure Book system. This exciting game builds on the mechanics first introduced in Stuffed Fables, providing a new experience for more mature players. Race against time to revive Dr. Strobal by exploring his tormented mind. As players work together to uncover the secrets of the doctor’s subconscious, they will follow his inner child across eleven different Comazones. There they will attempt to locate and overcome the Inner Demon that holds Dr. Strobal hostage. Assume the role of 22 unique avatars as you explore the dangers and secrets of each world locked inside the doctor’s dream. Can you free Dr. Strobal from his own mind before it’s too late?

The game has a planned release date of December, hopefully, we can get the details for the UK release soon and add it to our pre-orders.
