“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.”

Moonshiners of the Apocalypse was created by 2fat2fly games. They are a passionate company who loves board games. Their goal is to plan and develop high quality, engaging titles again and again. Moonshiners was their first game to be created and released. They are currently campaigning for their second game Trouble in Templetown on Kickstarter.  

They launched their Moonshiners of the Apocalypse project on Kickstarter on July 24, 2018 and were fully funded within the first hour- and also had unlocked 3 stretch goals. Within the first 24 hours they had surpassed 7 stretch goals. Their campaign for Moonshiners hit 100K in the first 48 hours.  The team revealed a new solo mode and also offered the game in English and Spanish. They finished up their campaign on August 23, 2018 at 500% funded at $144,548.

In Moonshiners of the Apocalypse players take on the role of being a local hero. The game is set in Shanty Town where players raise buildings and produce moonshine. They will have to fight off hordes of disgruntled Drunkards that are roaming the town at night and looking for trouble. Players will have to spend their actions to fight them off of their property. At the end of the game only one player will get to leave Shanty Town in a hot air balloon.

Each of the 7 game rounds has night and day. “During the day you spend action points to make the most out of the possible actions: Explore, Scavange, Trade, construct, and Challenge. During the night the drunkards are on the prowl, looking for your buildings. Whenever they find one your survivors are scared away. The player with the most resources at the end of the game is the winner. To find out more about this game or to view their Kickstarter campaign please visit the links below.
