Playing Nemesis will take you into the heart of sci-fi survival horror in all its terror. A soldier fires blindly down a corridor, trying to stop the alien advance. A scientist races to find a solution in his makeshift lab. A traitor steals the last escape pod in the very last moment. Intruders you meet on the ship are not only reacting to the noise you make but also evolve as the time goes by. The longer the game takes, the stronger they become. During the game, you control one of the crew members with a unique set of skills, personal deck of cards, and individual starting equipment. These heroes cover all your basic SF horror needs. For example, the scientist is great with computers and research, but will have a hard time in combat. The soldier, on the other hand...
Nemesis is a semi-cooperative game in which you and your crewmates must survive on a ship infested with hostile organisms. To win the game, you have to complete one of the two objectives dealt to you at the start of the game and get back to Earth in one piece. You will find many obstacles on your way: swarms of Intruders (the name given to the alien organisms by the ship AI), the poor physical condition of the ship, agendas held by your fellow players, and sometimes just cruel fate.
The gameplay of Nemesis is designed to be full of climactic moments which, hopefully, you will find rewarding even when your best plans are ruined and your character meets a terrible fate.
This is a great game for those who love a long gameplay (our first play was about 3 hours). It's fun and stressful (in a good way!) with lots of twists and turns that can either benefit you and your team or ruin your plans entirely. As the game progresses, the ship AI will keep throwing in a bunch of obstacles to throw you off your plans, so it always keeps you on edge!
It's a great semi co-op game with a little bit of backstabbing in the mix, along with of elements of sci-fi horror adventure.
I found out about nemesis awhile ago, but missed out on the Kickstarter. I have been waiting and waiting for this game! I have it now and I was so worth it! The quality of the pieces and cards are top notch and the game mechanics are great. Since getting it, we have played it through twice but are yet to win 😂 now the wait begins so see if we will get the expansions 😁😁
