DEMOS: FIRST MARTIANS

THURSDAYS, Jan. 4, 11, 18, 25         5 – 8 pm

Built on the core of the award-winning Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island, First Martians pits players against the hostile Martian environment and a whole host of new adventures and challenges.  The immersion experience is further enhanced with an integrated app that maintains the balance and challenge throughout.  Players have the option of taking on the design as a series of separate games, in a custom campaign mode (like in Legacy games) in which each successive game builds on the last, or even an Open World mode in which they are free to roam about the Martian surface and explore for as long as they can survive.

With the help of their amazing community of DMs, players, donors, and viewers, they raised over $74,000 last year. And since 2013 they’ve raised an astounding $290,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!

                   Our players will include 1 or more sacrificial PEGA-Minions and many other                                      compassionate role-players and DMs.
