Spearheaded by master designer Mike Selinker (Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Betrayal at House on the Hill), Apocrypha also features design work from an all-star cast including Chad Brown, Keith Richmond, Liz Spain, Elisa Teague, and Gaby Weidling. The game of modern-day apocalypse can be played both as a cooperative card game and as a card-based roleplaying game with one player acting as gamemaster (see “Mike Selinker’s ‘Apocrypha’”).
In 2018, the game will be supported by three expansion sets:
- The Flesh, featuring stories by Bruce Cordell, Jerry Holkins, Kris Straub, and Teeuwynn Woodruff.
- The Devil was created by Keith Baker, Wolfgang Baur, Erin Evans, and Kij Johnson.
Each of those expansions will include 400 new cards with 10 dividers, 4 pawns, and a storybook. MSRP is $39.95 each.
- The Hybrid Mission Pack will be a 10-card add-on. MSRP is $4.95.
In 2015, Lone Shark Games ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of Apocrypha, which attracted $333,661 in pledged support from 2,477 backers (an average of $134.70 per backer).
