Dying Light: The Board Game has now surpassed $1,000,000 USD in funding on Kickstarter! Glass Cannon Unplugged’s latest tabletop adaption ends its run on Kickstarter on March 20, 2024, at 11 PM CT / 6 PM EDT, so sprint, vault, wall-run, and jump to back the project and receive all the exciting exclusives before it’s too late!

Back the project on Kickstarter

After smashing its initial funding goal of €50,000 in 30 minutes, the Kickstarter campaign for Dying Light: The Board Game has received over 6,200 backers, raised over €962,000 — over 1,000,000 USD — and unlocked over 28 stretch goals and exclusive items. A number of pledge bundles are already available, as well as several game-enhancing expansions, but Glass Cannon Unplugged is excited to share one more before the campaign comes to a close.

A step above the recently introduced Gamer’s Pledges, the Collector Pledge (available as of March 15) contains all the unlocked gadgets, tiers, stretch goals, and more, including the Windmill, Underground, Night Hunter, and Pilgirm’s Path expansions.

Also unveiled was the Kickstarter-exclusive add-on dice tower, created by two world-class digital sculptures. A true work of art, this add-on can be purchased separately, or as part of the Collector Pledge.

Full details can be found on the Kickstarter campaign page.

About Dying Light: The Board Game

Designed by Przemysław Zub and Bartosz Tomala, Dying Light: The Board Game is a cooperative narrative adventure game designed for 1-4 players. Set in the last city on Earth, Villedor, players must survive encounters with the zombie-like Infected as they balance the demands of the various ruling factions. Dying Light: The Board Game provides an intuitive and easy-to-learn ruleset that can adapt to dynamic playstyles and narratives. It features an original, adrenaline-fueled parkour and combat system that makes full use of an expansive city map and an impactful day and night cycle.

Dying Light: The Board Game Features:

  • Modular Game Board — Run, climb, and jump through the city of Villedor, brought to life through double-sided board tiles and easy-to-build 3D structures, interactive aids and hazards.
  • Engaging Parkour and Combat — Assume the role of a Runner and use Action Dice to elevate simple actions like running, climbing, jumping, and fighting into game-changing stunts
  • Detailed Miniatures — The Standard Edition includes 76 standees, each with a plastic base ring, while the Deluxe Version elevates this with 76 high-quality plastic miniatures crafted on a realistic scale of 32 mm. These include 4 Runners, 8 Bandits, 60 Infected, and 4 Large Infected Bosses.
  • Night and Day — Experience the duality of day and night, each offering a dramatic shift in challenges and possibilities. This system is reinforced through the use of stickers for buildings with content visible only under UV light.

Dying Light: The Board Game is being created as part of a long-term licensing partnership between Glass Cannon Unplugged and Techland. The game offers a modular experience that will be supported by several planned add-ons and expansions.
