“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.”

The Terrors of London was created by Kolossal games as part of a smaller box games release called Kolossal Mikro. Kolossal Games is a very active and popular game company and has released many other titles including Western Legends, Imperius, Keep, Consuption, Mezo, and many more. Their companies vision is to "be a large publisher with a passionate team of people to who love their jobs making amazing diverse accessible , inclusive games and to have a direct relationship” with their customers.

The release of The Terrors of London on Kickstarter was quite a success. Within the first day Kolossal games had not only met their funding goal but had also smashed through 9 of their stretch goals. They were able to add relic cards, monsters in each faction, elite monsters, and Charon the overlord just on the first day. Kolossal Games was at Gen Con during the release of the game and invited people to stop by and see a play through of the game. The campaign continued to climb as more and more stretch goals were added.  On day four they were able to add thicker cards to the mix for a higher quality deck. Within less than a month Kolossal Games was able to raise $118,219 for the release of The Terrors of London.

Terrors of London is a competitive deck-builder with a Victorian horror theme. Each player will assume the role of an Overlord, each with a unique ability and two unique influence cards. Throughout the game players will add monsters from four different factions (Beasts, Mortals, Spirits, and Undead) to their deck, all of which can form hordes for powerful combos. Players will also procure marvelous relics, which they may immediately use for their unique abilities. The first player to reduce their opponent's life to zero wins the game and claims the night.”

Currency is scarce in the game and can effect it by creating tension. Money allows players to buy more expensive monsters which are more deadly. Every single card that is in the deck is useful on numerous levels. The decks that are built can result in very powerful combinations and the timing and combination of card play are important.
