“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.”

Terror Below was created by Renegade Games. “Renegade was founded in 2014 in San Diego, CA by industry veteran Scott Gaeta. Scott's over 20 years of experience enabled Renegade to gain a foothold immediately, releasing award-winning products and igniting a new era of casual games.” Renegade games has been able to come out with some very successful games, some of which are: Clank, Raiders, Power Rangers, Overlight, Kids on Bikes, and more.

Renegade games released Terror Below on Kickstarter on February 5, 2019. On day one of their campaign they were able to meet their goal and then start working on the stretch goals. Renegade released some terror below profile pics on social media that users could put replace their profile picture with to help spread the word about their game. In their updates they released little bits of the storyline of the game here and there to get the backers excited. Man vs Meeple previewed their game on that first starting day. By February 27, they were able to reach a goal of  $153,995 for the funding of their game.

The story line behind Terror Below is :“Lately, there have been strange goings on in the wide open spaces of the Nevada desert. A few black trucks just hurtlin’ in and out of town. About that time the rumblin’ started. But it weren’t no earthquake. No, it was them Worms burrowing through the sands. Long story short, those government men over at Area Fifty-somethin’ want us to grab them Worm Eggs, or kill a few of them nasty buggers somehow. Said they pay well. Real well. If we don’t die trying’. Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert.

In the game “The faster you move, the more vibrations you make, attracting the attention of the vicious W.O.R.M.s underground. Navigate the difficult terrain to collect valuable W.O.R.M. Eggs and deliver them to locations around town to claim bounties. If you’re feeling lucky, collect items and weapons to go hunt ‘em.” To start the game, players will play a vehicle card and resolve that played card. The next step is to draw back up to 3 cards and then the worms attack. If enough cards have been played on a worm then it will attack on the last known location.
