I'm still holding out for a few upcoming Kickstarter campaigns, but as usual, there are campaigns of interest for solo gamers that are currently active.
Nemesis has a sci-fi theme and involves surviving in a hostile, alien-infested ship. If you like survival horror games that conjure a persistent sense of dread, this might be a good one for you. One of the more interesting aspects of the game, to me, is that it's more about survival than about killing waves of aliens—and there is a noise mechanic to encourage stealth. Stealth in board games is a particular area of interest for me, so I'll be keeping an eye on this one. If you want to see the game in action, there is an extensive preview from Ant Lab Games:
2. Tiny Epic Zombies
Survival horror seems to be a common theme right now, given that another hot Kickstarter of the moment is Tiny Epic Zombies from Gamelyn Games. I've never felt the call of the "Tiny Epic" games, but if they are your thing, Tiny Epic Zombies looks pretty good. This entry into the series will see the continuation of ITEMeeples, as well as vehicles that meeples can ride. It also includes five different playstyles, including cooperative, competitive, solo, and cooperative/competitive with a zombie player. If nothing else, that's a lot of stuff in a tiny box, and for a pretty good price ($25 for the deluxe version).
That said, I still have TRULY mixed feelings about ITEMeeples:
