Back in 2015, Bright Light Media brought the blood-spattered fun of slasher movies to family game night with Mixtape Massacre, a board game that allows you to play as a slasher in the small town of Tall Oaks circa 1989. Last year, Bright Light Media released the Black Masque expansion pack, and they're going to continue expanding their killer board game this year with Mixtape Massacre: Escape From Tall Oaks!

The official Kickstarter campaign for Escape From Tall Oaks will be launched on March 6th:

"The team at Bright Light is happy to announce, Mixtape Massacre: Escape from Tall Oaks, will be launching on Kickstarter March 6, 2019.

Be sure to follow along on our different social channels as we unveil more previews as we get closer to the launch date."

In Escape From Tall Oaks, instead of playing the slashers, you will become a survivor trying to live through the night and get the hell out of Dodge (or in this case, Tall Oaks). And, if you already own Mixtape Massacre, then you're in for an extra treat, because you'll be able to attach your board to the Escape from Tall Oaks board for a Slashers vs. Survivors game!

We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, we have the previous announcement below with more information:

Previously: New Game. Same Damned Town. Mixtape Massacre is Back!

Mixtape Massacre: Escape From Tall Oaks (EFTO) is the upcoming sequel to the cult favorite board game, Mixtape Massacre, originally Kickstarted in 2015. Unlike the original where you play as slashers in an every-monster-for-themselves scenario, the sequel now puts you in the shoes of Tall Oaks residents.

EFTO is a meta-cooperative game where 2-6 players attempt to escape the maddening streets of Tall Oaks by fighting off slashers, rescuing residents, and collecting essential items all in hopes of getting the hell outta town…or die trying. Though working together at times to safeguard the town, in the end only one survivor can escape.

Players choose from 1 of 6 survivors, each with their own skill sets. Explore new locations in Tall Oaks with weapons in tow while attempting your escape - but watch your back as the town’s most infamous villains will be waiting in the shadows, ready to butcher you and your pals!

Players will go through challenges rescuing victims and friends from the insanity happening across town. Along the way, search locations for supplies and weapons to assist you in making your escape. Some of these supplies will also come in handy for completing tasks to safeguard the town.

Fan favorite Killer Scenes and Bonus Tracks are back, along with supply cards and other new mechanics. Even better, if you’re an owner of the original Mixtape Massacre, combine both games by linking up the boards, increasing your town map, and turning your next game night into a Slashers vs. Survivors Party!

Not to stray too far from the original, we’ve kept the game retro, fun, full of jokes and horror tropes, and most importantly - approachable for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Welcome back to Tall Oaks. Now get out while you can!

Mixtape Massacre: Escape from Tall Oaks hits Kickstarter Early 2019.
