    Object of the Game

    In Backpack, you and your friends take on the role of lost hikers and the ranger trying to bring them home to safety!

    The hikers will try to survive long enough to be rescued by crafting items, leaving signals, and foraging for resources and water. The rangers will venture out to collect signals, resupply their depleted resources, and return the hiker to the ranger station!

    If the ranger is able to locate the hikers by collecting enough signals and then bring them back to the ranger station alive, you win!

    If you decide to sit down and give it a playthrough, it would be wonderful if you’d consider recording a screencast of your game so that we could watch your experience and hear your feedback in the context of your game!

    We’ve been recording all our early playtests with friends and it’s been such an incredible tool to look back on for reference.

    I can’t commit to playtesting at the moment, but this looks fantastic & I wanted to share my excitement. I’m often looking for approachable experiences to entice family to play, and coops tend to go over well at my house. I’ll keep an eye on it and hope to jump in to support in the future!
