Abomination brings to life the world of Mary Shelley’s immortal Frankenstein. Set in Paris, the game takes place twenty years after the events of the novel. You are one of several esteemed scientists invited to dabble in the immoral world of monster building, to continue the dark work abandoned by Victor Frankenstein. Through strategic worker placement and careful management of resources, you’ll gather raw materials from the cemeteries and morgues around the city, conduct valuable research at the Academy of Science, hire less-than-reputable associates, and toil away in your lab—all in an effort to assemble a new form of life and infuse it with a “spark of being.” Do well, and the Creature may reward you during one of his surprise visits. Do poorly, and you may come to regret not putting forth more effort! Once a player succeeds in bringing their creation to life, or after 12 rounds have elapsed, the game ends and the player with the most victory points fulfills Frankenstein’s dark legacy, for good or ill...

Warning, this is a dark and macabre game.
