Every now and again, something on Kickstarter absolutely explodes, such as Project Eternity or Torment: Tides of Numenera. We're watching another right now: Arcadia Quest.

Created by popular tabletop gaming website Cool Mini or Not, Arcadia Quest hit over US$70,000 of its US$50,000 funding goal from nearly 800 backers in just under an hour on Kickstarter.

The game itself, for two to four players, is described as "a lot like a World of Warcraft raid on a hapless NPC city, with Heroes working as a team, except that you're not the only Guild after the loot!" Each player has a guild of three heroes competing across a modular board to save the city and get the gold. And, of course, the game pieces — fantasy-style plastic miniatures — are all paintable.

At time of publishing, funding had just hit US$80,000, and was still rapidly rising. A copy of the game is going for a US$100 pledge — the early bird reward is long gone.

Head over to the Arcadia Quest Kickstarter page to find out more about the game's mechanics — and pledge your support.
