Can you survive the night as The Great Beast moves through Bürach? There is one way to find out…

That’s right folks, we’ve been teasing this one since the start of the year and we couldn’t be more excited to announce that Ghostfire Gaming’s first ever board game, is going to be set in the world of Grim Hollow!

Coming to Gamefound in September 2023, Aberration will be ready to pour itself into the world and watch the darkness take over…

A cooperative tower defence board game of horror and survival, Aberration will see 1-4 players attempt to fight off the monsters that lurk within the shadows, to protect the people of Bürach and save their village from falling victim to the monstrosities!

Unique Gameplay Features

Shadows grow, hope flickers like a flame…

Venture into the darkness, light fires and uncover what lurks in the shadows.

Unleash your power but at what cost…

Friend and foe succumb to the insidious sway of aberration, their potential unleashed, yet every gain exacts its toll.

Behold a land tainted, where darkness seeps through every fibre…

The Great Beast corrupts everything in its path. This unfolding nightmare will twist the forest to its will.
