Nemo Rising: The Game

Captain Nemo and friends want a seat at your table for game night.

This September, NECA’s WizKids brings Nemo Rising to game stores as a cooperative adventure based on C. Courtney Joyner’s 2017 sequel to Jules Verne’s classic novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Nemo Rising: Robur the Conqueror invites one to four players to become members of a reimagined version of Nautilus’ crew — Captain Nemo, Sara Duncan, Adam Fulmer, and Ulysses S. Grant.

Each must carry out missions in order to successfully complete the requirements of one of two scenarios — The Undersea Grotto or the City in the Sky. Each scenario represents a unique location with its own geography, environment, and adventures. Players work together to accomplish the Mission Goals outlined on the game’s Mission Cards.

Nemo Rising was first released as a hardcover and audiobook. Coinciding with the board game release, a paperback edition of the book will be released this fall.
