The 1938 novella Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, which served as the premise for John Carpenter's The Thing, is getting its very own board game, which will also be titled Who Goes There? You can head over to Kickstarter now to help fund the game, but be quick, as the campaign ends in a few hours.

Set in an isolated Arctic research station which has been infiltrated by a hostile alien, you won't be able to trust any of your fellow players in Who Goes There?, as you'll never know who may be infected. You can watch an 87 minute gameplay video below to get an idea of what you're in for.

The Thing prequel, which was released back in 2011, was a major financial disappointment, although fans will no doubt be delighted to learn that products such as this board game are helping to keep the franchise alive and kicking.
