Boss Monster to gra karciana inspirowana klasycznymi grami wideo z klimatyczną grafiką pixel art. Gracz staje przed prawdziwym wyzwaniem – musi wcielić się w rolę czarnego charakteru, potężnego bossa, zbudować podziemia, zwabić do nich poszukiwaczy przygód… a potem wybić ich co do jednego!

Twórcy gry – bracia Chris i Johnny O’Neal – zbierali fundusze na publikację gry za pomocą crowdfundingowej platformy Kickstarter. Mieli nadzieję uzbierać 12 tysięcy dolarów, obawiali się jednak, że kwota może okazać się zbyt wysoka. Nieoczekiwanie w ciągu 30 dni udało im się zebrać zawrotną sumę 215 tysięcy dolarów. Był to pierwszy sygnał, że Boss Monster może spotkać się z dużym zainteresowaniem fanów retro gier.

Pixel Art

Od czasu amerykańskiej premiery w lipcu 2013 roku, gra cieszy się rekordowym powodzeniem. Sprzedano już niemal 30 tys. egzemplarzy Boss Monstera. Bracia O’Neal, zachęceni sukcesem, rozpoczęli prace nad kolejną częścią. Powstała też aplikacja Boss Monstera na urządzenia mobilne.

Stacje telewizyjne rywalizują

Na platformie Kickstarter wystartowała nowa kampania od wydawnictwa Formal Ferret Games. The Networks opowiada o starciach stacji telewizyjnych, autorem jest Gil Hova. Warto zajrzeć choćby dla specyficznych ilustracji.

The Networks is a tabletop strategy game from the designer of Bad Medicine, Battle Merchants, and Prolix, in which the players are all running competing television networks. You’ll start from humble beginnings to amass the best-possible prime-time lineup and a solid archive of reruns. The game runs 60-90 minutes, and is for 1-5 players.

The challenge of the game is that your shows will require stars and ads. But some stars perform better on certain kinds of shows, and some ads perform better in certain time slots. You’ll be making all sorts of juicy, tricky decisions as you guide your TV network to the top!

N30N City RUMBLE

W sklepach pojawi się ju najnowszy tytuł od Booyah Games czyli N30N City RUMBLE.

n20_hundreddays-cover_front_

Hundred Days 20

Jack Gill’sTolentino 20 focuses on battle of 2 and 3 May 1815 which occurred in central Italy during the period of the „Hundred Days” of Napoleon’s brief restoration to the French throne. Murat’s early gains were soon forfeit against the two advancing Austrian corps, but these two corps become separated by the Apennine Mountains. Like Napoleon’s Waterloo campaign, Murat hoped to defeat each corps in turn before they could reunite. One player commands the Neapolitan army under King Joachim Murat; the other player commands the Austrian army under Feldmarschall-Leutnant Freidrich Baron Bianchi.

Waterloo 20, 3rd Edition from Joseph Miranda is a game based on the Waterloo campaign of 15-18 June 1815. One player commands the French army, taking the role of the returning Emperor Napoleon. The other player assumes both the roles of Wellington for the Anglo-Dutch forces, and Blücher for the Prussian forces, respectively.

Two months after returning to France, Napoleon had an army of 280,000 men and was mobilizing half as many again for the next two months, but he was set upon by Allied coalition armies of nearly 1,000,000 soldiers who were preparing to move against France. The British (110,000 men) and Prussians (120,000 men) were closest, in Belgium, and Napoleon struck first before their numbers could be combined against him. With speed and surprise, he invaded Belgium with fully 125,000 men in a bid to defeat each of these armies in turn before they could unite.


Artana Games na 2016 rok

Building on the revolutionary Legacy-style games, the Echo System captures and translates player experiences from individual game sessions in one game, enabling these experiences to echo forward into other games of the same series. The Echo System allows players to bring their beloved nations, tribes, characters, and other game elements developed over play sessions in the first game of a series into subsequent series games. The epic narrative and story arc created is evocative of a roleplaying game within the package and mechanics of a modern tabletop Euro game. The result is an unparalleled persistent and immersive tabletop experience.

“With the Echo System, players build history, persistence, and meaning into their play,” said Artana creative director, Dirk Knemeyer. “Within one box, one purchase, there are two levels of engagement: each single game session you play has things going on and can be won. But, based on those various game sessions, the world within that box also changes and builds persistently toward even grander goals and outcomes. Finally, on top of that, via the Echo System, the world you build in that game, the actions you took, the characters you created, will translate uniquely and directly into the next boxed game in the series. The result is an unparalleled degree of immersion and consequence.”

Knemeyer is teaming up with IronWall Games president Rob Daviau, the designer of Risk Legacy™, to co-design the Chronicles Series™, – the first game series using the Echo System. Allowing players to write their own history in their own world, the first game in the series, Chronicles: Origins™, starts with formation of the earliest tribes. Players each represent a tribal leader, working out the values, possessions, and structure of their tribe. Then, after the tribes are formed, they will compete with one another in an environment reminiscent of prehistoric civilizations.

“The Chronicles Series will tell your story of your civilization,” Daviau said. “The first game starts with players forming their own nascent cultures and civilizations that will build during the game. This will be pretty neat on its own but then, with the Echo System, the story will continue with the second game in the series, and the third, and so on. You will watch civilizations rise and fall over thousands of years and a variety of games. It’s unlike anything you’ve played before.”

Chronicles: Origins will come to Kickstarter and be available for pre-order in February 2016. The North American debut will be at Gen Con 2016, while the worldwide release will be at SPIEL 2016 in Essen, Germany. . People interested in staying up-to-date on the Chronicles Series can sign up for the Artana newsletter at http://www.artana.com/chronicles.
