Second batch of previews coming your way! Today we want to focus specifically on Gamefound as more and more campaigns are being announced for the platform.
Chronicles of Drunagor: Age of Darkness Apocalypse
Chronicles of Drunagor, one of our favourite campaigns (and games) from 2019, is back! This time it will be funded through Gamefound. Apart from the original boxes, fans will be able to get a new expansion that happens to be quite huge and is packed to the brim with fresh content.
The original game puts a creative twist on the dungeon crawler genre. It’s designed for up to 5 players and for solo play. The areas that you and your party will explore is 3D and features both higher and lower sections. Some of them are locked behind cardboard doors which can be opened and unfolded to learn about hidden treasures, enemies in the area and story bits.
The newest expansion adds a whopping 16 adventures to the base game including new terrains, challenges and mechanics. You can play them in any order you want or tackle them as a campaign. All scenarios feature new maps, new sets of doors and plenty of other components to warrant an exciting adventure for all players. And that’s not all. Authors plan to create another expansion during the campaign with the help of backers, who will also get it for free.
Despite the huge move towards 3D video games, the 2D platformer genre still gets plenty of titles almost every week. Many generations of gamers were brought up on games like Super Mario or Sonic. These classics were later followed by modern indie games like Shovel Knight, the Ori series and many, many more. Still, despite being such a fun genre, there are barely any board games trying to copy gameplay concepts from platformers. Sure, they’re often dexterity based but so are many other video games that were successfully turned into tabletop versions despite that.
Awaken Realms Lite is making an attempt to finally bring the platformer genre to our tables. The game called “Platformer” is designed for 2 to 4 players. Each of them controls one character and keeps on developing it RPG style. This includes gaining experience, collecting gold, discovering treasures and killing all monsters in sight. Your rivals aren’t asleep and, like you, keep on exploring the platform filled maze to become the richest and most successful hero in the land.
Maps that you traverse are made of tiles and height plays an important role. You have to jump, climb and can even throw enemies or friends off the platforms to kill them off or at least slow them down.
Lucky Duck’s latest project mixes two mythologies that usually aren’t presented together unless you count the recent God of War video game. The action takes place in the ancient times where the norse pantheon has decided to leave their destroyed lands and attempts to settle on Greek islands.
Divinus was designed for 2 to 4 players. Each of you takes on the role of a demigod and competes with others while exploring the ancient lands, looking for precious artifacts, performic heroic feats and keep on permanently affecting the world that surrounds you. Interestingly, to reflect those changes, Divinus uses some mechanics known well from legacy games. You have one goal: impress the gods and as a result: become one of them.
The game merges popular mechanics like tile placement with innovations such as a dedicated mobile app that adds lots of story and immersion to the setting. The campaign consists of 12 scenarios each locked in a box with its own tasks, cards, stickers and much more unique content.
