Demigods Rising. 15 Febrero en Kickstarter.

Este atractivo y curiosos juego táctico de escaramuzas saldrá en kickstarter este 15 de febrero.
Una de las curiosidades, es que el idioma español estará presente y que los gastos de envío están incluidos en el precio de apoyo. Realmente, pocas facilidades más se pueden pedir, para un juego, visualmente atractivo.
Dentro de poco han prometido vídeos, para ver la mecánica del mismo.

Gather your heroes, challenge your friends, become the God of War! A fantasy tactical board game for 2 or 4 players.
In time of Chaos, the God of War was supreme ruler over all other gods. But Time of Peace came, and lasted so long that God of War started to lose his power. He grew weaker as the years went by and was pushed to the side by other gods. When his power faded so much that he felt that the end was near he gave the task to his four sons, the demigods, to prove themselves as best commanders in the field of battle. The one who emerge victorious should become the new God of War and bring back the former glory to their name.

Demigods Rising is a skirmish-style board game in which players take the roles of demigods, commanding armies of heroes to prove supremacy over others and ascend as the new God of War. As a demigod, a player initially has access to 20 heroes from which he can choose his army. With his choice he then faces his opponent(s) on sacred battleground.
There are different game modes regarding picking heroes (chieftain, random, mirror, free pick mode), and regarding conditions on which victory is achieved (skirmish, tactics). We bring you the game that relies heavy on tactics, that is fairly simple to learn but hard to master and that has a great replayability.

We put in a lot of effort to capture the character of each hero in its illustration and its minis. Currently, we have several minis that are in pre – production phase. We'll share them as they are completed. We are sure that the painters will love the detail captured in the models as we already got great responses from those who received prototypes of our finished models.

 - You may be the luckiest guy in the world but if your mage disposes his weak spot to a rogue, well… luck won’t matter much. Basically, there is no overpowered lineup, any team can be countered with good planning and foreseeing opponent's strategy. Take your best poker face to the table.

- Demigods Rising features 38760 possible team combinations so you won’t ever have to play with the same team. What’s even better, this number of combinations gets higher as you decide to play with 7, 8 or 9 heroes. And that’s only the base game. How’s that for replayability?

- Each and every hero we created has a comprehensive story showing him for what he really is - an individual worthy of fighting in demigod’s army! Whether you value cunning or bravery, magic or blunt force of a mace – we have you covered with a variety of first class heroes.

We have already sent several prototypes for review and we expect to have reviews done by the end of January. If you are interested in doing a review yourself feel free to contact us on nikola@demigodsrising.com

Heroes represent the finest warriors of every race. Each hero is classified into one of five classes: warriors, tanks, rogues, archers and mages. Also, there are 3 types of divine powers. Warriors and tanks uses rage to fuel their attacks and bolster defenses, rouges and archers uses focus to deliver precise blows to their enemies and finally mages uses mana to sustain their potent spells.

Every hero has its strengths and weaknesses. Utilizing first and minimizing or hiding the latter is a key to winning in a game of Demigods Rising. Some heroes work best when paired with certain others but their combinations are up to you to discover for yourself.

Each hero can be optionally be purchased as high quality resin miniature. Here is a list of available heroes that will be done in resin:

Humans had their kingdom of Erom. Lulled into security they lived quiet lives under patronage of king Rutefus. Humans worshiped the God of Life who in return blessed them with well-being and he even occasionally spoke with them through the prophet. They were easy-going people in general. Hard work during day and family dinner after sunset was all that most humans lived for. It was a time of the Peace.

Elven race was always wrapped in a veil of mystery. They lived a secluded life under the treetops of Imerin forest, never mixing with other races. The elves had no male members among them; it was that way from the first day of their existence. Their God lived among them in a form of High elder, ever young, ever beautiful. Elves lived in love and harmony with nature, and nature they lived to protect. Even in the time of Peace.

Orcs were always considered savages by other races. They were hot-tempered, quick to start a fight over anything, but beside that they were also respectful toward their elders. Hierarchy played big role in their society. Orcs worshiped Dual sex deities called Varfu and Shel who had their representatives among Orcs in forms of Overlord and Shaman. Orcs were made for war; they worked on expanding their territory and increasing their numbers, waiting for the right time to conquer the world. But it was still time of Peace.

Dwarfs spend most of their lives living in their underground kingdom called Drelif. Their skill in metalworking and tinkering could only be matched by their ability to withstand massive amounts of liquor. Dwarfs were honorable and proud race. They were ruled by King Pureiron, during whose rule dwarfs succeeded in finishing making their God, a colossal golden statue made of pure gold. Dwarfs were also good fighters and after finishing their God they were left with a lot of unused energy and with no exhaust valve, after all it was time of Peace.

Risks and challengesLearn about accountability on Kickstarter

A project like this requires great teamwork of skillful game designers, artists, sculptors, writers, and manufacturers. The miniatures still need to be mastered for plastic production and the game components need to finalized and printed.
We are working with a great game manufacturing company that has successfully delivered many other Kickstarter games.
We understand that when it comes to anything produced overseas, delays can happen, especially with shipping and customs delays. We will do everything that we can to mitigate any problems and we will keep you informed every step of the way. Communication is a key component of any Kickstarter, so we will be posting regular updates throughout the campaign and will notify you immediately if any problems arise.
