Kickstarter News 5/10/14 – If I had the extra cash I would look at…
Unusually, there are 4 Euro-friendly game projects on Kickstarter that have caught my interest…
Dead Drop from Crash Games
This looks like another fun game from Crash Games with a a refreshing theme so definitely worth a punt.
Throughout the ages, the pursuit for knowledge has been a driving force. Those with a thirst for truth have been known to thrust themselves upon the path the leads to enlightenment. Many travelers have given their lives to obtain the kind of information that wields the power to create and to destroy; to protect and to betray; to share and to obscure.
In Dead Drop, players race to discover the unknown. By sharing and selling secrets players will gain the knowledge needed to go after a piece of secret information that will unlock all that they have been searching for.
Dead Drop is a game that involves elements of memory, deduction, and crafty maneuvering. As secret agents working for different organizations, players scour the globe seeking information that will help them find the location of a hidden explosive device. Agents must trade information and sell secrets in order to learn the location of the device and grab it before it falls into the hands of another agency!
Rocket Race: A Steampunk Rocket Building Card Game from Triple Ace Games
This looks like good fun!
Leagues of Adventure Rocket Race is a fast-paced non-collectible card game of Victorian Scientific Research, Groundbreaking Engineering, Financial Acumen, Heroic Endeavor, and a Dash of Luck for 2-6 players.
It is based in the world of Leagues of Adventure (LOA), a hugely successful steampunk role-playing game (RPG) of the same name published by Triple Ace Games. We have taken all the flavor of LOA, distilled it, and injected it into Rocket Race! Although based on LOA, Rocket Race is a standalone game, so you do not need to know anything about the world of LOA or the RPG to play Rocket Race!
Elemental Blast 2nd Edition from Gregory Hingle
Long Ago… Elemental Sorcerers vied for power in an ancient realm. You take on the role of one of the last of these sorcerers as you strive to be the first to master one of the 7 elements. During the game players try to be the first to collect a set of five of any one element. Use the elements of fire, lightning, darkness, ice, and wind to disrupt your opponents plans or use water, earth, wood, and light to get you the element cards you need for victory.
Meteor from Mayday Games
I do like real-time games and this one only takes 5 minutes!
In five minutes a meteor storm will impact earth, unless you can work together to blast the meteors into oblivion! Work co-operatively, pooling resources and launching rockets to obliterate the impending threat, or cockroaches will inherit the planet.
