Boardgames in Blighty News – Press info – Theomachy on Kickstarter in 2015
During the last two editions of the SPIEL fair in Essen, as well as via e-mail and the BoardGameGeek forum, the Historcial Games Factory team was asked many times about the possibility of releasing an English edition of “Theomachy”, a card game from 2012 available so far in Polish and German. Originally published only in Poland, the game was successfully crowdfunded in Germany in 2013 through the Spieleschmiede platform.
Today HGF announced the beginning of the cooperation between the Polish company and Petersen Entertainment, which will result in releasing the English edition of the game next year. It is also intended for crowdfunding, and the Kickstarter campaign will be launched at the beginning of 2015. However, the first opportunity to playtest “Theomachie” in English (under working title “Theomachy”) is this weekend – during BGG Con in Dallas.
The design works on the game are still in progress, but the publisher announced the introduction of some novelties, among others, three completely new mythologies – the Egyptian one and two pantheons related to the Cthulhu Mythos – Great Old Ones and Outer Gods. In the design of these factions the HGF team is being helped by Sandy Petersen, the author of the legendary role-playing game “Call of Cthulhu” and the boardgame “Cthulhu Wars”.
