Ben from Darwin Games has filmed a demo game of Rise of the Occulites for our delectation… why not check it out and see what you think.
so, monstermunch crisps brought out a wargame system? Not impressed by this at all.
Awwww… they’re so cute ! I haven’t listened to a single sentence from this guy, I was just looking at the teensy weensy occulites !
Ha! Monster Munch totally!! Its like a bunch of old skool TV kids tropes have been left to evolve on a lost continent. (Michael Bentine / Flumps etc) Loving the vision of this world of elemental beings, especially the subtle Southern hemisphere flavours, pretty fresh take imo. The ccg/fist full o dice combat mash up seems a little arbitrary but until I’ve played it I reserve judgement; either way there are some nice & fun narrative touches in the cards (trip, snatch etc). The miniatures are great, nothing grimdark but c’mon, DnD Flumph anyone? Would be great as a servitor race of Beholders or something, also possible fodder for Super Dungeon Explore. Hats off to these guys for coming correct with a fresh and fantastic fantasy!!! Good Work!!
They are cute aren’t they Romain
Thanks acidcat – I’ve tried very hard to make it a unique game in Dawn. I’m glad you picked up on the southern hemisphere nods as well. I think when you see the game play out, it won’t seem arbitrary. It is more of a blend of boardgame and miniatures game where your choices matter. If you’re interested in reading a bit of the background or keeping up with the news, check out http://www.riseoftheocculites.wordpress.com
The game looks interesting but the mini’s are what caught my eye. Love the look of them as they are not the usual human/ork/undead-metal-deamon-thing that every other games seems to have.
Cannot wait to see the other two races!
