Ares Games & Gremlin Project Announce Sword & Sorcery Board Game Kickstarter

July 29, 2015 by deltagamegirl22

Sword & Sorcery is just one of the many cool things we will be talking to Ares Games about at Gen Con in a couple days. This will be an epic-fantasy cooperative board game from Ares Games and Gremlin Project, where one to five players fight together against the forces of evil, controlled by the game system itself.

Each player will control one or more heroes who are essentially legendary characters brought back to life by powerful sorcery. Weakened by their resurrection, they grow stronger during their story-driven quests. By acquiring soul points during missions, the heroes’ souls regenerate, restoring their legendary status with multiple powers, magic and soul weapons, and powerful artifacts.

The game features an advanced AI system for monsters, a high degree of character customization, and multiple tactical options during battles. So, yes, this is another crawler style board game- but take a look a what’s in store for the nature of the miniatures…

Outstanding! These minis are set to be in the neighborhood of 32mm and if the level of detail in this render carries through, these will be gorgeous minis!

Follow us at Gen Con and we’ll see what else Ares can tell us about this Kickstarter, scheduled to drop in September.
