Marc André, the man behind hit board game Splendor, is coming to Kickstarter on 7th July with an ambitious new project, Soul Raiders. One For All is going to be bringing this one-to-four player cooperative game to the tabletop alongside some amazing artists.

Get Notified Of Kickstarter Launch

Soul Raiders puts you in the boots of powerful warrior mages who are seeking to protect the world of Kivros and explore its mysteries. Designed like a book, the game is divided into chapters or game sessions which run at around one or two hours per adventure. Each chapter focuses on a specific setting where you'll complete quests, collect knowledge and increase in power.

Each of these settings is composed of a set of tiles that you'll explore with your heroes. Each player acts simultaneously meaning that there will be no breaks in the action. As you explore you'll uncover more of the narrative, fight deadly foes and either work together or explore solo. Choose what's best for each situation!

Whilst you can go off on your own, Soul Raiders is a cooperative experience and you all share a common health pool. Whenever a player takes damage, it affects everyone, so you'll need to do what's best for the group as you quest.

Time is also running out and a threat tracker continues to tick up during gameplay. If you're not careful you could find yourself fighting enemies that are too powerful for you to conquer! There is no real "set path" towards victory either and you are rewarded for spending your time thinking about the right course of action that works for you.

Interestingly, even if you do fail a quest you can choose to continue on and take a setback as you move on with the story. In that way, the game keeps up the pace, even in failure. I can see some perfectionists wanting to make sure they complete everything though!

Even with the strong narrative focus, One For All has said that the game features a lot of replay value. The proof will be in the pudding on that front for sure. I am very impressed with how it looks at the moment though, especially with the artwork from renowned artists Guillaume Tavernier (De Architectura) and Magali Villeneuve (Magic The Gathering). There are many more artists in the mix too lending their skills to the project.
