Noble Armada: Lost Worlds Currently On Kickstarter

Mar 18, 2018

Holistic Design Inc. announces the launch of the Noble Armada: Lost Worlds project on Kickstarter.

Noble Armada: Lost Worlds is a real-time strategy PC title based on HDI’s Noble Armada miniatures game.

Set in the Fading Suns Universe, where the suns themselves are dying, humanity battles to revive its lost greatness – or just take what is left. The five great Royal Houses dominate human space as they battle each other for control of the greatest resource – humanity itself. In Noble Armada: Lost Worlds, players take on the role of a noble in one of the five Royal houses, vying against rival fleets and houses for control of human space. They battle pirates, barbarians, heretics and others in their quest for supremacy. Noble Armada is a game of broadsides and boarding actions, as players maneuver their ships to line up their best shots, fire off broadsides of fiery energy and then board their enemies to end the battle with desperate boarding actions. As they travel from planet to planet, making allies and building up their fleets, they also gain the experience they need to make their crews and marines truly formidable. Players can choose from a wide variety of missions involving five different houses. They can also design their own battles in the game’s Skirmish mode. There they choose what ships they and their enemies command, as well as the victory conditions. The video game version of Noble Armada takes the miniatures game and turns it into a fast-paced strategy game. It utilizes the original miniature game mechanics while taking advantage of the best features of its new digital home. “The game is wrapping up its alpha testing and along the way we realized there were several great additions for which we did not originally budget,” said Holistic Design President, Chris Wiese. ” This Kickstarter is to help fund development of a Mission Editor to be distributed along with the game, in addition to Android and iOS ports of the game. Should we raise more than the $3500 that would take, we have a number of stretch goals we would like to fund as well.”

Round Up Your Meeples and Conquer a Medieval Landscape – Asmodee Digital Releases Award-Winning Tile Game Carcassonne for PC, Mac and Android

Asmodee Digital, leaders in digital board game entertainment, today announced the Steam launch of Carcassonne, the digital version of the award-winning tile-laying board game, for PC and Mac, along with an all-new version of the game for Android mobile devices.

Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/598810/Carcassonne__Tiles__Tactics

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.asmodeedigital.carcassonne

Carcassonne presents an all new, 3D version of the classic game. Two to six players take on the roles of founders of the region as they build roads, abbeys and cities in online asynchronous multiplayer gameplay.

Simple to pick up but challenging to master, the new Carcassonne presents players with endless opportunities for tactical play. Within minutes, players will find themselves in tough situations – determining where to put their last meeple, whether to use tiles to expand the city, or to hinder their opponent. Players place only one tile each round, and have the option to place one meeple on it. Each game develops differently, full of boundless possibilities, and the quick-fire nature of the game ensures that Carcassonne always runs at a brisk pace.

Launching today on Steam for PC and Mac, Carcassonne is available at the discounted price of $9.99 for a limited time and comes complete with two popular expansions – The River and The Abbot – to further enhance in-game options.

It will be available at the discounted price of $1.99 for the first 30 days after launch and comes with the The Abbot expansion.

The game will continue to be developed with already many projects underway:

  • Additional expansions coming after launch include Inns & Cathedrals, Traders & Builders and Princesses & Dragons.

  • For all the Carcassonne pros, a Champion AI will be released for free within the next few months.

October 1, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that a new adventure is now available for purchase through the Road to Legend app! Trials of Frostgate challenges you and your fellow heroes to four distinct trials, and each trial is guaranteed to test your strength and your resolve in a different way. Unlike a campaign, which progresses through a story with every new adventure, each challenge in Trials of Frostgate can be attempted multiple times as you attempt to best your scores from previous encounters!

In the city of Frostgate, the Northern Tribes gather each winter for feasting, celebration, and their most sacred rituals. Amongst these rituals, the Trials of Frostgate stand proudest—tests of courage, skill, and strength of arms, where the proudest and bravest warriors earn tattoos of their totemic animals. Four trials await you—and only the boldest heroes can withstand them all.

As part of the Road to Legend companion app, Trials of Frostgate invites you to experience the danger, excitement, and heroism of Descent: Journeys in the Dark as a completely cooperative experience. The companion app takes over command of the monsters that you battle, leaving you and each of your friends free to become the heroes of Terrinoth.
