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.”
