Scotland Rising up on Kickstarter
Worthington Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for Scotland Rising. They’ve made over their goal already, so it’s on to stretch goals for 32 days.
From the campaign:
Our project honors the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.
And with the Scottish Independence vote coming in September, will history repeat itself by pen rather than sword? Our project gives everyone some level on which to recognize Bannockburn’s significance.
The game, Scotland Rising is a sharp fight that highlights the tactics of medieval battles on a crowded battlefield. Knights are powerful and hard to bring down. Pikemen are best in massed formation. Archers have ranged fire but must be protected. Ax men are vicious in a close fight. King Robert the Bruce and King Edward II lead their armies. Victory is old fashion medieval style, inflict damage on your opponent and relieve the castle siege.
The simplicity of the game allows the casual gamer to learn and play a strategic military history game quickly.
