Machina Arcana


Woo! Saturday! Woo! Even more woo than Friday! Woo! All the woo!

So, being Saturday, it means it's time for a Review Roundup. So, without further ado, let's get to those reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

Today we have: Machina Arcana, Dark Domains, Guild Master, Bad Maps, Root, Pyramid of Pengqueen, Simulation Theory, Maki Stack, Maiden's Quest, Hannibal & Hamilcar, Drop It, and Space Marine Adventures.

The folks over at Adreama Games have launched their Kickstarter for Machina Arcana. It's a cooperative steampunk horror game that pits players against a strange environment filled with all manner of creepy monsters. Survival is key, but even if you get to the end, there's a final challenge that awaits you all.

It's not just Saturday... It's long-weekend Saturday. Short of full-on "Vacation Saturday," this is the best kind of Saturday. Just time to do aaaaall the things. What, exactly?... I've not relaly figured that out yet. But I'm sure it'll end up being something... or it'll be nothing, and that's just fine, too. But, before I get to maybe doing something or nothing, I need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Machina Arcana 2nd Edition, Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Carthago, Dungeon Draft, Ticket to Ride: First Journey, Agra, Ruthless, Blitz Bowl, Lost Cities: Rivals, Root, Clank! The Mummy's Curse, Thieves Den, and The Edge: Downfall.

As we tend to do after Friday, we are now deposited here on Saturday. That means all day getting the chance to do some gaming. It also means we have our Review Roundup.
So without further ado...

Mage Company is over 3x funded for Machina Arcana over on Kickstarter and they're looking for more. They're hoping that showing off their premium map tiles and adding in some add-ons will help.

From the announcement:

We are happy to announce that the final preparations are in place.
The Kickstarter for Machina Arcana will launch on November 19th at 10:00 (UTC-5).

In Machina Arcana, players take on the role of explorers who are investigating an ancient subterranean complex of unknown origin. They face monsters from H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos in a steampunk setting. The adventurers collect equipment, interact and utilize their environment, fight monsters, and immerse themselves in the rich narrative elements.

The complete story is broken down into different scenarios that represent a self-contained game. All of these scenarios contain chapters, each with its own narration and specifics. The objective of the game is to progress through the tale and face the endgame at the finale of each scenario.
