Well, it would seem as though we’re surrounded. There’s a seemingly endless army of demons outside the tower and all of them want to come in. We don’t want them to come in because demons never wipe their feet and we just got new carpeting. So it’s up to the four of us to defend this tower. That’s (somewhat) the story behind Vanguard of War, a new tower defense board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Vanguard of War (VoW) is an upcoming 1-4 player board game from Archon Studio with highly-detailed miniatures and brutal tower defense gameplay. Players will field four heroes tasked with defending a single objective from a relentless army of demons. Each hero brings unique skills and abilities to the battlefield, and players will need to master them to all if they hope to achieve victory.
The theme of VoW is survival. The world, barely enduring the first invasion of demons is now on the precipice of another. The valiant men and women of the Fateeran Militia have stolen the demon’s doomsday weapon but have no chance of escaping with their prize. Securing the artifact in a decrepit church, the heroes must delay an army of monsters while their allies learn how to use the demons’ own weapon against them.
The Kickstarter campaign is doing fairly well. By that, I mean that they’re more than 3x funded with still 21 days left to go.
