The Creators might have created everything, but things have gotten out of control. Their line of rule is at an end. At least, that's what the heroes have to say about it. That's the story behind Raid Boss, a new cooperative adventure puzzle game that is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Raid Boss is a 1-4 player tabletop battle puzzle designed like a strategy RPG. It keeps all of the cooperative teamwork, combos, and collaboration, but none of the endless grinding!
This world, ruled by Tyr, has become warped and embattled. The shifting Void, along with antagonism from fellow Creators, Berdea, Reika, and Akeri, has left this universe in a state of turmoil. Emergent heroes, the Incarnates, struggle to gain autonomy in this reality, rallying forces and overturning the destructive whim of their Creators.
You control a Hero with a mechanically distinct and heavily themed set of abilities. Each Hero has an Assist that can be used at ANY time -- including other players’ turns! Gather your team to face off against stalwart, quirky, and skill-testing Bosses that come equipped with their own special deck of cards.
There are currently 12 playable Heroes and 6 Bosses to challenge, each lavishly illustrated, giving you a wealth of content and variety of challenges.
Raid Boss has flexibility that allows you to devise incredibly clever skill sequences. Game-ending threats soon become trivial as you experiment and gain experience, allowing you to tackle devious and puzzle-like advanced Bosses.
The campaign is just up and over its funding goal, but there's just a touch over 2 days left as well.
