An ancient civilization has been found right under your feet. This civilization was highly technologically advanced, and now the race is on to get the best bits. Different entrepreneurs have set up operations and are looking to get the greatest riches for themselves. That's the story behind Rusty Industry, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Rusty Industry is an economic strategy game that encourages growth and trade as players race to build industrial superpowers from the ground up. Feel the influence of an interactive economy as the effects of supply and demand shape your choices!
In a quiet farming community on the outskirts of the capitol city, a community of peasants makes an incredible discovery: beneath their fields lay the ruins of an advanced society.
All of this commotion quickly comes to the attention of the Rusty King, the boisterous monarch of the land, whose love of riches knows no bounds. The king devises an ingenious plan to establish a great industrial empire: assemble the brightest minds across the continents, divide the rusty ruins of old industry among them, and pit them against each other to compete for a hefty sum of the profits.
You play as one of the king’s chosen entrepreneurs: buying buildings, trading with competitors, and upgrading your facilities to maximize your product output. Complete orders and clash with rivals to build your industrial empire from the ground up. The future of your company--and your new empire--depends on it!
The campaign is up and running now with 28 days left to go.
