The folks that created the digital edition of Scythe have announced that they're getting into the board game industry fully with their first game of their own design, Death Roads: All Stars. As one would expect, it's all about arming up your ride and taking out the competition on the way to the finish line.
From the release:
Wrocław-based game studio from Poland, The Knights of Unity, is entering the board game market as a new publisher. They also announced their debut project, called Death Roads: All Stars.
Death Roads: All Stars is a crazy race in which players take on the role of drivers of armed cars and fight with each other for survival. Only the victory matters, and the reward is the right to live in a true paradise on Earth.
Such a high stake means that all tricks are allowed. Therefore, in Death Roads: All Stars, players use a rich arsenal of weapons in the form of cards, the abilities of their drivers, and the board itself to win. However, one should watch out for random events on the road and keep in mind the unpredictable mechanics of the skid - they can change the fate of the race!
This year the Kickstarter campaign starts, and the creators count on the support of the community! They want to create a product on a "from players to players" basis, so they wish players will help to improve Death Roads: All Stars.
In addition to releasing Death Roads: All Stars, The Knights of Unity is also working on a digital version of the game - Death Roads: Tournament. It will be a natural evolution of the original idea, with a few surprises in the form of roguelike elements and deck-building mechanics. If you are a fan of Slay the Spire, you will definitely like the dangerous roads of Death Roads: Tournament.
There are many experienced game developers and enthusiasts in the ranks of the Knights. The team is convinced that the final form of both the board and the digital game will appeal to even the most demanding players. They have been working on games for 6 years - in their portfolio you will find such titles as Disco Elysium, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and Card Hunter. The Knights of the Unity have also created a digital version of the popular board game - Scythe, available on Steam as Scythe: Digital Edition.
