Aetherium is getting 50% bigger. House Ikaru, a new 3rd faction for the game, is up on Kickstarter now. This new faction is sure to shake up the balance of the Aetherium, as their operatives move in to show that financial control of the real world is only the start of the aspirations of this giant megacorporation.
In the game, the House Ikaru units show their sheer control of the fuzzy world of Aetherium through a generally high amount of RAM. This lets them more directly influence the game. They can move around tiles on the board, take control of nexus points, and boost their abilities. However, all that RAM comes at a price. They tend to have few actions per round, so placement is key, as well as knowing when to use all that RAM.
The campaign is over 3/5 funded with still 29 days left to go.
