In a steampunk Victorian England, dark forces are at work. The crown is not safe, as an evil cult looks to bring the nefarious Moloch into the world. The only thing standing against these dark forces are the gentlemen of the Unicorn Club. But who will eventually control the dark, rainy, smog-filled streets of London? That’s up to you to decide in The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch, a new board game coming from CMON and launching on Kickstarter next month.
In the game, 2-5 players will look to either save London or destroy it. One player will take on the role of the Nemesis, controlling various agents of evil, while the other players will take on the role of Gentlemen of the Unicorn Club, a sort of Victorian Steampunk Avengers made up of all manner of individuals, from werewolves to arcane gunsmen to technomancers. Each one is unique with their own special abilities and upgrades. As the heroes work to battle the forces of the Nemesis, they’ll be spending Ether which will actual fuel the Nemesis player’s abilities. So, knowing when to use that precious energy and how much to use will be key in your victory or defeat.
The game will be making its way to Kickstarter on January 17th.
