Big shows are a great place to release new games, as well as preview upcoming projects. Ares Games is taking those opportunities at Origins in a couple weeks. They'll be having the official launch of Sword & Sorcery, as well as giving attendees a chance to play several new games that'll be available later this year.
Sword & Sorcery
Ares Games has been rolling along quite nicely with their Sword & Sorcery Kickstarter campaign. In case you'd forgotten, that's the game where you play as reawakened heroes from a bygone age, summoned back to the conscious world to fight a growing evil in the world. But you're a bit groggy and have to beat up on some lesser evils first. Will you regain your strength in time to save the world?
Ares Games keeps chugging along with their Sword & Sorcery board game Kickstarter campaign. There was quite the surge right out of the gate. They're now well over 400% funded and still have a lot of time to go. To help raise that funding total even further, there's a bunch of add-ons that people can add to their pledge.
You just can't seem to keep evil down. You think you've gotten it all taken care of and wrapped up. It might even take a couple centuries, but it seems like it's always making a comeback. Such is the case in Ares Games' latest project up on Kickstarter. In Sword & Sorcery, an ancient evil is once again threatening the world. This is the metaphorical "big one," and it'll take the combined efforts of some of history's greatest heroes in order to defeat it.
Ares Games and Gremlin Project are teaming up to bring you a new sword and sorcery board game. In fact, they're leaving nothing to chance and going straight-forward with the name and just calling it Sword & Sorcery. The campaign is set to launch on Kickstarter on October 15th.
Many heroes have come and gone over the ages. They are bright, shining points in the darkness, but they fade out. Well, when the darkness rallies and looks to engulf everything, many lights must be used. Heroes must be brought back from the dead in order to turn the tide and make sure that good and light prevail. Such is the story in Sword & Sorcery, a new cooperative board game by Gremlin Project and Ares Games.
