Ares Games will preview four new games at the GAMA trade show (March 14-18).
Dungeon Time is a cooperative, real time card game full of dungeon exploration and the failures of your doomed adventurers. Players have five minutes to get in, get the loot, finish the quest, and get out. Dungeon Time is designed by Carlo Rossi and illustrated by Denys Martynets.
Behind the Throne is a push your luck card game for 2 to 4 players. An intrigue style game, players must bride, persuade, and blackmail in their climb towards power. Players will use set collection in an attempt to gain more nobles and dignitaries to their side. Behind the Throne is designed by Oleksandr Nevskiy and Oleg Sidorenko, the authors of “Mysterium,” and illustrated by Denys Martynets. The game was developed by Ukrainian publisher IGames, with Ares Games getting the publishing and distribution license in four languages – English, Italian, Spanish and Chinese.
Last Friday is a deduction style, hidden movement game based around popular “slasher” movies. Players take on the role of young campers desperately trying to survive the long weekend. Another player takes on the role of an undying psychopath out for blood. Designed by Antonio Ferrara and Sebastiano Fiorillo, Last Friday is a game for 2 to 6 players, divided into 4 chapters full of horror and suspense. Last Friday comes as a co-operation between Ares and Pendragon Game Studio.
Also from the same designers and publishers comes Stay Away!
Stay Away! is a fast paced card game of secret identities for 4 or more players, inspired by paranoid settings such as Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and the classic horror movie “The Thing.” A group of archeologists has mysteriously disappeared during an expedition to the risen island of R’lyeh. Players are members of a rescue team sent to aid them, but while investigating the site, they encounter something terrible that seeks to destroy their team. Players must work together to eliminate a creature possessing and imitating humans. The first edition of the game was published in 2014, funded with a Kickstarter campaign. Ares will publish and distribute a new English edition of Stay Away! Improving the original editions in multiple ways.
