leaders of euphoria

With the success of Euphoria on Kickstarter, Overworld Games is aiming to expand on the universe with a new game Leaders of Euphoria: Choose a Better Oppressor.  This game is set in the Euphoria universe but at the beginning of the timeline, when everyone is choosing who their new leader will be.  The game is designed by Brian Henk and Clayton Skancke and it will play like Good Cop, Bad Cop, a popular social deduction game from the duo released last year, and so will be a much lighter and quicker game compared to it’s euro style brother.  More information can be found on the Prefundia page and you can sign up to receive an email when the official campaign launches on Kickstarter this summer.  You can read the full press release from Overworld Games below.

Overworld Games Announces Leaders of Euphoria: Choose a Better Oppressor

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (March 15, 2016) – At the GAMA Trade Show, Overworld Games announces a Q4 2016 title they will be publishing called Leaders of Euphoria: Choose a Better Oppressor, a social deduction game for 4-8 players in the style of Good Cop Bad Cop and set in the Euphoria universe.

The immensely successful euro-style worker placement game Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia was published in 2013 by Stonemaier Games with the help of almost 5000 backers on Kickstarter. Euphoria is known for its tongue-in-cheek humor about a dystopian culture in the future where a higher class competes for control over markets and valuable minerals while a lower class toils away in the mines. Good Cop Bad Cop is an award-winning hidden identity and deduction game that was published in 2014 by Overworld Games.

Leaders of Euphoria: Choose a Better Oppressor is designed by Brian Henk and Clayton Skancke, best known for Good Cop Bad Cop and New Salem, and developed with the help of Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games. The artist for Euphoria, Jacqui Davis, has signed on to do the illustrations for Leaders of Euphoria. It takes place when Euphoria was a young city and its citizens were choosing who they want to lead their city into the future.

More details on Leaders of Euphoria will be available on its Prefundia page over the coming months.
