The following is a press release from Game-o-gami:

Game-O-Gami just launched a Kickstarter project to bring 2 new factions, the Egyptian and Celtic pantheons, to “Immortal” – the strategy game of warring mythologies:
 
The Egyptian and Celtic pantheons will join the Norse, Greek, Japanese, and Native American pantheons, for a total of 6 playable factions in Immortal. This new Kickstarter project functions as a stretch goal for the previous Immortal Kickstarter project which funded in July. So if the new Kickstarter successfully funds, then all of the new content (50% more cards, artwork, and special abilities) will be automatically added to every copy of the game when it releases next year.
 
In addition to upgrading the game for everyone, this Kickstarter project is also raising funds to produce a deck of custom Playing Cards, featuring the amazing artwork from the game. Each of the 54 cards in the Playing Cards deck (4 suits + 2 Jokers) will have a unique illustration of a god, goddess, hero, or monster from Norse, Greek, Japanese, or Egyptian mythology.
 
This is a short 16-day Kickstarter campaign, running until October 8th.

Publishers Press Release below.

Indie development studio Game-O-Gami has announced their upcoming game: Immortal. In this game of mythic strategy, 2 to 4 players summon armies of legendary gods, heroes, and monsters from four different mythological factions, and unleash them upon each other in an epic war for supremacy.

The gameplay thrusts players into back-and-forth battles to capture each other’s forces, involving strategic placement of character cards and harnessing of their special abilities. These battles take place on modular boards which are built up by the players as the game progresses, combining card battle and area control gameplay. Each faction has its own unique strengths and abilities, and is based on the myths and legends of a distinct world culture. The first of many planned master sets for Immortal will feature characters from Norse, Greek, Japanese, and Native American mythologies. The average playing time is 60 minutes.

Immortal has been developed, playtested, and polished over the course of three years under the former working title Legends At War. This is Game-O-Gami’s second game (following Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!), designed by David Sanhueza, with artwork by popular fantasy concept artists Xia Taptara, Monika Palosz, Kian Ng, Grant Griffard, and David Sanhueza. Immortal is in preparation to launch on Kickstarter in early 2015.
