Now On Kickstarter: Twilight of the Gods
January 5, 2017 - 5:10pm
It is the middle of the 5th century AD, and the gods are dying. In parallel to the unrest rotting the foundations of the Roman Empire, pantheons of deities across the globe see their temples profaned and their followers lament. Belief ebbs from the world....The once-mighty gods, now desperately scheming to collect remaining scraps of faith, seek a way to endure the coming Dark Age – an inevitable future pressing through time with the weight of a singularity – and every god must meet these final tests or perish forever to legend.Victory Point Games has announced their upcoming game Twilight of the Gods: Age of Revelation, a two-player expandable card game. Each player will wield a modifiable 50-card deck, taking on the role of one of the ancient deities from the universal pantheon of mythology. On each turn, players will "draw two cards, acquire resources from other players, and use them to summon Creatures, Schemes, Fortifications, and Intrigues." A player wins if he or she manages to deplete the other player's "life", or deck of cards. A copy of the game will include 4 pre-constructed, balanced decks, featuring the deities Mars, Hera, Enlil, and the Reader of Portents. The project is set to fund on Thursday, January 6, 2017.
