Ares Games To Reprint City Of Chaos In 2019
June 2, 2018 - 10:22am
In 1996, Monocle Games with designers Martyn Oliver and Colin Thornton released City of Chaos, one of the first true story telling games to hit the market. And now 22 years later, Ares Games has announced a new edition of this ground breaking classic. In City of Chaos, 1-6 players travel the city of Byronitar, solving mysteries, building their characters, fighting monsters and dealing with random events. The city is built one tile at a time, and together with the random plot and world generator, players are ensured a unique experience every time they play. City of Chaos was also one of the first games to use a look-up book of paragraph stories, a mechanic adopted recently by such masterpieces as Tales of the Arabian Nights, Above and Below, and Near and Far. Finally, players must deduce how to win the game from clues left in the paragraphs they read. You can read the full press release from Ares Games here, and keep an eye out for the new edition of City of Chaos in the second half of 2019.
