rising-5-banner Rising 5 is a cooperative, exploration/puzzle board game from Holy Grail Games and designed by Gary Kim and Evan Song. Following the example of others, such as Mansions of Madness and XCOM: The Board Game,Rising 5 will be supported by a digital app.

"Players can explore the planet to collect energy or clues and to fight against evil monsters. When players try to unlock the code, the App or the game master will give signs that lead to right code. If players successfully find the code, they win; if the Darkness Level reaches the Red Moon because of the evil monsters or if the Character card deck is exhausted, the players lose the game."

There's an extensive video, located here (in French but subtitled in English), that discusses not only his career progress but his inspirations behind Rising 5. You can watch a video play-through of the game here. To learn more about the campaign, as well as help support it, you can visit the Kickstarter page here.
