Yesterday Gamelyn Games launched Heroes of Land, Air & Sea on Kickstarter, a 2-hour 4X style game that’s easy to learn and play. I believe that promise as the game being designed by Scott Almes, designer of the Tiny Epic series of games.
Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a classic Orcs vs Human game. Being a 4X game, players will have to eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate, grabbing territory, managing resources, and crushing their opponents. The game handles 2-4 players but can be expanded to with Faction Packs to accommodate 5-6 players.
Everything here looks like it’ll be top notch, including the pre-painted miniatures. That’s not something we’re used to seeing in Kickstarter projects. Of course you’ll need to pledge at the $100 level to get the game included with the miniatures. Pledges at lower levels will get you die cut, cardboard standies.
