About

Motora is worker placement, resource management game for 2-6 players that features dice combat and capture the flag objectives. The gods of Motora are angrily devastating the island. Players must gather the sacred idols they need to survive while keeping their people fed, all while fending off attacks from other tribes!

In Motora you must help your tribe survive in a race against time and each other. Retrieve the sacred idols needed to calm the angry gods before they destroy the island you call home. 

Gathering enough resources to keep your tribe alive may seem easy at first, but as the island becomes more and more desolate you will find yourselves fighting each other over more than just the idols. 

Motora features a blend of mechanisms from a variety of genres that gives players a unique challenge requiring a mix of skills to succeed. The game aims to give players a large number of choices to make as they lead their tribes. 

  • Manage your resources to stay alive or choose to take a loss in order to complete one of your goals. 
  • Use strategy to decide whether to rush for the idols or to build up your strength first. 
  • Try and avoid conflict with the other tribes or be as aggressive as possible to dominate the island. 
  • Push your luck with a risky strategy but remember the gods of Motora are fickle and may punish you for overextending yourself.

We've sent the game to more people and will post their coverage here as soon as it is available.

At this stage Motora will be customs friendly for backers in the EU and the US. I would love to have more customs friendly locations but unfortunately this all depends on backer numbers. If the campaign receives enough interest in these areas then one of the first things I want to do is add more customs friendly options.

To make this all possible I've partnered with a company called Ship Naked in order to get Motora from the factory and into your hands. Ship Naked have fulfilled a large number of projects to backers all around the world so they know what they're doing.

Manufacture

To bring Motora to life and onto your game table I'll be working with Ludofact. Ludofact are a German based manufacturer with years of experience. I've been talking to them for months sorting out what to do and how to prepare. 

----------

This game is in pre-production. Kickstarter images are not final. While there is no immediate plan for any major changes, the final look, materials, and content of the game are subject to change and may differ slightly from what is presented while the Kickstarter project was active.

Risks and challenges

Just like any kickstarter project, there are risks. This is my first project. I have spent a lot of time and energy to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. I plan on making the game in Europe rather than in China, this does add a little to the cost but ensures that the game is being made somewhere closer to home and easier to contact. The company I am working with is Ludofact and they have years of experience working on projects of all sizes. I've made sure to work with experienced people at every stage of the process. The timeline also has some extra allowance added to account for any delays that might occur.
