About this project
In the Time of Chaos, the God of War was the supreme ruler over all the other gods. When the Time of Peace came, it lasted so long that the God of War started to lose his power. He grew weaker as the years went by and was pushed aside by the other gods. As his power faded and he felt that the end was near, he gave task to his four children, the demigods, to prove themselves as the most exemplary commanders on the field of battle. The one who emerges victorious will become the new God of War and bring the former glory to their name.
Demigods Rising is a Skirmish-style board game in which players take the roles of the demigods, commanding armies of heroes to prove supremacy over others and ascend as the new God of War. As a demigod, a player initially has access to 20 heroes from which they can chose their army. With these choices made, a demigod then faces his opponent(s) on the sacred battleground.
When designing Demigods Rising we drew our inspiration from Chess, Heroes of Might and Magic and MOBA games such as DOTA & DOTA2 and League of Legends. We are bringing you a game with great replayability that is easy to learn but relies heavily on hard-to-master tactics through which victory can be achieved in multiple game modes by fulfilling different conditions.
We put in a lot of effort to capture the character of each hero in its illustration and its minis. Currently, we have several minis that are in pre-production phase. We will share them as they are completed. We are sure that the painters will love the detail captured in the models as we have already gotten great responses from those who have received prototypes of our finished models.
- You may be the luckiest guy in the world but if your mage reveals his weak spot to a rogue, well... luck wont matter much. There is no overpowered lineup. Any team can be countered with good planing and foreseeing your opponent's strategy. Take your best poker face to the table!
- Demigods Rising features 38760 possible team combinations so you won’t ever have to play with the same team. What’s even better, this number of combinations gets higher as you decide to play with 7, 8 or 9 heroes. And that’s only the base game. How’s that for replayability?
- Each and every hero we created has a comprehensive story showing them for what they really are - an individual worthy of fighting in a demigod’s army! Whether you value cunning or bravery, magic or blunt force of a mace – we have you covered with a variety of first class heroes.

Picking your army is very important. You need to outperform your opponent by countering his picks, taking possible racial bonuses into consideration and putting heroes who have same attack type next to each other.

Heroes represent the finest warriors of every race. Each hero is classified into one of five classes: warriors, tanks, rogues, archers and mages. Also, there are 3 types of divine powers. Warriors and tanks use rage to fuel their attacks and bolster defenses, rouges and archers use focus to deliver precise blows to their enemies and finally mages use mana to sustain their potent spells.
Each hero can be optionally purchased as high quality resin miniature. Here is a list of available heroes that will be done in resin:
- Free shipping from within US, CANADA and EU (no extra taxes will be applied)
- For shipping anywhere else, please add 23$ to your pledge.

Risks and challenges
A project like this requires great teamwork between skillful game designers, artists, sculptors, writers and manufacturers. The miniatures still need to be mastered for plastic production and the game components need to finalized and printed. We are working with a great game manufacturing company that has successfully delivered many other Kickstarter games.
We understand that when it comes to producing overseas, delays are possible, especially in regards to shipping and customs. We will do everything we can to mitigate any problems and we will keep you informed every step of the way. Communication is a key component of any Kickstarter, so we will be posting regular updates throughout the campaign and will notify you immediately if any problems arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
