Since we completed the fulfillment of the project early this year, we had no more reasons to post updates, but... finally... we do!
FIRST - the new version of the App is coming, including all the Wave 2 cards, the new features required to support Darkness Falls events (no spoilers here, but you probably know what I mean), and cleaned up of a few bugs. Gremlin Project completed the testing, the developers are including the new features, and before the end of August you will be able to download it from Itunes and Google Play. Sorry it took longer than we envisioned - you know we make great games, but apps just don't come easy to us...
SECOND - We are at GenCon! If you are at the best 4 days in gaming next week, do not forget to stop by at the Ares booth #335 and say hello! Or join us in Event Hall A to play in one of the many events we run there,
And, last but not least... some of you may have seen the little teasers we've spread around, but here's the official announcement... SWORD & SORCERY is coming back to Kickstarter before the end of the year!
Follow us on Facebook and on www.aresgames.eu in August and September, to learn more about this new project. We will also do monthly updates here to keep you informed... and making sure you're always one step ahead to get the important news. For a start, read below for exclusive information about the new campaign!
Ancient Chronicles will be a completely new cycle, which will allow players to visit the world of Sword & Sorcery many, many years before the events narrated in the Immortal Souls campaign. As it's a new campaign, it will have the same basic "two acts" structure than the previous one. You will have a new starting point, but everything will be fully compatible in terms of gameplay (so you can crossover heroes and monsters from one campaign to another one).
If you are worried it might be "more of the same"... it definitely is not! Gameplay will remain familiar, but we will also add many, many interesting new elements to the setting, the narrative and the mechanics, without making the game more complex. These new features should make many of you really happy: looking at some "wishlists" we have seen circulating, we can really say your minds and those of the Gremlins think very much along the same lines!
Thanks for your continued support, and we very much look forward to this new chance to interact with you and make the S&S community to grow! Stay tuned for more S&S news!
