Early concepts: Birth of Overturn

Posted by Foxtales Studios LTD (Creator)

Overturn has been in works for quite a few years. Humayun had conceived the game almost three years back and had a working paper made model that he showed me one warm evening in Karachi. 

I was a purebred video gamer and not that big on board games besides your run of the mill monopoly and Risk sessions with friends so the idea of a board game that played like a story rich RPG was foreign to me.

But in just one playthrough I was convinced. Humayun made me realize that the game had tons of opportunities for me as a story teller and I was part of Foxtales from that day on. I may not be a published writer but Overturn's story is something that I am really proud of. Here are some early concepts of the game. Some of the pictures were taken by me during that first playthrough.

This is what blew me away as a gamer. A living breathing world not controlled by a computer code (the video game way)

      This is so cool seeing the early conceptualization of the game! Thanks for sharing this with us all and best of luck. Proud to be a backer and supporter of this game. Can't wait to get on the table.

      While I don't know if I'll be able to afford to fully pledge on this project, I definitely enjoy seeing the concept work and other behind the scenes stuff. I've been watching the project for a while now, and it definitely looks cool, and a rarely used theme/lore.

      You haven't mentioned it, but everytime I come to this project I cannot avoid bringing Diablos' desert Acts to my mind. You know... Arreat, Caldeum, ... (Is the first thing that attracted me from this boardgame)

      You said you are a videogame fan, and RPG fan, so you should understand the references. ;)
