About

 

 

 

"Dante's Adventure: Hell's Rising" is a board-game set in the famous literary work "The Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri. In this particular setting, we will enjoy a game based on an epic and thrilling story about the eternal struggle between good and evil. 

The Characters.

The heroes must master different areas of the afterlife world to achieve their own goals: hell, purgatory and heaven are the places where they will be moving through. To be successful, our own heroes will be accompanied by spiritual forces: lesser and mayor demons, the hell keepers and the guardians.

Dante

The story begins in hell. A nightmare place where cruel men's souls are punished eternally. Now they roam in places where only low frequency madness exists. We shall go to the rings of hell, seize and keep citadels, face guardians and hell entities in battle... Many obstacles await!

This is a fantastic game that intersperses the management of great powers, strategy and conquest. The confrontation is served... Who will win?

Hell's Rising is an interesting game in play; mechanics or rules are not complex but they need some learning. UPDATED (1-11-2016) The second version of the rulebook, in English, pdf format, is available here to download!

You can also watch the video we have prepared featuring Patricia, she explains the basics of the game. This video has been subtitled to the English language.

Game features.

This game is played without dices, it can be defined as an euro game:

  • It is very strategic: competition is basic, each of our actions needs to be carefully planned in order to collect more souls than your opponents, or to force him to collect less than you... This game is based deeply in resource management.

As spirits dwelling in hell, we must make an intelligent use of our three different available spiritual points:

- Will: it is needed to perform actions; to invoke demons, playing cards, getting gifts of the Divine Providence, or to move around the board of the game.

- Fortress: points of fortress limit the number of host cards that we can have in play.

- Fate: states the number of host cards that we can recover from the Eternal Punishment.

Just a brief example of the factors that are to be taken into account as we interact through the game, doing the better we can to get the biggest number of souls. This can be done through actions like movements, hindering other players, declaring battles, occupying strategic areas, playing gift of providence cards at the right time... We will have to make an intelligent use of our few spiritual points!

  • Dynamic: with elements such as the great power cards, the hosts, the different phases of the game, the guardians... Every game will have its own story! 
  • Artistic: the artwork has been carefully designed to reflect the great magnificence of Dante Alighieri's literary work. this in detailed in the art section of this project.
  • Epic!

Some cards are used to boost our hosts, other cards are to help you in the battle, to colect souls or to slow down your opponents' pace, to declare wars or to stop them... We have the guardian cards, being these powerful demon entities that are to serve us in the game. Special power cards are used to enhance our hosts, making them better collecting souls, fighting in batlle, or getting special abilities. 

Here they are, the options we have to back the game and other add-ons. The personal pledge is available for those who want to be part of the artwork.

The Hell's Rising : Dante's Adventure artwork has been carefully designed. We put special emphasis in the idea of it looking like a parchment, ld paper style.

To be truth to the original literary work, the greatest part of the game has been designed over paper. We think is an appropriated way to honor "The Divine Comedy".

That is the reason why we took meticulous careful to create an unique artwork. Far from the tenebrist or gothic aesthetics, we hace decided to bet for a dark but simple design, as if they were notes being taken in a traveller's book.

We tried to keep the price of the game as low as possible. This is a list of the shipping costs for some common destinations. It refers to the cost of an unit of the game. Shipping fees are already included in the prize of the pledges for shops.

Risks and challenges

The only real risks are a the possibility of a slight delay in the production of the parts of the game, due to the meticulous supervision we are doing of the manufacturing process; we want to ensure the highest quality of the game. The components are made locally in Spain and are closely supervised.

Why should I back this?
Because it is an unique game with a great mechanic and an unmatched continuity. A story full of adventures and quarrels, and epic mix.

What are we going to spend the money on?
As part of our compromise with those people who support and fund our project, we would like to state what we are and will be using the funds for.
The money collected in this crowdfunding campaign will be used for the following:

1- Paying the designers who created the art, packaging, and DA' logos.
2- Paying the wages of the graphic designers who helped with card design, tokens and other game assets.
3- Paying our suppliers, dealers and the companies responsible for manufacturing the final product.
4- In the hypothetical case that the crowdfunding campaign would be successful enough to provide us with a surplus of money, we will use that surplus for creating our new game.

Thanks for taking your time to read this.
