Dear Backers, you know us very well from our previous KS campaigns. So you know we put our whole hearts into each of our projects. Once again we would like to create a board game together with you. Therefore, we are counting on your support and involvement in designing the final look of ATLANTIS: Island of Gods.

In the game, Atlantis: Island of Gods, players serve as the High Priests to the gods for whom they erect monuments on Atlantis before its doom.

During the course of the game, players will take five actions per turn, using cards on four boards representing regions of Atlantis. The cards allow players (High Priests) to:  

  • Recruit New Followers  
  • Celebrate Feasts of Honor  
  • Build New Temples  

Goal: Build all of your deity's temples, find favor with your god, and survive the imminent catastrophe.

The game is in English or German (you will choose your language version in the pledge manager), but it is designed in a way that few game components (only reference sheets and the rulebook) require translation. Such an approach will allow us to make more language-dependent versions during the campaign.

The game box will be the same for all language versions. There is a description in several languages on the back of the box.

Long before the civilizations that we know of today, a great island, known by contemporary scientists as Atlantis, thrived and flourished due to the inhabitants' sacrifices and honor which they bestowed upon the gods. In turn, the gods blessed them with cultural achievements and technological advancements, especially in the area of art and architecture, while the Atlanteans built glorious monuments to the gods. For centuries, all was well, until...  

Ares, son of Zeus and Hera, brought war to Atlantis, dividing the people and their gods. His cruelty caused unending strife to the Atlanteans. To protect their followers, the gods sent powerful visions to the priests or took human form, acting as prophets among the people. In the end, however, the creator of the primeval sea sought to end the Atlanteans' suffering by casting Atlantis into the depths.  

With assistance from the gods, several tribes of Atlanteans survived, bringing their knowledge and culture to distant lands.

First of all - you are pledging to bring this project to life. Without your support this game will not see daylight. But if we will meet our target easily, we will be adding special content and components to every copy of the game.

To keep things simple - your Kickstarter edition will be far richer then the one that will be available in retail.

Risks and challenges

We are confident about the delivery of the game - we have accumulated vast experience working on other titles and projects. The only risk factor, which can always happen, is a delay in delivery which might occur due to unforeseen circumstances. There are no expected delays at this time and we plan to send the game into manufacturing in September with a April 2019 delivery date. Please note that the final product might slightly change in the process. Considering our experiences, it is usually better to take some time and refine the product than to do it in a rush (we will always discuss potential changes with the community). We are fully devoted to creating an amazing game and you can trust that every choice we make for this product’s development will be dictated by improving the standard of the final product. We believe in being 100% open, honest, and transparent with our backers and will keep them up to date and informed. We are ready, willing, and excited to communicate and answer your questions. We are confident we can deliver the game on schedule with the highest quality components possible.
