The artist behind the game, Fabio, created mesmerizing artwork, portraying a universe where steam power and elemental magic meet Da Vinci’s inventions. Our team selected the best production and distribution partners to bring you the highest possible quality and the best gaming experience, but we need your support to fund the actual creation of the game.
We have loads of awesome ideas for possible expansions, and we think Kickstarter is the perfect platform to fuel the full development of Dark Tales of Nadaras.
In Dark Tales of Nadaras you will be the leader of one of the factions exploring a mysterious island in search for power and glory. You will have to carefully plan your actions to prevail over your opponents and survive the deadly defenses of the island.
Do you have what it takes to become a legend?
Turn by turn you have the opportunity to make wondrous scientific discoveries or exploit the natural magic of the island to unlock new structures for your settlement or units for your army.
Exceptionally gifted individuals, heroes, will become your field agents, discovering the deepest and darkest secrets of this island.
Conflicts over territory or resources will be common between factions and, far from imperial supervision, what really matters is the end not the means to reach it.
The island itself, however, reacts to human presence, trying to reestablish order by cleansing the land from all living beings.
What pathway will you choose to become the Emperor’s favorite?
Force, wealth, fame or knowledge?
Will you cultivate science or rediscover lost magic?
All this and much more is Dark Tales of Nadaras!

Risks and challenges
Our team is new to the industry of board-game design and production but we are not new to entrepreneurial endeavors.
