About

Eletria Games is a game design start-up from Italy. We have poured our hearts and geekness in the development of Dark Tales of Nadaras, then we enlisted an army of friends and fellow-geeks to play-test every single rule and game dynamic.

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?

At the beginning of the game, you will be a faction leader planning your perilous journey to Nadaras, a mechanical island that mysteriously appeared in the middle of the ocean. Every attempt to establish an outpost on its metal shores have previously failed and just one survivor returned, telling tales of horror and riches beyond imagination. The Emperor himself tasked the bravest and most resourceful nobles to claim the island in his name with the promise of eternal power and glory.  
To win the game you have to develop your faction according to several parametres: military power, territory, knowledge, fame and influence over the imperial court.

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!
