About

What is the game?

Titanic Vengeance is a tile-based tabletop game in which tiles are used to create the game board, cards represent game items and the combat results are determined with dice in combination with any items a player might have in his/her inventory.

Why create this game? 

As a game designer I'm a huge fan of tabletop games and have been since childhood. This game is one that I did for a project in school but have since reworked and adjusted the rules so that they are more mechanically sound. I've also been looking at several illustrators to do the amazing artwork that will come with the game. I've found a couple illustrators, Laura will design the monster and environment cards, I've been in contact with her and she is onboard for the project. Now we are looking to you our fundraiser peers to help us bring this amazing game to fruition. 

Note: Laura's illustrations can be seen at http://laurartwork.wix.com/laurar and one of her illustrations is the project image. 

The other artist will design the titan and item cards and his work can be seen in the prototype images below with his awesome illustration of Cronus and Helios.

If we can meet our goal then I'd like to hire Swedish illustrator, Par Olofsson to design the card and tile backs as well as the illustration for the box top.

Where does the game take place? 

The game takes place in the Greek abyss known as Tartarus

What is the main focus?

The player controls one of eight Titans, moving his piece into undiscovered areas of the game board, at which time a tile is turned over to uncover a new dungeon of Tartarus. The player tries to locate the four keys that will unlock the Gates of Tartarus, freeing him to continue in his quest to take back Olympus from the gods who stole it from the Titans in the first place.

How do you win?

Players work cooperatively against the game defeating monsters and finding the four keys to unlock the Gates of Tartarus. Once the gate tile is uncovered they can use the keys to unlock the gates and win the game. At that time, the scores will be tallied and the Titan with the highest score is the King of the Titans. Players lose when all Titans are defeated (their health is reduced to 0).

Below are some of the cards you can expect to see in Titanic Vengeance: 

(NOTE: These cards are from the prototype that was created. The artwork is from various artists and their permission was granted to use for the purposes of the prototype)

Stretch Goals:

  • $20,000: Molded Titan Pawns
  • $25,000: Custom card backs designed by Par Oloffson
  • $30,000: Metal Titan Pawns

Risks and challenges

As we all know life happens, families, jobs, emergencies happen. As with anything else, I've learned to expect the unexpected.

I have a wife and two kids but they are fully supportive and help me deal with random little issues that occur.

For any larger issues and emergencies, I'll have to take care of those as they arise. However, updates will be regularly made to the community so that they are aware of the full status of each step in the process. Illustrations will be posted as soon as they are completed. Receipts so they know print orders have been sent. The works.

The big issue that we will be faced with is printing. It's hard to find quality printers but I have seen and talked to people that use The Game Crafter for getting good quality prints. Their website is https://www.thegamecrafter.com/

The other thing is that the illustrator is in Spain so there's a huge time difference. Luckily we have things like email and instant messaging to make communication smoother.

The last thing that will hinder this is funding. The funding requested will go towards paying the illustrator and creating prints of the game. If we get more then that extra will go back into the game to make things even better which will be noted in the stretch goals.
