A new Kickstarter by Nika Designer Josh Raab

Hello! Josh here, the designer of Nika. I have a new project called Sumer that I wanted to share with you.

Sumer is a digital board game that puts Euro-style mechanics like auctions and worker placement into a real-time video game. As a Sumerian noble, you compete to perform ritual sacrifices and please the great goddess Inanna. Skill, strategy, and adaptability are all important for achieving victory.

I've been working on Sumer as part of Studio Wumpus, a small studio I co-founded along with three of my classmates at the NYU Game Center. It draws on board games like Lords of Waterdeep, Caylus, and Agricola for inspiration, as well as the Atari classic M.U.L.E. What makes it unique and separates it from board game ports is that it's designed from the ground up to be a video game, which opened up a whole new space for board game-style design.

Sumer is on Kickstarter now! You can check it out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/studiowumpus/sumer-a-game-of-divine-strategy

Thank you!  Josh
