Mortals: Descent of the Gods is a cooperative battle-arena board game set in a museum in modern times. You and your friends play as Greek, Norse, and Egyptian gods that have been made Mortal by Death himself. Now, with the world coming to an end, you and your fellow once-gods are being called out of ambiguity to fight Death and unlock his secrets within the walls of this museum. Can you halt the engine of Earth's destruction?
"I can't say enough good about this game. As a reviewer, I try out a lot of games that trade fun for complexity and while they can be satisfying from an intellectual perspective, some of 'em just aren't highly entertaining. Mortals is the opposite; a well designed game with lots of replayability, fun, fast, and easy enough that casual gamers and friends interested in co-ops can jump in and enjoy themselves."

More to come...
During Gen Con, PAX South, and the 400+ playtest hours, we asked our playtesters what they thought made Mortals: Descent of the Gods unique and fun to play:
- Each god has their own unique powers, giving everyone a chance to shine.
- Each Mythic (miniboss) has cool abilities that ties into their stories from legend.
- Thanks to the random monster spawns and modular board design, the game is highly replayable.
- The game has a lot of humor. We may be battling the Grim Reaper for the fate of humanity, but that levity keeps the game fun.
- The game constantly feels like you're on the edge of your seat, as monsters keep swarming and filling the museum. You feel like a hero in an action movie where it's all on the line for the fate of the world!

Risks and challenges
Our quality control threshold is high - we are determined not to produce anything unless it's as good as it can possibly be. With that in mind, we have carefully refined our designs and chosen our manufacturers with the goal to produce the best possible version of the game.
Besides a few final tweaks, the game is complete! The materials need to be printed, but for the most part, the rules, characters and items are in their final design form. Once our Kickstarter campaign concludes, we will be ready to proceed directly to manufacturing.
There is always a small risk of unforeseen delays in manufacturing or shipping, but we have taken every possible precaution to avoid any unexpected costs to our backers. Additionally, we value transparency, and we send honest updates of our timeline should we encounter any significant delays.
Thank you so much for your help in bringing this game to life!
