WELCOME TO CROSSFADED INC.
It is the year 2200 and a brand new augmented reality game is released. With business booming and tight deadlines to meet some are reluctant to stop their work for games; but Gary's persistent boasts of the grandeur of the new game and assurance that they are far ahead of schedule convince the rest of the office to join in on the experience. Soon the whole office had clocked out and were headed out to the lake. As everyone placed their helmets on, the world around changed....there was no turning back now. normal objects appeared as fantasy!- There were now Augmented Taverns with beer-Strength potions ,Dispensaries with buffing joints! Augmented monsters on the dock of the bay, People everywhere plug in and are now involved in friendly and not so friendly competition! the town was now pitted against each other in a massive LARP kerfuffle! who is who? who will become an Omega Hero?
THIS IS SMOKELAND TACTICS
The tabletop grid-based strategy game with an array of everyday characters and satirical content set in a near future sci-fi world. Enjoy the classic game based off of checkers or an all out town-wide LARP brawl with Rush mode. Battle it out with characters like Candy the dancer with mad swerve, Heimlerstein the 40 throwing psychologist, Henderson the woke accountant, Doug the elusive techie, punk-ass Thomas the comptroller, Gary the hulking janitor and 6 other professional world heroes in the first edition of SMOKELAND TACTICS
HOW TO PLAY
The classic game begins as checkers; players then draw 3 cards (MAX) which include various modifying accouterments, buildings, the newest fashion, hairstyles, fireworks and whips to scrape. Once a checker is equipped with an item they become a player, they now have the ability to wander onto adventure squares and can not be affected by normal checkers, but be wary moving back into the checkers plane you can still be hopped!
As a player, you can now freely upgrade your piece with any item or vehicle, these items will raise your stats, (you can only have one item for each slot) Head, neck, body, ring, left hand, right hand. this can be kept track of by stacking stat checkers! Players also have the ability to use firework items! Stats include Attack, Defense, HP, Range, movement, and Ability power.
Once a player piece enters the middle of the checker board (Any space that is not in the 3 starting rows on either side), they must draw an encounter card. Encounter cards will include battles with monsters, and events. Encounter cards could reward either specific, or random items.
Once a piece is kinged or reaches the opponents side via adventure squares; you gain the ability to draw a character card from the Hero's deck. Players and Heroes battle it out RPG style on a separate plane from normal checkers, with a unique battle system involving dice, hero specific movement and unique skill attacks. No Character is the same! assassins, front line brawlers, Healers, buffers, ranged explosive experts, crowd control and even Defensive tanks! This is the the one and only competitive strategy game that places you in control of fantasy crazed characters role-playing in public!

THE CROSSFADED TEAM
Brandon- SMOKELAND TACTICS game creator with a love for writing sci-fi, gaming, and Skateboarding! Currently working as a cook; but all my free time is spent writing, and organizing the SMOKELAND TACTICS universe!
Joe- Ex-Sega and Game revolution web developer and visual Artist! long time Strategy game lover! Baller and shot caller!
We have spent countless hours playing strategy games such as Vagrant hearts, Valkyrie Chronicles, FF tactics, checkers and chess. We believe the we have developed a near perfect tabletop grid-based game formula that is very deep but also easy to start playing! to win you will need Strategy, Skill and a little luck!
The actual Game formula has been complete, playable, and enjoyed by friends for many years under the name REGICIDE. This primitive version is played with paper cards and mixed game pieces. after some thought and story writing we have brought the original formula out of the dark ages and to the future with more humor, characters, and story than ever before!
Here at Crossfaded; we envision the future of gaming, and seek to support artist of all mediums! We seek to release frequent updates to the game, a virtual game, and a live action movie based off of SMOKELAND TACTICS!
The movie will include Augmented reality skateboard scenes, massive creatures in beautiful locations, action packed battles, Augmented reality restaurants, buildings, clubs, and a deep plot exploring the possibility's and fears of augmented reality with humor and drama, and plenty of intense thriller action.
The live action movie will have many challenges. At the moment we have a small film team interested but we will need funds for Cameras, green screens, Actors, and music. I am a musician with a vast network of dedicated musicians who will help with the creation of a sound track! At the moment the SMOKELAND TACTICS film is in early development and is not the main focus, unless we can get enough funding! Dont fret; you will be immersed in the augmented reality craze in the full novella with the basic edition of SMOKELAND TACTICS!
If we reach our target goal of 4000, we will release the first edition of the game featuring the original cast of 12 characters, and the full novella!
If we reach 8000 we will release a expansion pack including 6 new characters, a new building and vehicle
if we reach 16,000 we will release a special edition including a DVD where Joe, Brandon, and the rest of Crossfaded Studios discuss the origins of the game, our other projects ( Video games), a short film, and an art gallery
If we reach 40,000 we will create the SMOKELAND TACTICS full length movie
