Lands Of Ruin is now live on Kickstarter
It will be running for the next 18 days
I have been following this one closely as I am liking the idea of the tablet taking care of the mundane tasks during gameplay, I have downloaded the "beta" version of the command app and it seems fairly easy to use and navigate around it. I have not yet tried a full 2 player game yet, but will hopefully sometime this week.
The renders of the miniatures look outstanding especially the Baleans, I could imagine they would be good for a number of games systems outside of Lands Of Ruin, as would the Reclaimers
Just like you could use the Lands Of Ruin miniatures with other systems, you can use any mini you own already and make your own heroes and cohorts
There are a variety of pledges on offer, ranging from just £17EB/£19 Digital Pack – £80EB/£95 XL Miniatures Pack – £450 Lifetime Benefactor, with a few pledges inbetween.
"Lands of Ruin is a post-apocalypse tabletop wargame. However, it is not just another run-of-the-mill clone of every other game on the market. This next generation tabletop game utilises the recent advances in mobile technology to bring a more realistic, faster paced, and deeper gaming experience to the already mature tabletop wargaming genre."*
"The battlefield is not empty. Players' tribes confront remnants of the final war in the form of automated drones, decaying battle mechs still executing their wartime orders, and hordes of infected dead, all controlled by the companion app's A.I."*
"Previously in wargaming, hidden characters and secret actions were not so hidden or secret. Minis had to be placed on the tabletop, and secret actions declared in order to keep things fair. LoR allows players to have hidden characters in play without their opponents knowing they are there, as well as perform actions that the opponent doesn't know about. Imagine a hidden sniper waiting to ambush the opponent. This is all tracked and kept fair through the Command Console tablet app."*
"Characters gain experience and skills as well as obtain new equipment during battles."*
"In Lands of Ruin, the wastelands are populated by tribes. These unique and diverse cultures represent the different factions or alignments players join when they play the game. Each tribe has its own beliefs and goals, as well as fighting style and technologies."*
"Lands of Ruin is fully playable with just two heroes and their cohorts. However, adding more heroes to your tribe adds variety to the gameplay."*
