STEAMFORGED GAMES TO DEVELOP DARK SOULS BOARD GAME

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Steamforged Games is proud to announce we will be working with Bandai Namco Entertainment, developing an exciting board game for the Dark Souls universe.

 

As Dark Souls fans, we could not be more excited to be given the honour of developing a board game that embraces everything that makes Dark Souls the deep, compelling game experience that it is.

 

The Dark Souls board game will be launched on Kickstarter during April 2016.

While pretty amazing, one does have to wonder if them announcing it during the last day of March means it was a slightly early April Fools joke or not. You know, like Games Workshop's "left handed paintbrush" announcement.

 

Steamforged Games did hint at this on Tuesday 'though and haven't stepped up to debunk it with a big disclaimer yet. I suppose we'll all just have to wait and see.

I really want to believe that it's true. Guild Ball's a pretty good product. I've got most of the teams and the miniatures are positively gorgeous. Unfortunately now that means I'm going to put off preordering the hunter's guild team (in resin) for as long as possible in case they announce something more specific nearer the hunter's guild release date.

The project is set to launch on Tuesday at 8pm GMT.

 

The Steamforged Guys were apparently running demo games of the Dancer of the Boreal Valley encounter at Salute this weekend.

 

There's even a lovely video on Beasts of War here: http://www.beastsofwar.com/liveblogentry/dark-souls-board-game-coming-kickstarter/

While I wasn't able to make it there myself someone wrote a little review of the demo experience online here. http://www.polyhedroncollider.com/2016/04/dark-souls-board-game-preview.html

Interested in the game, but that hammer just looks stupid in my opinion. Didn't get very far into Dark Souls, keep meaning to go back to it (I blame minecraft).

Dark Souls of all the games that have enormous impractical weapons does among the best job of showing how dumb they are in general principle, and in using them effectively to convey a narrative. Smough, the hammer's wielder, is a completely unrefined cannibal who wishes to become a knight. As such he is given a huge impractical and crude weapon that only one as enormous as himself could even hope to wield.

Also the single most annoying boss in the game.

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      A new kickstarter from Crooked Dice. I've been following the publicity for this and it really appeals to me. Lots of very colourful figures and most of them are a nice change from the usual predictable gun-toting heavies. I've collected plenty of Crooked Dice figures over the years and always been very pleased with the quality.

      Story
      Welcome everyone to the Kickstarter campaign for Sun & Moon. Two highly detailed 1:20 scale (90mm) resin kits  cast in high quality resin. Sun Is roughly 100mm to the top of his head!
      Sun & Moon comparisment: Sun stands at nearly 100mm!!!
      This has been the project that has been the longest in the works and also our most expensive one to date! We could really use your help to bring these two kits onto the market so we do hope that you like what you see and will be able to back us and help us spread the word! :)
      Story
      Many years back, the idea to do some themed knights popped into my head and out of all of those, Sun & Moon were the ones that really stuck and kept coming back in my thoughts.  The idea to do two characters that are opposites of each other in every way really appealed to me. 
      Sun
      You have the Sun Knight, devout follower of the Sun God, a fiery and strong warrior with everything about him representing his deity. I can just see him painted in bright and warm colours that embody the very essence of the Sun!
      Moon
      And then you have the Moon Knight, a cool and brooding figure that operates under the cover of darkness, guided by the wisdom of the Moon Goddess. Very much a deadly warrior in her own right! Painted in moody hues that represent the colours that only moonlight can shower the world in.

      Nice models and one of the SG is a 20% discount on the Kimera Colors range (They will open a pre-order for their "almost-impossible-to-buy" colors at the end of April)

      Pretty straightforward, a lady with more or less clothes.

      Introducing "Misa, a Night to Remember"! 
      On our store there is already an alternative version of Misa. In this project we decided to make it with more accessories, and through the objects, a different pose and always ... less dressed!
      She will be available in 75mm as well as 32mm scale, base and fullbody. By pledging you will receive the .STL files (unsupported and pre-supported) once the campaign has ended.
      So Happy 3D Printing everyone!
