We’re very excited to announce that our Kickstarter for Golem Arcana, the next generation of tabletop miniatures games, went live TODAY! You can check it out HERE.
As we mentioned back in July, most of the Harebrained team continues to focus their efforts on fulfilling our commitments to Shadowrun Returns (more on that soon!), but a small group has been working on our new harebrained scheme – Golem Arcana. This game brings together Harebrained Schemes two passions – digital video games and tabletop games.
Golem Arcana is a digitally-enhanced miniatures board game that eases play with a free app that can be downloaded to iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The app serves as the game’s rule book and referee all in one. Plus, the figures come pre-painted and assembled. We’re hoping that this game will take down some of the barriers that keep people playing tabletop miniatures games and get people playing around a table with their friends again.
In August and September, we brought the working prototype of the game to both GenCon and PAX where we were able to demo Golem Arcana for over 600 people. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
Now, we are bringing Golem Arcana to Kickstarter. There’s tons of information on the Kickstarter page including images of the Golem miniatures, concept art by Kekai Kotaki, a gameplay mechanics video, testimonials from people who have played the game and, of course, early bird specials.
Thanks for checking it out and don’t forget to share it with friends who would also enjoy the game!
