An expandable board game with three races to assemble the winning army. Having sophisticated and deep game mechanics, Golem Arcana still managed to keep fast-paced gameplay. Due to all record keeping being handled by the Harebrained Schemes’ TDI stylus (tabletop digital interface) and mobile App, the game will move quickly and accesses a wide audience.
As with any tabletop game, players will assemble their army by combining attributes and special actions that will let them put their attack plan into an action.
Golem Arcana Races
Golems are a giant magical race which every army will consist off. Constructed of branch, stone, and bone which are mastered in a battle by combat Mages. They can crafted in four size classes including War Sprite, Ogre, Titan, and Colossus. Each Golem will be accompanied by its master, either a Blood Knight or a Golem Knight.
Mages – they master Golems and will accompany every single one that is present in player’s army. Mages are presented in the game as digital characters within the mobile App.
Ancient Ones have sculpted the world of Golem Arcana and crafted Golems. Although much of their knowledge has been lost, the important one explaining how to craft a Golem has been preserved. Ancient Ones have supernatural powers that they can call upon.
Golem Arcana is one of the first tabletop games that will be digitally enhanced. Game rules will be encoded into the App meaning those rules will be universal for everyone. This lets players to fully concentrate on the task in hand. Planning a strategy, deploying attacks, and ultimately winning the battle. You can have a look at the Golem Arcana’s rules just keep in mind this is not the final version.
The Tabletop Digital Interface Technology
By using a small infrared camera a TDI stylus is able to read microcode which have been printed over the top of the icons, values, and every other thing considering the Golem Arcana game. This microcode is invisible to human eyes, but very visible to the camera that is used. TDI then transmits microcode its reads to the paired tablet or smartphone. Bluetooth 4 makes this possible and if by any chance your device doesn’t have one, you can get the Golem Arcana Adapter.
The Golem Arcana Base Game will have everything a player needs for a great two-player skirmish. Expansions on the other hand will make it possible to field larger armies, fight on larger battlefield, and play with up to eight players.
I was never much into tabletop games as rules always seemed extremely complicated. This title makes it all easy. Strategy needs a good amount of planning and when you are distracted by uncertainty of a rule or two, your track of thoughts might be lost. Not with this game though as it makes sure to give you all the time you need to plan your next attack.
