Kickstarter Spotlight – Epoch: The Awakening

This week on Kickstarter Spotlight is a unique fantasy-themed strategic game with exploration, territory control and resource management elements, Epoch: The Awakening, that I have to admit I almost entirely ignored. I must have scrolled over this one on the Kickstarter page 2 or 3 times before finally giving it a click. Mostly due to the small box image and the grey tile that it sits on. It’s a shame though because am I ever glad that I did give it a look. The tiny thumbnail does no justice to the incredibly rich and detailed artwork, and the austere layout gives no hint to what appears to be a very dynamic and unique take on the fantasy adventure game. Particularly fascinating is the resource relationship between your potential, influence, and conviction, with your cubes needing to be moved from one to another to be used for various purposes. I also shouldn’t fail to mention the unique die cut card designs.

Do yourself a favour and don’t skip over this one.

Here’s the pledge video:
