Day job pays the bills, night job keeps the blood pumping. Life is made of cupcakes, naps and pixels.
I’m going to go ahead and blame my regular job on the lack of reporting for Mythic Battles: Pantheon, but I’m locked and loaded with an exciting press release for you! Due to life promptly punching me in both the face and wallet while at GenCon, I was unable to demo Mythic Battles: Pantheon, but if you are throwing Greek mythology at me in game form, I’m there.
PARIS, FRANCE (November 1, 2016): After more than a year in development and rave reviews from hundreds of demos at game conventions worldwide, Mythic Games and Monolith Entertainment announce today the launch of the Mythic Battles: Pantheon Kickstarter. The Mythic Battles: Pantheon Kickstarter is now live and runs through December 2, 2016.
Mythic Battles: Pantheon features a redesign by original Mythic Battles designer Benoit Vogt and game industry veteran Léonidas Vesperini, innovative game play for two-four players in both scenarios and skirmishes, highly detailed miniatures in scaled human, god and titan sizes and artwork by legendary fantasy artists Stefan Kopinksi, Paolo Parente, Guillem H. Pongiluppi and Loic Muzy.
“Players will be gods in the golden age of ancient Greece as they battle to become the new ruler of Olympus,” says Léonidas Vesperini, project manager of Mythic Games. “We’ve been developing Mythic Battles: Pantheon for more than a year and the result is a truly epic miniatures board game experience!”
The mighty Titans of Greek lore awoke and unleashed a massive attack on Olympus. While the Titans were ultimately defeated, the world was ravaged and the surviving Olympians now mere mortals. As the former Gods awake to a broken world, Mythic Battles: Pantheon begins their adventure through Olympus, Styx and the Labyrinth of Minos to regain the glory left decimated by the wrath of the Titans. Playing as Zeus, Athena or any number of Greek gods alongside an army of heroes such as Achilles and Hercules and monsters such as the Hydra, Cerberus and Medusa, in victory players will be a god.
Backers can support the publishing of Mythic Battles: Pantheon for a $99 God Pledge which includes the game’s base set with 37 highly detailed figures, 13 Character Dashboards with adjustable stat ruler, 10 engraved dice, 2 two-sided foldable game boards representing four battlegrounds (Olympus, Styx, Tartarus and Minos Labyrinth), one scenario booklet and 15 Omphalos gems. 1000 “Early Bird” backers will get the God Pledge at a $10 discount. All backers will receive a Kickstarter Exclusive Apollo, God of Art and Sun, 70mm figure with Character Dashboard and Activation Cards. The Mythic Battles: Pantheon Kickstarter will also offer a plethora of exciting add-ons, stretch goals, bonuses and other exclusive collectibles and items to enhance game play.
Mythic Battles: Pantheon is expected to release in hobby game stores worldwide in late 2017. For more information, visit the Kickstarter campaign now in progress.
