Why roll and write, when you can roll and FIGHT?
Mighty Boards is proud to announce the first real-time, roll-and-write game, where the frantic action around the table mimics the kick-arse fighting action in the game-world: Vengeance: Roll & Fight!
Set in the world of Vengeance and designed by Dávid Turczi, Noralie Lubbers and Gordon Calleja, Vengeance: Roll & Fight is a stand-alone game that transforms the fast-paced dice puzzles of the original Vengeance into roll-and-write mechanics where you’re building combos, striking off enemies and scoring points for an action-packed, brain-teasing fighting game that’s easy to learn and hard to master.
Players will pick one of the game’s iconic characters and lead them through enemy filled dens. Each character comes with their own signature items and abilities, which they combine in creative ways to create devastating combinations. Players will go through familiar dens finding old enemies who wronged them, and exact their revenge in balletic fight scenes.
Each game lasts 4 rounds and takes around 30 minutes in total. Each round is divided into four phases: the montage phase, the rolling phase, the fighting phase, and the evaluation phase.
- In the montage phase, you will heal yourself, buy items and abilities, akicknd prepare your character for the fights ahead.
- In the rolling phase, you will draft dice from a collective pool and try to roll, roll and reroll into your character’s abilities. Look out for enemy faces, which cannot easily be rerolled and will cause enemies to hit you back.
- In the fighting phase, you will execute your carefully laid out and hectically rolled plans. You will choose the order in which you execute your abilities, to strike foes before they can strike you back.
- In the evaluation phase, you will suffer your enemies’ punishments, while also reaping the sown vengeance’ rewards.
Vengeance: Roll & Fight comes in two boxes: Episode 1 and Episode 2. Both episodes are standalone games, however, each episode will feature different characters, different dens and different bosses to get through and having both will expand the player count from 4 to 8! The content of each box can be used with the other, creating endless possibilities and replayability.
While Vengeance: Roll & Fight is best played with friends, it also comes with its own solo mode with variable difficulty settings. Fulfill set objectives, while comparing point totals across different playthroughs using different characters. Between difficulty settings, different characters, and different dens and boss combinations, there is a lot of solo content players can get through.
The game will launch on Kickstarter May 11th.
