Do you like dice? Are you a fan of table top games, role-playing games and collectible card games? Then Dicetiny: The Lord of the Dice is the game for you.
Dicetiny is the inaugural game by development studio, Fakedice. The company has just launched their Kickstarter and is asking for $30,00 CAD (Canadian dollars) to release the project.
Dicetiny is a four-player digital board game that mixes RPG and CCG elements together. Players move using dice and use skill cards to battle against monsters and bosses. Each level takes place on a specific board environment where various events and quests are hidden. Like typical RPG/CCG fashion, the player will be able to earn random cards which can be used to build his or her own card deck and level up their characters.
At launch you’ll be able to play as a human, elf, dwarf, and gnome. The starting classes you’ll be able to choose from are: warrior, cleric, mage, and rouge. Dicetiny will be playable from one to four players, and will feature an online co-op mode.
Game play is simple. You move by rolling the die and then resolve whatever happens on the spot you land. One of the neat things about Dicetiny is that you never know what’s waiting for you on a spot until you step on it. This means that even on the same board, you will experience different events every time you play. This will add to the game’s replay value.
You’ll also be able to buy cards which will help your hero out in battle. There are two types of cards. Common cards, which can be used by all classes, and class-specific cards. You will be gaining cards by killing monsters, collecting treasure chests, or by buying them from the shop.
If the Kickstarter is successful, Fakedice expects it to take about 12 months to complete the game. That would mean there would be an estimated release date of October 2015.
So who are Fakedice? Fakedice is a Korean indie game developer consisting of seven members. As of now, the developer is currently focusing solely on PC game development.
Dicetiny: The Lord of the Dice will be releasing for PC. If you pledge at least $15 you’ll get a copy of the game. In the future (depending on funding) the company would like to bring the game to Linux, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. If the campaign really knocks it out of the park, Fakedice plan to release DIicetiny as a physical board game.
So far, the campaign has raised $11,329 and has 25 days to go.
