While people are waiting for Petroglyph’s forthcoming MMORTS, End Of Nations (recognisable by there being sea there), there’s a whole other strategy game from the same developer that was released today. It’s Guardians Of Galaxia, a turn-based card game-cum board game strategy, the likes of which makes me feel a bit nervous. And it looks properly bonkers. And as Kieron pointed out last month, it’s a board game too! And it features fighting elephants.
The game describes itself like this:
Guardians of Graxia takes on the form of a card-based board game set in a floating island environment high in the sky of the Graxia world. Releasing with four powerful Guardians that will guide your armies into battle, charge onto the battlefield by laying out your forces strategically. Gameplay advances in turns by selecting new unit and spell cards to place and move on the tiled map surface. Ultimate victory is achieved by completing any of the numerous skirmishes, or by discovering the secrets of the Guardians in the game’s initial campaign!
Graxia is exclusively on GamersGate at the moment, where it’s a piddly £6.29. Which is surely worth a punt if you’re interested in the genre. Take a look at the brand new trailer below, too:
