Hybrid RPG board game
« on: July 04, 2019, 11:03:20 AM »
Hello!

We are Arkada Studio a French start-up and we are developing our first RPG board game supported by a vocal Artificial Intelligence: Erune. We will launch a Kickstarter campaign next October so we hope you'll enjoy this post!
Erune is a modern tribute to classics from the 90's such as HeroQuest and Dungeons and Dragons, we added a modern touch via a vocal app: The Spirit of Erune.

The Spirit seconds the Game Master and provides the game with a whole new interactive dimension:
1. The A.I knows the rules. No need to read a huge rulebook anymore, just ask the Spirit! Open the box and start playing, 10 minutes are enough to get you started. What are the elves weapons? How many HP does this goblin have? Ask the Spirit and prepare to fight!
2. The A.I portrays all NPCs players might encounter, thus allowing a direct interaction with them. Will you free the prisoner or tell Erune to keep him in jail? Careful, your choices will affect the whole story!
3. The A.I launches random events at the term of each round. Neither the players nor the Game Master knows what kind of event the A.I will launch, it's a total surprise and everyone has to play along with the Spirit of Erune's wishes.




1 to 4 players portray the heroes of Erune : a dwarf, a wanderer, a sorcerer, and an elf. Players will have to team up in order to survive the epic quests of Erune and maybe defeat the dark Sorcerer unless they choose to join the forces of evil. Each character begins with special abilities and weapons, you can evolve between quests, purchase new weapons or unlock powerful abilities until you become the mightiest hero in Erune.
The fifth player is the Dungeon Master whose mission is to guide the players throughout the story and to play all enemies the heroes will face. The Dungeon Master also has secret missions to accomplish during a quest in order to unlock new monsters.
