Orbtale, The Reventure Sequel, To Be A Board Game Via Kickstarter

Reventure, the "game of 100 endings," has a sequel, made by indie game developer Pixelatto, called Reventure: Orbtale. This game, however, is unlike the original Reventure as the studio has decided to depart from the format of making Orbtale a video game. Instead, the game will be a board game and is going to be crowdsourced for funding in a Kickstarter campaign starting Thursday, April 29th.

According to the press release for Reventure: Orbtale:

In Reventure, you play as a hero set on a quest to gather the 4 magical orbs, which legend says grant a wish to whoever can bring them together. There is a total of 12 heroes, and each of them has a unique ability; throughout your adventure, you will find more than 40 weapons and magical artifacts to face your opponents.

Reventure: Orbtale is a game for up to four players. Its simple, fast-paced gameplay allows the game to take about a half-hour to play. Other features include the following:

  • A simultaneous turn-based system, which eliminates waiting times between turns.
  • An easy "rock-paper-scissors" combat mechanic to ease the learning curve.
  • Automatic resurrection mechanics so no one is left out of the game.
  • Fast-paced and frantic playthroughs that last approximately 30 minutes.
  • Made with Card Creator, a card creation software developed by Pixelatto.
