Time is running out to back Reiner Knizia’s The Confrontation from Offworld Games on Kickstarter
This campaign introduces a digital adaptation of Reiner Knizia’s The Confrontation, set in a new and exciting fantasy world. The Confrontation is a turn-based strategy game pitting two players of Light and Shadow against each other with asymmetric forces and hidden units. Players craftily maneuver their characters into strategic locations to exploit weaknesses in their opponent’s position and initiate battles or play special cards to learn about enemy characters. Drawing from a limited hand of cards players try to win each battle while leaving valuable cards for future battles.
For Light to be victorious, the player must sneak the Prince to the Shadow Stronghold. Shadow, on the other hand, is tasked with finding and defeating the Prince (Or moving 3 characters into the Light Capital).
Like many of Reiner’s other designs, The Confrontation can be played casually between beginners or as deeply as master level chess: it’s up to you and your opponents!
This is a computer adaptation of a game by Reiner Knizia and will be available for PC, Mac, and iPad, featuring local AI opponents and realtime online multiplayer. A limited beta will begin for desktop platforms immediately after this Kickstarter with an iPad beta to follow thereafter.
They’ve also started the Steam Greenlight process. All desktop backers will receive Steam keys when the game is approved!
