Today see’s the launch of Mantic’s newest Kickstarter – Star Saga: The Eiras Contract.
Announced a mere 10 days ago, and much like is predecessor Dungeon Saga, this will see Mantic taking their highly affordable miniatures and easily accessible games play, crawling through tractless corridors and chambers – although this time in the dark forboding reaches of space.
In Star Saga: The Eiras Cotract players will take on the role of a team of mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a clandestine research facility – evoking shades of Star Wars and Serenity.
We can expect to see a lot more of the denizens that have thus far populated the previous Mantic Sci-Fi Universe – with images revealed already of GCPS Troopers, Mercs that look suspiciously like Rebs, Stage 3 Plague Victims, Chovar (large tentacled floating brains…) and, of course, the ubiquitous Blaine…
As ever, we can expect to see from Mantic a fast, easy to learn – but challenging to master – games system, that can find a welcome home on the shelves of veteran and novice gamers alike.
Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will hit Kickstarter on September 26th at 8:30AM EST, and run for 25 days
