Sniper: Legends of Italy is a 1-3 player action adventure game planned to launch on Kickstarter on November 5.
You play as a team of American sniper soldiers trying to complete specific objectives in a German military base in WWII Italy. These range from destroying enemy artillery, gathering information, locating a truck full of equipment, and killing Nazis or Mussolini along the way. The game comes with 4 missions that last around 90 minutes each. You can equip your soldiers with different rifle types and gear cards, and actions are powered by dice rolls. The crux of the game is to figure out the optimal way to reach your targets.
If you back Sniper in the first 48 hours, you get an exclusive Springfield rifle token. This is all the intel our reconnaissance team has managed to gather for now.
