Hybris: Disordered Cosmos is a 1-4 player worker placement game set in a fantasy world inspired by ancient Greek mythology. It will launch on Kickstarter on June 30.
In Hybris, you take on the role of an Olympian god. Primordials have been defeated and locked in the Underworld, and now, Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, Hades (and four more gods from the expansion) are trying to establish their dominion over the heavens and the world of the mortals. Solo rules will be included in the expansion that comes with the game, to be revealed during the Kickstarter campaign.
Each of the gods has their own special powers, and begins the game with a hero and a prophet. Each turn consists of four phases: first, you draft one 'divine pillar' card and place it on your player board. This gives you a special action and bonus. Then, you place your workers (hero and prophet) on the available locations on the board and perform the depicted actions. In the third phase, you can send a worker on one of the locations that are attached to the main board (these allow you to gain technology, go on mini quests or fight).
Developing technology lets you build cities, which will give you points and also help you unlock your special powers. When you have fulfilled the requirements of any of the enhancements on your player board, you unlock that enhancement and gain the associated ability. The game is won either by collecting the most victory points or by unlocking all the enhancements on your player board.
