Watch your Back: Week May 1 to 7

Finally, a relatively quiet week with just four planned game launches. Let's see what they are.


***


Euthia: Torment of Resurrection is going to receive an expansion called Fierce Powers. The Euthia base game is a massive sandbox-style 1-4 player overland crawler that can be played competitively or cooperatively/solo. You pick a character, equip them with weapons and skills, and set out to explore the land and fight enemies. The new expansion comes with new scenarios, monsters, map tiles, and a new hero. It is launching on Gamefound on May 2.

Personal opinion: The game is too big in terms of content for me but it sure looks enticing. If I had enough spare time, I might consider it.

Then we have Keresis: Quest for the Elements. This is a 1-4 player tile laying game in which you are a tribe leader trying to guide your tribe to lost shrines. You will be playing matching cards to place tiles on the board, sending soldiers and shamans to locations to collect resources, and invading the territories of your opponents. Solo rules haven't been revealed yet. It is launching on Kickstarter on May 3.

Personal opinion: I don't see anything of interest here.

Slavic lore-inspired cooperative adventure game Zerywia returns to Kickstarter on May 3 with a reprint and an expansion. You are playing as a hero who travels across the land to acquire parts of their personal saga. The game can be played as a campaign or as standalone episodes, and encounters are resolved by rolling dice.

Personal opinion: I like the looks of the game quite a lot but I'll wait for Zerbique to tell us if it's a good game once he receives it.

And last, according to Zerbique, Cards of the Dead: The Board Game is launching on May 4. This appears to be a 1-3 player deck building game set in a zombie apocalypse. That's all we know about it so far. We don't even have a picture.


Personal opinion: I generally like survival games but if the video game by the same name is an indication, the card game will have pixel art which means I'm out.
