UPDATE: I've talked my gaming group (my kids!) into playing through Somewhere In The Heavens...They Are Waiting. Warning: There are spoilers because well, the game has A LOT of hidden information to which only the Gabriel player will be privy. I suppose if you plan to only play the Gabriel character, you'd be safe to watch and enjoy. I also want to make sure potential buyers can see the depth of story and the detail put into the mechanics and flow of the action on the board. Either way, watching it or not, you can be assured of a fun experience that puts you in control of a Sci-Fi action-adventure game.
UPDATE: A printed Encounter booklet will ship with the game. This is in response to feedback and preference to printed materials over web-app driven games. You can download the Encounter Booklet now in the components section.
*Printed boardgame needed for full experience
Somewhere In The Heavens… They Are Waiting is a fully cooperative, action-adventure experience based on the beloved Mac computer game "Marathon", for 2 to 6 players.
It’s the year 2155 and a large asteroid is headed toward Earth. It’s estimated that the asteroid, dubbed Wormwood, will reach earth’s atmosphere in 24 days. Meanwhile, you are an officer aboard the Gryphon, an AI controlled space cruiser, when your employer alerts you of your next mission. It sounds simple enough. A standard security check on an abandoned nuclear power facility. You will slowly uncover truths that connect to the fast approaching artifact.
Players will use an action point system to navigate through space finding the necessary technologies needed to stop the asteroid. One player will play as the ship A.I., Gabriel, using a web-app to guide the 1-5 Officer players on planetary missions to accomplish the goals necessary to win. Officer players will acquire upgrades to their suits and weapons to fight against the threats attempting to keep the asteroid on its course. Missions will take you through space to industrial facilities, military strongholds, and alien architecture.
