UpRise

A message delivery, tug-of-war micro game for 2 players

UpRise is a game about revolution.

In order to start one that helps your cause, you must deliver important messages throughout the city. Each location sends and receives messages, but you must plan your messengers' deliveries to earn the most influence towards your cause.

Set in a fictional European town on the brink of civil unrest, your job is to use your highly trained bird messengers to both pick up and deliver important messages throughout the town. The messages may include Reports, Warnings, or a Call to Action, and each location will only be motivated to join your cause by receiving the right ones.

However you are not the only one recruiting for a cause, as your opponent spreads misinformation to further their goals. It's a race to the finish, so you must plan your messengers' routes carefully and efficiently.

Notes

  • This game contains a premium upgrade called UV Coating that makes the printed components more durable.
  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
