When Julian Gollop, creator of X-com, comes to you for assistance you don’t say no. So with about two weeks to go on their Kickstarter campaign we did a little work to help ensure they met their goal. Given the short time frame and the game’s calendar colliding with Pax East it’s honestly unclear what impact we were able to produce but the important part is it was successfully funded and VGSmart is lined up to be the PR company for the game.
So what is Chaos Reborn? Chaos is a turn based strategy game based on the original ZX Spectrum classic from 1985. The idea of the game is that it’s all about chance, bluffs, and wizards. With a very limited selection of random spells per battle and a % chance to cast each, anything can happen. Every time you use a spell it’s gone forever, but it isn’t all random. For both creatures and spells you can affect the chance to cast by moving the law or chaos meter in the direction you want. The bluff mechanic comes into play when, at any time, you can summon any creature as if it were real as an illusion with 100% chance to cast. In return, an enemy wizard may dispel an illusion creature with the disbelieve ability, which does use his turn but instantly destroys the illusion (and does nothing if it is real).
Basically the game title says it all: It’s Chaos, Reborn. Find out more at www.Chaos-Reborn.com.
