Armello seeks $200,000 on Kickstarter for furry adventures

Armello is a gloriously beautiful affair combining dynamic RPG questlines with tabletop style adventuring. Take a peek.


In the works for a couple of years now via developer collective League of Geeks, the iPad, Linux Mac and PC title debuted on Kickstarter overnight, aiming for $200,000 to fund a team of five staff to bring it to fruition.

Armello is "a swashbuckling adventure that combines RPG elements with the strategic play of card and board games, centring on a personal, story-fuelled experience". The player takes on the role of a hero from one of four animal clans - rat, rabbit, bear or wolf - and navigates a procedurally-generated hex-based board in a quest to become king or queen.

Heroes are customisable, unrestricted by class, and the game features over 100 animated cards. Quests lines change every time you play, and local and online multiplayer adds to the replayability. Players can choose combat, diplomacy or stealth as they pick their way across the board - which has a full day and night cycle as well as multiple environments - claiming stettlements, encountering NPCs, collecting items and equipment and playing ability cards.

Singer songwriter Lisa Gerrard is on board, lending her distinctive musical stylings. Check out the latest trailer below, and play spot the gameplay footage in the Kickstarter pitch beneath that.
