Will you do what it takes to lead your people in a world torn apart by war? Plaid Hat Games is proud to announce its next release, by designer Isaac Vega, City of Remnants! Currently in manufacturing and due out early next year, City of Remnants will have you and your friends building a dystopian city while fighting both each other and an oppressive government. City of Remnants can be pre-ordered today, and those who pre-order by December 7 will have their games airshipped to them a month in advance.
Hot rain falls down upon a cold, rotting city. Here the Yugai, a species of militant humanoids, leave the survivors of the worlds they have ransacked and destroyed. It is a prison and a work camp, a place for those who lived through Yugai invasion to live out their remaining years as slaves. This is Gatorum, the City of Remnants. In City of Remnants, players take on the roles of gang leaders, each one with their own unique qualities and motivations. Players will struggle to control the city, but only the winner can decide the city's future.
In City of Remnants, two to four players vie for power in a dystopian world. Many paths to victory lay before you. Bid for gang members who provide a variety of shady skills. Get an edge with weapons and other sundrys from the black market. Build districts that can provide you with advantages, production and income, but beware, because a greedy opponent might sweep in and take over the work of your own hands.
City of Remnants combines strong resource management, auction, and conversion mechanics with spatial tactics, assymetric player powers, area control and direct conflict. A variety of tools, different every game, are at your disposal to build up your gang and claim the city for yourself. But watch out for the Yugai police force, who will meddle with everyone's plans! Create your own path to victory with this outstanding debut game from designer Isaac Vega.
This game is currently being manufactured. Pre-order before December 7 and your copy will be airshipped to you a month in advance.
