v1.8 Shattered Kingdom is now live!



This is the announcement post for the Armello update, v1.8 Shattered Kingdom. You can find the update hub here.

Greetings all!

It’s a glorious day, as v1.8 Shattered Kingdom has emerged in Armello! Jump in RIGHT NOW! What are you waiting for?!

If you’re the type of human that wants all of the details, please feel free to check the full patch notes here. Along with the primary features that you can peruse below, we’ve done a lot of audio work and just generally tightened screws all over the place. We really hope you dig it.



The King has received some serious pampering with all of the trimmings like tantalising animations, delicious audio and sweet, sweet particle effects.

  • New Animations and Treatment for Endgame Victory Sequences: Spirit Stone, Rot and Prestige.
  • New Dusk and Dawn animations.
  • Updated animations and textures that demonstrate the King's degeneration in-game
  • Updated Combat Defence animation





Here we have some new cards! King’s Guard Armour favours characters with larger dice stacks and assists heroes in taking control of their fate, allowing a more reliable spread of useful rolls.

If you’re wondering, yes, like the Hare's Halberd all King’s Guards have this item equipped, and it will exist in the deck. This is an overall buff for King’s Guards, improving their defenses and further fortifying their role as blockers on the map.




Reaper’s Trident is a powerful Treasure that leverages Poison Dice in a big way. Pair this with other items that lock in Swords to cause the Poison Dice to resolve later, hopefully bypassing your opponent's shields.





Fury Mode is a fast paced, intense version of Armello available in House Rules. It’s less about carefully analysing the board for the most optimal play, and more about following your gut and taking action.


And a Few Extras...

As mentioned earlier, you’ll definitely note some audio love has been put into this update. Additionally, we have a fun little thing that some of you might like to play around with, you can now customise your “Classic Dice”. This will only work for your client and won’t be visible for your opponents.

Within the launch options for Armello in Steam, add the following lines to link to your own Dice textures and normal maps. Image file types that are accepted are PNG and JPEG. You can find some resources attached to this thread on our own forums.

-diceTexture "path"
-diceNormal "path"

Path example: "C:\Users\WordSlice\Pictures\MyCustomDiceTexture.jpg"

Please share your custom dice with us over on Facebook and Twitter!


There you have it folks. Thanks for being a part of our incredible community, no doubt the next bit of exciting news is just around the corner!


Cheers,

v1.8 Shattered Kingdom Feature Reveal - Fury Mode

This is a feature reveal for the upcoming Armello update, v1.8 Shattered Kingdom. You can find the update hub here.



Welcome folks!

Here we are, at the third and final feature reveal for v1.8 Shattered Kingdom. Today we’re going to talk about an important new House Rule, Fury Mode. Here are the larger elements of this enormous house rule.

  • Very short turn times
  • Turn timer pauses in combat and perils
  • Burndown timer reduced in combat and perils
  • A short card draw timer applies per card
  • Questing / Hidden encounter timer is no longer independent, and instead adds time to your current turn timer
  • Shortened King’s Declaration timer
  • Shortened transitional sequences and AI animations
  • Instead of resetting the timer, taking actions grants seconds to your current turn.
  • Visualisation implemented for turn timer adjustments
  • Timer is visible at all times

Fury mode will be a fast paced, intense version of Armello. It’s less about carefully analysing the board for the most optimal play, and more about following your gut and taking action. We’ve found that players are pushed to more effectively utilize their off turns for card play and planning.

As you know, we’re working towards releasing Armello on tablets later this year, and it’s possible that Fury Mode will be the primary way to play multiplayer on tablets. This is merely the first iteration and we know there will be room for fine tuning. We’d really love you to take it for a spin and share your thoughts with us! How would you feel if this was the standard way to play Armello?

There you have it, v1.8 Shattered Kingdom is landing tomorrow and we’re pumped. Keep an eye out for the full patch notes to hear about the rest of the changes that are coming! Naturally we’ll have more exciting Armello / LoG news shortly.


Cheers,

<3 Darcy and the LoG Squad

Reviews

“This is a digital board game that exists somewhere between the island of Catan and the land of Studio Ghibli.”
Polygon

“Armello is a digital board game, and it's very much the genuine article.”
Eurogamer

“It's like Game of Thrones, only with animals.”
Kotaku

Feature List

  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Armello is an intuitive game, easy to pick up and experience but with deep and emergent strategy. Full release will include a tutorial mode.
  • Fast & Thoughtful - Adventuring in Armello is fast-paced fun but filled with deadly tactical and politically complex decisions requiring careful forethought and planning.
  • Multiple Playable Heroes - Full release will include 8 playable Heroes. Each unique Hero possess a special power, stat line and Ai personality. Also heroes can be customised with Amulet and Signet Ring load-outs to match your play style or counter an opponents strategy.
  • Dynamic Sandbox - Armello features a gorgeous dynamic world which procedurally generates a new map each and every game, complete with a dynamic quest system ensuring no two games of Armello are ever the same.
  • Turn-Based Day & Night Cycle - Armello features a fuzzy turn-based system, cycling between Day and Night phases. The fuzzy turns allow you to still play cards and do certain actions when its not your turn, and when it is you use Action Points to move around the hex board.
  • World Class Music & Audio - By Michael Allen, internationally acclaimed artist Lisa Gerrard, Stephan Schutze and Jacek Tuschewski.
  • Animated Cards - Armello will feature over a 120+ beautifully animated in-game Cards, from artists all over the world.
  • True Tabletop Feel - We spent months making sure we cherry-picked the best parts of the tabletop experience, like our custom physics-based dice!

About This Game



Armello is a grand swashbuckling adventure that combines three styles of play; The deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top board games, combined with a character role-playing system.

As a hero from one of the clans of Armello, you'll quest, scheme, hire agents, explore, vanquish monsters, cast spells and face off against other players, with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. The Kingdom of Armello is as dangerous as it is beautiful, perils, banes and bandits hide around every corner and a spreading corruption known as the rot is leaving no creature untouched.

Armello is League of Geeks’ attempt to revolutionise digital board and card games, whilst providing players a rich world within which they can craft their own stories of epic adventure. The aim was to create a rich game full of backstabbing, close shaves, shattered alliances, ruses and empty promises - a perfect game to play with your friends.
