20% Off Mission Pack 1 In Steam Winter Sale




In the Steam Winter Sale you can now get 20% off the first Mission Pack for Siberian Dawn.

Training Run in the free base game only scratches the surface of SIberian Dawn to give you a taste of the game but Mission Pack 1 gives you the full Core game with 18 extra unique units, 3 larger missions and the Bond system that gives you the choice of a Guild to have contact with and with that a whole new unique set of cards that you can gain. So much more than the base game, with the full tactical and narrative elements available for you to test your skills.

So get out there this Christmas and save the innocents of the Union from the threats of the Dawn.

Have a happy holiday and get ready for more to come in 2019.

Training Run Update



Introduction

Another new update today. Currently busy redoing Orientation to make it easier for new players to get into the rules of the game but that is going to take a little while as I want to get it right and there are a couple of other changes beyond this that also need doing, but here we have a small update that adds a couple of things.

Training Run Expanded Objectives

Training Run now has 2 additional Objectives added before the final Objective to make the Mission path clearer, Recruit Grunt and Deploy Grunt. Just having 1 Objective originally might have left the layer wondering what they were doing and how to get to that Objective, but adding the new Objectives before that one will hopefully give the players a clearer path to start the Mission.

Updated Training Information

Orientation and Oversight have been updated so they match the various changes I made in the Intuitive updates, for things like the red pods and displaying Event recap.

Next

Still have more to add to the game but want to get the parts that help the player the best they can be first, then it is on with Mission pack 2 and beyond.

About This Game

Overview


Siberian Dawn is an original, solo, digital card game that combines the core soul of a deck builder with the tactical power of a war game and the strategic challenge of crisis management.

You are an Overseer in the Union, one of the tactical controllers who has to deal with the increasing dangers facing the Union through Objective based Missions. Recruit and deploy Units, enlist the help of the Guilds, and build your Bond with those in the shadows, whilst trying to control the conflict unfolding before you.

The basic Training Run Mission is available for free with the base game, to give you a taste for how the game works, and the first Mission Pack available as DLC adds the full Core game and first 3 Missions of the Siberian Dawn story.


The World


In Siberian Dawn you play the part of an Overseer in the Union, an industrial state covering what we know as Europe. Overseers are the tactical experts of the Union and responsible for quickly dealing with troubles as they arise using a limited resource pool, controlled squad level force, and possible support from the Guilds. Siberian Dawn has a heavy character driven setting, in a gritty near future military world that mixes in medieval and supernatural horror elements to the theme.

The game starts as hostility has been growing in Industrial Habit IH-54 of the Eastern Zones for the last few weeks. Outcasts are rumoured to have been stirring up this dissent and it is believed they are connected to a cult called the Dawn, Overseers have been assigned to deal with this unrest and you are one of them. Each Mission will give the Overseer a series of Objectives to complete which have variety and offer the Overseer different challenges during the Mission. Missions will be playable individually but also form a narrative story as the Overseer uncovers the truth of the Dawn and how deep secrets go within the Union and Guilds.


Training Run


This free, base game contains the Training Run Mission, a special Mission aimed to give you a taste of Siberian Dawn and the basics of a Mission. The single Objective in this Mission is to kill the 4 VBots, the Missions in Mission Pack 1 and those to follow will contain multiple Objectives offering a longer more challenging game. Training Run also contains 2 Units, the Grunt and the Scribe. The Grunt is your basic Union military Unit that will be used to attack the VBots, and the Scribe is a Guild support Unit who will help you gain Glory. Mission Pack 1 adds 18 new Units to these 2 basic ones.


Lore Engine


Siberian Dawn is the first game to use the Lore Deck Building Engine, taking the core of a Deck Builder and adding the depth of a War Game to give the player a more strategic challenge.

Dual Deck Development – Build a Resource deck and Tactics deck.
Bond System – Adds 1 of 4 Guild specific contacts in a Mission (Available with Mission Pack 1)
