Game Jam Results + New Models

2D Print, 3D Print, Game Jam 2020, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Today we’re going to be highlighting a couple of cool games from the game jam, and we’ve also got some new 3D print and 2D paper models for you. Oh, and a little teaser at the end…


Game Jam Results

This year’s game jam was a great success, with 65 participants creating 23 awesome games, we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out (especially for a first try)!

Now that everyone has had a chance to check out and rate the various games, we wanted to highlight a couple of them that we found particularly interesting. These are not the “best” games or the “winners” of the jam, but simply some of the games that sparked our imagination.

You can check out the top rated games by the community here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2020/results

Now then, let’s get on with it!

The Night of the Hunt by Joe Fonseca

The Night of the Hunt is really interesting because it takes the concept of asymmetric design and really runs with it, whilst also remaining enough in familiar territory that it’s really intuitive to play. Since this was the top rated game of the jam we’ll be diving deep into what makes it so awesome. :D

One player takes the role of the monster, a single powerful entity set out to cause mayhem in town, whilst the other player controls a group of hunters that want to rid the world of this evil.

There are lots of cool features in this game, such as the varied objectives available and the high level of customization for both the monster and the hunters, but the most interesting feature is how different the monster plays from the hunters.

This is because whilst the monster is alone, it starts out with a lot of information that the hunters don’t have, making for a tense game of cat and mouse. The monster starts out in a hidden state, with no model on the board, and controls its movement and actions by noting them secretly on a piece of paper. In the meantime the hunters are going around trying to find him before he completes his secret objective.

It’s this disparity of information that leads to some really interesting situations, with the monster hiding in the shadows and then jumping out to devour a hunter before hiding again. Really exciting stuff!

We can imagine it being very interesting to try out the game with multiple players each controlling a hunter, or even adding in a second monster for more mayhem.

Super cool game, definitely give it a try: https://rabid-tucan.itch.io/the-night-of-the-hunt

Mechanichrome by Aaron Richardson

Mechanichrome also executes beautifully on the concept of asymmetric design, but takes it in a very different direction, with one player taking control of a band of explorers, whilst the other player acts almost as a GM, preparing the ruins with traps and using the guards that protect the data treasure.

What makes this game really interesting is that almost everything is controlled via a deck of cards, from exploring new parts of the ruins to attacking or grabbing treasure, and the interactions between the cards can add really interesting twists to how the game plays out.

Add a high level of customization of explorer stats as well as lots of different guard types and other threats, and you’ve got yourself an exciting game of exploration and high stakes combat.

Grab yourself a deck of cards and check it out: https://ansr-games.itch.io/mechanichrome

Super Ranger Squadron by StarHunter Blue

Super Ranger Squadron immediately caught our eye thanks to its colorful sentai setting, but actually ended up having us hooked to its suit-based card mechanics. The game has interesting asymmetric design with one player controlling 5 customizable rangers, whilst the other player controls endless waves of bad guys.

The rangers have special powers that are only activated when a specific suit is drawn, and their goal is to remove specific cards from their deck, lowing their overall strength but bringing them closer to their objective. The bad guy on the other hand has a random objective that he has to complete, whilst trying to stall the rangers long enough so that they can’t assemble all aces and joker.

This game is really interesting because everything is controlled via a deck of cards, and it also has lots of fun mechanics on top of that, such as the bad guys picking up rangers and running off with them. :D

Assemble your rangers and give it a try: https://starhunterblue.itch.io/super-ranger-squadron

0_xWgQ

Vostok by Erik C. Battle

Finally we’ve got to mention Vostok, which even though didn’t really follow the asymmetric design theme was far to interesting for us to pass by in this highlight section.

Vostok is a solo survival game set in a post-apocalyptic frozen wasteland. Players start off by creating a custom tribe and then set out to explore the wasteland during the day, and then do upkeep at night.

The game uses a really interesting 2D6 system for all of its actions, with the wasteland “reacting” based on the rolls, which makes for very tense exploration where every roll could bring out new dangers. Then during the night your tribe members advance their abilities, and they can even conceive children which grow up and can go out on missions as well once they’ve become adults.

This game is filled with interesting ideas, and we highly encourage the creator to keep working on it, because this could become something epic (feel free to drop us an e-mail if you need any advice).

23 New Games + New 3D Models

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Game Jam 2020, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Kyoushuneko Miniatures, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a TON of new one-page games for you to try, some awesome new 3D print models, an update for the Deep-Sea Elves and some new Quickplay Armies.


Play & Rate 23 New Games

Last weekend we ran the very first OPR Game Jam, which was a ton of fun and resulted in the creation of 23 awesome new games!

The theme for the jam was “Asymmetric Design”, which sparked a lot of cool and unexpected ideas, making for some truly unique games, so make sure to take a look at all of them (which should be pretty quick as they’re all one-page games).

jam games

Now that the jam is over we need everyone to check out the games and rate them, which is completely anonymous and open to the public, so even if you didn’t take part in the game jam you can still give your opinion.

The criteria for ratings are “Design”, “Originality” and “Adherence to the Theme”, and whilst there is no winner or prize, we’ll make sure to highlight some of the most interesting games in next week’s news post.

Check out the games here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2020/entries

We’d like to thank everyone that participated in the jam, and we’re looking forward to hosting a new one next year to see what crazy new games you come up with. :D

Note: If you want to help out games that didn’t get a lot of ratings yet you can filter by “least rated” or click on “submissions in need of ratings”.

Deep-Sea Elves Update

Thanks to a suggestion from our always helpful community we have updated the Deep-Sea Elves army with a lot of new units, bolstering their battle lines. Until now their army list was quite small, but with today’s update you can now field 10 new units!

These units were inspired by the Trident Realms of Neritica by Mantic Games, which feature a lot of awesome water and sea themed models. So if you’re coming over from Kings of War or are looking to grab a couple of new models, then this update is for you.

Fantasy-Deep-Sea


Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders – Quickplay Armies

Quickplay Armies are pre-made army lists designed to be ready to play out of the box, without the need to count point costs or create your own lists. They are the perfect thing to dip your toes into new armies and see if you like them!

There’s a big box of new models out there and we couldn’t help but come up with some lists for it to get you started. These lists feature some sneaky Wolf Brothers taking on a beefy list of Orc Marauders, making for some rather interesting gameplay.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders

Prime Brothers of the Wolf Detachment

  • 1x Captain w/ Counter, Camo Cloak, Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 5x Infiltration Squad w/ Counter
  • 5x Infiltration Squad w/ Counter

Orc Marauders

  • 1x Warlord w/ Ultra Armor, Twin Carbine & Ultra Claw
  • 5x Boss Mob w/ 1x Carbine + Heavy Flamethrower Attachment
  • 3x Ultra Bosses w/ 1x Dual Ultra Sawblades, 1x Twin Carbine & 1x Carbine + Heavy Flamethrower Attachment

The Wolf Brothers in this set are all about using Scout to control key regions and secure objectives early in the match. The list comes with a Captain with Camo Cloak that can hold his own, whilst the Infiltrators can use their Rending Carbines to take out heavily armored troops with ease. Don’t forget that everyone has Counter, so you can go toe-to-toe with the Orcs in melee.

The Orc Marauders on the other side focus on raw melee power combined with a hefty dose of Heavy Flamethrowers. The Warlord is a massive beast that can effortlessly take on entire squads, whilst the Utra Bosses can withstand sustained fire whilst they slowly move across the battlefield. Make sure to use your Boss Mob to strategically soak up some fire, and don’t be afraid to charge head-first into the enemy.

Grimdark-Orcs


That’s it for today, make sure to rate all of those awesome game jam games, and we’ll be back next week with the results. :)

Happy Wargaming!

OPR Game Jam 2020 is Live!

Game Jam 2020

oprgj2020

Hi everyone,

The first ever OPR Game Jam is now live, and the the theme will be:

ASYMMETRIC DESIGN

What does that mean you ask?

Asymmetric Design is a principle of game design where each player is given a different set of options and mechanics to play with, so that players don’t stand on even ground.

This could mean giving players different starting parameters, different levels of information, different abilities, different goals, or  just generally different rules.

Examples of games with Asymmetric Design (in no particular order): Evolve, Starcraft, Root, Vast, Descent, Netrunner, Mysterium, Star Wars Risk, etc.

If you want to see video examples of games with Asymmetric Design, check out these videos about Root and Vast (games where each player controls a faction with very different mechanics), as well as this video about How Games Get Balanced (which contains lots of examples of asymmetric games).

So, did those videos get you pumped up to design an awesome game?

Then head over to our Discord server to share your ideas: https://discord.gg/djBydgk

You now have 48hrs to design your game, and send in your submission by:

  • UK – 8PM BST Sunday May 10th
  • USA East Coast – 3PM ET Sunday May 10th
  • USA West Coast – Noon PT Sunday May 10th
  • Europe – 9PM CET Sunday May 10th
  • Japan – 4AM JST Monday May 11th
  • Australia – 5AM AEST Monday May 11th

Check out the Game Jam page for more info on submissions: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2020

Submission Rules:

  1. The game has to follow the theme.
  2. The game must fit on a single sheet, using the provided template:
    • The front page must contain all of the game’s core rules.
    • The back page may optionally contain rules on unit creation or special rules.
  3. Every game must be submitted along with the following:
    • A visual moodboard for the game. We recommend using BeFunky (it’s free).
    • (Optional) Pictures of you playing the game, the miniatures, the table, etc.

Please make sure to submit your game in .pdf format so that it’s easy for everyone to read it on mobile and desktop!

We have created an example game (not following the theme) for you to see what a correct submission should look like, and if you need more inspiration you can check out our one-off games to see how you can fit a full experience on just one page.

Finally we wanted to remind everyone that the most important thing is to create a game that has interesting mechanics and an engaging core gameplay loop, and not a perfectly balanced grand strategy game.

You could focus on creating a small one-off encounter for example (like a rowdy bar fight, or an exciting airplane dogfight), or maybe make a game that follows a short linear story. Either way, just try to make something fun to play, regardless of its size. :)

Happy Designing!

New Fantasy Armies

If you love Age of Fantasy then you’re going to love the three new armies we’re releasing today: Halflings, Havoc Dwarves and Shadow Stalkers.

Halflings are tiny humanoids even smaller than dwarves, and one of the most ancient races found in Tyria. Even though they might not look like strong warriors, they make up for their small size in luck and courage, so don’t underestimate them.

This army was inspired by the super cool models released as part of the TTCombat KS, as well as miniatures from other manufacturers available online.

Fantasy-Halflings

Havoc Dwarves are a faction of dwarves that have been corrupted by the havoc gods, and are now systematically razing one city after the next. Their bodies are covered in heavy armor sealed by the power of havoc, making them able to withstand even the mightiest of blows.

This army has been requested by fans for a long time and was inspired by the Mantic Abyssal Dwarves, as well as the FW Legions of Azgorh.

Fantasy-Havoc-Dwarves

Shadow Stalkers are elusive and nightmarish horrors that warp into being seemingly out of nowhere and haunt small villages all across of Tyria. Nothing is known about them except that they usually strike at night, and that their armies are lead by mighty pumpkin-head kings.

This army was inspired by the spooky Mantic Nightstalkers models, which feature everything from pumpkin-head scarecrows to cthulu-like monsters.

Fantasy-Stalkers


Campaign Rules Updates

After taking part in the recent Grimdark Future community campaign we’ve gone ahead and updated the Campaign Rules based on some of the feedback we got.

Here the changes:

  • Tweaked underdog rules to be a little more balanced
  • Added optional rules for playing without permadeath
  • Units can’t get the same level up trait more than once anymore

Fantasy-Generic


Miniature Releases for May

Now that April has come to an end we’re ready to give you an update on what miniatures are going to be released on Patreon this May.

Here you’ll find things such as a new tactical phase that’s played before the battle begins, or in-depth city fighting rules that simulate different aspects of urban warfare.

Grimdark Future Community Campaign

To combat quarantine loneliness and lack of wargaming we started a Grimdark Future community campaign on the forum: The Battle for Tarkanis.

The campaign is open for anyone to join, and we use the forum thread to track armies, share battle reports and more. You can take part in the campaign from home or play with us online using our Discord  server and Roll20  tables.

The campaign is played using the Grimdark Future Campaign Rules, and it will run for 2 weeks until the 26th of April, after which we see who wins!

That’s it for today, make sure to sign up for the game jam and tell everyone about it, and we hope you enjoy the new miniatures and armies too. :)

Happy Wargaming!
