AUSTIN, TX, August 03, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Mythic Legions Tactics: War of the Aetherblade brings the world and backstory of the popular high-fantasy toy line onto the screen for the very first time in this action packed, turn-based strategy and tactics game. Funded in just under 4 hours, the campaign was quickly featured by Kickstarter in their "Trending" and "Projects We Love" categories. Now that the game is funded, backers will have the opportunity to unlock stretch goals that will add even more features to the game.
Fans of the Mythic Legions toy line and backers of a private campaign earlier this year have been involved in the game's creative decision-making process from the announcement of the project, including what type of game to make, which factions to include, and which character classes will be featured. New backers of the campaign will also have opportunities to be involved in the creative with future fan votes.
Created by the award-winning Four Horsemen Studios, Mythic Legions is a collectible line of customizable action figures set in the world of Mythoss, where the legions of good and evil are racing to find ancient, mystical relic weapons and battle for control of the realm. Already a breakout hit with toy collectors and retailers since 2015, Four Horsemen Studios and Great Hall Game Studios are now looking to bring this immersive world of heroic warriors, evil broods, and splinter factions to a new audience in the gaming community.
"We want to bring the deep storylines and character-base of the Mythic Legions property to life in a unique way that will deliver an immersive experience to our fans and introduce the world of Mythoss to new audiences. We feel that gaming is the perfect medium to capture what fans love most about the toy line, including the lore, the character customization elements, and allowing the community of Legionnaires worldwide to interact with this brand and each other in a unique way. With the formation of Great Hall Game Studios, a strategic partnership with Always Imagine, LLC, we're excited to introduce this as a first step in bringing Mythic Legions content to fans and seeing where we can go next." - Jim Preziosi, Co-Founder of Four Horsemen Studios.
The game takes its inspiration from classic Turn Based Strategy and Tactics titles that give players the power to make choices as they command an adventuring party through a campaign. We're putting an innovative spin on that classic gameplay by giving players the ability to play the storyline from different points of view, use unique attack modes and the ability to evolve and merge different classes of characters to form a something totally new. One of the coolest things we're excited about is the high level of character customization and accessorizing within the game, which is the DNA of the Mythic Legions toy line. Players will have the ability to fine-tune characters in the digital space in a way that will allow fans to take things beyond what they can do with the physical products. With the success of the Kickstarter campaign we can now introduce the multi-player version of the game and potentially expand to consoles if we meet the stretch goals." - Tony Hobdy, Development Lead, Great Hall Game Studios.
