Modiphius Entertainment is taking us back the to citadel, as they announce today the Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel is now live on Kickstarter.
Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel by designers Richard Borg with Eric M. Lang and Kevin Wilson, is an innovative reimagining of the original worldwide hit board game Siege of the Citadel, originally designed by Richard Borg and published by Target Games and Pressman Toys in the 1990s. This new edition reboots the classic with an A-List design team, balanced and updated rules, highly detailed miniatures and tiles.
Set in the Mutant Chronicles universe, the story takes players on a full-throttle dieselpunk sci-fi ride through a solar system beset by corporate intrigue and the invasion of a terrible dark alien force. With technology failing due to the insidious effects of the Dark Symmetry, humankind must fight back against the Dark Legion hordes while dealing with mutiny and conspiracy within. Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel takes place during one of the great wars against the Dark Legion as humanity musters the greatest army under Cardinal Durand and the DoomTroopers of the Cartel to assault Alakhai’s terrifying Citadel.
Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel will be a massive boxed miniatures board game featuring 40 new sculpts, new double-sided tiles, new rules and new creatures. This 2nd edition of the iconic techno fantasy board game returns with original designer Richard Borg (Memoir 44), with Kevin Wilson (Descent), Eric Lang (Blood Rage) and Jay Little (X:Wing), as well as artist Henning Ludvigsen (Imperial Assault, Decent, Mansions of Madness), renowned Bauhaus novelist Anders Fager, artist Stefan Kopinksi and sculptors Gael Gaumon, Valerio Terranova led by Paolo Parente. The Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel launches today with Pledges, Stretch Goals and other exciting plans to expand the gameplay.
“The making of Mutant Chronicles: Siege of the Citadel has brought together an amazing line-up of A-list designers who were chomping at the bit to create a second edition of this fan-favorite game, We can’t wait to bring this classic game to a new generation of gamers.” – Modiphius’ publishing director Chris Birch
