Be aware, the land of Vaesen is not as we know it today, this is a land where the myths are real. A cold reach covered by vast forests, its few cities lonely beacons of industry and enlightenment where a new civilization dawning. But in the countryside, the old ways still hold sway. There, people know what lurks in the dark. They know to fear it…
The Vaesen RPG Core Rulebook has launched on Fantasy Grounds and Steam, fully integrated with the VTT platform, with online maps and diagrams, player handouts ready to share, online character sheets, customized virtual dice roller, and more.
Vaesen is written by praised game writer Nils Hintze, based on the work of the acclaimed illustrator & author Johan Egerkrans. The game offers a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore. The game mechanics use an adapted version of the award-winning Year Zero Engine created by Free League Publishing.
Vaesen – A Wicked Secret & And Other Mysteries offers four strange mysteries: The Silver of the Sea, A Wicked Secret, The Night Sow and The Song of the Falling Star. The adventures are all playable on their own or as a part of a longer campaign for brave investigators that dare to stare into the darkness. Check it out on Fantasy Grounds and Steam.
Wizama has announced today another licensing deal with leading German game publisher, Ravensburger for SquareOne. SquareOne is a gaming console that combines the best of traditional board games and video games into one system. With the license, Ravensburger family games will be transformed into a new interactive experience, combining the best of what physical and digital gaming has to offer. The SquareOne console which will include top Ravensburger games is available now for the next three weeks via Kickstarter.
Specifically, two leading board game titles from Ravensburger, Labyrinth and Ramses will be featured on SquareOne. Labyrinth is a puzzle-solving game for children and adults where players move around the shifting paths of the Labyrinth in a race to collect various treasures. Ramses is a family board game where players try to find the hidden treasure under the moving pyramids in order to become the winner.
Ravensburger is another key milestone in the young history of licensing partnerships Wizama is currently negotiating for SquareOne. The company recently announced licenses with other leading game brands such as Urban Rivals and Cthulhu Wars. This is just the beginning for SquareOne and the potential the console is bringing to the market. Wizama plans to continue to add to their diversified game options come the official launch of SquareOne next year.
Wizama’s SquareOne is available now and those that are interested are encouraged to support via Kickstarter. The SquareOne Kickstarter campaign will run for three weeks until its official launch in 2021.
Wizama has launched their Kickstarter campaign for SquareOne, the latest gaming console to blend board games and video games. To coincide with the launch, the company has also announced exciting licensing deals with Urban Rivals and Cthulhu Wars as both games will be featured on the system. SquareOne is available now for the next four weeks.
Urban Rivals and Cthulhu Wars are hugely popular games with extremely strong followings within two very distinct sectors of gaming. Urban Rivals is a fan favorite, multiplayer, virtual trading card game. Now for the first time, Urban Rivals, the virtual card game will transform into a board game through the SquareOne system. Cthulhu Wars is a fast-moving RPG strategy board game about the end of the world that features monster figures. With SquareOne, Cthulhu Wars will now look, feel, and play more like a video game, offering a new and unique immersive experience. These are just a few examples of the diverse games SquareOne has to offer and the potential that the console is bringing to the market.
In addition to this, the SquareOne console includes original creations with authors and studios such as Crystal Bay (Roberto Fraga), Broken Thread (Thomas Russier), and Element Fight (EODE Studio). Wizama also has its very own studio dedicated to developing new and exciting games in-house. The system even offers games on demand, where players have access to a large selection of all types of games available directly on the SquareOne console. Furthermore, SquareOne comes with 15 traditional board games and dice games fit for the whole family.
Wizama plans to cater to all ages whether that be sharing a game with your kids or competing with your best group of friends. The console will provide a range of games that are perfect for large gatherings. The SquareOne system is inspired by traditional board games while also infusing the perfect amount of the video game experience. SquareOne is the first of its kind and allows you to experience your favorite games like never before.
Unlike other gaming consoles, it doesn’t require additional devices like a TV or computer to play and you don’t need game disks, smartphones, or additional applications to play either. Making it super convenient to play with your kids or friends around the same table. The product, which was first unveiled last year, also won multiple awards including, the CES Innovation Awards 2019 in “Gaming”.
The board’s surface is a large touchable screen with movable borders that increases the playing area depending on the game. The game board sits vertically, which allows for players to experience virtual gameplay while also enforcing the human connection of traditional board games. Watch each board game come alive with the built-in touch screen, and its connected objects including cards, dice, figurines and the world’s first connected dice track that enable players to both physically and digitally interact.
Users can also accessorize the smartboard, with the overall border of the device being fully customizable. You also have the option to save games and resume your play whenever you please. To become completely immersed, the SquareOne board includes high-quality audio speakers for sound and music during playtime. Furthermore, you will be able to play together remotely with your favorite game partners wherever they are.
