Synergic Games’ Harakiri: Blades of Honor opens its Late Pledge

Harakiri: Blades of Honor, by the Spanish publisher Synergic Games, has opened up its late pledge on the Spanish platform Kick & Go. Four months after becoming the most funded dungeon crawler board game in the history of Spain on Kickstarter, Synergic Games offers the last chance to acquire the board game.

Set in a fantasy version of the Japanese feudal era, Harakiri: Blades of Honor offers an immersive cooperative dungeon-crawling experience for up to 4 players where the exploration of a huge and detailed map, along with epic and strategic combat against all kinds of AI-controlled enemies, will take the classic gameplay of the genre to a higher level.

The game features more than 80 fantastic miniatures by sculptors as important as Roberto Chaudon (Wizards of the Coast, DC) and Barruz Studio (Corvus Belli, Hellboy). They also included the tile designer Henning Ludvigsen (Bloodborne, Star Wars or Zombicide) immersing players in action packed epic battles.

All this will be accompanied by a narrative by the Spanish writer David Velasco. Velasco brings together all his accumulated experience in the dark fantasy genre to embark the players of Harakiri: Blades of Honor in an adventure that offers more than 50 hours of gameplay, where every decision taken could be crucial to stop the advance of the terrible tyrant, the Dark Shogun.

The wonderful art that accompanies the entire game is being done by artists like David Benzal (“concept artist” in Game of Thrones, Love Death and Robots, Ghost Recon or Jurassic World) and Björn Barends (“cover artist” in Hulk, Venom, Spawn or Moonknight comics).

This new chance to acquire the game will be open until the end of this year 2022, but during the first 3 months it will have exclusive discounts. This will be the last chance to acquire the board game that cannot be found anywhere else, and that won’t be hitting general retail. Harakiri: Blades of Honor is scheduled for release in May 2023.
