PRESS RELEASE: “Aether Captains” Seeking Support On Kickstarter

February 11th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Are you a fan of steampunk themed games?  Enjoy blowing pirates out of the sky during airship battles?  Then “Aether Captains”, a game seeking your support on Kickstarter, may just be what you’re looking for.  This game is scenario-based, tasking one player with surviving against a wave of air pirates (who are controlled by the other players).  The player who takes up this challenge will get a mighty zeppelin filled with gun emplacements and other goodies, though the pirates will each have their own objective to complete.  “Aether Captains” is dice heavy and takes about twenty to thirty minutes to play.  Want to read about my experiences with the game?  Go check out my written preview before heading on over to the game’s Kickstarter page.

Alexander Argyropoulos from MAGE Company LTD offered the following:

Aether Captains i​s a steampunk themed, scenario ­based, asymmetric board game for 2 to 5 players. One player commands the mighty naval zeppelins of the Grand Compact. With your staunch crew of steam welders, engineers, navigators and gunners, you have been tasked by the Emperor to defend the Grand Compact from the merciless sky pirates. The remaining players command waves of attacking sky pirates, each with their own unique objectives which may pit them against any player when it results in the greatest profit for themselves. We are also happy to announce that the ship minis for the game are produced by Soda Pop Miniatures!”

You can learn more about and support “Aether Captains” by visiting its Kickstarter page, here:

UPDATE:

It appears that funding was cancelled shortly after the posting of this article.  According to the updates section of the Kickstarter page, the campaign will be relaunched in about a few months to give the developers time to refine some aspects of the game.
