Square Enix Collective is the publisher behind Cardboard Utopia’s tactical RPG Children of Zodiarcs. The game launched for PlayStation 4 and PC today. Children of Zodiarcs is a result of a successful Kickstarter campaign that managed to pull in more than a quarter of a million dollars.
Children of Zodiarcs is an adventure game set in the fantasy city of Torus - "a world split down the middle between affluence and poverty. Players take charge of Nahmi and her fellow outcasts, striking back against the upper echelons of Torus using an exciting new deck and dice based combat system".
"The game tells the story of a band of professional thieves on the hunt for an ancient relic," says Jason Kim, Creative Director at Cardboard Utopia. "Their adventure sees them infiltrating the private chambers of one of the realm’s corrupt nobles, alerting Toran’s authorities and sending them on the run to stay alive".
Children of Zodiarcs is designed to be a blend of tactical action and card decks and dice that unlock special powers. Once you’ve chosen your attack, the dice will roll to unlock bonuses, delivering attack, defence, healing and special ability modifiers.
The game lets you craft your own dice to favour your particular play style as well. This allows for some diversity between the fights.
