The 5-man League of Geeks studio loves tabletop games, and they want to make Armello a fun game in that style that is still great for iOS. Players control one of four animal races, trying to capture the Armello castle in the center of the board, battling by digitally rolling dice and playing cards. The game was prototyped for 8 months on pen and paper, trying to make the game work as an actual physical game, before they started work on the digital game, and trying to create a lush and detailed world for the game to exist in. Single-device multiplayer will be there, and there are plans for a hybrid live/turn-based multiplayer akin to Ascension. This one is still a ways off, possibly available late this year, but League of Geeks says it will be ready when it’s ready.
