For a few years, we’ve been messing about with the idea of creating a game which mixes the game mechanics of Go with a multiplayer environment and some other infusions from games like Catan and even Diplomacy.
Go is pretty much impossible to improve as a game – the rich mix of strategy and tactics has a perfect balance that has stood the test of time. It is a challenge though to play socially since it’s rigidly a two player game. Further, it can be hard to access for the casual player.
So we’ve been trying to craft something new which can best be described as “a multiplayer strategy game inspired by the Go game mechanic”. We’re adding a storyline and artwork as well.
Right now we’re getting feedback on the game and planning to see if it makes sense to launch a Kickstarter!
We have officially announced our name for the game. Check out the blog post!
