When it comes to board games, I’ve always been one to gravitate towards games that can provide a good narrative. I guess that’s due to my love of RPG games like Final Fantasy, playing on Star Trek MUSHes and loving the whole concept of White Wolf (Vampire the Masquerade) and Dungeons and Dragons (Never played, but would LOVE to do a campaign).
So when it comes to a game designer, I gravitated towards Ignacy Trzewiczek from Portal Games. I mean I have Robinson Crusoe and some add-ons that they kindly sent free of charge and I have Imperial Settlers. So when the teaser for a new game ‘First Martians’ came out, I’m going to be interested to see how it looks. I certainly get a ‘We are new explorers and we are not alone as we first thought vibe’.
I wonder if there is going to be a prototype at the UK Games Expo?
Anyway, enough rambling – Here is the Teaser trailer for the game (Notice how it didn’t give away the entire plot *grin*)
Like a good story, I want to experience the highs and lows. I want to be lost in the narrative/story. Even if we lose, I want this game to make me think that “Yes, it was worth while”.
