San Diego, CA (February 15th) IDW Games and Taberna Jogos announces Galaxy Hunters, a game of giant robots and massive monsters. This sci-fi worker placement game puts players in the role of mercenaries hired by Megacorps to hunt and harvest rampant mutations. Featuring an inventive pilot and mech combination system that unlocks new abilities and powers, Galaxy Hunters is a blend of crafting a unique character with the strategy of euro-game style worker placement.
Designed by Daniel Alves, Galaxy Hunters lets 2-4 players dive deep into piloting their mech to fight against giant monsters and harvest the beasts for resources and money. Players upgrade their mechs with new weapons and items, giving them the ability to personalize their mech’s combat style while facing increasingly difficult monster mutations. It will take the galaxy’s best weapons, armor and wits in order to become the most renowned Galaxy Hunter. The game includes 4 Mega Mech figures, 14 ship miniatures, 4 player boards and a whole galaxy of cardboard tiles and game elements.
Jerry Bennington, VP of Product Development said “We are excited to be working with Daniel, who is well known and respected game designer in Brazil, and look forward to bringing his game to the states. The art is outstanding and the miniatures are fantastic. We can’t wait to see people playing this massive game.”
Galaxy Hunters is coming to Kickstarter on March 28th, and will be available in stores in August 2018.
