Description Edit | History

Omaha Beach, June 6th, 1944. As the American troops land in Normandy, a German machine gun nest is killing them like flies...

You must do something!

In D-Day Dice, players are soldiers trying to organize improvised units for an attack against the machine gun nest. Each player starts the game with a unit of a few soldiers and nothing else. As the game progresses, he will collect resources and advance on the beach, sector by sector, as his unit grows stronger and deadlier. He will succeed... or die trying.

D-Day Dice is a multiplayer co-op game, where all players play their turn simultaneously and must help each other in order to stay alive. It also includes solitaire optional rules.

Although built around dice rolling, this game is about resource management (soldiers, specialists, items and courage) and knowing when to move your unit. Resources are kept from turn to turn, so the players can plan ahead (and help each other out).

The Free Trial Version of the game includes 2 Battle Maps ("Exercise Tiger" and "Omaha Beach"). The commercial version will include 8 of them (and a lot more features).

The commercial version of the game, coming out in March 2012, can be found HERE.
