"Rising Sun is a spiritual successor to Blood Rage. Same artist, same studio, same sculptors. It's a game about honour, negotiation and warfare in a feudal Japan where the ancient gods (Kami) have returned to remake the empire. Where Blood Rage's distant ancestor is Risk, Rising Suns distant ancestor is Diplomacy. Negotiation, alliances and warfare. In my own style"

Also, a shot of the minis:

Coming from Cool Mini or Not. No news of a Kickstarter yet.

Wow, sounds great. I hope it supports a higher player-count than BR.

Posted in the other thread,

I wrote:
Eric Lang said in an interview from GenCon just now (if I can remember correctly) the game is in the same mythological "dudes on a map" type game where honor is what you want to get. But the game is different enough from Blood Rage.

As stated above Diplomacy is the ancestor of the game so there are ways to form alliances with other players and you get bonuses, then you can backs tab them, however you do lose honor for backstabbing.

Taking a shot in the dark, I would say the similarity between Zombicide and the forthcoming Massive Darkness is about the similarity of Blood Rage and Rising Sun. Several similar mechanics but definitely has a few core differences to make it unique.

EDIT: https://www.facebook.com/coolminiornot/videos/10153890049957... 16 minute mark will be of interest

I can't see the relationship between Blood Rage and Risk. The both have boards (as do a great many board games). The both have plastic figures (rather than cardboard or wooden ones than many board games have). Is Zombicide descended from Risk, too, because it shares all of the same features and has dice, which make it *more* like Risk than Blood Rage...

When you play a lot of 2P, yes!

Rising Sun means more clan warfare and ancient gods!

About half the board game in existence can be "traced" to Risk or Diplomacy. Remember, it says "distant ancestor."

Greatly excited about this announcement.....falling flat with the 3-6 player count and the "Diplomacy" connection. Not that there is anything wrong with either....just that 97% of my gaming is either two person or solo....

It was Eric Lang himself, during a show he was a guest of during Gen Con, who said that Risk is an ancestor to Blood Rage.

I think, "ancestor" is the operative word, which can have a wide application.

In BR you earn points when enemies kill you. In RS you earn points when you kill yourself?
