Light Hunters: Battalion of Darkness
You are a mighty hero, whose name evokes glory and a prestigious destiny since birth. However, the Gods have punished and exiled you for your sins... but one chance remains.

Create your battalion and crush the opposing camp or be annihilated forever.

Light Hunters is a fighting card game played in teams, for 2 to 8 players and set into an unique Heroic Fantasy universe. It’s a turn-based game, with a duration of 15-30 minutes, in which the number of possibilities increase as the game progresses. The gameplay is simple to make it available to everyone without killing the strategic part.

Also if you’re attentive to the visual aspect of the game, you’ll be amazed by the design of Light Hunters, illustrated with India ink to create a light and dark atmosphere.

ELO Darkness
ELO Darkness is a new strategic player vs player boardgame which combines the depth of the card-driven mechanics with the theme of a 3-Lane MOBA Arena. The game aims to be a completely new tabletop perspective on MOBAs genre with a complex and engaging mechanism that relies on multi-purpose Hero cards and simultaneous action selection mechanics.

Players build their deck by selecting a Team of 5 Heroes which are divided in classes and are represented by special ability cards. The goal of the game is to advance step by step and invade the enemy base from one of the 3 different Lanes on the board. During the game players have to farm resources, build their Heroes buying special Items and carefully manage their hand in order to plan ganks and combat strategies.
