... K I'll bite. Can we please get some more info for this game? I'm really interested and am hoping it is on the lighter side in regards to time and money.

We'll tell and show more in the coming months, but I can already say the game is less than an hour, and should be less than 40€.

I can tell it's a tactical brawling game using dice, with a clever preliminary phase where you bid with your character's HP to get the best gears (Weapon, Armor, Mount & Spell). During the fight, your 4 pieces of equipment will be activated with 7 dice, and will allow powerful combos (providing you made the right choices during the first step of the game ). Whenever a Hero dies, whoever has the most HP wins the game.
It's really really fun, and we had incredibly good feedback so far. The game has a LOT of replayability, as there are more Equipment cards in the box than needed to play, and the board's setting (size, columns, traps, healing fountains…) is modulable.

That sounds absolutely amazing! Release date confirmed yet? I had saw some site (can't remember which) say April, but I haven't seen anything else to support that claim.

We should be able to release the game in April in France, but I don't think it will hit the store in English before June… blush

Okay, sweet!

Other random question, the characters we play as: Are we playing as gods? Demi-gods? Just random heroes/fighters? And are they minis or cardboard standees?

Players are Champions from different mythologies (Greek, Aztec, Nordic, etc.) fighting each other to entertain their Gods. We went for cardboard standees to keep the price tag low (around 30€) and to use the awesome art by Paul Mafayon.

IELLO is a GREAT company and so of course I'm interested in this game however I immediately pause when I read combat is dice based. Are there any gameplay elements to help mitigate bad roles and keep the game from just being random rolling?

Thanks for the kind words! There are generic actions you are able to use with pairs of the same face. However, part of your strategy should be bidding for cards that give you a variety of symbols, so you're not stuck trying to roll one die face. The rules are posted on the game page if you wanted to read more about gameplay!
