I happened to see this in Nexus's catalog while looking at the Napolean information. Why have I not heard of this? Any combat game with minis gets me drooly zombie

It looks pretty sweet. Is Fantasy Flight publishing it in the States or someone else?


...Please tell me someone is publishing it here?

It did seem very weird that I happened to just stumble on this, which looks like it will be pretty sweet!

Um, they said somewhere that they were in the process of looking for publishing partners . . . but I don't remember where or exactly when that was (of course there's only a couple threads on the game, so it probably wouldn't be hard to find!)

I wonder about FFG though; it seems like this might compete a little bit with battles of westeros? Who knows!

I think this looks great, so far, though!

Yeah this looks really cool, I'm hoping they find a north american publisher, but I don't think FFG would be the right one either. I sure wouldn't mind if Z-man released it though!

If it competes with their own product, I suppose they'd rather be putting it out themselves than have someone else put the fire on them. And they've been the go to partner of Nexus for years...

That may be the reason for the delay though...I could see FF looking at it and seeing a competitor for Battlelore/Battles of Westeros....

Of Course, FF prints plenty of dudes on a map games like Conan and they published that as well.

At the moment, Nexus' plan is to release Magestorm directly to the US market as a publisher, and at GenCon we will have a booth to introduce it.

Future customer here.

PS You guys ever play the indie fantasy TBS game Dominions? Similar concept with the player acting as field general without micro-command of the troops and mages as mighty battlefield foes. Similar literature-wise to Steven Erikson's Mazalan series.

Which booth? This is definitely on my must-demo list, but Nexus isn't listed in the GenCon Exhibitor list.

Why have I not heard of this before? Apparently it's been out since 2006, and the info I'm finding online makes it sound very interesting indeed.

Turn back now Fortuna! Dominions (the multiplayer PBEM format, not SP) has sucked more time from me than any other game by a multiple of 100. Oh the wasted hours....

I figure Dominions, Civ IV/V, and whatever adventure/rpg game I might be playing (Dragon Age at the moment) will cancel each other out.
