In Journey: Wrath of Demons, a cooperative miniatures board game based on a classic Chinese novel, four Pilgrims band together to search ancient China for the Sutras, sacred scriptures that will bring salvation to a world overrun with Demons. After fighting different Bull Demon minions, the climax of the game is the battle against the Bull Demon King. Game cards and custom dice combine for fast, tense action and critical choices enhance the Pilgrims’ skills during the game. All components have been crafted to the highest quality, bringing the beautiful game world to life. Resin versions of the miniatures will be of special interest to painters and collectors.
Many games have science fiction or fantasy settings, but Chinese mythology is a rich and beautiful environment that is under represented in games. This setting gives Journey a large pool of art, architecture, mythology, and drama to draw upon. The striking map tiles, tokens, cards and highly detailed miniatures capture the Pilgrims and their world perfectly. But the themes run much deeper - skills, weapons, harmful conditions, custom dice and the Karma game mechanic stay true to the environment, fully immersing the players in the game world.
1 to 4 players control the four Pilgrims and the game's AI controls the Demons and other creatures. Around 10 quests are included, each taking about 30 minutes to 2 hours. Diverse playing styles are possible, always with a strong emphasis on cooperation. Do you ruthlessly hack and slash, killing all Demons in the Pilgrims' path? Or take a more virtuous path, cleansing the Demons' souls. Your decisions affect the Pilgrims' abilities, skills and equipment. Solo play is enabled with no changes to the rules, 1 player simply controls all four Pilgrims.
