Developer League of Geeks has announced Armello will release on September 1 of this year. After July 31, this title will disappear from Steam Early Access until its official release two months later.
Armello, a digital board game, features playable animal heroes vying to be king or queen of the land. Each of the characters possesses different strengths and weaknesses, leaving some better suited to stealth, defense, or offense. To add another wave of complexity, the boards are procedurally generated. More randomness arises in the action of the current king, a lion suffering from madness. For more details, check out our pre-alpha preview.
League of Geeks unveiled two new characters today: Zosha the female rat and Barnaby the male rabbit. Zosha fights best in the night, as she enters into stealth after each sunset. Although her low health weakens her effectiveness in head-to-head battles, her high fight power offers great potential for surprise attacks. Barnaby, on the other hand, is more balanced. Thanks to his ability to generate the perfect item when necessary, players can use him in a variety of ways.
