Chaos Reborn is a turn-based tactical role-playing game created by Julian Gollop and crowdfunded through Kickstarter. The game is a remake of Gollop's 1985 game Chaos: The Battle of Wizards
Came out today, there has never seemed much of an interest in it on Neogaf, hence me making an |OT!
It's a turn based tactical wizard simulator, a remake of one of the best ZX Spectrum games ever.
And Chaos Battle Of The Wizards was the basically the best multiplayer game ever.
The most fun you could have with 8 people gathered round a black and white TV.
Julian Gollop the creator is kind of famous, probably most know for creating the Xcom/UFO series.
Julian Gollop is a British designer of strategy games and strategy video games, and the founder of now-defunct game studios Mythos Games (Target Games) and Codo Technologies. Gollop has designed many video games for numerous systems since the early 1980s. His most popular work to date is the X-COM series of science fiction games, in particular the first and third games in the series, on which he worked together with his brother, Nick, for MicroProse.
In 2009, IGN ranked Julian Gollop and Nick at 66th place among the top video game creators of all time.
Younger viewers might remember his Ghost Recon 3DS game.
Chaos Reborn was Kickstarted and struggled to get funded to be honest.
Went right down to the wire IIRC.
He ran a great Kickstarer though with updates every month and a playable online prototype from the get go.
The world of Chaos Reborn is incredible. A world fractured by magic; humans, dragons, vampires, unicorns and other magical races all clinging for life on torn pieces of a broken world, floating in a sea of power; a struggle for power over what remains of the Earth. Against this, a never-ending string of battles between wizards - wizards who summon magical creatures to fight by their side to defeat their opponent.
Sounds cool eh?
It's not all multiplayer there is a single player campaign for training your wizard and skills
Chaos Reborn is a game of battling wizards in which you cast spells and summon creatures in order to defeat your enemy. The game will feature an extensive RPG mode where you can seek knowledge, power and wealth by adventuring in the Realms of Chaos. You will be able to join guilds, trade items and ascend the social ranks in order to become a God.
They've also got a small but healthy community and run monthly competitions
So even if the game flops, there is always people on there to find matches with.
and some blurb from the Kickstarter
'I’m excited about Chaos Reborn because it turns out to be a smart and interesting game even in this early, prototype form … it feels much more like the work of a smart young design-punk than something feeding on the sour blood of nostalgia.' - Alec Meer, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Chaos Reborn is a game with nail-biting decisions and twists of fate. Every battle is different, every realm is unique, and there is always something new to discover.
Based on my cult classic ZX Spectrum game ‘Chaos’, first published in 1985 by Games Workshop, Chaos Reborn is part sequel, part re-imagining of that original game brought up-to-date with high quality presentation.
The magic combat system remains true to the original Chaos. It is all about summoning a host of weird and mythical creatures, moving and fighting with them, and using your wizard to attack, defend, buff and de-buff with large array of spells. It is highly tactical and fast paced. But Chaos Reborn expands considerably on this by offering multiplayer modes, a single-player RPG system and co-op play.
Cast disbelieve if old.
