French Publisher Firesquid and DESTINYbit have announced Dice Legacy. The upcoming game falls under the survival city-building genre. From the promotional content that I have seen, the entire concept does look very interesting.
In the survival city-builder Dice Legacy, players are supposed to roll and use their dice to build a miniature medieval town inside a ring-shaped world. According to the press release, you will be in control of a ruler guiding your people “on the discovery of this uncharted land.”
You will need to strike a balance between exploration, resource gathering, building and conquering while exploring the wildlands surrounding the settlement. The game will feature multiple playstyles for you to choose from. You will also be tasked with trading or fighting mysterious factions inhabiting the ring.
“Dice Legacy is an incredibly unique concept that blends two of our biggest passions: video games and tabletop games,” said Gian Paolo Vernocchi, Co-founder and Creative Director of DESTINYbit. “We’re thrilled to work with a Publisher that believed in our vision from the beginning and allowed us to turn it into a truly one-of-a-kind experience.”
Here’s the game’s very interesting trailer!
The Key Features include:
- Upgrade your Peasant dice into Citizens, Soldiers, Priests or Merchants dice to build a balanced or focused society. Do your best to survive and defend your settlement from The Others.
- Choose your strategy and gather resources from forests, mines, hunting grounds and more. Use your resources to construct new buildings, research new technologies, recruit new dice and prepare for the winter.
- Encounter uncanny civilizations and uncover the mysteries of the ring. Who are The Others? How did they get here? What lurks beneath their city?
You can look forward to Dice Legacy coming to PC in Summer 2020 and consoles at a later date to be announced.
As for DESTINYbit, it is an independent game development studio based in Ravenna, Italy “which strives to give players tools to create stories worth sharing.”
I don’t think I have ever played any city-building game that used such a dice-centric mechanic.
