Hey awesome Google+ board gamers!

Unbroken : a solo game of survival and revenge is now live on Kickstarter!

Made specifically to be enjoyed solo, it’s a tense, challenging experience packed into a tight 20-30 min playing time. You play as a lone survival of a terrible monster attack - finding yourself wounded, unarmed and hunted by enemies you have to use what little time and resources you have to prepare yourself to deal with the monsters through either trickery or force.

Rahdo described it as “Die Hard in a dungeon” - if you are looking for a tough, gritty challenge that relies more on resource management and planning than luck of the dice - Unbroken is a game for you.

Inspired by such solo games as Friday and Space Hulk: Death Angel the game features a variety of characters to play and monsters to battle.

Unbroken is portable, affordable and solidly built with the help of an amazing solo community. We are so certain folks will enjoy it - we are offering a no-condition 30-day money back guarantee.

I welcome any comments or questions you have here or on the campaign.

Get back up to avenge the fallen. Good luck surviving!

Backed this project on Kickstarter today - a neat little interactive game with multi-use cards and gorgeous art. Looks like Hero Realms that plays faster but with more strategy. Take a look!

Hey there, awesome board gamers!

I want to tell you about a game I have been working on that you can now try out for free. Unbroken is a solo game of survival and revenge set in a world of dark fantasy. You play as a lone survivor of a failed dungeon expedition - all your companions have been killed and you are trying to make your way out, navigating the underground tunnels, trying to scrape together enough resources to craft some weaponry and not starve.

The game consists of 4 levels with a monster fight at the end of each. Players have the option to avoid the fights by tricking monsters rather than fighting them head-on.

Unbroken was inspired by the simplicity and strategic depth of Friday, although the gameplay and mechanics are quite different. Unbroken is about resource management and finding ways of effectively using what you have to overcome unexpected obstacles.

I wanted to create a game that carries a tense, challenging experience with a compelling narrate but fits in under half an hour. It is also made specifically and exclusively for solo play. My hope is that it will provide a new option for this kind of game for people who might not have time to play longer, more involved solo games like Gloomhaven or Mage Knight.

The full-art Print and Play of the game is available for free for a limited time over here http://altemagames.com/unbroken/playtesting/

Alternatively you can subscribe to a TableTop Simulator module : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1229210018&searchtext

We are currently working towards bringing the game to Kickstarter in March of 2018. If you want to stay updated - please subscribe to the Unbroken BGG or visit our website for the many ways to stay updated.

I'm happy to answer any questions you might have - hope you enjoy Unbroken!

Hey awesome board gamers!

Wanted to show off the box cover of my upcoming second Kickstarter game to my favourite G+ community :).

I've posted about it here and was very excited to get enthusiastic responses, so want to keep the folks here updated.

Unbroken is a tale of survival and revenge in monster-infested dark fantasy catacombs.The game itself is about resource management and calculated risk with a small element of luck and an emphasis on learning with every game you play. With a playing time of 20-30 minutes I wanted to build a game that packs a tense, challenging experience into an easy-to-accommodate time slot.

At this point Unbroken has been through extensive testing (over 300 games) and we are now in graphic design stage.

My team is working hard to bring the game to Kickstarter next Spring - in the meantime you can follow along on BGG (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/225885/unbroken) or try the free Print and Play (http://altemagames.com/unbroken/playtesting/)

Hope this is something that people in this group will find interesting!

Calling board gamers who enjoy a challenge!

My upcoming game, Unbroken, is in a good place in terms of overall rules but I need more data to figure out whether the Hard difficulty is too punishing or just right.

If anyone wants to give the Print and Play a spin on a Hard difficulty (maybe play a couple of games on Med to learn first) - would love to hear your impressions.
Current Medium win rate is about 40% (higher for experienced players) but I'm looking for more info on the Hard difficulty. It was meant to be a tough challenge.

Unbroken is a solo-only game of survival and revenge in a world of dark fantasy - you play as a sole survivor of a failed adventure trying to make it out without being eaten by the monsters. It plays in ~20 min once you know what you're doing.

The Print and Play file is available at http://altemagames.com/unbroken/playtesting/

Thanks for considering!

I am amazed this guy doesn't have more of a following. Consistently awesome videos.
Love his sense of humour. Made me really curious to try some of the games he talks about.

Hey awesome board gamers,

An updated Print and Play for Unbroken: a solo game of survival and revenge is now available.

I posted about it a month ago and since then the game went through a robust playtesting with over 170 games logged. Following the balancing and addition of some new content I am now happy to offer a next-to-final Print and Play version to all those interested.

Everything required to play the game is available at http://altemagames.com/unbroken/playtesting/

Unbroken is a solo card game set in a world of dark fantasy. It tells the story of an unfortunate adventurer who gets left for dead in monster-infested catacombs. Wounded, hungry and alone, you have to fight your way out of the caverns using your wits, resolve and makeshift weaponry. It plays in 15-25 minutes.

The game had an overwhelmingly positive reception from testers with 93% liking or loving it.

I welcome anyone interested in challenging games to try it out and share their thoughts. The BGG listing for the game is now live as well : https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/225885/unbroken

Hi everyone. Happy Friday!

I am looking for playtesters for a solo RPG-light game I have created - perhaps this will be of interest to those of you who like a challenge.

Unbroken is a solo card game focusing on survival and combat in a dark fantasy setting. It tells the tale of an unfortunate adventurer whose party got wiped out by monsters. Alone, wounded and without any equipment the player has to overcome the dangers of the monster-infested tunnels and make it out alive.
Once you learn the game each play takes 15-20 min.

The game has been in development for about half a year and is now undergoing public blind playtesting. I aim to bring it to Kickstarter towards the end of 2017.

Would truly appreciate anyone willing to make a Print and Play and give it a whirl. Full instructions and Print and Play files available at

Thanks!

I am considering a subtitle for the upcoming second printing of my game, Cauldron. Which one of these do you like? Help me pick or suggest your own. Thank you!

Quick overview - it's a light strategy game of harvesting magical ingredients to brew potions. Lots of player interaction and take-that, lighthearted feel overall.
