Summary

The king is failing. He's been claimed by the Rot, a corrupting disease that is slowly but surely sapping his life and causing him to make irrational decisions that are putting the kingdom in peril.

Boardgames have seen a huge resurgence in the last decade. They're no longer purely the stuff of rainy family holidays and slow Christmas Days afternoons - they've made leaps and bounds in terms of variety and sophistication, developing a devoted following. Armello is the latest boardgame from that revitalised tradition to make the leap to videogames, built from the ground up to play out on the screen.

So, back to that failing king - players take on the mantle of one of four clans: wolves, rabbits, rats or bears, and attempt to usurp the king and take the crown for themselves. Each has its own perk, but can also be boosted by unlockable perks that give them a further boost. What plays out is a hex-based tactical game that blends strategy and role-playing, offering up rich strategy peppered with quests, schemes, magic, exploration and monsters!

It's a visually sumptuous adventure, reminiscent of the Redwall books and TV show, and it's sure to offer a deep, rich experience for games fans everywhere.
