More MOBA-like gameplay and new watch-it-played videos

Every day, we playtest Skytear on Tabletop Simulator with players from all over the world (you can join us on Discord and Facebook).

Because of this daily playtesting, the game is improving and has changed a lot since the last time we wrote a month ago.

The first notable change is the introduction of the faction asymmetries:

  • Kurumo warriors mark enemy heroes to launch coordinated attacks
  • Liothan followers shapeshift into animal forms to gain new skills
  • Taulot heroes place totems and underground tunnels (think hive mind :)
  • And Nupten champions summon illusions of themselves

The second important update is the wave token. Long story short: with this simple addition pushing with your minions got more fun and rewarding (plus: you can gank like never before :).

Anyway, the changes since last month are too many to be listed here.
So we just recorded a quick gameplay video and updated the rulebook.

Check out the videos and rulebook here
