Asmodee Editions has announced two upcoming winter releases designed by Martin Wallace (Brass, Steam): Onward to Venus, a retro sci-fi game featuring art by WETA Workshops, and Mythotopia, a medieval fantasy deck-building game.
Onward to Venus is a tactical area control game set in the retro sci-fi world created by famed artist and designer Greg Broadmore, where planets and moons are just waiting to be settled, civilized, and exploited, if the pesky local inhabitants will behave. Players take the role of Earth-based empires, out to gain influence over planets and moons by building factories and digging mines over three periods. Points are awarded at the end based on how much influence a player has on areas of the various planets and moons. The game features artwork by Peter Jackson’s world-famous WETA Workshops (see "Two-Volume Weta Set").
