SponsoredRocketship Entertainment, the industry leader in publishing hit webcomics and 2021 Ringo Award winner for Favorite Publisher, launched the Kickstarter campaign for the tabletop game based off Ryan Benjamin’s Brothers BondBrothers Bond was the first Webtoon series nominated for the Eisner Award, and now, it will be the first ever adapted into a tabletop game.

The original series is described as:

"Brothers Bond centers on Yoshi, the young, arrogant crown prince set to inherit an empire.

After falling into trouble with his father, the one man he fears, Yoshi runs from home.  Picked up by two blind wandering samurai, Yoshi grows up to learn honor and strength.  He then decides to return to his homeland to claim his birthright and save his people from a demon invasion.

A story about good versus evil, dark versus light, and brother versus brother. Brothers Bond is an intriguing tale of honor, respect, and tradition."

Chris Dias (NaramataUltramodern5) developed this cooperative tabletop game which allows two to four players to assume the roles of the characters from Brothers Bond and journey across a mystical land, partaking in numerous adventures in hopes of saving the world. Each game resides within a larger connected campaign where heroes travel across the land, engage in high-pitched action, and progress a story towards an epic climax. Along the way, characters develop and improve between sessions, carrying over skills and choices to later games.

"Tabletop games have always been a huge passion of mine, and I’m thrilled to have Brothers Bond become our first step into that arena," said Rocketship Entertainment CEO Tom Akel. "Ryan and Chris are two artists that are at the top of their crafts, and their collaboration on this game has given players an experience they can truly look forward to."

Backers of the campaign can be the first to bring home Brothers Bond the Game, and they have access to stretch goals and add-ons that include Brothers Bond: the Collected Edition Graphic Novel, a graphic novel bookplate signed by Ryan Benjamin, character miniatures, character ability and dice tray, original Ryan Benjamin character art, additional event and maneuver cards, new enemies, additional scenarios for the storybook, and the addition of the character of Kano as a standee (for the standard edition) or mini (for the deluxe edition). Character, dice, and enemy trays are designed by the world class team at Game Trayz.

For retailers there is a retailer discount bundle to order the deluxe version at a distribution level discount.

Brothers Bond the Game is Rocketship Entertainment’s 29th crowdfunding campaign since its launch in 2019 but its first campaign for a tabletop game.
