Dice Legacy on its way to Switch and PC later this year from Ravenscourt
Build cities and survive long enough to solve the mystery of the wilds in a luck-based indie game.
Ravenscourt will digitally publish a dice-based city builder survival game called Dice Legacy on Nintendo Switch and PC later this year, the company announced today in a press release. The game is developed by DESTINYbit, a 7-person development studio based in Ravenna, Italy.
Dice Legacy blends a variety of genres to present something a little bit different. It introduces the ringworld, which players will settle as they deal with unique challenges and a fate determined by rolls of the dice.
Among the actions they will control with six-sided dice: planting and harvesting, establishing supply chains and even combat. Gameplay elements include exploration, resource gathering, building and conquering, and time is not on the player's side; at any moment, they could experience a hostile visit from one of the mysterious factions obscured by the fog of war.
"Dice Legacy is an incredibly innovative game and we're excited to partner with Ravenscourt on our quest to bring our love for dice to the masses," said Gian Paolo Vernocchi, DESTINYbit's founder. "We blended the best elements of survival city builders, roguelikes and board games to create a unique mix. We're hoping that together with Ravenscourt, we can bring our idea to a wider audience and hopefully kick the ball in a new direction for the industry and shape the future of digital tabletop style games."
That's a bit more ambition than one might expect from a team so small, but great ideas come from all parts of the globe and really it all comes down to the execution.
"It's not often that a game as unique as Dice Legacy comes along and therefore it is a lovely addition to our Ravenscourt lineup," added Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media. "It's fascinating to play a game that shows us the dice rolls that usually happen in the background and stays true to its tabletop roots."
Dice Legacy is due in Summer 2021, provided there are no unexpected delays, though this article doesn't end with the suggestion that you head to one of the online shops to place a preorder. It's still early days for that, but Ravenscourt and DESTINYbit no doubt appreciate your interest.
