View Full Version : New Miniatures Game in Open Beta: The Drowned Earth

10-24-2016, 08:55 AM
Hey guys!

For the last year of my life I have been burning the midnight oil designing an alternate Sci-Fi tabletop miniatures game set in a world of my own creation, the continent of Ulaya, a land of tropical rainforest, ancient ruins and terrifying predators! After a terrible cataclysm nature has retaken the earth- ancient cities stand silent in the wilderness, but slowly, quietly, civilisation is beginning to return. The only question? Who will control it?

The Drowned Earth is an alternate activation skirmish game, approx 5-15 models per side, which features a unique dynamic movement system and reaction mechanic allowing highly cinematic and narrative gameplay, and almost no downtime.

Miniatures are in development, and we are preparing for an April Kickstarter. However, we are committed to making the rules as awesome as possible, and so wish to have the game sampled and critiqued by as wide an audience as possible first by releasing it 6 months ahead of time in the form of an Open Beta test.

And so I proudly present to you:


We have just launched a free PDF "Open Beta" edition of the game and are very eager to have people download and provide feedback on the rules and gameplay.

We are also looking for more dedicated playtesters to check out some of the newer things we have planned.
