Having already raised well beyond its original funding goal, Cloudspire is a MOBA-esque tower defence game that looks pretty bloody good.
With support for up to four players and a run time of approximately two hours, Cloudspiresplits players across the islands of Ankar. After arranging the hex-based map, players plop down their fortresses and begin purchasing spires (aka towers), minions, heroes and equipment, just like you would in a proper MOBA.
Action is turn-based, and each of the game's four factions are asymmetrical. Players have the choice to deploy minions individually or as a stack, which ensures that only the top unit in the stack takes damage.
You can see and hear a brief rundown of the game below:
It's a cool looking game! It's also massive: the entire box weighs almost 6kg, which explains why shipping is over £30. You'll also have to tack on an extra four to six weeks for delivery, meaning that local backers probably won't get this game until late August-early September 2019 at the absolute earliest.
Still, breaking a MOBA into a tabletop game is a neat idea. The components here look cool, and asymmetry in strategy games is always great if done well. You can read up more about Cloudspire on the official Kickstarter listing.
