Lich King Studios Begins Development Of Destiny’s Dilemma
MORRISVILLE, NC – August 29, 2007 – Lich King Studios began development of DestinyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dilemma this month. DestinyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dilemma combines the best parts of board games, card games, and minigames in a fresh and fun way. The gameplay compares to a combination of Pokemon and Mario Party or Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales and Puzzle Quest.
Players traverse game boards and battle each other using timed, touch screen abilities represented as cards. To successfully use an ability card, a player selects it and completes the corresponding minigame that is presented. When one player eliminates their opponentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hit points, they win the battle and receive rewards such as new cards. The flow and gameplay is immediately addicting and accessible as players race against the clock to acquire better cards for battle.
This title places an emphasis on light deck building and multiplayer action. Aside from the single player story mode (featuring cut-scenes and dialogue), a flexible suite of multiplayer games is available for both local and internet wi-fi. Graphically, DestinyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dilemma is sure to please with its blend of 2D and 3D components. Characters are large; originally-styled sprites while backgrounds are a mix of real time polygonal objects and sprite overlays. This title appeals to casual players due to its character-driven nature, touch screen controls, board game setting, and prominent minigames. Meanwhile, the deck building, item system, and streamlined battle rules provide the strategy and depth that will satisfy hardcore players and add replay value.
