Chtulhu Clan, the studio that brought you GIN1, HEXE and Meet Your Future, releases tactical multiplayer tabletop puzzle brawler
Leeuwarden - Get ready for action with Ó Kù Té, the puzzle arena where you find the shapes of your life. The mystery board allocates geometrical shapes to players. Start a quest to find out which shape is yours and which belong to your oponents. Place tiles or remove them, and leave your opponents wondering what to do next...
Chtulhu CEO Niek Jonker explains: "with Ó Kù Té we take tactical tabletop gaming to the next level. Play transcends the board itself, with players solving puzzles in their minds before placing new tiles. In short sessions you need to quickly find which shape awards you and the other players credits, adapt your tactics to place your tiles with new-found information and counter the moves of the other players. And everything in a short game of five moves per player!"
Lead Artist Salko Kattenberg stresses how the 'Mystic Temple'-theme embraces gameplay. "Oriental games like Go or Mah-Yongh are real battles of the mind, where the most exiting moments in the game are when no-one is actually doing something. Ó Kù Té is similar to those games in the sense the real arena is in the players minds.”
“Ó Kù Té really blew my mind. It felt like martial arts without the fistfights, you really need to think before you act! Is there some applejuice left?
