Today Kuźnia Gier officially announced their new Essen release. The game is entitled “1984: Animal Farm” and created by the team responsible for “Kingpin” and “Alcatraz” – Krzysztof Cywicki, Rafał Cywicki and Krzysztof Hanusz. It already has a BGG profile which is going to be regularly updated by the publisher, just as “Maximum Security”, announced earlier this week.
“All Animal Comrades believe that 1984 was a great year for the Animal Farm – at least the Ministry of Truth claims so…”
1984: Animal Farm – a new game by the designers of Alcatraz: the Scapegoat – presents a dystopian reality where animals had overthrown their human masters. When the fires of the revolution died down, a political game began to establish the only right totalitarian regime. The players take the roles of animal dictators who will stop at nothing to gain absolute power over the global Farm.
1984: Animal Farm is a modular negotiation game for 3 to 5 players, based on the concept of forced cooperation. On one hand, players share some business with their neighbors, on the other hand – they are divided by the will to win. The game mechanics favors efficient strategy, slick negotiations and successful bluffing. At the same time it forces the players to form temporary alliances with their enemies and keep an eye on their friends. All this makes each round of the game abound in heated talks (both public and secret), pacts, promises and betrayals. Special abilities drawn before the game as well as the winning conditions guarantee that no two games will be the same.
“Remember fellow revolutionaries: All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others!”
