Press info – Kingpin for smartphones in February!

pic197390_t[1]Kuźnia Gier publishing house is very happy to announce that at the beginning of February a long-awaited digital version of Kingpin – a tactical board game about mafia wars designed by the authors of the world bestseller Alcatraz: The Scapegoat, will be released. The game will be available for the users of iPhones and iPads (and later also for Android and other platforms) only for 99 cents in iStore.

Kingpin is a tactical board game for 2 players with the aesthetic feel of dark neo-noir comics known from the series (and a film) Sin City. Artwork was designed by Robert Adler, a well-known Polish comic-book artist, the creator of such series as 48 pages and Status 7. The plot of the game presents a conflict between four gangs (the mobile version includes also an additional army from the expansion to the board game – the Cartel): Italian mafia, Russian mob, Japanese Yakuza and Colombian Cartel. On dirty boulevards of the dark city, in the shadows of tenements and skyscrapers, in the light of streetlamps and in pouring rain, a war goes on. Here everyone holds one another at gunpoint, cars screech along dark streets and hitmen hide on tops of buildings. All this is accompanied by a big amount of chess-like tactics and strategy. Here you will find an animated trailer of the game:
