Digital board game Armello meets funding goal, coming in 2015

Australian developer League of Geeks has surpassed its funding goal for the hex-based digital board game Armello, ensuring a release next year for PC, iOS, and Android devices.

Armello pits clans of woodland creatures against one another in a series of card-based battles. Players manage equipment and character abilities between turns in multiplayer matches, and elements like in-game dice aim to retain the game's tabletop appeal.

More than 6,000 backers pledged their support for Armello, pushing the project's funding total to 150% of the team's initial goal. An alpha build will be distributed to eligible backers within the next three to four months, and a beta build is expected to launch in November.
