[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

New indie developer Inkfish Studios attempts an innovative project fusing action video-games with traditional board-games, using digital dice, RFID playing cards and individual command pads via apps downloaded onto each players tablet or smartphone.

What is Day or Doom?

An intellectual turn-based strategy game for up to 4 people with real-time battles and mini-games ranging from arcade style combat and ‘brain-games’, to business negotiation. It attempts to bring friends back together into the same room for a night of cursing and punch ups… just like the good old days!

It is played on a unique setup configuration displaying the main game board on a central display and then referring each player to their command pad to execute actions and participate in mini games. Control your nation and dominate over your friends to rule via 1 of 3 win paths: War, Capitalism or Peace in a world that unfolds to mimic that of which we live in today including the political issues it harbors.

Day or Doom Needs Your Help

Day or Doom the world's first Video Board Game is an ambitious project, attempting many industry firsts and needs your help. Without funding to help maintain the project at its current pace it risks being swallowed up by the mouth of postponement.

The expression "time is money" is directly relative to the project. Backer contributions provide the vital budget needed to hire and maintain a team of programmers, artists, designers, and researchers working to complete our project within a 12 month timeline. The more money we have, the faster the project moves. Less we have, the less hands they use and the longer it will take to complete Day or Doom and  get it to market.
