July 21, 2016, Singapore - After launching fantasy-themed strategy game Legends of Callasia on Steam last month, Southeast Asian game studio Boomzap Entertainment returns to Kickstarter for the crowdfunding of a new expansion pack, which introduces a new playable faction, the Stoneborne, also known as Dwarves.

Legends of Callasia is a world conquest game inspired by classic turn-based strategy games like Civilization, Heroes of Might & Magic, and Risk. Players control heroes from their chosen faction, occupy territories, and control kingdoms in a tabletop-style map with bonus cards that may alter the course of battle. Its original simultaneous gameplay mechanic keeps games moving quickly, even in multiplayer mode while adding deep strategy elements.

Named Legends of Callasia: The Stoneborne, the expansion will include content based on players’ feedback: new heroes, cards, maps, and campaigns for the formerly non-playable faction, the Dwarves. The story of Stoneborne will follow their journey underground and their encounters with a new enemy, the Cavespawn.

By supporting the Kickstarter campaign, backers can pre-order copies of the main game and the expansion pack as well as have their names included in the game as heroes, territories, and kingdoms.

Boomzap has set a funding goal of $2,500 USD, and pledges start at $5. Those interested may download a free demo to the main game, which already includes a glimpse of some of the Dwarven heroes in campaign mode. Legends of Callasia is available for $24.99 USD on Steam, and will be coming soon to iPad and Android tablets. More details at legends.boomzap.com.
