“We’ve been absolutely thrilled with the success of Sentinels of the Multiverse , the reaction and unending excitement from our fans as well as the ongoing partnership with Greater Than Games.  But, we’re even more excited to turn the page and move on to Season 2,” said Jeremy Handel, president of Handelabra Games.  “We’re turning to Kickstarter for Season 2 for a few very important reasons.  First, it will allow us to guarantee development of the entire series of planned expansions, from Vengeance to OblivAeon.  Second, we’ve received a significant number of feature requests from the community that we would like to see implemented and we’ve have included those as stretch goals.  Finally, and most importantly, Kickstarter provides us with a platform from which we can reward those fans who have been with us from the beginning with great tier prizing as well as encourage new members to join our great community.”

The Sentinels of the Multiverse comic book theme, cooperative multiplayer interaction and card battle gameplay combine to create one of today’s most original gaming experiences – one where players fight through the pages of an actual comic book story.  The game itself takes place in the world of Sentinel Comics, a new and exciting comic universe created by Christopher Badell and Adam Rebottaro.   Handelabra Games’ Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Video Game was then faithfully adapted from the popular Sentinels of the Multiverse Card Game from Greater Than Games recreating the rules and gameplay precisely, but streamlining the experience for digital play.

In Sentinels of the Multiverse , players take control of up to five heroes, including the ever stalwart Legacy, the inpenetrable Bunker, and the speedy Tachyon among many others,  in cooperative battles against super-powered villains and their countless card-based minions and abilities, such as the infamous Baron Blade, the rampaging Grand Warlord Voss and the evil AI Omnitron.  The battle environments themselves are also entirely unpreditable and often hostile places that can dramatically swing the tide of battle at any moment with the introduction of a cataclysmic event or angry local denizen.  Players can harness those environmental forces to their own ends, battle them directly or even ignore them entirely, but at great personal risk.  Players can also engage in “Weekly One Shots,” special weekly scenarios for the entire community, that reward players with virtual comic covers from Sentinel Comics.
