December 9th, 2014 – From Julian Gollop, legendary creator of the 1994 classic X-Com, comes the Kickstarter funded resurrection of one of his most cherished creations, 1985s Chaos: The Battle of Wizards. This new incarnation, dubbed Chaos Reborn (www.Chaos-Reborn.com) blends the original concept of a battle of odds and strategy with modern online play, single player campaigns, progression elements, and graphics beyond the original's wildest fantasy. Chaos is available now on Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/
Chaos Reborn is a quick paced turn based strategy game in which 2 to 4 wizards battle for dominance on a hex based map. The weapons at their disposal are a mixture of creatures they summon to do their bidding and a massive variety of spells. Each creature and spell has a chance of success and can be used only once. Each creature may be summoned as an illusion with a 100% chance of success, but can then be "disbelieved" by the enemy wizards, destroying it instantly. The cherries on top of this sundae of magic are that each spell may shift the alignment of the board towards chaos or law, making the associated spells easier to cast and each wizard can bring powerful staves, which can further influence their odds or give them special abilities.
The early access version of Chaos Reborn will feature a variety of multiplayer PvP matches with truly random wizards and spells. Later versions will allow your wizard to progress through a single player campaign and unlock different abilities and staves that will let you influence your spells and strategies.
