Destiny Aurora is an ambitious product, but one I am excited to see in its final form. This board game adaptation of the ongoing book series will also launch alongside of a series of comics in the same universe.
Destiny Aurora sets itself in the midst of a fierce interstellar battle that takes place in space and on planets. The game will feature multiple different scenarios and feature cooperative and multiplayer modes.
One of the most impressive features is the fact that each ship has a complement of crew members who fill important roles on space or on land. While the ships target one another far above the planet, each crew member can land and engage in ground combat to gain control of the planet. Doing so is risky, however, as doing so will deprive the ship of that crew member’s abilities. Each unit has a role, such as engineer or gunner, that the ship will rely on in flight. Landing is an important way to gain control over different areas, but you must balance your ground forces against the ship’s needs.
