Can’t wait to gaze into the watery abyss of upcoming game Uk’otoa? Neither can we!
This tactical game of semi-cooperative card play is featured as the cover of issue 251 of Game Trade Magazine, with an article featuring game details and quotes from the designers and artists who brought Uk’otoa to life. You’ll even read about an immersive optional rule that will have you whispering the name of the dread leviathan, just as the cast and community of Critical Role love to do!
Check out the full article Game Trade Magazine’s website (PDF pages 14–15, HTML), or pick up a print copy in your friendly local game store.
A few quotes from the article to whet your appetite:
The core concept for this game has been rolling around in my head for years, so I’m absolutely thrilled that it’s finally found the perfect home in the incredibly rich world of Critical Role, and its larger-than-life sea leviathan. Jeb Havens, Game Design
This is the party game that I wish I’d had to play whenever I had game nights with a few of my friends. This is the game where you can have friendly competition and co-op in the same session and I love that. Gabriel Hicks, Additional Game Design
It’s every fan artist’s dream to get an email… to work on a Critical Role project. I loved every moment of it, and I gained a new and profound respect for game designers. Hannah Friederichs, Artist
