LOKA is a fantastically sculpted Chess sets and a brand new take on playing Chess, brought to you by Alessio Cavatore`s River Horse and published by Mantic Games.
LOKA is played with fantasy-inspired Chess pieces, each evoking the powerful imagery of one of the four elements.
`At its heart, LOKA uses the rules of Chess, and Alessio has some significant twists in mind in the form of new mechanics:
Choose your army – Each player get to choose which pieces they put onto the board, meaning both players command different armies on the battlefield â€“ do you field a small but elite force with three Queens, or do you go for a mass horde of Pawns?
Fantasy Scenery â€“ Change the shape of the battlefield with movement blocking terrain that alters the path youâ€™ll take into combat.
Dice Driven Combat â€“ a simple and elegant system using eight sided dice adds some unpredictability to combat, placing extra emphasis on strategy and positioning as pieces build in power with support from their comrades.”
