MACHINE, INC. PRESENTS HEROES
INCORPORATED™, THE BOARD GAME WHERE “FIGHTING CRIME DOES
ATLANTA, GA - Jan 5, 2004 - Quest Machine Inc. takes dedicated
board gamers, as well as friends and families looking for a new
kind of home entertainment, into the world of Heroes Incorporated .
For their first release, Quest Machine introduces players to the
next generation of crime fighters. Each player leads a dynamic
duo of super-powered heroes against a legion of bad guys. The goal
is not only to stop the villains, but also to become more popular
then any of the other super groups in the city. Each team competes
for the same goal: to become the only officially elected and funded
Defenders of Megalopolis!
In Heroes Incorporated , players are in a contest to
strategically patrol the streets of Megalopolis, gaining rewards
for each block they rid of crime. Fate and Super Villain cards
add to the challenge. The game's twelve original, unique heroes
have their own super powers, which dynamically change the rules
and strategies of the game. As players fight crime they also play
cards to power up their heroes, build gadgets, go on bonus adventures,
and acquire fame.
“There is a huge crossover between comic book enthusiasts and
fans of designer board games,” says Sam Clifford, President of
Quest Machine, Inc. “And even those who are not necessarily game
or comic buffs will enjoy the easy to learn mechanics and incredible
artwork of our new superhero family board game.” Clifford, a veteran
of the computer and video game industry, was a Producer at Electronic
Arts on their popular Lord of The Rings games: The
Two Towers and The Return of The King .
Heroes Incorporated is playable by 2-4 players and will
be available for purchase at game, toy, comic, and book stores
Spring 2004 for $39.99.
