What is Deliverance?

Since the victory on the Cross, you have hunted the Fallen Princes. Scattered to the four corners of the earth to survive, they now lead the demonic hordes from the shadows. After centuries of tracking, the trail has run hot among the humans. The deliverance begins now.

See the world through the eyes of a legendary Angelic warrior on a mission from the King of Kings, and embark on an epic journey into the hidden realm. Feel the dramatic echoes of humanity’s influence in the spiritual realm as you battle the evil before you in Deliverance, a tactical combat “Christian Fantasy” cooperative dungeon crawl boardgame for 1-5 players.

Choose your hero and act as the Hand of God against the Forces of Darkness controlled by the game itself. Blessed with stewardship over Heavenly relics and the very elements themselves, unleash your God-given gifts to slay demonic foes, cast down the Darkness, and free the saints. Send your adversaries to the abyss to await their judgment day!

Gameplay Highlights

Heavenly Treasure

Each character begins the game with their signature weapons, and grow in might throughout the game with 6 different types of equipment. Powerful items are earned after each victory in battle which allow your character to take on new skills and earn permanent stat increases. You will need every bit of gear you can get to stand a chance against the Darkness. It is written, "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also," and the heroic Angels of Deliverance always come prepared accordingly.

The Darkness Comes...

The evil emanating from the physical world around you must be dealt with even as the great battle is waged in the spiritual realm. The Darkness grows each round as cards are placed face-down, entering play if you fail to deal with them. You must balance your fight against this ever-growing threat with your battle against the demons. Innocent saints must also be protected, lest they fall into despair and the Darkness spread beyond your control.

Prayer is Always Answered

You must engage in a spiritual battle with spiritual weapons, and the Prayer deck serves as the player's answer to the Darkness. Cast down Strongholds and Afflictions through Prayer actions, and draw powerful cards that represent all that is good in the world. These Prayer cards contain highly thematic abilities and Scriptural flavor text which add an appropriate depth of flavor to the Angelic player's options in battle.

Modular Map & Battle System

No two games will ever feel the same with the modular map and battle staging system of Deliverance. There are over 1.6 million possible enemy combinations in the base game alone, guaranteed to challenge even the most prepared of adventurers (not including the variety of modular game tiles)! Can you survive long enough to cast the Fallen Prince into the Abyss and deliver the saints from evil?

Unique Characters

Players command Angels of the special forces of Heaven’s armies, from well-known heroes like Michael or Gabriel to other powerful angels charged by God with stewardship over elements like fire, wind, life, and death. Every Angel plays differently due to highly thematic abilities and traits unique to that character. Multiple build paths and options for beginners and veterans alike offer something for every play style and skill level.

OUR NAME IS LEGION...

The bosses of Deliverance are called Fallen Princes, and were once your angelic brethren. Fallen from grace, they serve as the great generals of the army of Darkness. Each of these encounters are inspired from a Biblical villain, and contain both staged elements to challenge you in unique ways and random elements to keep you guessing. Multiple levels of difficulty allow newer players to get their feet wet and veterans to balance their survival on a knife's edge.

Intelligent AI-Driven Enemies

The Deliverance enemy AI system pays homage to the great Tactics video games of the past with an innovative modern spin. Each demon is controlled through a unique decision tree, enabling very different behaviors among enemy types. Cruel Archers fire deadly arrows from safe distances, Meddling Imps charge in groups, Masquerading Evils shatter defensive formations, and more. Battles are always fresh and interesting with these highly thematic and tactical AI decisions controlled by the game itself.

Something for everyone...

Deliverance contains two epic game modes for 1-4 players: A story-driven Campaign with missions ranging from 30-60 minutes in length, and a Skirmish mode that puts your survival skills to the test as you battle through waves of demons to defeat the Fallen Prince over 1-2 hours. Multiple levels of difficulty and a fun achievement system offer great replayability, featuring true solo gameplay with a finely tuned single-player ruleset!
