Machina Arcana is a tactical cooperative horror adventure for 1-4 players.
Players take on the role of explorers thrown into dreadful halls, scratching for survival and progressing through the chapters from one of many horror stories. Even if they manage to stay alive till the end of the story, they will face a special mini game at the finale of each scenario. The unique environment, interactive inventory, combat mechanics and tactical diversity are all enveloped in an integral storytelling experience that provides both total immersion in the world and full replay value.
But beware! A horde of unique and terrifying monsters are bent on destroying your party. If that isn’t enough, horrific events emerge from the darkness, conspiring to disrupt and hinder any remaining hope in these comfortless chambers.
Enjoy the stunning art and dark visuals of the game world. Let yourself become entranced by the gripping story and peculiar events as you fight for survival amidst the mysterious arcane depths.
There is no need for a game master, no special conditions based on the player count, and a modifiable duration and difficulty setting.
