As immersive as it is breathtaking, NEXUS is a brutal and irreverent story-driven arena combat game that takes place on poorly maintained space barges. Packed with rabid and bloodthirsty fans, these barges feature an array of deadly hazards that are designed to indiscriminately kill or injure both combatants. These hazards range from floor saws that tear across the arena floors to pits that are home to monstrosities just looking for something to eat. Full of beautifully illustrated and amusingly inappropriate cards and lore, each match leaves you with a story to tell and laughs to be had by all.

Gamers will appreciate the nostalgic art style and classic RPG elements that drive the brutal theme of the game. NEXUS puts classic tabletop gaming tools like dice, pen, and paper to good use; to pit genetically engineered champions against one another in visceral combat. Players will experience a rush as their dice rolls determine the fate of their hapless champions followed by thunderous bursts of laughter.

The skirmish mode, while easily picked up by even the most novice of players, has just the right amount of depth, complexity, and self-generating narrative to make each match exhilarating. Dive even deeper with RPG legacy features and build your wealth and influence allowing for countless upgrades and bribes.

 

 
NEXUS is all about having fun. This is achieved by antagonizing and competing with your friends through bloody, brutal, and often fatal combat. There is nothing co-operative about it, but you will find camaraderie in the hopelessness of trying to command these giant meat-bags called Helots to execute your orders. In NEXUS you play the part of a coach/fight promoter commanding these genetically engineered warriors to kill each other in arenas aboard giant space barges. And as you do, both the crowd and arena are indiscriminately trying to kill everyone involved. Sounds fun, right?!
 
The NEXUS: Arena Combat System was built from the ground up for fun. We took our favorite gaming mechanics and worked backwards from there to keep the table full of excitement and laughs. You will find your favorite elements from boardgames, RPGs, and even casino gambling all-rolled-up into this 12" x 12" box of lowbrow humor and gory chaos!

Engage in bouts that pit fighters against each other in an all-or-nothing battle where only one will emerge victorious... and possibly alive. But do not worry, NEXUS is not all about winning and losing in the barge arena. Even a loss can build your fame and wealth enough to defeat your opponent in the only outcome that truly matters, your rise to power.
Known as helots, these mindless genetic freaks rely on your instructions to put them in the best positions to win. Overpower your opponent’s helot with your champion’s brute strength or use your helot’s cunning to lure its adversary into hazards - no method of winning matters so long as your helot is the last one standing.
Switch up your strategy on the fly, take advantage of turning points, triggered events, positioning bonuses, and other tactics that can turn a losing bout into a rousing victory.
