Independent video game publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with independent developer Tim Conkling, have announced that strategic digital board game, Antihero, is available to download on the App Store and Google Play. Set against the backdrop of a gas-lit Victorian underworld, players assume the role of a Master Thief, and employ underhanded and ruthless tactics to dominate the city and outwit their opponents. The mobile version of Antihero is cross compatible with its PC counterpart launched last year and allows players to continue their devious strategies on the move.
The game includes a story-driven single player campaign and a Skirmish-vs-AI mode to help would-be thieves practice their skulduggery skills before going face to face with online opponents.
In Antihero players can test their thievery skills in a gas-lit Victorian underworld overrun by corruption and greed, your task is to manage your thieves’ guild, recruit street urchins, hire gangs, steal everything… and bribe, blackmail and assassinate your way to victory! Resource management is key to growing your guild and utilizing your nefarious assets as you set about your dastardly deeds. Spend your ill-gotten riches to hire new recruits such as thugs and saboteurs to disrupt your opponent’s progress and dominate key ground, upgrade your thieving skills and acquire deadly weapons to give you the ultimate edge. Gold is a thief’s best friend!
Antihero also includes two online game modes. ‘Casual Matches’ are asynchronous affairs – players can take their time to their next move, and have multiple games running simultaneously.. In ‘Live Match’, players face their opponents in real-time, with a turn-timer upping the pressure dramatically! Experienced thieves can set up custom “House Rules” to tailor matches to their tastes.
The game is also available on PC from all good digital retailers.
