Tabletop game creator and publisher Modiphius Entertainment — publisher of Black Void, Dune: Adventures in the Imperium, and Star Trek Adventures — has introduced a brand new sci-fi fantasy world: Dreams and Machines.
Announced at GAMA, Dreams and Machines is an original transmedia IP created by Modiphius CCO Chris Birch, with tabletop gaming built into its core. Players will be introduced to the world of Dreams and Machines through a RPG starter set playable straight out of the box. The IP will continue to expand through a fully supported roleplaying game line, skirmish miniatures game, board games, novelisation, and eventually into other media, including television and video games.
“With Dreams and Machines, I wanted to create a dangerous and exciting far future world that was still feel-good and hopeful,” said Chris Birch. “We brought together a really diverse cast of creators to help bring that world to life. They’ll be helping us to create stories across many media channels, and of course, those who experience the world through the tabletop will be able to tell stories of their own. We’re excited to explore Dreams and Machines with our community in the coming years!”
Dreams and Machines is set on Evera Prime, a far-flung planet cut off from Earth, left in ruins after a war with destructive mechs now known as Wakers. The Wakers now lay dormant, and humanity scavenges incredibly-advanced technology to forge a new life. Factions are formed, like the Archivists, Dreamers, and Spears, and are rebuilding the world in their own way, growing and trading what they can with Everan communities. But in the shadows, a malevolent corrupted AI known only as the Builder plots against humanity…
As the danger grows and the world comes under threat once more, will you dare to dream?
Development of Dreams and Machines is ongoing, with a pre-order through retail and online coming this spring, and a major launch at Gen Con. Modiphius is excited to share more details about the world of Evera Prime over the coming weeks and you can find out more at www.dreamsandmachines.com.
