Travel the unknown, face the horrors, and
survive the story.

Machina Arcana is a cooperative horror adventure board game for 1-4 players. The most crucial rule is: survive. Players take the role of explorers who are investigating an ancient subterranean complex of unknown origin. They face monsters inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraf in a steampunk setting. Explorers will collect gear, interact with and utilize their environment, fight with monsters, and immerse themselves into the rich narrative elements.

The complete story is broken down into different scenarios that represent a self contained game. Every scenario contains chapters, each with its own narrative and specifics. The goal of the game is to progress through the story and face the endgame as the finale of each scenario.

The main goal behind Machina Arcana is to provide players with a horror game which can never be played the same way, mechanics that enables different strategies and approaches, and a rich setting that combines everything together smoothly. The game is scalable by default; there is no need for special conditions based on the player count. As the story progresses, so does the gear. But beware! If you are too slow, Horror might very well prevail and devour you whole.
