Brass: Lancashire and Brass: Birmingham taking to Kickstarter next month
Martin Wallace’s beloved Industrial Revolution-set economic strategy game Brass will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year with a revamped re-release, plus a brand new spiritual successor.
The two titles are the work of Santorini publisher Roxley, which revealed that the original Brass will receive a visual overhaul from artist Mr. Cuddington, bringing a ‘darker aesthetic’ to the game, as well as a new name: Brass: Lancashire.
As far as we can tell, Lancashire’s gameplay will remain largely untouched, save for the introduction of optional player powers.
Meanwhile, Brass: Birmingham will be a brand new game related to the 2007 original.
Not much has been said about how the apparently standalone title will link to Martin Wallace’s game of establishing industries and transport routes in northern England, though rumours suggest the addition of beer as an industry.
Both Brass: Lancashire and Brass: Birmingham will take to crowdfunding site Kickstarter on Easter Monday (that’s April 17th for you heathens out there).
