The South Asian mountainous regions remain perhaps the most mysterious and unexplored terrain in the world. One such element/landform present in the area is the Baltoro Glacier
Which is one of the longest glaciers outside the polar regions. Situated in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan, it offers an opportunity to thrill-seekers to embark on a life-changing journey.
AzCorp is offering a unique opportunity to explore the Baltoro Glacier from the comfort of your home. After publishing critically acclaimed comic book series, audiobooks and producing a children’s TV show, AzCorp Entertainment is now all set to dive into a highly lucrative and competitive board-game publishing industry.
‘Winds of Baltoro – Race to Baltoro Glacier’ board game is developed by Stephan Nilson, based on the Winds of Baltoro universe created by Imran Azhar and developed by Zarrar Khuhro and published by AzCorp Entertainment.
The game starts with the tyrant ruler Meer, who possesses the ability to penetrate people’s minds, going silent. His disappearance has caused a power vacuum and the kingdom is up for grabs. In order to unravel the truth of Meer’s absence, one must reach the Baltoro glacier and save the kingdom from Meer’s power. The game enables the players to embark on a journey of quests and decipher clues to reach the heart of Meer’s sanctuary, where lies the gospel of truth. From the ancient ruins of Mohenjo-Daro, where Jinn now walk to the mutant-haunted wastelands and corpse cities, this is an epic story of sorcery and science, of madness and magic, where allies become enemies and nothing and no one is quite what they appear to be.
The game comes equipped with:
- A game board
- 108 event cards
- 16 character cards
- 16 character standees
- An optional set of beautifully crafted miniature sculptures
It will be interesting to see how the board-game market, which is often inspired by the Greek and Nordic mythologies, will react to a South Asian post-apocalyptic world with jinns and heroes from this part of the world. The eye-catching and creative board game design is sure to capture the attention of seasoned board game enthusiasts and the engaging storyline ensures a fun and action-packed experience.
The ‘Winds of Baltoro – Race to the Baltoro Glacier’ campaign is now live on Kickstarter.
