Imagine Majesty™ is a theme agnostic 4X system for 2 to 6 players. With 3 game modes and infinite possibilities to create your own scenarios there is something for everyone. Whether you're in the mood to cooperatively hold back waves of enemies with friends, competitively team up to achieve objectives against opponents, or conquer a 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) style war campaign, Imagine Majesty™ has a place at your table! Launch/release announcements will be available on this website, on IMP's social media feeds, or subscribe to our email list to be notified directly.
Imagine Majesty™ Campaign is a strategy war game of the 4X variety with highly customizable units that engage in battle or contribute to their faction’s economy. Players are factions of their own imagining using units they’ve created themselves to conquer the other factions with economic prowess or militaristic might. Imagine when a rival faction has developed a new unit to answer the dominating presence of your economic engine, you spend some development points to adapt the unit into a more rounded unit type to hold the lines for your expanded territory. Allowing you to focus on developing your economy while holding them at bay.
Imagine Majesty™ Invasion is a cooperative wave defense game with highly customizable units that fend off a swarm of enemies until the invasion’s powerful leader falls in battle. You’re a small squad defending your surrounded base while you gather goods to acquire provisions and upgrade your units. Imagine when invasion units show up on the opposite side of the map when you could least afford it so you load up your toughest warrior and move across the map to drop them in their path to valiantly hold them until other warriors can defeat the original invaders to help in time!
Imagine Majesty™ Skirmish is a tactical war game with highly customizable units that compete to achieve the game’s objectives while fighting opponents doing the same. Your battalion needs to accomplish objectives specific to the game, such as capturing a flag, guarding territories, infecting your opponents’ units causing them to join your battalion, and the like. Imagine while your opponent crushes you controlling a specific territory but they've over committed and can't prevent you from taking the flag; ultimately making you victorious.
The game is adaptable to your geekdom preferences, its components are designed to inspire with historical/epic fantasy and science fiction/fantasy lovers in mind, so use your favorites or pit them in combat to prove which is better! Check out some samples below:
We're excited that everyone LOVED the customization available for units. It was awesome to see what testers were coming up with. We've updated the campaign mode with all of your feedback in mind so far and working hard to get invasion and skirmish to its best version based on your feedback. Based on all of the great feedback we're pushing to launch by end of year if all goes smoothly, maybe early 2020. Keep an eye out for play test copies as we wrap everyting up!
We’ve updated our website to allow you to subscribe to new updates on the Imagine Majesty project. This way you can be notified directly instead of hoping you catch it on the website or social media for the launch.
We’ve updated our post play survey and all too often forget about it in the heat of the moment. If you’ve recently playtested the game then please fill it out by clicking the title. THANK YOU!
Core Con was another great time playing games with new and old friends! Feedback was very positive especially to AlienTan’s leader illustrations! We’re happy new people tried and enjoyed Invasion.
Fargo Game Fest was the first convention people came to us, which is new. The game is starting to look like a real game, so we're grateful for everyone that played and happy people had fun with Invasion!
Sammi wrapped up major components to test. They're largely experimental to see what direction to go on for a few components. Even though we'll be missing some quality of life components we're looking forward to see what you think at Fargo Game Fest!
Sammi finished the iconography. Now we're working on component designs.
The magnificant leader illustrations have been completed. It's a major milestone for the game and we're excited to see how far we've come on the project!
A functional prototype of Imagine Majesty™ has been printed. It won't be an example of the quality or finishes to expect with the actual release but it has the functional components to play and refine mechanics with.
Davin has been playing war games (on the table and on the computer) since he was 8 years old and loves playing RTS games even though he isn't very good at them. These games are a ton of fun! The thing is when playing those games you pick a faction that has a play style closest to the one you want to play, assuming someone hasn’t already picked it. You play strategies to minimize your weaknesses and maximize your strengths but you cannot truly adapt the faction. Your infantry is always the same infantry, perhaps with upgrades, but still the same. You’re often fighting the mirror copy of your units too. Then when you’re not fighting mirror copies of your units the factions have an ingrained rock-paper-scissors mechanic that make it very difficult to lose or too easy to win. Then there are various win conditions but your faction is only good at maybe two of them, if you’re lucky. If we were the commanders, kings, generals, and warlords we’re depicted as in the game wouldn’t we address these issues? The ability to adapt is the core of Imagine Majesty™.
The adaptations result in a true war of wits with a metagame based on the preferences and tendencies of the players. Players find themselves shifting between stockpiling resources, building structures, technological developments, amassing an army, negotiating peace, acquiring prestige, or pillaging spoils that couldn’t be defended.
Since the game is theme agnostic players can setup the game based on history, exciting worlds, crossed universes, or made from scratch. A quick play scenario will be available to help players get straight to the action too. Most scenarios start players with a a few units and a foundation to their economy to grow from. Players will find many opportunities to roleplay as soldiers and diplomats alike to help flesh out their faction’s ideology and be further immersed in the worlds they play in.
Imagine Majesty’s invasions isolate combat and unit design into a cooperative game of fighting waves of enemies and The Big One! This mode is great for those that aren’t into war games or may feel overwhelmed by campaigns if they haven't played a war game before. Players master the basics of the game in a fun challenge that allow players to brainstorm and share design tips among one another to increase their chances of defeating the incoming waves and attaining their highest score. All while learning what units can do and tactical tricks that can be utilized in campaigns and skirmishes. Plus wave defense games are a ton of fun!
Imagine Majesty’s skirmishes are for war gamers that are all about tactical execution. Players design units with a point cap to their army and reinforcements. The various objectives can be combined to keep even masters on their toes. The theme agnosticism also helps you cross universes using your favorite figures, miniatures, and models to represent your units on the battlefield.
The game’s agnostic theming comes from Davin’s inability to choose between AlienTan’s great fantasy and sci-fi artwork. The gameplay worked well with both and allows for us all to prove which is better on the battlefield. The artwork is there to inspire the imaginations of those who are playing and we hope players share their creations with the Imagine Majesty™ community.
