We were created to serve the gods, but who among us will rule? Grow barley, make pots, and bring your goats to market—then sacrifice it all to win the favor of the gods!

Sumer is a cutthroat digital board game about four Sumerian nobles engaged in the political game of worship. Action meets strategy in this raw struggle for power set at the dawn of civilization.

Description

A digital board game inspired by M.U.L.E. and the Epic of Gilgamesh. Race across the ziggurat to harvest barley, herd goats, and sacrifice to the great goddess Inanna.

Sumer draws on modern Eurogame design elements like worker placement, territory control, and auctions. Its unique innovation is to place these into an action video game.

Gameplay Summary

The game is divided into two phases: the Harvest phase and the Auction phase. During the Harvest phase assign your workers to prepare offerings for Inanna. Jump up and down the face of a ziggurat to gather resources, then bring them to the altars and sacrifice them for the her Favor. Collect goats, then offer them in the auction to bid on valuable blessings like extra workers, new buildings, or influence-spreading statues. Outbid, outproduce, and outsmart your way to victory!

History

Digital Board Games

We began developing Sumer as a way of exploring the junction between board games and videogames. We wanted to take the best of both worlds and get rid of the bad stuff, like the setup time and busywork that tends to bog down even excellent board games. By bringing together elegant board game mechanics with the physics-based execution skill of action video games, we’ve created a cutthroat strategic experience unique among modern game.
