Revive your civilization, 5000 years after everything was destroyed. Lead your tribe and explore the frozen earth. Harness the resources you discover. Recruit surface survivors to your tribe. Construct factories with powerful machines abd nd populate ancient sites to relearn your tribe's forgotten technologies.
Revive is a game for up to 4 players with asymmetric player powers, highly variable setup, and no fighting or direct conflict. Playing through the 5-part campaign will unlock additional contents, and once all contents have been unlocked, the game can be replayed indefinitely.
At the start of the game, each player gets a set of citizen cards, a tribe board, as well as a huge dual-layer player board. The tribe board displays your unique tribe ability and the ancient technologies that you may relearn during the game. The dual-layer player board is where you will place your custom machines and upgrade your card slots.
A main objective of the game is to reach and populate the large ancient sites. These ancient locations are randomized, and as they are important sources of victory points, they'll shape your strategy differently each game. The game is over when all artifacts have been taken, and the player with the most points wins.
On your turn you will take two actions:
- Play a card (its effect determined by which card slot you use)
- Explore (reveal an area tile and recruit a new citizen card)
- Populate (populate an ancient location to learn new technology)
- Build factory (the adjacent terrains determine what machine tracks you advance)
