We created Luudos Studio in 2019 to bring forth variety and immersion. We believe that quality is not just in components, but equally in the time invested in our games. As such, we believe in a progressive design process, to bring quality time, to hobby gamers around the world. We combine our unique design process with immersive storytelling, creating engaging and captivating games.
Our approach is to create games that have a perfect fit, with a niche and resonating storytelling, for passionated and dedicated gamers. Games that go above and beyond, supporting communities, equality and inspires gamers to convey our efforts. Therefore, we created four distinct product lines, each with their own brand, values and design principles.
Analysis paralysis! Thematic strategy, for omni gamers.
Push your luck! Bittersweet board games, for mythical thrill-seekers.
Storytelling! Explore the game, decipher the narrative.
Start your meeples! Action-packed board games for high-octane gamers.
Eternals is a global-legacy style board game, a unique immersive dungeon-crawler for 1-5 players, placed in the dark-fantasy universe of SINS by Luudos Studio.
Explore dual-layer player-boards, intricate skill development and advanced weaponry, unique in each individual core box. Together with highly detailed monster-miniatures, a touch sensitive game-board, a narrative app and an internet-connected story shared with all gamers, this dungeon crawler will forever change, as you start your first adventure, driven by an automated narrative experience.
“The unique thing about this game is not the electronic touch-sensitive game-board, nor the thematic software development or the deep, rich and immersive story arch, which all, individually, have been done before. Combining all these things together with an online story, creating something innovative, while still being a true board game, using technology to enhance the tactile and social experience, instead of stealing it.”, says Jacob Lindborg, concept designer.
The path you choose, others will bask in the darkness of your shadow, your choices and their results, like weapons you've lost or creatures you've attracted. Likewise, when you walk the same path as gamers before you, you will encounter their successes and failures, experience an empty treasure room or loot their demised character.
While being the first to walk an unknown path might have its advantages in this waste immersive world, being second to last will empower you actions from the sinister energy that lingers on from previous encounters. Exploit the challenges of those before, harvesting their energy, enchanting your weapons and abilities to increase your chances to succeed in the darkness.
“While being from different countries, different cultures or different ideologies, gamers now have a story that they build together. They’ve created the magic of friendships in local gaming-groups, connecting with other groups across the globe, playing the same game and walking in each other's shadows, while being apart.”, says Jacob Lindborg, concept designer.
Raise as a hero, a legend or ultimately a high-priest, known as Eternals, as you embark on a unique, immersive and constantly evolving narrative. Choices must be made and results must be atoned, as each encounter will forever be imprinted into an overarching story and shared with gamers around the globe.
With thousands of different character-miniatures, 5 unique in each box, each gamer will own and experience a completely unique miniature, artwork and statline. The stories told, accompanied by immersive composition artwork, will tell the legend of you and your group. When you play the story, travel the Realms and encounter challenges in the darkness; others will witness your artwork, your characters, your glory… or your failure.
Join us, as players around the globe will walk in each other's shadows, fighting the darkness by shedding light to their sins.
