Hired Guns: The Boardgame?!?

Hi all,

I made a couple of boardgame figures for a Hired Guns boardgame myself using the game sprites. Check out more pics here:

Well, I haven't really worked on those yet

I had some ideas though. It would be a mixture of classic sci-fi dungeon crawls like Doom: TBG and puzzle elements like moving blocks around etc. Of course, solving puzzles is a lot easer when you can just think as long as you want during your turn, instead of having monsters closing in in realt time

How about something similar to Archon without arcade part?

Interesting.


So I suppose you managed to extract the monster graphics? Or have you gone the "screenshot + cleaning through an image editor" way?

What about calling it Chess?

Well, there are some fantasy chess variants that can be close to Archon: http://www.chessvariants.org/Gindex.html

For example:

Yes, I ripped all graphics from a savestate using a memory ripper. It was quite the experience, so to speak, but I eventually got the hang of it
