Rising 5: Runes of Asteros
Designed by Gary Kim, Evan Song
A long, long time ago on the far flung planet of Asteros, an ancient king confined unspeakable monsters behind a Rune Gate and sealed it shut with 4 divine Runes. The gate has stood dormant for more than a millennia, until now. The seal has weakened an the evils of the Aether once again plague Asteros!
As the influence of Silk, the crystalized form of Aether itself, spread and corrupted all it touched, the wizened sage ORAKL petitioned the Council of United Planets for help and four of their top agents – EKHO, HAL, ELI and NOVA have been dispatched.
Codenamed “Rising 5”, these heroes are Asteros’ only hope. If they are to save this world they must find the lost runes and harness the power of the Silk to seal the Gate once more. But many dangers now lie in wait on this one peaceful planet…
Rising 5 is a cooperative deduction game for 1-5 players that’s driven by a digital application. Players take control of a team of five agents with unique powers who must work together to find the right combination of runes and save the planet of Asteros, all while dealing with monsters seeking to stop them.
The game features art by Vincent Dutrait and is supported by a free app available on both the Apple and Google stores.
