Viridian: Final Reckoning
The sprawling Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia has remained untouched by humankind. It’s thousand year old red cedars and 300 foot Sitka spruces shadow uncharted paths. The forest has grown wild and unscathed. Until now. In humanity’s quest for wealth and resources they have pushed further and further into the dense overgrowth. Only this time they’ve traversed too far. In the depths of this Canadian forest lies the Viridian, an army of animals sworn to protect their home. Once content to hide, these high functioning animals with human-like cognition have nowhere left to go. It’s time to fight. The attack against the invading human forces is led by Viridian High Marshal Caal, a vicious, but aging gorilla. He has championed Viridian since his escape from the Vancouver Zoo and united a ragtag group of animals who were also seeking safety. The group became organized and strengthened under his leadership, but now he is looking for a successor. You, a young general, must join this fight.
Every game of Viridian: Final Reckoning represents a battle against the humans. Your goal is to defeat as many enemies as possible - place enough of your troops within striking distance to take them down. Every defeated enemy is another addition to your war resume. Additionally, every battle has specific goals you must meet in order to survive. Regardless of your score, if you do not meet the mission goal, you die. Not only are you battling for survival, but you’re also fighting to become the next leader of Viridian. The player with the highest score becomes the next Viridian High Marshal.
