Anachrony, an epic science fiction game!

The world has changed. It is the 26th century and New Earth is slowly recovering from the Day of the Purge: the day a mysterious and catastrophic explosion shook the entire planet. The majority of the population was wiped out and most of the surface became uninhabitable. No one really understood what caused this apocalypse - the only thing the survivors could do was to find shelter until the dust settled. 

The remnants of humanity have organised themselves into four radically different ideologies called Paths: the pacifist Path of Harmony, living with the flora and fauna in one of the few surviving cradles of nature; the remote Path of Domination, cruising the oceans in their gigantic city-ship; the cunning Path of Progress, observing the Earth from their city in the sky; and the religious Path of Salvation, dwelling in vast underground chambers. The followers of the four Paths live in fragile peace but in almost total isolation. Their only meeting place is the Capital, the last independent city on Earth, run by a planetary body: the World Council.

Years later, explorers discovered a rich vein of an unknown material at the devastated site of the Purge Day explosion. They named this metal Neutronium. The material is hard and light and is excellent for building construction. To commemorate the 300th anniversary of the day of the apocalypse, the World Council decided to build five monuments made entirely of Neutronium, representing the four Ways and the World Capital. As the celebrations began, representatives of the four Paths witnessed the most life-altering event for humans since the Purge.

Temporal rifts from the future opened on the monuments, revealing the true power of Neutronium: when exposed to energy, it is capable of opening passages through time. The connection to the future offered humanity unprecedented growth and prosperity, but also led to a grim revelation: the Purge was the result of the very first temporal rift. The devastating energy of a future asteroid impact was transferred to the past because of the enormous amount of Neutronium contained within the asteroid. This impact is now looming on the horizon, threatening to devastate not only the past, but also the future.

With the resources of the present and the future at their disposal, each Path will do everything in its power to prepare for the impending impact - and dominate humanity's future as the only true Path.

The Essential Edition of Anachrony includes only the base game and does not include any other modules, expansions or miniatures.

    5/5

    Une puissante explosion à décimé la population terrienne et les quelques survivants se sont rassemblés en 4 groupes, appelés “Voies”. 

    Vous êtes le leader d'une de ces Voies et vous avez environ 7 tours ("Époques") pour :

    -préparer votre groupe à l’arrivée d’un nouvel impact d'astéroïde

    -assurer sa survie

    -assurer sa domination dans le futur de l’humanité (tant qu’à faire !) 

    Autant vous le signaler tout de suite, on est ici sur du lourd, tant au sens propre (la boîte pèse + de 3 kg) qu’au sens figuré (les neurones).

    Cependant, grâce à la règle (36 pages) extrêmement bien faite et aux pictos explicites, le jeu s’apprend assez vite. 

    Quant à le maîtriser, c'est une autre histoire …

    Car ici, plusieurs mécaniques s’entremêlent : programmation, gestion de ressources, amélioration de plateau et surtout, pose d’ouvriers. 

    Et une pose d’ouvriers ultra-thématique : certaines actions ne peuvent être faites que par des ouvriers idoines et lesdits ouvriers partent faire dodo après leur journée de boulot ! A vous de prévoir de quoi faire des actions pour le tour d’après ! Il va aussi falloir gérer le moral des troupes.

    Autres particularités : le jeu se joue en deux temps (un pour la préparation à l’impact, un après l’impact) et vous pouvez emprunter des ressources au futur en faisant un voyage temporel (à condition de rembourser, sinon aïe !).

    Un jeu riche et exigeant au graphisme époustouflant avec un vrai background narratif, un gameplay ultra-profond qui, une fois bien assimilé, est un pur régal, un pur kiff, que dis-je, un must-have !

    Ce jeu avait pourtant tout pour me plaire sur le papier...

    A l'issue d'une première partie cependant, il est fort peu probable que j'en réouvre la boîte. Certes, le matériel est pléthorique. D'accord, la thématique est plutôt sympathique mais qu'est-ce qu'Anachrony aurait gagné être mieux playtesté!

    La multiplication des ressources n'apporte rien si ce n'est de la confusion et de la lourdeur, la mécanique de retour dans le temps est chouette à première vue mais ne sert au final pas à grand chose. Le hasard est présent à trop de niveaux.

    Le jeu gagnerait beaucoup à être élagué de nombre d'éléments qui n'apportent rien si ce n'est de la confusion (ressources trop nombreuses afin de justifier artificiellement des constructions identiques, recherche technologique sans saveur, emprunt/remboursement complètement artificiel...)

    Il est rare que je ne me réjouisse pas de refaire une partie d'un jeu un peu costaud. Ici, c'est le cas.
