Ages ago, on the far flung planet of Asteros, an ancient king confined unspeakable monsters behind a Rune Gate and sealed it shut with four divine Runes. The gate has stood dormant for more than a millennia - until now! The seal has weakened, and 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. Codenamed `Rising 5`, these heroes are Asteros` only hope. Find the lost runes, harness the power of the Silk, and seal the gate once more in Rising 5, a cooperative deduction game driven by a digital app.
Rising 5: Runes of Asteros is a co-operative deduction and adventure game with a mobile phone application or a game master. Players must find the answer Code with the four Runes in the right arrangement before the evil power devours the planet. Players can explore the planet to collect energy or clues and to fight against evil monsters. When players try to unlock the code, the App or the game master will give signs that lead to right code.
If players successfully find the code, they win; if the Darkness Level reaches the Red Moon because of the evil monsters or if the Character card deck is exhausted, the players lose the game.
