Can you imagine the ancient board game Snakes and Ladder being transformed into a first person shooter video game? Although it sounds weird, the game can soon be on Steam.
The historic version of the Snakes and Ladder game had morality lessons and the progress of the players can be compared to one’s journey of life in which we encounter both good and bad experiences. The ladders denoted virtues while the snakes were the vices. If a video game is made on this, it would certainly be an interesting one.
The description of the game on Steam Greenlight reads,
Millions of years ago there waged a devastating war between humans and reptilians for control over the galaxy. Knowledge of this war has been passed down the ages and now exists in the form of a board game which is played to this date.
The Snake and Ladder universe has massive possibilities and everything looks impressive until now, from the trailer to the brilliant description which added,
“Recreated from a single player First-Person-Shooter perspective, this is the classic Snakes & Ladders board game like you have never played it before! Developed using Epic’s powerful Unreal® Engine, Episode 1 is a small game comprising of 6 levels in one giant earth-like swamp forest valley on an unknown planet. It delves into first contact between the two races and how the whole legend began. It is the stepping stone into the vast Snakes-N-Ladders: Origins saga to come.”
Have a look at the trailer of the Snakes N Ladders : Origins – Episode 1 below.
