Meet the Designer
Andrew Lowen is the designer of Deliverance. He set out to make something that would be everything he wanted in a board game without compromise.
His goals were twofold:
- Make an epic dungeon-crawler board game filled with innovative & challenging gameplay.
- Make an approachable & theologically sound fantasy game that was not preachy or sacrilegious.
The result was Deliverance. If you’d like to learn more about Andrew, watch the videos below!
About The Game
Deliverance is a co-op tactical adventure board game for 1-4 players with a “Christian Fantasy” theme of angels vs demons. The game features angels working together to protect saints and defeat the forces of Darkness through tactical combat and the power of Prayer.
As of the time of this writing, Deliverance is the highest-grossing Christian crowdfunded board game of all time (View the Kickstarter Campaign here).
“In Deliverance, you take on the role of an elite angelic warrior in the army of Heaven. Since the victory on the Cross, you hunt the fallen angelic Princes. Once your faithful brethren, they now lead Satan’s forces of Darkness in a bitter war against the humans, bent on corrupting every last soul. In a bid to end their reign of chaos, you have planned a daring mission into one of their great Strongholds – The pleasant and quiet city of Fallbrook.
Armed with your weapons, courage, and your God-given angelic powers, you and your faithful allies must overcome legions of demons to slay their leader. But be watchful, for the darkness of the mortal world seems to be spreading into the spiritual realm…”
Deliverance has thriving social communities on Facebook, Discord, and BoardGameGeek, and we give regular newsletter updates to our email subscribers!
