MEZMER GAMES PRESENTS LEGIO

New York 4th of March, 2009 - Today Paradox Interactive label Mezmer Games officially announces the game Legio from Sweden-based developer ICE Game Studios.

Legio is a turn-based strategy game for one to two players. The game takes place in a mythical fantasy world where magicians, warriors and monsters battle for domination. Playing Legio is an intense experience, requiring careful strategic thinking, rewarding both courage and cleverness!

The game is a mix between chess and a turn-based war game. Both players control an equal army of characters, with the goal of eliminating the other player's army. Learning to play Legio is quite easy, but it is a great challenge to master all the various strategies.
