Precipice

Little Red Dog Games

Ryan Hewer, Project Director, Programmer
Krystal Hewer, Creative Director, Digital Artist
Denis Comtesse, Associate Programmer
Meghan Catling, Associate Artist

Precipice is a minimalist one or two-player game where one of the core mechanics involves keeping your rival from “flipping the table” if they are placed in an unrecoverable losing position.

Taking inspiration from Chris Crawford’s 1985 classic Balance of Power, and other Cold War themed games including Twilight Struggle, Precipice is a tense stand-off where aggressive gameplay can always be challenged by your rival, leading to potentially tense standoffs where either party can escalate the consequences of backing down. If things get too volatile, a player can send both nations hurtling towards nuclear war, resulting in a potential loss for both parties (and the planet).

Players, therefore, must engage in careful quid-pro-quo diplomacy, clandestine behavior, misdirection and, at times, bluster and saber-rattling to accomplish their objectives. The nations of the world are pawns in “the great game”, and are each represented as playful, low-poly characterizations of foreign leaders re-imagined as animals appropriate to their region.

Precipice has several AI personalities to choose from in single-player, but really shines in online play where friends and rivals can anticipate and counter each other’s strategies while appealing for prestige in the courtroom of public opinion.

Humanity spent half a century on the precipice of global nuclear annihilation. That anxious uncertainty is manifested in every action in our latest strategy game. Will your support of communist rebels go unnoticed? Will your intelligence-backed installation of a favorable dictator succeed? And above all else, in your struggle for supremacy, can you keep the world from falling into the abyss of nuclear hellfire?
