Icaion is an Engine Territory Building, Resource Management eurogame for 2 to 4 players designed by Martino Chiacchiera and Marta Ciaccasassi.
The game tells the story of what is happening in the regions around the giant crystal on the surface of Icaion, the planet below the clouds from which the floating islands of Mysthea detached millennia ago.
If you are a fine strategist and you love indirect conflict between players, you will feel right at home in the frozen regions of Icaion!
The world of Icaion awaits
In Icaion you become a Seeker, an expert adventurer, sent out by the Organization to hunt for treasures, Qoam, relics and artifacts from ancient times.
You will have to lead a convoy to the barren and cold lands surrounding the City bringing back as much as you can.
Once outside you will compete with other Seekers for resources and lands. Sabotage and subterfuge is always expected from the leaders of the rival expeditions.
Beware, in the farthest lands from the City a titanic being lurks, moving relentlessly while spreading an illness all over the world. This Colossus has been a mystery for the people of Icaion and you will inevitably cross its path.

The game features more than 70 highly detailed miniatures, from Seekers figurines, to the the vicious parasites that infest the furthest regions from the city. Each mini is sculpted after through character design, to make everything feel alive and part of this mysterious world.
The game will feature a unique oversized miniature of The Colossus.
The Colossus is a terrifying being that roams around the barren lands of Icaion. You will encounter this uncanny creature and you will have to face the infestation that spreads into the lands around it.
Directly below the regions of Mysthea is present an enormous city, built around the crystal that comes out of the land. The crystal emanates such powerful energies that the clouds above are constantly moved by it. The movement of the clouds created a permanent circle, a ring of sunlight between the crystal and clouds, where society developed over the years. The absence of winds and storms with the constant sunny daylight makes this ring of land is the only place where cultivation is possible.
Around the fields lies the rest of the City. Since cultivable land is a finite and extremely rare asset, the City developed in every spot that wouldn’t waste precious land. The city is divided in two circles, the first one closer to the crystal, is where the sunlight is present. This circle is considered the core of the whole society, where the most powerful and influential individuals reside. Outside there is the "region of eternal dusk", an outer circle where the rest of society lives crammed as tightly as possible. All of this is surrounded by a huge wall that encloses the whole city from the dangers present outside.
On the outer rim of the city, just outside the city walls, there are the headquarters, living chambers and hangars of what the Seekers call “the Organization”. This rich and powerful entity manages expeditions to explore, excavate and scavenge in the harsh and dangerous environment outside the wall.
The Organization employs skilled Seekers, heavy vehicles and machinery useful to harvest Qoam and to help them to explore more deeply into the regions. Seekers venture regularly outside of the city in small teams and convoys, to gather precious resources, hunt for treasures, scavenge ancient relics and to ensure that no monster threatens nearby.
Recently, their work has become even harder. They discovered that a huge Colossus roaming the most remote regions is connected with Qoam. The being doesn’t seem directly aggressive but its presence seems to twist the planet since it seems to spread an illness everywhere he crosses.
Mysthea: The Fall
Icaion components can be combined with Mysthea ones to form a third fully stand-alone free game called Mysthea: The Fall.
Myshtea: The Fall is a cooperative territorial defense game for 2-4 players by Martino Chiacchiera and Marta Ciaccasassi. In this title a cataclysm has hit Mysthea, making the five floating islands to fall down on the lands of Icaion.
The two civilizations finally meet for the first time and are immediately forced to cooperate to stop the advance of frenzied creatures, attracted by the giant crystal inside the City.
