ABOUT ABOVE AND BELOW
In the game, you send your villagers to perform jobs like exploring the cave, harvesting resources, and constructing houses. Each villager has unique skills and abilities, and you must decide how to best use them. This meshing of genres does put Above and Below in a different category, but the similarities in character use and city revealing need to be celebrated. For 2 – 4 players, games last approximately 90 minutes.
