For a game developed by a tiny studio making what's essentially a digital board game, Armello has one hell of a debut trailer.

There's no gameplay in it, none at all, but Melbourne animation house 12 Field are to thank for the clip above.

Armello is about four houses vying to seize the throne from an insane ruler, and is a mix of board and card game. it's being developed by Aussie studio League of Geeks, and is now right up there on my iPad gaming radar (it's slated for "tablets" in 2013, with "other platforms" TBA).
