Overlight

August 31, 2017

Renegade Game Studios is excited to announce the creation of a novel fantasy setting, Overlight.

Overlight is a fantasy roleplaying game of kaleidoscopic journeys: a visceral, dangerous, and brightly-colored setting. Characters will search for personal meaning among a fantastic, sometimes violent, and overwhelming world.

The first product wiithin the Overlight world is a role-playing game designed by Paul Alexander Butler and George Holland, expected to release in 2018.

“We want to return a sense of wonder to fantasy roleplaying. Elves and Dwarves and Orcs are great, but we’ve seen them done countless times, and we want to take players someplace they haven’t been before,” explains Paul Alexander Butler, co-creator of Overlight.

“I’m so excited to be working with Paul and George to bring their unique world to life. The Roleplaying game is a great way to introduce everyone to Overlight and the world is so rich that we decided not to stop there. We have a lot of plans for the World of Overlight and I can’t wait to tell you all more about it,” says Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios.

Flip your ships to take out the encroaching enemies, and to take down the powerful mother ship before it’s too late.

January 7th, 2017

Renegade Game Studios has partnered with Lautapelit.fi to release a Honshu, a city building card game, in North America.

Honshu is a map-building card game set in feudal Japan. Players are lords and ladies of noble houses seeking new lands and opportunities for fame and fortune.

One game of Honshu lasts twelve rounds, and each round is divided into two phases. First, map cards are played in a trick, and the player who played the highest valued card gets to pick first from those cards played. Then the players use the map cards picked to expand their personal maps. Each player must expand their personal maps to maximize their scoring possibilities. Manipulating your position in the player order is crucial for mastering Honshu.

Look for Honshu at friendly local game stores in North America and online.  Honshu takes about 30-40 minutes to play and is for 2-5 players ages 8+.
