Through this partnership, CMON will produce board games based on the long-running Munchkin series made popular by its engaging gameplay by designer Steve Jackson and its cast of fantastic characters illustrated by John Kovalic. CMON will bring this playful universe to life on the tabletop like never before in Fall 2018, beginning with a board game inspired by the highly-successful Arcadia Quest.

Chern Ann Ng, CEO of CMON Limited, said, “Working with Steve Jackson Games to bring fans a new vision of the Munchkinuniverse is an incredible opportunity. Munchkin has been a mainstay within the board gaming hobby for many years, so being able to put our touch on this iconic franchise is truly amazing.

Asmodee Digital, a leader in digital board game entertainment announced that the multi-million selling dungeon adventure card game, Munchkin, created and published by Steve Jackson Games Incorporated, will be reimagined for digital platforms, under license. The upcoming digital adaptation will put everything players love about Munchkin at their fingertips in the next year.

Designed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic, Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure… minus all that pesky roleplaying business. Friends compete to kill monsters and grab hilarious magic items, like the Horny Helmet, Boots of Butt-Kicking, Staff of Napalm, and Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. While their opponents are busy giggling, players are free to backstab friends, steal their stuff, grab the treasure and run!

Without the standard, long-winded RPG elements, Munchkin is not only fun and fast paced, it’s easily one of the most accessible games of its genre.

“We are thrilled to partner with Asmodee Digital for the first adaptation of Munchkin to digital platforms. Munchkin has become an evergreen game over the years and we believe the time has come to offer fans around the world a truly innovative experience,” says Phil Reed, CEO of Steve Jackson Games.

Auroch Digital is bringing their official adaptation of OGRE, the legendary wargame from Steve Jackson Games, to Steam.

Engage in futuristic warfare with armored hovercraft, super heavy tanks, infantry, and giant cybernetic war machines called “Ogres”.

Ogre is a turn-based strategy game of mechanised warfare, requiring tactical decision-making and strategic thinking. It’s the official video game adaptation of the legendary tabletop wargame from Steve Jackson Games, developed by the award-winning Auroch Digital.

In the warfare of the near future, one type of unit inspires such fear that even allies keep a safe distance: the Ogre. These AI-powered tanks are so powerful they’re the equivalent of a battalion of tanks and infantry.

Hovercraft, tanks, marines, infantry, and the monstrous Ogres all take part in an endless world war. As a player, you take command and vie for supremacy on the irradiated battlefields of the future.
