Sept 1, 2017

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.

November 21st, 2015

Currently on Steam Early Access for $5, DICETINY is a card-based, parody RPG.

Players roll and move around the board, playing cards to attack monsters and other players. The board will provide quests, money, and random events along the way. The card system works similarly to Hearthstone, were each card costs AP and you gain more and more AP every turn.

A long time ago in a board far,far away…. (Further than your grandma’s house) Ancient lords of the races found a sacred board, and they were given a pair of dice created by the Greater Power. Three for the Elves, seven for the Dwarves, nine for the Humans…. and ONE DIE that rules them all. DICETINY!

Save Middle Board from a very very evil and serious sage named Dead Serious and his followers in this Card-boiled RPG Under the Influence. Before you know it, you will be laughing at humors and parodies sandwiched between Fantasy and Popular Culture!

The wait is over!

You can now get your copy of Space Hulk for your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita created by Funbox Media along with HR Games. You can order them from the Funbox Media website.

Space Hulk pits a squad of Space Marine Terminators versus deadly Genestealers in the cramped and claustrophobic corridors of a Space Hulk, a derelict spaceship that is comprised of the shells of various spaceships crunched together.

The video game emulates the board game in how it works, so if you know how to play the board game, you already know how to play the video game.
