Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated to Release in Fall of 2019

Dec 9, 2018

Dire Wolf Digital, in partnership with Penny Arcade, announced the next major installment for the award-winning and best-selling board game Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure.

Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated extends the deck-building fun of Clank! with exciting new legacy-style gameplay! Found your own franchise of the legendary adventuring company Acquisitions Incorporated, and shepherd your fledgling treasure-hunters to immortal corporate glory over the course of multiple games. Your game board, your deck, and your world change as you play to create a unique campaign tailored to your adventuring party. Be cunning, be bold, and most importantly be ready:

Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated will release in the Fall of 2019.

“It’s been difficult to get us to stop playing Clank! at the Penny Arcade office, and we were delighted that this gave us an opportunity to count that as working time,” said Jerry Holkins of Penny Arcade. “Clank! has been rattling around in our imaginations ever since we first played it on release, so it was a real delight to finally get to see some of those ideas realized in the actual game.”

“We’re beyond thrilled to be working with the mad scientists at Penny Arcade to make some Clank!-y noise in the Acquisitions Incorporated universe,” said Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf Digital. “We’ve been fans of PA for years, and Acq Inc is such a great sensibility fit with Clank! that we jumped at the chance to bring the two together. It’s like getting chocolate in your peanut butter.”

Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated will be available from your friendly local game store next Fall, finally allowing players to live, as we do, as immortal forever-kings of this timeless corporate entity.

Betrayal At House on the Hill LEGACY Announced at PAX Unplugged

Nov 17, 2017

At PAX Unplugged today, designer Rob Daviau and Wizards of the Coast president Chris Cocks announced the forthcoming release of Betrayal Legacy!

Betrayal: Legacy is a new take on Betrayal at House on the Hill, a 2004 title that Daviau contributed to when he worked full-time for Hasbro. Avalon Hill released a second edition of that game in 2010, with an expansion, Widow’s Walk, in 2016 and a Dungeons & Dragons-themed standalone version, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate being released in 2017.

Betrayal Legacy is a narrative driven game that combines the concept of exploring a haunted mansion from that first game with the permanency and multi-game storytelling exhibited by Daviau’s Risk Legacy and other legacy games that followed. Betrayal Legacy, which will be released in Q4 0218, consists of a prologue and a thirteen-chapter story that takes place over decades. Players represent families, with specific members of a family participating in one story, then perhaps an older version of those characters (assuming they lived) or their descendants showing up in later stories.

Daviau served as lead designer on Betrayal Legacy, with others contributing elements, designing haunts, and developing the material. He says that while Betrayal at House on the Hill played with a lot of horror movie tropes, Betrayal Legacy is built more around horror stories, with players creating their own story over the course of the game as they encounter roughly one-third of the fifty haunts included. Once you close the final chapter, you’ll have your own unique version of Betrayal Legacy that can be played again.

Pandemic Legacy Season 2 Release Announced by Z-Man Games

June 26, 2017

The world is on the brink of total collapse. Already devastated by a terrible plague, much of the globe has gone dark. Small groups of survivors struggle to keep the world alive, but their efforts are no longer enough. The world needs leaders to rise up and find the way back from the brink of extinction. That task has fallen to you. You must find a way or nobody will. You are humanity’s last chance.

Z-Man Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, the standalone follow-up to the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Pandemic Legacy: Season 1.

A cooperative legacy game for two to four players, Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 immerses players in a harrowing tale of survival. It is seventy-one years after the events of Pandemic Legacy: Season 1, and humanity has been brought to its knees. A network of the last known cities persists, supplied by the “havens,” isolated stations floating in the ocean far from the plague. Three generations of survivors have called the havens home. Most of them have never set foot on the mainland. But now supplies are running low and the people have turned to you to lead. It is up to you to save what remaining cities you can and stop the world from ending for good.

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 offers a dynamic experience that sweeps players up in a desperate fight for survival. Having grown up on the havens, the mainland is largely a mystery to you. But now you must travel there to maintain the grid of remaining cities and explore the areas of the world that have fallen dark.

This task will not be easy. The plague has hit the mainland hard and there is no hope of developing a cure. The cities that remain need the supplies you provide to keep hanging on. Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 presents a unique spin on the classic Pandemic formula. The City, Epidemic, and Event cards all return, but instead of removing Disease cubes from the board, you must now add Supply cubes to ward off the plague.

Starcat Games launchs Legacy card game Kickstarter

June 23rd, 2014

Starcat Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Legacy, their new fantasy card game.

Legacy uses an interesting Line-of-Sight Combat system, making placement of your characters as important as which characters you play.

There are 3 types of cards, each broken into two categories.

Characters Cards: Heroes and Minions
Item Cards: Normal and Relic
Event Cards: Magical and Physical.

Void cards can be any type of the above mentioned cards, and can be retrieved from the Void using Void Points which you can gather during game play.

For beginners, the Game is easy to learn and has a fast pace to it.

For advanced card gamers, there is a rich level of complexity with the hero leveling system or Team Attacking!
