Renegade to release Planet Defenders

San Diego, CA (June 22nd, 2017) – Renegade Game Studios™, the premier publisher of unique games is excited to announce Planet Defenders, which will be releasing this fall. Designed by Wei-Min Ling, and originally published by EmperorS4 Games in Taiwan, Planet Defenders challenges players to rid the galaxy of unwanted technological refuse by controlling beautifully sculpted robot miniatures.

In the far future, humans have colonized hundreds of worlds throughout the galaxy. Robots have been in use for centuries and millions have been discarded over the years. Discarded robots litter the galaxy and have become a problem for mankind. Luckily the Planet Defenders protect us and gather up these old robots before they become a real danger to our planets throughout the galaxy!

In Planet Defenders, players pay batteries to control the three defenders, moving them among the planets and collecting energies. Players can enhance their actions by spending energies or batteries to upgrade their technology. They earn the research points by catching the disposed robots in outer space and by collecting technology cards.

“We worked with EmperorS4 to add 3D robot models to Planet Defenders with our release,” explains Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios.  “This game already has such a unique and fun style that the miniatures were perfect for bringing it to life on the table.”

Look for Planet Defenders at your friendly local game store and online Fall 2017.  Two-four future humans of ages 10 and up can expect to defend the galaxy in about 30-60 mins for the low cost of only $45.

Ex Libris Releasing Fall 2017

San Diego, CA (June 1st, 2017) — Renegade Game Studios™, the premier publisher of innovative games will release Ex Libris Fall 2017. Designed by Adam P. McIver, Ex Libris challenges players to compete for the title of Grand Librarian. Art by Jacqui Davis (Bullfrogs, Dicey Goblins), reveals the magical land of curated collections. 

In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving fantasy town. The Mayor has just announced a new seat in the Village Council, Grand Librarian. The prestigious and lucrative position will be awarded to the citizen with the most extraordinary library! Unfortunately, several of your book collector colleagues (more like acquaintances, really) are also candidates.

To outshine your competition, you’ll need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so you’ll need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up - especially if they match your library’s secret focus!

You only have a few days before the Mayor’s Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved in time! She is a tough cookie, and will use her Official Inspection Form to grade your library on several criteria including alphabetical order, shelf stability, prominent works, and variety. And don’t think she’ll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! You’ll need shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!

"Many of us have fond memories of digging through the shelves of our public library, searching for our next favorite book," reminiscences Renegade President Scott Gaeta.  "Pairing this with a fantasy world filled with fun characters is brilliant. Adam has not only designed a solid game but he has also created a delightful world. We're excited to share it with our fans. "

Dig through the shelves of your friendly local game store this fall to find Ex Libris. Two to four gnomes, ghouls, gelatinous cubes and other players ages 10 and up will compete for the title of Grand Librarian over the course of a  45-minute inspection. Each carefully created game will contain the following components: 

  • 1 Folding Town Board

  • 1 Double-sided Dry-erase “Official Library Inspection Form” Board
