Announcing Overlight, A Novel Fantasy Setting

San Diego, CA (August 18th, 2017) Renegade Game Studios is excited to announce the creation of a novel fantasy setting, Overlight. The first product announced within this world is a role-playing game designed by Paul Alexander Butler and George Holland, expected for release in 2018.

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.

"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 the 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.

Overlight will be launching in 2018.  Don’t be in the dark. Sign up for future updates here or visit worldofoverlight.com for more information.

New Stand Alone Game in the Clank! Universe Announced: Clank! In! Space!

San Diego, CA (August 6th, 2017) – Renegade Game Studios and Dire Wolf Digital are proud to announce that fans of Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure will soon have a whole new stand-alone adventure to explore, Clank! In! Space! This new big box game will offer players a chance to escape an alien starship using the same exciting system developed in the original Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure.

The evil Lord Eradikus has all but conquered the galaxy, and is now on a victory lap across the sector in his flagship, Eradikus Prime. He may rule with an iron grip, but his most prized artifacts are about to slip through his cyborg claws. You and your fellow thieves have challenged each other to sneak aboard his ship, hack your way into its command module, and steal from him.
 
Along the way, you’ll recruit allies and snatch up extra loot. But one false step and—Clank! Careless noise draws the attention of Lord Eradikus. Hacking into his command module and stealing his artifacts increases his rage. You’d better hope your friends are louder than you are if you want to make it to an escape pod and get out alive…

Designed by Paul Dennen and co-published with Dire Wolf Digital, Clank! was released in October 2016. Following an extremely successful launch, it has been expanded with Clank! Sunken Treasures. The game has received numerous awards and nominations including the Mensa Select Award, Origins Board Game of the Year Nomination, and a “Runner Up” designation in the prestigious Board Game Geek Golden Geek Awards.   
 
“The Clank! Deck-Building Adventure System mixes the right amount of push-your-luck suspense, character creation, and interesting game choices,” states Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios. “It’s just such a fun system that players have been asking for more. Clank! In! Space! brings all that adventure to a new and more challenging setting.”

“The team here at Dire Wolf couldn’t be more delighted by the phenomenal reception that Clank! has received since its debut at Gen Con a year ago,” says Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf Digital.  “The support the game has received has been incredible – it’s been a blast to know that there are so many people out there who love playing Clank! as much as we do.”

Gen Con attendees will be able to purchase a limited number of copies at the Renegade Game Studios booth (#2211) and will receive an exclusive Code Red promo card at the Dire Wolf booth (#2811) with the purchase of the game. Demos will also be available at both locations and the Renegade event area in the Event Hall. 

Clank! In! Space! will be available this fall at friendly local game stores everywhere. This stand-alone game is ideal for 2-4 adventures that are at least 13 years old. We expect that it will take most treasure hunters about 60 minutes to escape, if they are quick, quiet, and lucky.

You started a band to have fun, and now you’re going to get your butts kicked by robots. And who wants to deal with the headache of dating? Look, we’ve all got baggage. Some of us have drama that likes to pick fights and exes that like to throw punches. Love is a battlefield! So you’d rather sit on the couch throwing punches in your favorite video game. Hey, who’s going to stop you? Demons, fireballs, giant purple dudes?? Sounds like a bummer! If you want to keep living your precious little life, maybe it’s time to get it together and go up against the world!
