Show Your Gamer Colors With Pride With Special-Edition Overlight Shirts!

At Renegade Game Studios, we strive to create games that support our values of inclusion and respect. One of our main beliefs is that gaming is for everyone no matter their gender, race, or identity. 

To that end, we're launching this fundraiser in support of Kaleidoscope Youth Center, the largest organization in Ohio solely dedicated to serving and supporting LGBTQIA+ youth and their allies. The great people at this organization assist LGBTQIA+ youth in transitioning into adulthood by providing them with education, community, and empowerment. 

Net profits of the sale of these shirts will go to KYC so they can continue their impactful work in the community. See how they've helped youth in Columbus:

The shirt design is based off the World of Overlight - a kaleidoscopic fantasy RPG where Skyborn heroes harness and channel the powers of the rainbow spectrum of light to perform incredible feats. The world of Overlight is profoundly universalist and inclusive, making room for players to see Skyborn versions of themselves in this brilliantly colored world of magic (which you can learn more about here).

You'll be able to pick up your shirt from the Renegade booth at Origins, or have the shirts shipped to you. One of the biggest US board game conventions falls on the same weekend as the Columbus Pride Festival, making it the perfect time to show off your gamer colors. 

We look forward to celebrating pride with you in Columbus or wherever you are!

Sling Boba Drinks With Cute Ingredients In Bubble Tea

Bubble_Tea_Box_No_Shadow_small.png

Boba drinks have never looked so cute! In Bubble Tea, from designer and illustrator AzaChen, you take on the role of a bubble tea shop owner, racing to satisfy thirsty customers.

You can play solo, or with up to four friends (who become rival bubble tea shop owners) in two game modes. Inside the box you'll find a shaker and dice, which you use to shake and roll, which shows the customer's order. You'll then race by using tea base cards and transparent ingredient cards to match the order. You'll want to be both fast and accurate, as customers can be particular about how their drinks are mixed.

You can finish the game in 20 minutes, and despite having mixed a ton of drinks, you'll want to throw the ingredients back in the shaker and play it again.

Hunters Entertainment Rolls The Dice With Altered Carbon Tabletop Role-Playing Game

AlteredCarbonRPG_975pxW_x_450pxH_2R (1).jpg

Skydance teams up with award-winning game publisher

for officially licensed tabletop games starting in 2020

Los Angeles, CA (March 29, 2019) – Skydance Media has reached a multi-year licensing agreement with Hunters Entertainment to produce tabletop role-playing games set within the stunning sci-fi universe of the hit Netflix series, Altered Carbon.

Based upon the best-selling novels by Richard K Morgan, Altered Carbon is set centuries into the future when the human mind has been digitized and the soul itself is transferable from one body to the next. Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years, is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. Netflix recently renewed Altered Carbon for a second season, with Anthony Mackie (Avengers) becoming the new Takeshi Kovacs as the series continues to explore his journey spanning hundreds of years across many different bodies and planets.

The long-term agreement calls for an ongoing series of tabletop RPGs drawing from the full scope of the Altered Carbon series, with direct tie-ins to the highly-anticipated second season from executive producers Alison Schapker (Fringe), Laeta Kalogridis (Alita: Battle Angel) and James Middleton. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross serve as executive producers for Skydance.

“Altered Carbon is such a rich and expansive universe,” says Ivan Van Norman, CMO and Co-Founder of Hunters. “We look forward to producing an equally ambitious and inspired line of games for years to come.”

The games will begin with a crowdfunding campaign for the core RPG manual later this year, with plans for print and digital releases in 2020 through their global publishing deal with Renegade Game Studios.

The Skydance-Hunters licensing deal was brokered by Joe LeFavi of Genuine Entertainment, who will manage the license on behalf of Hunters and serve as an editor on the game itself. LeFavi is no stranger to tabletop, as he is currently managing the master tabletop gaming license for Frank Herbert’s Dune with Legendary and Gale Force Nine. Skydance Media is represented by Evolution.

Renegade Game Studios To Release Breakfast Cereal "Renegade Games Studi-Os" to Friendly Local Grocery Stores

logo-notag.jpg

Renegade Game Studios is excited to announce plans to diversify its product offering to the gaming community with a new product vertical: breakfast cereal. Renegade's team recognizes breakfast as the most important meal of the day, and as it is also often the most fun-packed meal, this move is a natural, logical one. 

Tabletop games and breakfast cereal have many things in common including strong themes, compelling art, and delightful components within the box. After engaging in market research, Renegade Game Studios identified that 46% of gamers who responded to polling didn't consume breakfast cereal, making clear that there was a significant opportunity for a crossover product: a gaming-themed breakfast cereal.

"Renegade Game Studi-Os" will be a standalone breakfast product that is also a fully-compatible snack expansion for the entire Renegade Game Studios catalog. Dry cereal is an ideal food at the gaming table: it can be eaten without utensils and packs a flavorful punch without the risk of contaminating gaming boards and cards with undesirable cheesy dust or grease stains.

"We understand the importance of a balanced breakfast to the lives of gamers," says Renegade Game Studios President Scott Gaeta. "With this move into the cereal market, we can bring gamers together at the table to enjoy both food and games."

Renegade plans on making boxes of "Renegade Game Studi-Os" available for gamers to purchase at Gen Con.

In Glen More II: Chronicles, each player represents the leader of a Scottish clan from the early medieval ages until the 19th century, a leader looking to expand their territory and wealth. The success of your clan depends on your ability to make the right decision at the right time, be it by creating a new pasture for your livestock, growing barley for whisky production, selling your goods on the various markets, or gaining control of special landmarks such as lochs and castles.

Glen More II: Chronicles is a sequel to Glen More, expanding the gameplay substantially compared to the original game.


Features:

  • Create pasture for your livestock, grow barley, sell goods, and gain control of landmarks!

Jeremy D Salinas, Man Vs Meeple
 
“The original Glen More out of the gate already has tooooons of replayability even if you see the same tiles every time just based on the order they came out in but that combined with these Chronicles just puts it through the roof! It's absolutely amazing.”
Richard Ham, Rahdo Runs Through

Glen More II: Chronicles will hit shelves late 2019.  Make sure to join the Renegade Society and be the first to find out more about Glen More II: Chronicles later this year! 

Renegade Game Studios and Oni Press to release The Aquicorn Cove Board Game

Renegade Game Studios and Oni Press are proud to announce The Aquicorn Cove Board Game designed by Steve EllisTyler Tinsley, Ben Eisner, and Tim Eisner.  Adapted from the Oni Press original graphic novel by Katie O’Neill, The Aquicorn Cove Board Game will encourage players to dive into an underwater conservation adventure. This delightful board game is expected to release in late 2019.

Unable to rely on the adults in her storm-ravaged seaside town, a young girl must protect a colony of magical seahorse-like creatures she discovers in the coral reef. From the Eisner Award-winning author of The Tea Dragon Society and Princess Princess Ever After comes Aquicorn Cove, a heartfelt story about learning to be a guardian to yourself and those you love.

When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a big storm, Lana remembers how much she’s missed the ocean—and the strong, reassuring presence of her aunt. As Lana explores the familiar beach, she discovers something incredible: a colony of Aquicorns, small magical seahorse-like creatures that live in the coral reef. Lana rescues an injured Aquicorn and cares for it with the help of her aunt, who may know more about these strange creatures than she's willing to admit. But when a second storm threatens to reach the town, choices made many years ago about how to coexist with the sea start to rise to the surface. Lana realizes she will need to find the strength to stand on her own, even when it means standing up to the people who she has always relied on to protect her.

"As a graphic novel, I wanted Aquicorn Cove to encourage kids to engage with concepts of marine conservation, and make grown-up choices to protect the environment they're going to inherit,"  said Katie O'Neill, author of the Oni Press graphic novel. "I'm thrilled that the game will provide another dimension to this, and bring to life how wonderful and important our oceans and reefs are."

The Tea Dragon Society Card Game was a huge success and we can't wait to share this game adaptation of Katie O’Neill's most recent book with our fans,” said Scott Gaeta, president of Renegade Game Studios. “All of her books have such strong positive messages presented in a fun and magical way. We love what she's done with these graphic novels and are excited to work with Oni Press to bring them to the board game community. ”

"Working with our design team within this wonderful world created by Katie O'Neill has been a pleasure," said Steve Ellis, head of Oni Games. "Creating a family friendly cooperative game with a strong environmental message resonated with both the story and the team at Oni. We hope that the game sparks both conversation and joy."

The Aquicorn Cove Board Game is slated for release late 2018. The Aquicorn Cove graphic novel is currently available at all major booksellers.
