Gen Con Digital Report #5





Dave and I had a great time at Gen Con this year. We can safely say that digital board games are back in a big way in 2016 (after a lackluster 2015). Each of these 25 videos is packed with info, announcements, and more.



Ascension VR
Ascension feels like one of the pioneers of digital board games, so it is great to see it be one of the first to enter the rising VR space. Watch me look like a dork in the video below.





White Wizard Reveals What is Next in Digital
We had the chance to chat with White Wizard games about what's coming next from their digital efforts.





Mutant Chronicles Returns
As we announced during Gen Con, Mutant Chronicles is returning in digital form. Check out our full interview below.




Eternal from Dire Wolf Digital
Before we discovered they were working on Lanterns, we checked out Dire Wolf Digital's original digital card game: Eternals.




Boss Monster in VR
Brotherwise Games was showing off Boss Monster in VR. Come watch me look like a dork...again.




Archmage Rises
While not a board game port, we stumbled across this interesting simulation game. In it you play a mage and have freedom to shape your life in many ways. For those that love storytelling and building a world, this is for you.

Check out the video to see how it is coming along.





Pathfinder Adventures Updates from Obsidian
We had the chance to chat with Obsidian Entertainment about the future plans for Pathfinder Adventures. See the full details the video.

Calliope Games is teaming up again with Thunderbox Entertainment to bring Roll For It! to digital platforms. See the first screenshots in the video below.

Gen Con Digital Report #2





Dave and I had a great time at Gen Con this year. We can safely say that digital board games are back in a big way in 2016 (after a lackluster 2015). Each of these 25 videos is packed with info, announcements, and more.



Codenames Digital Appears
Next up from Czech Games Edition, we got to check out Codenames with Vlaada Chvátil. Last year we just got a tease and now we have a the first gameplay footage. This is one you don't want to miss.





Evolution Gameplay Revealed for the First Time
We had the chance to chat with North Star Games, LLC about their growing digital team. Best of all, we got in-depth look at the upcoming digital version of Evolution. Things are looking great!





Galaxy Trucker Update Coming
The Galaxy Trucker app has been one of the most enduring games in the genre. CGE has continued to push the envelope with new updates and things that could really only happen in-app. This Alien Technologies app, coming soon, they've really leaned into that. This is a selection of challenges each featuring new rules, some that only work in a digital format.





Academy Games Digital Updates and Surprises
We've known Academy Games has been hard at work with HexWar on 1775: Rebellion for digital platforms. At Gen Con we learned that they are also working on Conflict of Heroes: Guadalcanal – The Pacific 1942 as well. This sounds like an awesome future for wargaming on mobile.





Handelabra Chats Sentinels Season 2
Sentinels of the Multiverse has been one of our most followed digital board games. It is exciting to see it more on to Season 2. We were lucky to have the chance to chat with Jeremy about what is coming next.





A Wild Super Dungeon Tactics Appears
One of the biggest surprises for us at the show was Super Dungeon Tactics, a digital take on Super Dungeon Explore. It looks like it will be coming in October. You can learn more details in the video.

Dave and I had a great time at Gen Con this year. We can safely say that digital board games are back in a big way in 2016 (after a lackluster 2015). Each of these 25 videos is packed with info, announcements, and more.



Asmodee Digital is Very Busy
They've asked us to hold the video for later, but as we tweeted, Asmodee is working on many digital projects. These include: Spot it!, Mr. Jack, Mysterium, Colt Express, and Mr. Jack Pocket.



Through the Ages Digital Shown Off
The first of three previews coming from Czech Games Edition at the show, we got to check out Through the Ages with designer Vlaada Chvátil. It seems to be coming along nicely and has some hints of Codito designs (which is nice to see). They're still on track for a 2016 release.





Cool Mini or Not Reveals Zombicide and Xenoshyft Continued Support
For the first time we got to sit down with the folks from Cool Mini Or Not. They let us know that they'll be continuing support for XenoShyft: Onslaught with the Dreadmire expansion and revealed that a Zombicide app is on the way!





Atlas Games Talks Gloom Digital and Kickstarter
We had a brief chat with the folks at Atlas Games about the in-progress digital version of Gloom. They made sure to highlight the Kickstarter which is going on now.





A Closer Look at Tokaido
We'd previously seen Tokaido the app at Origins Game Fair, and, at Gen Con, Dave and I had the chance to go hands on. It may be one of the most beautiful board game apps ever. Check it out.





Fantasy Flight Games and a slew of Helper Apps
Earlier this year, Fantasy Flight Games introduced the Road to Legend app for Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition). Just before Gen Con they announce Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition which features heavy app integration. Lastly, they also announced similar integration coming to Imperial Assault in 2017. See the interview for the full details.

App News: Mutant Chronicles: Doomtrooper Returns

mbmbmbmbmb
After many years being off the market, Doomtrooper is coming back. This time it will be an entirely digital CCG. Looks like this will be a joint project between Cabinet and Secret Cow Level. We had the opportunity to speak with the team behind this at Gen Con. Check out our interview for full details:



For more details you can head to their website and check out the full release:
Quote:

Cabinet Entertainment and Secret Cow Level are glad to announce the return of the Doomtrooper CCG on digital platforms. Development is already underway and a Kickstarter campaign is planned for the fall to give the game some added features and finishing touches. Bryan Winter, the original creator, is working with the development team to update the game and its rules for a modern audience. The team is currently reaching out to bring in more renowned designers, writers and artists to the project.

“We've been huge fans of Doomtrooper since its debut in 1994. Since I started working in the game industry it has been a dream of mine to create a digital version of Doomtrooper, so my friends and I could play together again now that we all live in different areas. Imagine my surprise and excitement when I discovered that Cabinet Entertainment was located literally down the street from me, which made this close collaboration possible,” said Justin Reynard of Secret Cow Level.

The game is developed to be cross-platform which will give you the ability to play Doomtrooper with anyone, no matter which device they use or what region of the world they live in. The internal alpha is currently running on OSX and Windows, with iOS/Android soon to follow.

“When Doomtrooper was originally launched it catapulted into one of the most popular CCGs on the market. Despite being out of print for more than 15 years, gamers worldwide kept the flame alive. When we met Justin we knew we had the right partner and we look forward to introducing a new generation of gamers to this amazing CCG,” said Fredrik Malmberg of Cabinet Entertainment.

Mutant Chronicles is a futuristic and dystopian world where mankind, divided into warring mega-corporations, largely has fled the devastated Earth, and colonized and terraformed the inner solar system and the Asteroid Belt. The opening of an alien portal on a newly discovered planet beyond our solar system inadvertently allowed the Dark Soul to seep into our plane of existence, and to unleash its Apostles and the Dark Symmetry. This permeating force corrupts mankind’s technology and sets it back several hundred years. Not only do the mega-corporations fight one another, now they face an even bigger threat, towards all of them.
The Mutant Chronicles franchise has its origins in the 90s and was wildly successful with two editions of the RPG, several board games, a computer game, the Warzone miniature game, and the Doom Trooper CCG, which had over 1,200 individual cards and sold more than 170 million cards in 16 languages. During the past few years the world of Mutant Chronicles has rapidly grown in popularity again with an RPG from Modiphius Entertainment, and the Warzone miniatures game from Prodos Games. A new version of the classic “Siege of the Citadel” board game is in development, also from Modiphius Entertainment, in partnership with Cabinet Entertainment.

Tokaido at the BGG Booth
While at Origins, W. Eric Martin was kind enough to get us a quick demo of the Tokaido app. You can check out the video here:



Galaxy of Trian Released, Fix on the Way
As we announced two weeks ago, Galaxy of Trian has been released on iOS. They’ve reached out to let us know that there is a bug in multiplayer, but they are working on a fix now.

I haven’t had a chance to check it out, but we will have a review up once we do.




Magic the Gathering Puzzle Quest Launches Oath of the Gatewatch
Magic the Gathering Puzzle Quest was one of our surprises from last year. It is a fun puzzle game that uses the Magic IP in a great way. It has now been updated with a new card set called Oath of the Gatewatch. On top of that, they’ve introduced a brand new PVE mode where you can play to earn rewards each week. It is a little gem that seems to keep getting better.

You can get Magic the Gathering Puzzle Quest on iOS and Android.




Out There Chronicles Coming July 7th
Mi Clos is at it again with further adventures in the world of Out There. If you didn’t originally play Out There, you can think of it as the thinking man’s FTL.

Over There Chronicles is a graphic novel based on the award-winning game series. It looks like it will be released this Thursday. This is definitely one to keep an eye on. Check out the trailer below:




Pokemon Go Out-ish
Ok, so this is not a board game, but if this doesn’t at least make you curious as a mobile device fan, then I can’t help you. Niantic, the team behind Ingress, has released Pokemon Go. This augmented reality game has capturing Pokemon from the world around you.

The game is out now in the US on Android, and in AU and NZ on iOS. Hopefully we’ll see it in the US soon!
