|If you’re a fan of our small-box trick-taking game The Fox In The Forest but want a game you can play with more than 2 people, you will love Time Chase! |
In this game that accommodates 3-6 players and can be played in 30 minutes, you’ve cracked the code to unlock time travel, but some nefarious colleagues are trying to use your invention to travel back in time and take the credit for themselves!
With the technology of time travel in hand, you’re allowed to travel back in time to previous tricks, known as events, and change their outcome. The first player to control three events in the timeline wins!
We’re really excited about this game, and we’re not the only ones: Dan of Game Boy Geek called it one of his most anticipated games of 2019!
Thankfully you won’t have to wait too long: Time Chase will be available in August at your friendly local gaming store.
|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.

San Diego, CA (March 11th, 2019) —Renegade Game Studios and Oni Press are proud to announce The Aquicorn Cove Board Game designed by Steve Ellis, Tyler 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.
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.
Aquicorn Cove is a cooperative game for 2-4 players. In the game, players take on the roles of members of a small fishing village struggling to survive while maintaining a balance with the natural world. To win, the villagers must feed and grow their village, and help restore the health of the reef and aquatic ecosystem. The villagers are fortunate, though, and the waters of their cove are home to the beautiful and benevolent Aquicorns, as well as the wondrous reef guardian Aure, who can help them both to understand the impact humans are having on the environment, and to save the village.
“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 2019. The Aquicorn Cove graphic novel is currently available at all major booksellers.
