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

San Diego, CA (March 11th, 2019) —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. 

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.
