An especially jam-packed update for you on what the studio has been doing this month. Let’s just get stuck straight in...

Ogre receives G.E.V. update, Mac version

Ever since launch we’ve been updating Ogre with the most requested features. The latest G.E.V. update brings with it whole new scenarios to play through, plus a number of quality of life updates that should please fans of the game.

You can see more of the game over on Ogre’s Steam store page, plus read up on the full lists of post-launch updates here.

Find out more about how we made Ogre in the Ogrezine

The Ogrezine is an upcoming Ogre magazine from Steve Jackson Games dedicated to the classic tabletop game.

We were fortunate enough to be asked to provide an article for the publication and we decided to do something a bit special: a behind-the-scenes look at the design challenges we faced when making the digital adaptation. You can read the piece that will appear in the magazine here.

Elections of US America Elections: The Card Game gets open source cards

We’ve often been asked whether we could add a specific candidate or political event to Elections and this month we’ve gone one better. Players can now access a number of the cards as open source Photoshop files over on Board Game Geek and we’re hoping we’ll see interesting new cards made by the community. For full details about all this head over to the game’s Kickstarter page.

IP thought leader piece up on Creative England

Creative England asked us to write a piece for their site about why we enjoy working with other company’s intellectual property and we jumped at the chance. You can find our article “IP opportunity: why turning fictional worlds and big brands into compelling games and play experiences can be so rewarding for IP holders and developers” on the Creative England website.

We’re speaking at Gamesforum 2018
