December 3, 2015 – CMON Inc. has announced today that it will be publishing the English version of Sweet Games’ Waka Tanka in America. Designed by legendary game designer Bruno Faidutti, Waka Tanka has players taking on the role of would-be Sioux shamans as they try to win the favor of the titular Waka Tanka, the great spirit of every living thing. Players will need to bluff and deceive other players to win. Illustrated by David Cochard, Waka Tanka promises to bring the same beauty in art and mechanics as CMON Inc. and Sweet Games’ previous title The Grizzled.
A preview of Waka Tanka will be shown in Cannes at the end of February 2016 with a simultaneous international release following shortly after.
