Renegade Game Studios have announced an expansion for Clank! In! Space! where Lord Eradikus continues to be opposed by small pockets of resistance. The evil, cyborg isn’t having any of it and plots to wipe out all resistance with one, grand wicked scheme. Clank! In! Space! Apocalypse! supports 2-4 players, aged 13+, and will play in roughly 60 minutes. It’s designed by Paul Dennen with art by Rayph Beisner.
“The evil Lord Eradikus has all but conquered the galaxy and is now on a victory lap across the sector in his flagship, Eradikus Prime. He may rule with an iron grip, but his most prized artifacts are about to slip through his cyborg claws. You and your fellow thieves have challenged each other to sneak aboard his ship, hack your way into its command module, and steal from him.”
“Along the way, you’ll recruit allies and snatch up extra loot. But one false step and — Clank! Careless noise draws the attention of Lord Eradikus. Hacking into his command module and stealing his artifacts increases his rage. You’d better hope your friends are louder than you are if you want to make it to an escape pod and get out alive…” [source]
Clank! In! Space! is built on the same game system as Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure. Players build a personal deck of cards while playing the game and these cards allow them to move through the spaceship, attack things, and acquire new cards. Running around the ship doing these things makes noise which attracts Lord Eradikus and his attention brings the players doom.
The game is available for pre-order on the Renegade Games website for pickup at GenCon or Essen.
Renegade Games has been partnering with Dire Wolf Digital to bring some of their physical games into the mobile space, such titles include Lotus and Lanterns: The Harvest Festival. So to kick off the holiday season they have announced updates to their digital games of Lotus and Lanterns as well as a new update to their companion app.
Lotus is a game all about forming beautiful flowers and using some area control to make sure that when the flowers finish and score, you are the ones getting the points. The app version of this game brought the game into beautiful 3D with excellent graphics and animation, bringing this simple card game up to another level. The update featured for the app is that the leader-board and friends list of the game is compatible with Lanterns, so now you can challenge friends from either game to either game you own. You can purchase the app in the App Store or on Google Play.
Lanterns is a simple tile laying game where you lay down tiles in order to collection various colored lantern cards. You will then use these lantern cards to make dedications and depending on which array of colors you turn in will net you different points. Like Lotus the app version of Lanterns elevates the game by giving it some beautiful graphics and scenery along with great animation. The app even has the expansion, The Emperor’s Gift, available for download as well. The update featured for the app is that the leader-board and friends list of the game is compatible with Lotus, so now you can challenge friends from either game to either game you own. You can purchase the app in the App Store or on Google Play.
And finally, Renegade games has updated their companion app, adding in some content for their latest game, Clank in Space. Already the app includes content for the games FUSE, Flatline, and the original Clank game. But with this latest update you will now be able to play Clank in Space solo, with you going against the AI as you explore Lord Eradikus’ starship alone. The update has already been made so you can either check your app now, or download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.
