Asmodee has released some information about two upcoming Bombyx releases for 2016. First is Histrio, a family weight game where you are an acting troupe trying to win the favor of the King. But it’s not as easy as it sounds, the King’s mood is fickle and will figure heavily into how he likes your play, plus the other players will be playing dirty tricks or shenanigans on you to mess you up. Whoever can recruit the best actors and put on the best plays to get the most money will be the winner in the end. Expected release is 2nd quarter of 2016.
Second is Zany Penguins, another family weight game where you are a band of penguins trying to take over the world as the ice caps melt. The game is essentially a light area control game where you are playing your better penguins to the areas you want to score and your weaker penguins to your opponent’s areas to mess with their plans. The art is very nice and the game is expected to be released the first quarter of 2016.
