Graphic Novel Aquicorn Cove is becoming a board game
Renegade Game Studios is currently working on The Aquicorn Cove Board Game, designed by Steve Ellis, Tyler Tinsley, Ben Eisner and Tim Eisner. This game is adapted from the Oni Press original graphic novel by Katie O’Neill, who is also the Eisner Award-winning author of The Tea Dragon Society and Princess Princess Ever After.
"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."
In Aquicorn Cove players take on the roles of members of a small fishing village struggling to survive while maintaining a balance with the natural world. The players must work together and they win if they can can feed and grow their village while at the same time restoring the health of the reef and aquatic ecosystem. Fortunately, the waters of their cove are home to the beautiful and benevolent Aquicorns and 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.
The Aquicorn Cove Board Game is for 2-4 player and planned for release in late 2019.
