North Star Games’ Evolution Evolves with Oceans
After testing the waters with Evolution in 2014, North Star Games has decided to dive headfirst into hobby games with their most ambitious project to date: Oceans.
Oceans is the latest entry into the Evolution Game Series and, a grand cumulation of effort by North Star Games to design the ultimate gamer’s game. Years in the making, Oceans has been a collaborative effort between Nick Bentley (veteran game designer and former neurobiologist), Brian O’Neill (professor of marine biology), and Dominic Crapuchettes (award-winning game designer with 3 million units sold).
Whereas the previous games in the Evolution series were bound exclusively by the science (and the core of this game is as well), Oceans expands upon it with a new set of cards called “The Deep”. This fantastical set of new cards stretch the boundaries of the game from science, to science fiction by including creatures like the Leviathan and the Hydra.
North Star Games is looking for outside playtest groups to explore this game – ahead of the game’s release set for 2019.
OCEANS will be Kickstarted in February 2019. And will be available in wide-release in September 2019.
