Watch the Rise and Fall of Civilizations with Icarus

Icarus

Renegade Game Studios has announced the GM-less macroscopic RPG Icarus is now available for pre-order! Icarus is a collaborative storytelling game about the collapse of a great civilization for 2-5 players and plays in about 2-3 hours.

During the game, you will be stacking dice to represent the construction of this monument, drawing cards from a story deck to create the escalating events in the city, and influencing the outcome of those events through actions driven by your characters’ motives. And when the dice tower finally falls, your civilization falls with it and the game comes to an end.

Wendake is Out this Fall from Renegade Game Studios

Renegade Game Studios has announced the upcoming release of Wendake a unique action selection and resource management game designed by Danilo Sabia. Originally published in Italy and released at Essen in 2017 through Placentia Games and Post Scriptum, Wendake will now be available to North American fans through this continued partnership. The game features art by Alan D’Amico and Paolo Vallerga.

Pre-orders are available now for pick up at Gen Con, August 2-5th. 2018.

Fans can also pre-order Wendake now from their Friendly Local Game Store for delivery in Fall, 2018.

“Wendake” is the name that the Wyandot People use for their traditional territory. This population, also known as the Huron Nation, lived in the Great Lakes region together with the Iroquois, Shawnee, Potomac, Seneca, and many others. In this game, you explore the traditions and everyday life of these tribes during the 1756-1763 period when the Seven Years War between the French and the English took place in these territories.

But this white man’s war is really only a marginal aspect of the game; the focus is on life in the Native villages, fields, and forests. In this game, you won’t find the traditional teepees since those were used by southwestern tribes who moved their camps to follow the herds of buffalo. The Natives of the Great Lakes were sedentary, living in long houses. The women farmed beans, corn, and pumpkins, while men hunted beavers in the forests, mainly to sell their pelts as leather.

In the game Wendake, you are placed in the shoes of a chief of a Native American tribe. You have to manage all of the most important aspects of their lives, earning points on the economic, military, ritual, and mask tracks.

The core of the game is the action selection mechanism: You have the opportunity to choose better and better actions over seven game rounds, and the winner will be the player who can find the best combinations of actions and use them to lead their tribe to prosperity.
