AUROCH / STEVE JACKSON GAMES AGREE ON DIGITAL OGRE RELEASE

Ogre, the classic game of future tank warfare, will come to PC via Steam next year in a hex/turn based adaptation by experienced Steam developer and publisher Auroch Digital. Ogre raised nearly a million dollars on Kickstarter for its giant Designer’s Edition, and one of the stretch-goal promises was “We will do a computer game.” Here it comes. Work on the project will begin immediately, and the game should be released in late 2017.

ABOUT THE PUBLISHERS Auroch Digital Ltd. is the acclaimed and multiple award-nominated Bristol-based indie games studio, founded by veteran game designer Dr. Tomas Rawlings.

Steve Jackson Games publishes Ogre, Munchkin, Zombie Dice, Chez Geek, and a lot of other board and card games. Its big upcoming project is Car Wars on Kickstarter.

      @Don - No worries!! That most certainly has NOT been forgotten! We're just moving on a few projects at once.

      Thank you all for your enthusiasm about this portion of the project! We're very excited to get the ball rolling on this. We also appreciate the feedback on platforms, we won't be able to talk about that for the time being. -HS

      Very nice to hear.
      Now to what really matters: Miniatures.
      Miniatures, miniatures, miniatures.
      Also, miniatures.

      Android is my preference.

      I don't play games on the PC so yes a IOS version for iPad would be my preference as well. Or XboxOne :)

      Any plans for a non-Steam release (e.g. GOG, HumbleStore) for those who don't want Valve's DRM, privacy and security issues?

      Very cool! I hope that "steam" means both PC and Mac! :-)

      Can't wait to play Ogre on my PC again. Would be nice to have an IOS version too...

    10. Scott Everts on July 15, 2016

      Thank you, thank you! Nice to see this coming on PC first! Unusual these days but much appreciated. Who wants to play on a tiny screen? :)

    11. Roger Leroux on July 15, 2016

      Great news. I too would love to see it available for iPad.

      I'd love to play Ogre on my iPad.

    15. Apocalypse Nerd on July 15, 2016

      Wasn't there talk of doing this as an App game for tablets? or am I wrong?

    16. Jeff Hall on July 15, 2016

      That's wonderful. Any chance of getting the C-64 version ported over as an Easter egg? =)
