19 likes

We're very close to another stretch goal marked off; the Ogre video game from Auroch Digital will be launching on Steam next Thursday, October 5! I'll let Jake from Auroch fill you in on the details: 

Hello everyone! 

The first impressions of our digital adaptation of Ogre are starting to come in and we couldn’t be more pleased with the reaction! Here are a few of our favourite quotes that we’re currently getting printed up, framed, and put on the wall...

"A videogame everybody wants to see" - PCGamesN 

"Promising to be a feature packed release" - The Wargamer 

"We’re looking forward to taking the reins of the hulking cybernetic leviathan" - Bell of Lost Souls 

"Auroch Digital are something of a specialist at this type of thing" - Rock Paper Shotgun

With the Steam release of Ogre on October 5th less than a week away, make sure you’ve added Ogre to your Wishlist, and thrown your details into the Multiplayer Meeting Post for when the game launches.

Don’t forget to come say hello on the Steam Community and Official Forum, and find out more about the game on the Official Website.

All the best,

Jake Connor

Beta Testers Wanted For The Ogre Video Game

10 likes

Our friends at Auroch Digital, makers of the Ogre video game, are putting out a request for beta testers, and we thought you'd want to know! I'll let them tell you about it . . . -HS

Hello everyone! Jake from Auroch Digital here! We're hard at work on our upcoming video game of Ogre, a digital adaptation of the classic tabletop warfare game from Steve Jackson Games.

Things are coming along really well with the development of the game and we've reached a point where we need your input: beta testing!

In a beta test, we provide you with an unreleased version of the game to take out for a spin - try out the systems we've implemented, see what we've built - and then you give us feedback. You might encounter the odd bug here or there, so we'll expect you to send us bug reports as well.

It's an exciting opportunity to see a game before it's released, as well as providing meaningful criticism to help shape this very special digital adaptation of Ogre.

Want to get involved? Fantastic.

Please read the following instructions carefully . . .

  • With your application to become an official Ogre beta tester, it's crucial that you tell us: 
  • Your full name. 
  •  Which Ogre games (and related expansions) you've played. 
  •  How long, in years, you've been playing Ogre.  
  • The last three video games you played. 
  •  Which platforms (Mac, PlayStation 4, Android tablet, etc.) you currently own and regularly use for gaming. 
  •  Which Ogre unit is your favorite (Mark IV, G.E.V.s, Infantry, etc) and why.

Send all of that information to us via our sign up form by the closing date of September 6 at 5 p.m. UK time and we'll be in touch some time after that date via e-mail to let you know if you've been chosen.

Please note:

  • To participate in this beta you must have Steam, on a Windows PC, running Windows 7 or later. 
  •  Application to the beta does not guarantee that you will be accepted into the beta program and we have the right to revoke access to it at any time, either on an individual or group basis. 
  •  Access to the beta does not include access to the full game when it is released on Steam, so if you wish to continue playing after the beta ends you'll need to purchase the game. 
  •  No screenshots, video footage, or written editorial of this beta may be shared publicly online or in print. The reason for this is simple: things could change quite dramatically between beta and release and we don't want anyone outside of this beta to see an unrepresentative version of the game. (If you're a YouTuber, streamer, or blogger, please get in touch with me via email to ensure you're first in line for preview and review builds.) 
  • The game is very much in development and you should be aware that going into the beta program is an active part of that development. We will expect testers to answer questions and send us information when requested. If you don't want to do those things then this beta isn't for you. 
  • Applying for the beta will also automatically sign you up for the Auroch Digital newsletter. It's completely free and you can opt out at any time. 

Got all that? Ace! Any questions about joining the beta? Feel free to email me at jake@aurochdigital.com. Thanks!

We here at Steve Jackson Games are very proud to announce that the Ogre video game has its own page on Steam as well as on our site, in advance of the release of the full game October 5th by Auroch Digital. Now, interested players may tag Ogre on their wishlists. (Please do!). As many of you know, a computer version of Ogre is one of our few remaining promises from the Ogre Designer’s Edition Kickstarter. With this event, we are one extraordinary step closer to fulfilling our promise to you, the Ogre community.

Additionally, Jake, the Auroch Digital community manager is live right now on our forum set up specifically for the computer game at forums.sjgames.com to answer questions about the forthcoming game.

Seriously.

Go there now. I’m done here.

Ogre. Steam. Who needs fusion reactors anyway? Happy 40th Anniversary, Ogre!

You came back? Well, don’t forget about everything else happening with Ogre:

The Writer's Guidelines for Ogrezine will be up on our site shortly. I will post a link once they're up as well. Send me your submissions!

Name the Ogres, Mark II!

7 likes

Last summer we ran a contest to help choose names for the three Paneuropean Ogres in Ogre Reinforcements. “Ben” was first with the victorious submission “Veni, Vidi, Vici”. Congrats again, Ben!

Well, summer is back, so we’re back at it with another contest to help us name some more Ogres. BUT . . . just as last year’s contest was a Ogre Designer’s Edition backer-only contest, so too this one is restricted – to backers of Ogrezine. You can find all the details at our current Kickstarter for the digital magazine. Good luck!
