Renegade Companion App now includes Clank! 

by App Developer, Dire Wolf Digital

San Diego, CA (Feb 7th, 2017) — Renegade Game Studios™ and Dire Wolf Digital are excited to announce that an update to the freely available Renegade Game Studios Companion App has added bonus game content for the hit game Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure.
 
Clank! fans who download the free Renegade Game Studios Companion App will enjoy "Mini-Quests" that add even more excitement and replayability to the game. An official solo play mode also allows individual players to enjoy the game on their own. 

The app debuted in 2016 with flavorful companion support for the game FUSE, by adding a thematic 10-minute timer with a taunting voice-over to enhance the player's experience. While it is not required to enjoy the game, it does offer players a free upgrade to FUSE. The Clank! portion of the app is also a free, optional add-on. 

"While the FUSE portion of the app creates a thematic atmosphere, the Clank! content is entirely new and can change the outcome of games"  says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. "Clank!'s incredible popularity and expandable nature made it a natural choice for extra digital content within the Renegade Companion App.  "

“Game night around the table with family and friends is a special experience,” says Dire Wolf Digital President Scott Martins. “One of the things we look for when we sit down to play is ‘How can we make it even better?’ Blending table top and digital gaming opens up amazing possibilities for game design and replayability, and we’re pretty excited to be exploring them with Clank!

Dire Wolf Digital also created the acclaimed digital version of Lanterns: The Harvest Festival which is a separate, full game app available for iOS and Android.

Brick Party wins Creative Child Game of the Year Award

San Diego, CA (Nov. 28th, 2016)  – Renegade Game Studios is proud to announce that the upcoming new brick building game, Brick Party, has be selected by Creative Child Magazine as the Game of the Year in the Builder/Construction Games category. Brick Party is available at local hobby stores, Barnes & Noble, and online.  

Brick Party is a very simple game, allowing players to jump right in. Players work in teams using plastic building blocks to create designated shapes. However, only one player can see the shape while the other uses the blocks to build it. Communication is key as the players work together. As a great twist, each round, one communication or dexterity tool is removed. For example, the builders may have to build without using their thumbs, or architects may be blindfolded. Every play puts the participants in comical and memorable situations.

“There are very few games that teach communication skills better than Brick Party. Everyone has played with plastic building blocks so we already have an ingrained idea of what to do with them. Brick Party builds on that shared experience and encourages players to create something new together. It’s hard but very rewarding” explains Sara Erickson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Renegade Game Studios.  

Brick Party is available in North America. In Europe, it was released in 2015 and has been widely successful. English is the most recent localization. Information about the awards can be found here.

Manipulating your position in the player order is crucial for mastering Honshu.
 
"We are always on the lookout for games that are incredibly easy to learn but offer a deep and fulfilling experience. Honshu fits this description perfectly.
