Renegade Game Studios Enters into Co-Publishing Partnership with Knapsack Games

Apotheca and Knee Jerk are first titles to be released!

San Diego, CA (July 23, 2015) — Renegade Game Studios™ is pleased to welcome Knapsack Games™ to their family of co-publishing partners.  Knapsack’s Kickstarter hits Apotheca: The Secret Potion Society and Knee Jerk: The Party Game of Instant Reactions! will be the first to be released under this arrangement.

Apotheca is a 30-minute, potion-crafting strategy game for 1-4 players.

Devise your plans by hiding ingredients in the marketplace.  Reveal secrets to collect precious gems.  Recruit powerful apothecaries to do your bidding. The first apprentice to make three potions becomes a member of the secret potion society!


 Knee Jerk is a 10-minute party game for 4-8 players priced at $11.99.

 Create endings to funny situations in this fast-paced party game. The first player to shout their knee-jerk reaction wins the point!

 "We are really excited to be working with Andrew and his team at Knapsack Games,” says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. “Andrew is an innovative designer with fresh ideas and we couldn’t be more pleased to be working with him.”

 “We are pumped to join Renegade’s stable of high quality games,” says Knapsack founder Andrew Federspiel. “Scott is poised to make Renegade the next great game publisher, and we are stoked to be along for the ride!”

Look for Apotheca to hit stores by summer 2016. Renegade will be demoing Apotheca at Gen Con (booth #3029), the Alliance open house in September, and at the GAMA Trade Show in March, 2016.

Knee Jerk will be available starting in August from all Renegade distributors in North America.
