Lanterns Coming to Digitial Devices

San Diego, CA (March 21, 2016) — Renegade Game Studios™, the premier publisher of innovative games is pleased to announce a partnership with Dire Wolf Digital to bring high quality board games to the digital space. The first title under the new partnership is Lanterns: The Harvest Festival which will be released on mobile devices later this year. A store locator within the app will direct players to local brick and mortar stores where they can find the physical version of the game. 

Lanterns: The Harvest Festival is a tile placement game set in imperial China. Players act as artisans decorating the palace lake with floating lanterns. The artisan who earns the most honor before the festival begins wins the game.

Lanterns’ elegant and engaging gameplay by designer Christopher Chung features a unique perspective-based mechanic that forces players to balance the benefits they receive from placing tiles with the benefits they give to the their opponents. This deceptively simple gameplay lends itself brilliantly to the digital space. 

Lanterns has been nominated for a slew of awards since it's release in 2015 including Golden Geek Family Game of the Year, Geek & Sundry Best Board Game of 2015, Cardboard Republic Best Socializer Game of the Year, and SXSW Tabletop Game of the Year. 

"Mobile games are a great way to introduce new fans to this industry that we love. Dire Wolf was a pleasure to work with on the FUSE app and we are thrilled to be partnering with them again to bring Lanterns to a wider audience" remarked Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios. 

Dire Wolf Digital President Scott Martins: “Renegade publishes games that we love, and we’re thrilled to partner with them. Board games have always been part of our long term vision for Dire Wolf as a company, and Lanterns is a fantastic first opportunity for us to explore the realm of digital boardgaming.”

The digital version of Lanterns from Dire Wolf Digital will be available later this year.
