I received the following press release from Stronghold Games:
Somerset, NJ and Rochester, NY – March 31, 2014
Stronghold Games and BrokenMyth Studios are proud to announce jointly the release of Core Worlds Digital, the digital implementation of the very successful and highly-acclaimed deck-building card game by award-winning game designer Andrew Parks.
The release of Core Worlds Digital will coincide with the release of another expansion for the Core Worlds base game, Core Worlds: Revolution. Furthermore, the Core Worlds Web Comic will be launching within the same timeframe. All 3 of these projects are slated for the fourth quarter of 2014, ensuring a very enjoyable holiday season to all the fans of Core Worlds.
Core Worlds Digital will provide a new venue for experiencing this great game. Core Worlds Digital will not only give the ability to play Core Worlds remotely, but it will allow for a new streamlined, interactive, and engaging cinematic experience for all users. Core Worlds Digital will include multiplayer support via Game Center, AI opponents, pass-and-play, tournament play, match play, in-game rewards, limited edition cards, and in-app purchases that will allow you to customize the look and feel of your deck. Core Worlds Digital will be initially released for the iOS platform.
To kickoff development of Core Worlds Digital, BrokenMyth Studios and Stronghold Games will launch a Kickstarter campaign in April 2014. The campaign will offer unique support levels and incentives that will only be available on Kickstarter. Watch the social media outlets for details of this campaign.
Core Worlds: Revolution, the second expansion for the Core Worlds base game, allows players to delve deeper into the story of the Core Worlds universe. Players will build incredible Advancements on their conquered Worlds, employ Heroic Tactics keyed to specific Heroes in a separate Heroic Deck adjacent to their regular draw decks, and take command of new Heroes.
Core Worlds Web Comic will provide fans with an ongoing look into the characters and events in the Core Worlds universe. The first ten page web comic will introduce the universe and potential plot lines to the readers. Additional five page installments will then be made every six weeks, taking fan feedback into consideration for future chapters. Core Worlds Web Comic will be presented on Inkbot.Net.
“Core Worlds is the most thematic and rich of all the deck-building card games”, said Stephen Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. “The great expertise of BrokenMyth Studios will deliver a cinematic experience for the fans that is second to none. Fans will also continue to enjoy the thematic richness with the Core Worlds: Revolution expansion and take it to the next level with the Core Worlds Web Comic.”
“We are thrilled to be in a partnership with Stronghold Games”, said Jeff Roeters, VP of Business Development of BrokenMyth Studios. “We at BrokenMyth have loved playing Core Worlds since its release. We have a personal interest in delivering a phenomenal digital version of this game, and we plan to do exactly that.”
