Hunted Cow Studios Targets Victory Point Games for New Ventures

 

Elgin, Scotland – July 7th, 2014: Hunted Cow Studios and Victory Point Games are pleased to announce their partnership to develop and publish digital versions of some of VPG’s most popular titles.

 

Victory Point Games is a boardgame publisher staffed by many digital game developers,”VPG co-founder Alan Emrich remarked. “That’s why we’re so glad to have found our kindred spirits in the digital game publishing industry who ‘get’ manual-to-digital game translations. We’re very excited to be working together with a great publisher, our new friends at Hunted Cow Studios.”

 

Head of Marketing at Hunted Cow Studios, Craig Withers, said, “Everyone at Hunted Cowis incredibly excited to help bring Victory Point Games to a larger audience. At the moment, the first titles we expect to release are the solitaire games Astra Titanus, Dawn of the Zeds, Infection: Humanity’s Last Gasp and Legions of Darkness. The opportunity to work directly with a company of their quality doesn’t come along every day, and we look forward to showing our fans what we can accomplish together.”

Astra Titanus is a space opera game where the player must defend their fleet of starships and outrun the threat of the alien Star Titan. Dawn of the Zeds pits you against the perennial threat of the undead, as you co-ordinate the defences of the isolated town of Farmingdale and hold out until a National Guard relief column arrives to save you. InInfection: Humanity’s Last Gasp, you are the director of the Department of Plague Control field office in New York City, with the fate of the human race in your hands as you desperately struggle to find the cure to the terrifying Morbusian virus. In Legions of Darkness, the brave defenders of Highmoor Castle are under siege and you have the responsibility of fending off the evil creatures assaulting the walls.

  1. Hope they will make VPG’s wargames available. The States of Siege (SoS) series should be fairly easy to do, since the AI’s role is already defined. They might even be able to give the player a more active role, since the SoS system can occasionally feel as though the game is playing itself, and you are just on hand to roll the dice. Digital versions will of necessity lack the really high quality game components that VPG has been releasing lately (e.g., Cruel Necessity, Hapsburg Eclipse and Ottoman Sunset), but hopefully the digital versions will have nice graphics as well. Thanks for the update!

  2. Agreed John. Yeah they have a number of games that would suit. Hunted Cow have done some nice implementations of classic hex & counter games. I look forward to see how this goes.

  3. Hey Boardgames in Blighty. I am the designer of the VPG boardgame Infection: Humanity’s Last Gasp (James Baron is my nom de plume–long story). I think Infection would a great game to port since there is no AI to program, I can only think that animated graphics will only enhance the game playing experience and bring the theme out more. Cheers!
