Catalyst Game Labs has announced that they have acquired the license to make tabletop games based on the Master of Orion computer game universe. Their first game as part of that series will be a deck-building game called Master of Orion: Conquest. But that is only the beginning of what they have planned.
From the announcement:
The original Master of Orion (MoO) computer game released in 1993, creating the 4X video game genre and capturing the attention of strategy loving gamers for over 30 years. The Master of Orion series has been featured on numerous “greatest games of all time” lists; several retrospective reviews from such established gaming media sites as GameSpot and IGN regard MoO as the standard by which turn based strategy games set in space are judged.
This iconic series was most recently rebooted by WG Labs as Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars—featuring immersive gameplay and garnering a nomination for the 34th Annual Golden Joystick Awards 2016 PC Game of the Year.
Now tabletop gamers can also “Conquer the Stars” as Catalyst Game Labs has inked a deal to publish a stellar series of games based in the storied Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars universe. First to arrive will be the galaxy crushing dueling deckbuilder: Master of Orion: Conquest.
“WG is proud to partner with Catalyst Game Labs to deliver the universe of Master of Orion to tabletop gamers with the first product; the Master of Orion: Conquest dueling deckbuilder game,” stated Michael Buonagurio of WG Labs. “The wealth of experience Catalyst brings to the project will now deliver this venerable and loved video game to a new audience of gaming communities.”
“Anyone who has ever lost a large piece of their soul to a 4x game understands their appeal,” said Loren Coleman, Owner of Catalyst Game Labs. “And Master of Orion rates among the best. Focusing on fleet engagements, Conquest brings X-termination to the fore!”
