Survive: Escape from Atlantis! hits iOS & Android next month08 Mar 2013 0
Big news from the Pocket Tactics Meteorological Lab & Tanning Salon: the 2013 digital board games drought is about to release us from its dusty grip. Classic board game Survive: Escape from Atlantis! is just weeks away from release on Android and iOS.
This translation has been in the works for some time, labored over by the board game's current rightsholder Stronghold Games and their partner Quado Media1. Stronghold honcho Stephen Buonocore told me last night that Survive for mobile is due to launch in the first week of April. This is the first digital game for Stronghold, though they've previously released a companion app for their board games.
Originally a Parker Brothers game, Survive is a race to get as many of your survivors off a disintegrating island before it disappears beneath the waves. This a zero sum game of course, and other players will be trying to impede your progress as they try to save their own refugees. The sort of board game Ayn Rand would have loved.
1Shouldn't they be freeing the people of Mars from their oppressors? Just saying.
