Thunderstone coming to Social Network and Mobile Devices

August 16th, 2011 | Category: News, Thunderstone Online
San Diego, CA – August 15th, 2011 – Zabu Studio, Inc. a developer of Facebook and mobile games, and Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG), publishers of the award winning Legend of the Five Rings, today announce that they have entered into a strategic partnership to bring their best selling Thunderstone franchise to the Facebook, iOS, and Android platforms.
“AEG’s Thunderstone property is one of the best of breed in the new genre of deck building games, with engaging play and a strong theme”, said Milton Soong, CEO of Zabu Studio, Inc. “Beginning with our first business proposal, AEG and Zabu Studio, inc. shared a similar vision regarding taking this property to the digital realm.”
Todd Rowland, Director of Marketing for AEG adds, “Thunderstone has been greatly enjoyed by many board gamers since its release in 2009. We are excited to work with Zabu to bring Thunderstone to multiple platforms, which will open the game up to broad range of new fans.”
Thunderstone Online will offer a custom designed campaign mode where the player will start as a humble villager, then battle his way through different challenges and to unlock more and more village cards. There will also be a single player skirmish mode where the player can battle the AI with all the cards in his disposal. Multiplayer mode will also be offered (both online synchronous and asynchronous). The base offering will be free to play, and players may pay for additional expansion packs which will include new cards and campaigns.

This is great news and I've never played Thunderstone before.

This should be a sign to game publishers: If you create an electronic version of the game and I (or other gamers) like it, we're going to buy a physical copy also.

Another thing I like about this is that they are targeting both iOS and Android at the same time (not to mention Facebook also.)

Zabu's classy. They have been bringing Knizia games to Facebook as single-player "social games" with very nice sound and graphics.

I have been using apps.facebook.com/thunderstone

It is the one from AEG. I found the link on another forum post here on BGG but I can't find that post now. If you find it, feel free to friend me on FB or look for me on the game. Just mention BGG so I dont block your request!
