• U.S. publisher Renegade Game Studios has announced that effective immediately, its title will be available to hobby store retailers in the U.S. solely through Alliance Game Distributors and ACD Distribution. From the press release: "Renegade will continue to offer games to Canadian retailers exclusively through Universal Distribution and other international distributions lists will also remain unchanged."

More from the announcement:
"Focusing our sales and marketing efforts through ACD and Alliance will allow us to more closely monitor and rebalance our stock levels, offer clear promotional programs, and communicate more regularly with the sales reps which stores rely on for their regular orders," said Renegade's Director of Sales and Marketing, Sara Erickson.

Stores can look forward to the continuation of programs including Play Renegade, which utilizes promotional kits to encourage in-store play. A Play Renegade kit for Eternal: Chronicles of the Throne is on pre-order now through both Alliance and ACD. The upcoming release of Architects of the West Kingdom: Age of Artisans, will also be supported with a free Architects of the West Kingdom promo pack with pre-order of the upcoming expansion.
• In other news from the company, Renegade notes that designer Matt Hyra, formerly with Cryptozoic Entertainment, has joined the Renegade team. Here's an excerpt from the press release announcing this move:
"I came to Renegade to join a great up-and-coming company that moves fast, and makes great games," said Matt Hyra. "Having worked at two previous game companies with Scott Gaeta [those companies being Upper Deck and Cryptozoic —WEM], I knew the environment, ambitions, and creative direction would sync with my own. I look forward to working with the great stable of designers that already work with Renegade."
