We just got an email from Fantasy Flight Games telling that they are completely overwhelmed with their schedule - and their schedule is, indeed, impressive - and have decided to cancel Argo.

So, this euro / american hybrid, which feels a bit like a cross between Castle and Doom, is looking for a new publisher. Please contact us if interested ;-).

Sorry to hear about that, Bruno! I spoke with FFG last week, and the PR rep seemed like Argo—or The Argo, as they had named it—was a sure thing at some point down the road. Best of luck finding a new publisher.

Damn! I had been waiting for this one for AGES. Bruno, did you have any interested parties in the design before signing the design over to FFG? I imagine you have had plenty of your (influential) friends test the game...

Best of luck with this project.

Oh and another thing... how about posting that pic in the game entry (maybe others if you have them please?) I always wondered how this design looked, but so far there are no images submitted.

Well I hope someone picks this up soon, preferrably a publisher that will include nice miniatures.

I saw this in one FF catalog and immediately put it on my want list. A Faidutti game based on Aliens, doesn't get much better than that.

I really hope that "The Argo" will find a publisher. It really sounds like a cool game!

Maybe I'm being stupid, but I think this could be a perfect candidate for Valley Games 750 Special...

It might be, but with the way that things are going, that would be pushed back til next year as I don't know if they would be able to handle all the stuff that they are promising. I hope you find another publisher.

Sounds perfect for Days of Wonder (they like to go over the top on production values).

As you may have read above, This game'll be published by Flatlined Games.
Release date is 'When it's ready' as usual with Flatlined Games whistle
Hopefully end 2014, but this can vary according to lots of factors so no promises, no miracles.

We'll keep you updated as the development of the game progresses, however

I would love to see a more fleshed out BGG page, perhaps with a gameplay video. The brief description sounds interesting, however I've found videos go a LONG way towards "selling" a game for me. Perhaps it will help with a publisher as well.

This takes time
Argo will be our Essen release, if all goes according to plan.

Saw this on the Essen geeklist - didn't realise it's taken such a long time to come to market.

Looking forward to seeing some reviews and vids for this one.
