Renegade Game Studios announced yesterday this Gen Con will see more Clank! Content with the release of Clank! Expeditions: Gold and Silk. Renegade, in partnership with Dire Wolf Digital describes this expansion as the beginning of a brand new line of products attached to the wildly popular deck building series. It will be available at Gen Con and then have it’s main release in October.
Renegade has also announced the second ever project they will launch on Kickstarter.

Renegade has also announced the first expansion for the game, Shattered Grid, which will feature locations and foes pulled directly from BOOM Studios award winning series.
Pandasaurus Games shared the news that Passtally, a 3D route-building game by Japanese designer, Masaki Suga, is just the first in a line of upcoming announcements for new games we can expect from them. Passtally was published earlier this year by Analog Lunchbox will get a fresh printing and US release in the Spring of 2019. Passtally will be the first Analog Lunchbox to get a US release. Analog Lunchbox is well known from the Japanese Game Market as a publisher with high polish in both game design and graphic development. We will be interested to see if this marks the beginning of the import of their entire line of games to the west.
