PRESS RELEASE: “AEGIS” Seeking Support On Kickstarter

October 22nd, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ready for some fast-paced robot combat mayhem?  Of course you are.  If you’re like me, you grew up with games like “Mech Warrior” that allowed you to sit inside the cockpit of a beast filled to the brim with weaponry.  “AEGIS” is a hex-based tabletop tactics game that’s seeking your help on Kickstarter that, you guessed it, involves lots of combat utilizing teams of robots.  There’s only a few days left to support the game, so time is of the essence.

Walter Barber from Greenbrier Games Inc. offered the following press release:

AEGIS – Final Week on Kickstarter

A.E.G.I.S. – Combining Robot Strategy Game’ is a fast-paced, hex-based tabletop tactics game where players use teams of five combining robots to face off against one other in combat. Your squad of robots share energy and fight as one united front. Combine your smaller robots into bigger more powerful ones to change the tide of battle! There are over 80 (now 90!) different robots in five different Classes (Assault, Evasive, Guard, Intel, Support), and finding the right strategy and combos are the keys to victory! It’s designed to be more accessible than your average tactics game, with the same huge depth of strategy. Quick to play, easy to learn and with hundreds of team possibilities, AEGIS is perfect for newcomers to the strategy game scene and wargaming veterans.

A.E.G.I.S. was designed by a team of students at Becker College for a senior capstone project back in 2013. Proceeding to become two-time winners of the business competition Start-Up Worcester, the group evolved into Zephyr Workshop, an independent game company dedicated to creating easy to learn games with distinct IP. In the process of self-publishing A.E.G.I.S., the team met Jeff Gracia of Greenbrier Games, who fell in love with the game and Zephyr Workshop’s entrepreneurial spirit. After agreeing to co-develop and publish the game through Greenbrier Games, A.E.G.I.S. has appeared at dozens of game conventions, and been play tested by tons of fans nation wide. GBG and Zephyr Workshop are proud to present a tactics game with a modest learning curve that does sacrifice any of the depth of strategy that comes from the more expense and complex wargame counter parts.

It can’t be understated that A.E.G.I.S. has been a pure passion project. A world with a distinct style all its own, but still be familiar enough to pull at the heartstrings of anyone who loves classic fighting super robots. From Power Rangers to GaoGaiGar to Gurren Lagann to Voltron to Medabots to Evangelion to G Gundam to Getter Robo (the list goes on!) – this is it. This is the definitive tabletop game about explosive combining robot combat.
