Well hot damn. I didn’t expect this. Plaid Hat Games, the guys that do Summoner Wars and the upcoming Mice & Mystics, announced today that they’re doing a Bioshock: Infinite board game. CRAZY. As if I weren’t already excited about the video game.
I’ve been a big supporter of Colby Dauch and Plaid Hat Games from day one, I’m very excited to see them snag a big license like this and I’m very interested to see how this turns out. Sounds like it’s going to be a conflict game, not a character-driven on. That’s likely a smart move, and it could stand to expand the world of the game in an interesting way. Here’s an edited version of what Colby had to say about it:
Plaid Hat Games is making a board game based on the upcoming video game Bioshock Infinite. The board game is going to be called Bioshock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia. The game is going to come packed with 52 miniatures, featuring 11 different unique sculpts. One such sculpt has already been previewed in an article from Irrational Games, as they will be packing one in every collector’s edition of the video game.
Speaking of cool, this board game is going to be totally rad. It was designed by Isaac Vega. We’ll tell you more about it in the upcoming months. We don’t have a release date yet but we are shooting for around the same time as the video game.
