2021-11-19Lost Ruins of Arnak: Expedition Leaders Availability

Essen Spiel'21: When Less is More

Dear friends and fans of Lost Ruins of Arnak,

We have some updates about the availability of the game’s expansion, Expedition Leaders.

You might have seen that the expansion was first available at SPIEL’21 in both English and German languages. Expedition Leaders quickly became a bestseller of the show, alongside the new edition of Galaxy Trucker—for which we are grateful. It was incredible to be able to showcase both the expansion and the base game after almost two years of no conventions. If you weren’t at the show, you can check out our video report.

Essen Spiel'21: When Less is More

It's no surprise that Essen Spiel'21 was a smaller show this year. The good news is that while there may have been fewer exhibitors and fewer attendees than in years past, the energy and enthusiasm we saw was anything but small. Throughout the convention, demo tables were bustling non-stop, and our hearts were full of happiness from seeing you all again!

This year attendees had a chance to try out a giant version of the newly re-launched Galaxy Trucker in the gallery between halls 2 and 4. It was hilarious watching everyone running around and scrambling to build their ships with large tiles, and people seemed to have a blast with it...

2021-06-03Play the Free Solo Campaign for the Lost Ruins of Arnak

The third chapter of the Lost Ruins of Arnak solo campaign is out

Dear friends,
After months of development, testing, and iterating, we have released our free four-chapters-long solo campaign The Search for Professor Kutil.

The famous scholar’s expedition vanished somewhere in the uncharted waters of the Pacific Ocean—while searching for a mysterious island nobody believed existed. It seems the professor may have found what he was looking for, but what happened to his expedition? Only scarce traces of the team’s presence remain, but nothing truly explains where they are or what happened to them.

Will you succeed and find Professor Kutil and his team? The Search for Professor Kutil is on!
