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!

Galaxy Trucker Relaunch

We are thrilled to announce the relaunch of Galaxy Trucker, the award-winning family game by Vlaada Chvátil!

In Galaxy Trucker, 2 to 4 truckers begin by simultaneously rummaging through the common warehouse, frantically trying to grab the most useful component tiles for building their space ship — all in real-time.

Once the ships are launched, players will encounter dangerous situations while vying for financial opportunities—each hoping to gain the most valuable cargo and finish with as much of their ship still intact as possible.

Of course, that's easier said than done since many hazards will send pieces of your ship, your cargo, and your crew hurling into the depths of space...
