Game Jam, New Release, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got just a quick update, with the OPR Game Jam coming in 2 weeks, a new chapter for Jakob’s Path, as well as Release Previews for everything you’re going to get in November, plus new Battle Reports of course!

Let’s get to it!

OPR Game Jam #2November 13th

First up, we’re very happy to announce that the 2nd OPR Game Jam is going to happen on the 13th of November!

What is the OPR Game Jam?

This is a 48hr game making marathon, focused on creating one-page miniatures games based on a common team. Anyone can participate, and you can make games solo or with a team, and we’ll have a dedicated Discord channel so that creators can chat together.

At the end of the 48hrs the games everyone gets to vote on what games they enjoyed the most, and then we will highlight a couple of our favourites on the OPR website. There is no winner or prize, it’s all just for fun!

Sign up now, it’s FREE:

The last time we did this it was super fun, and we’re hoping that we can get even more players to join in on the fun and share their crazy game ideas, so make sure to tell your friends about it.

Check out the games from the last jam here:

Jakob’s Path Chapter 4

This week we released Chapter 4 of Jakob’s Path!

Jakob’s Path is a narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which is being released in 5 chapters. Each chapter continues the story and features 2 new missions for you to play.

Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orc Marauders in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have available.

Chapter 4 – A bit shaken but still hopeful after the loss of many men, the Battle Brothers push on following the tracker’s signal. Little did they know that that simple signal was going to lead to a clash for the ages…

Game Related Updates

These past few weeks have been kind of crazy as we’ve had to deal with a lot of background stuff, but fret not, we’ve also been scribbling down lots of game related updates that we’re going to implement!

The Custodian Brothers are going to get an update that adds a lot of missing units, and we’re also going to be updating the Halflings adding more stuff to them as well. Then we’re also going to be heavily re-working the Gangs of Hive City list in preparation for… something cool. ;)

For the other games, we’re currently working on a large FTL update that’s going to fix some of the balancing issues we’ve found through more playtesting, and for the Arena Games we’re halfway through development of a custom warband creator so that you can use any models you have for them!

Battle Reports

Starting off with a bang, we’ve got a 3750pts solo match of Orc Marauders vs Plague Brothers by Sad and Lonely Gamer, which features two absolutely massive armies.

Then we’ve got a new batrep by Battle Knights, featuring 1000pts of Halflings vs Humans, in which two badass Cockatrices go berserk!

Finally Stonehorse Gaming has published another AoF: Regiments tactics video, this time discussing the deployment phase and various strategies for how to best deploy your army.

That’s it for today, hope you enjoyed this quick update, and we’re looking forward to the Game Jam in November to see all of your crazy and awesome game ideas!

Happy Wargaming!

– Gaetano
