So it’s a farewell to 2016. It’s been a tough year all round politically.
For us a Auroch Digital it has been a positive one in our work…
In February our GameTheNews title ‘Endgame:Syria’ was in ‘50 App Reinventing Modern Gaming‘ (sadly as the news from Syria has continued to be bleak. You can donate to help people there here. We have.)
In June Last Days of Old Earth exited from Early Access – and we’ve been getting happy player comments since.
In July we announced a joint project with Steve Jackson Games an adaptation of the classic Ogre!
Over the course of the year we’ve been drip-feeding more about Dark Future: Blood Red States. We’re super excited about this title and you can catch up here. (We got a great reception from fans at Warhammer World too… Thanks all!)
In newsgames over at GameTheNews we also crowdfunded and launched our first ever physical card game with Wonkette – Elections of US America Elections. You can also check out these reviews of Elections… from God is a Geek and Gameosity. You can buy a copy here too!
See you in 2017!

OK, then you might ask – is it popular. Errr. yes. YES.
So we now know what it, how it works and that it’s done well. What about it’s impact? It’s seems it is getting people out and about in positive ways!
Finally, the combination of a cultural icon with new technology has created moments of zeitgeist:
Which is why all the media is covering it…
