Lynnvander Meets Catalyst

We’re expanding all the time, designing more and more original and licensed games for major publishers in the industry. Now, we are proud to announce that one such publisher is Catalyst Game Labs.

CatalystCatalyst Game Labs, best known as the company behind Shadowrun, and Battletech has released great game after great game and we’re excited to be designing and developing what will hopefully be the first of many Lynnvander Studios games published by Catalyst Game Labs.

Our first collaboration with Catalyst Game Labs will be Galaxy Quest: The Board Game!

A fully cooperative, comedic, worker-placement board game all about the hazards and hijinks that occur when a team of actors is forced to take on the task of running a real alien space-ship. Based on the Galaxy Quest movie, this game will stay true to the humor of the film and will be a very approachable, fast-paced experience.

More on this in the coming weeks!

Off to NEVERLAND!

We’ve launched!

Please take a moment to review the KICKSTARTER and spread the word on Neverland’s Legacy, the third Legacy game!

All three

Having a legacy doesn’t mean having to grow up! Travel to Neverland with Peter Pan and his allies in the third epic installment in the Legacy series! Neverland’s Legacy is set in the same universe as Albion’s Legacy and Sherwood’s Legacy but is a totally stand-alone game that doesn’t require the other Legacy games to play.

In this strategic, dice-rolling skirmish game, you help either Peter Pan and his allies or Captain Hook and his crew to assault their rivals on Hook’s pirate ship or in the lost boys’ camp respectively. At the start of the game, you’ll choose which faction to play as and then set up the appropriate location to attack. Whether you’re playing as Peter and his allies or Hook and his crew, you’ll then assault your foes’ base of operations, drawing cards to search every nook and cranny for lost boys, fairies, and pirate treasure, while positioning yourselves around the board to bypass or fight off your enemies. As your foes cause you to fall into despair, you are forced to roll Stones of Chance instead of choosing your actions, making it more difficult to take optimal turns.

As Peter and his allies, the game is won when you rescue all of the lost boys aboard Hook’s ship. As Captain Hook and his crew, the game is won when you capture all of the lost boys hiding in their camp. In either case, the game is lost when your foes defeat enough of your characters!

You can collect metal miniatures, metal dice, tokens and more! Check out our KICKSTARTER page for more details and BACK US TODAY!

Legacy Campaign

 What is the Legacy Series?

When Albion’s Legacy was first created we wanted to do more than just one epic legend, so we decided to commit to a series of epic legends throughout time and culture that could culminate together to bring you the ultimate fantasy experience.

games

Neverland’s Legacy is the 3rd Legacy game of 9. Below are a few titles you can expect to see in the coming 2016 and 2017 Lynnvander/Jasco release year. We’ll take you from Feudal Japan all the way to the depths of Atlantis, whether riding a Chandelier as a Musketeer or sizing a French Castle as Joan of Arc, there will be something for everyone.

Adventure Awaits!

With Origins Game Fair, coming up fast, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be upholding tradition and Kickstarting the 3rd game in the Legacy series while we’re at the convention!

In the first Legacy Game, you helped King Arthur and his allies prevent the land from falling into despair. In the second, you helped Robin Hood to defend Sherwood Forrest from the Sheriff and his forces. Now, we’re making a stand and saying that having a legacy doesn’t mean having to grow up!

Neverlands
Our next Legacy game will take you to Neverland where you’ll help Peter Pan and his allies raid Captain Hook’s ship, or in a new turn for the series, you’ll be able to play an alternate game mode in which you help Captain Hook and his crew to raid the lost boys’ camp.

In addition, Peter Pan will even have support from his allies in Sherwood forest and Castle Camelot in Albion! This campaign will be chalk full of exciting exclusive content such as Albion’s Legacy 2nd edition metal miniature alternate sculpts, original sculpts for the last Albion’s Legacy expansion characters and all of our exclusive Legacy kickstarter expansions.

Travel to Neverland with Peter Pan and his allies when we launch the Neverland’s Legacy Kickstarter on June 15th!

This project is in partnership with Jasco Games.

Natural 20

Intro BannerIn 2013 Lynnvander Productions released The Gamers: Natural 1, a Cyberpunk action-comedy that bridged a fantastic dystopian future to our mundane – albeit charming – reality. The film followed Monica and Ryan as they tried to balance their lives, gaming, and a pact with Monica’s brother that threatened to divide them.  The Gamers: Natural 20 picks up a year or so after the dramatic ending of N1. The second of our Cyberrun series, N20 promises to be bigger, darker, and like nothing you’ve seen before. The Cyberrunners are back, leveled up and ready to kick butt!

Created by Thomas Gofton and written by Andy Dopieralski, with development by Don Early and Matt Vancil from The Dead Gentlemen Productions, this project brings old and new cast together for a production that will commence principal photography in January of 2016.

The Gamers: Natural 20 will make you laugh, maybe cry and quite possibly wince as we take you for a ride on the electric tornado that will dumpshock the drek out of you!

Stay tuned for our Kickstarter dates coming soon!

Samples

If you haven’t seen The Gamers: Natural 1, take a watch here!

Here is a sample of Natrual 1’s poster.  A Poster for N20 will be coming shortly after we fully cast!
