Steve Jackson Games and Cryptozoic are uniting to bring Batman to their successful dice game series.
Steve Jackson Games is known for their fan favorite card game Munchkin, as well as games like their successful Zombie Dice series (via ICv2). A partnership with Cryptozoic makes sense, as the company has experience with the Batman license in their previous Batman Arkham City and DC Deck Building games. The match couldn't be a better fit.
The two companies have announced a new player in the genre, and it features one of the most loved iterations of the character, the classic Warner Bros. Batman Animated Series. In the game, you'll play as one of four villains, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, The Riddler, or The Joker. You'll then set about completing a bank heist, using your character's unique ability to throw Batman off the scent and complete the game with the most loot. The game will center around the press your luck mechanics that have been a mainstay in their previous dice games.
No word yet on how much the game will cost, but the Sam Mitschke and Randy Scheunemann designed game is set to release in November of this year, and you can see some art from the game in the gallery.0comments
