Renegade Game Studios is known for hit games like Power Rangers Heroes of the Grid, Lanterns, and more, and now they're taking on the delightful series Space Battle Lunchtime from Natalie Riess and Oni Press. The series revolves around a baker named Peony who finds herself in a universe-spanning baking competition, one that takes her far beyond the skies of Earth. Now Renegade is adapting the series for a brand new card game that will have players competing for the title of Space Battle Lunchtime champion, and you'll have to pull out all the stops to deliver the winning dish.
Players will collect and combine flavor cards to assemble a dish that will win over the judges, a panel that is made up of aliens from all over the galaxy. 2 to 5 players will do battle int he game, which takes around 30 minutes to play, and utilizes the same delightful art style from the series. Fans will have the chance to play the game early courtesy of the Board Game Expo, which will take place on April 4th, and you can check out the game in the images below.
You can find the official description of the game below as well, and it can be pre-ordered right here.
