Renegade Games Studio had a great hit with FUSE last year. The real-time dice game turned into a hit with friends and family. While the time limit could be tracked using any regular timer, the Renegade Companion App had a timer with personality. While you could have the app remind you of the time remaining at regular intervals, you could let it give a few statements to express its displeasure at your progress. Now Renegade has updated their app with a new enhancement for Clank!
Renegade Game Studios™ and Dire Wolf Digital are excited to announce that an update to the freely available Renegade Game Studios Companion App has added bonus game content for the hit game Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure.
Clank! fans who download the free Renegade Game Studios Companion App will enjoy “Mini-Quests” that add even more excitement and replayability to the game. An official solo play mode also allows individual players to enjoy the game on their own.
The app debuted in 2016 with flavorful companion support for the game FUSE, by adding a thematic 10-minute timer with a taunting voice-over to enhance the player’s experience. While it is not required to enjoy the game, it does offer players a free upgrade to FUSE. The Clank! portion of the app is also a free, optional add-on.
“While the FUSE portion of the app creates a thematic atmosphere, the Clank! content is entirely new and can change the outcome of games” says Renegade President Scott Gaeta. “Clank!‘s incredible popularity and expandable nature made it a natural choice for extra digital content within the Renegade Companion App. ”
“Game night around the table with family and friends is a special experience,” says Dire Wolf Digital President Scott Martins. “One of the things we look for when we sit down to play is ‘How can we make it even better?’ Blending table top and digital gaming opens up amazing possibilities for game design and replayability, and we’re pretty excited to be exploring them with Clank!”
I’m glad to see that the app will enhance the experience without requiring it. I’m looking forward to seeing how Renegade enhances other games in their lineup.
