Gloomhaven Is Coming To Video Games

Gloomhaven, a very very long and popular board game, is getting a digital adaptation sometime next year.

Asmodee Digital say the game—being developed by Flaming Fowl—will be available via Early Access on Steam in Q1 2019. It’ll feature “an infinitely replayable roguelike mode”.

It’s weird seeing a board game so clearly inspired by video games get...a video game, but the board game made over $4 million on Kickstarter, so it’s not like there isn’t a market for more Gloomhaven stuff.

so.. Gloomhaven has very few minis in comparison to many other board games in the genre. Compare that to Descent or other games, and it’s really not just about buying the minis.

But yeah, it is a huge board game. I’m still wondering when I’ll con some poor shmucks into playing it with me...
