PRESS RELEASE: North Star Games Breaches the Board Gaming Surface with Oceans
|The Latest Offering in the Evolution Games Series Gets Kickstarted TodayKENSINGTON, MD. – March. 26, 2019 – North Star Games is positively effervescent to announce the release of Oceans – a stand-alone strategy game in the acclaimed Evolution game series. Oceans represents the deepest dive into gaming that North Star Games has ever attempted. It literally takes the Evolution Game Series into uncharted waters. For those who dare, the Kickstarter page is officially launched here.|
|Oceans is a grand cumulation of effort by North Star Games to design the ultimate gamer’s game. All Evolution games are known for their vivid themes, easy rules, and hidden depth. With many thousands of play-tests, years of non-stop design, reimagined mechanics, and more content than we’ve ever put into a game before, we’ve topped ourselves in every way with Oceans. In Oceans, players create a vibrant web of marine life through millions of years of evolution.|
Whereas the previous games in the Evolution series were bound exclusively by the science (and the core of this game is as well), Oceans expands upon it with a new set of cards called “The Deep”. This fantastical set of new cards stretch the boundaries of the game from science, to science fiction by including creatures like the Leviathan and the Hydra.
|“We’ve designed Oceans (our most strategic game ever) to work using rules that are simpler, more intuitive, and easier to teach even than Evolution, which was already known for being easy to teach,” states Dominic Crapuchettes, Founder, and Co-President of North Star Games. “Nonetheless players will be delighted to find tons of hidden tactics and strategies…under the surface.”|
LATEST UPDATE: Oceans‘ first day on Kickstarter (March 26) received over 300% funding in the first 10 hours! It will be shipping, and available in wide-release, in September 2019.
