The New Year of the Apes

The New Year of the Apes

Hello fellow Apes!

2017 has been a wild year for us at WYSIWYGames; we attended half a dozen gaming conventions around the world, met thousands of amazing gamers, and watched a whole lot of Planet of the Apes movies.

Development and playtesting is progressing well and we're currently speaking with various manufacturers to make sure the final product is as great as it can be! Thanks to all of you who have joined our growing army and supported us on the beginning of this amazing ride!

With 2018 just around the corner, we’re excited to launch our new website where you'll be able to get the latest information on each of our games. Its first focus will be for the upcoming Planet of the Apes Miniatures Boardgame, with galleries of miniatures, concept art, sneak peeks of prototypes, and of course a link to the Kickstarter campaign when it launches during spring 2018. The next update to the site will be a section for Z First Impact, the first game from 'Apes designer, Hervé Sagnier, which we are excited to announce will be coming to the English-speaking world in 2018.

More on that soon!

That's it for housekeeping, so how about some sneak peeks to kickoff your holidays?

We've got a preview for you - a first look at a prototype tree! If you’ve had the chance to play our demo at a convention this year, you’re aware that the trees of Muir Woods are an integral part of the game experience, since they can be used by your apes to swing around as they fight for the future of the world. Each tree will be comprised of a few snap-together pieces allowing easy storage and quick assembly.

We're looking forward to sharing more in-progress components, renders, and miniatures with you in the coming months as we ramp up for our spring Kickstarter launch, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

From everyone here at WYSIWYGames, thanks again for all your interest, excitement and support this past year and we can't wait to see you all again in 2018!
