A.E.G.I.S. – Combining Robot Strategy Game’ is a tactics game where players use teams of five combining robots to face off against each other in combat. Your squad of robots share energy and fight as one united front, and engage in simple dice-based combat. Combine your smaller robots into bigger more powerful ones to change the tide of battle! There are over 80 different robots in five different Classes (Assault, Evasive, Guard, Intel, Support), and finding the right strategy and combos are the keys to victory! It’s designed to be more accessible than your average tactics game, with the same huge depth of strategy. Quick to play, easy to learn and with infinite possibilities, newcomers to the strategy game scene and wargaming veterans alike love this game, and you will too! It’s Pokemon meets Power Rangers meets Advance Wars!
It can’t be understated that A.E.G.I.S. has been a pure passion project. We didn’t just set out to build a game, we set out to build an IP – a world with a distinct style all its own, but still be familiar enough to pull at the heartstrings of everyone everywhere who loves fighting Super Robots. From Power Rangers to GaoGaiGar to Gurren Lagann to Voltron to Medabots to Evangelion to G Gundam to Getter Robo – this is it. This is the definitive tabletop game about explosive combining robot combat – and we put everything we had into it.
The game is launching with two different boxes, the red Arc Buster box and the blue Sky Guard box. Each is a stand-alone game for 2-4 players which will retail for $40 MSRP.
A.E.G.I.S. was designed by a team of students at Becker College for a senior capstone project back in 2013. Proceeding to become two-time winners of the business competition Start-Up Worcester, the group evolved into Zephyr Workshop, an independent game company dedicated to creating easy to learn games with distinct IP. In the process of self-publishing A.E.G.I.S., the team met Jeff Gracia of Greenbrier Games, who fell in love with the game and Zephyr Workshop’s entrepreneurial spirit. After agreeing to co-develop and publish the game through Greenbrier Games, A.E.G.I.S. has appeared at dozens of game conventions, and been play tested by tons of fans nation wide. GBG and Zephyr Workshop are proud to present a tactics game that is quick to play and easy to learn, without sacrificing any of the depth of strategy that comes from the more expense and complex wargame counter parts.
