CMON Limited and SMV are excited to announce they’ve forged an alliance to unveil Degenesis - Clan Wars, the first board game based on SMV’s popular, long-running role-playing game, Degenesis. CMON will publish the studio’s debut board game, with the joint venture set to launch a crowdfunding campaign in 2024.
Set in desperate future where humanity has fractured itself into many Cultures and Cults, Degenesis - Clan Wars is a story-driven, asymmetrical, semi-cooperative game, featuring tactical combat that takes players to the front lines of a war for humanity’s survival. With creative direction by Marko Djurdjević, game design by Renart De Maupertuis and Liam Foley, and art by acclaimed illustrator Ricardo Padierne Silvera, Degenesis - Clan Wars lets players explore and conquer the world of Degenesis like never before.
Prior to the campaign, players will have a chance to experience Degenesis - Clan Wars at the upcoming Lucca Comics & Games event (Wed, Nov 1 – Sun, Nov 5) held in Lucca, Italy, where the designers and artists behind the game will be on-hand to demo the title.
CMON COO David Preti commented, “The team at SMV have done a tremendous job creating and cultivating the world of Degenesis, and we’re very excited to help launch this game to a worldwide audience. Degenesis - Clan Wars features iconic characters and villains, surprising and twisted storytelling, genre-defining art, and incredible miniatures, all adding up to an amazing gameplay experience.”
SMV’s Creative Director Marko Djurdjević added, “We couldn’t have wished for a better partner. CMON fundamentally understands our creator-owned vision and supports SMV’s independent spirit. It’s a relationship based on equal values and a collective commitment to quality, allowing the Degenesis IP and its vast gaming universe to thrive for many years to come.”
