Games Workshop’s 1988 ‘Dark Future’ boardgame returning as a video game


Very few people reading this site today will know of Dark Future, a board game released by Games Workshop back in 1988 that has absolutely nothing to do with Space Marines, Orks, or psychic monsters — although it is pretty grim, and dark.

Rebooted today as Dark Future: Blood Red States, this new video game in development at Auroch Digital will be a turn-based strategy game, where players put in their moves and watch them play out in real-time simultaneous action together.

They’ve released a teaser trailer, which doesn’t unfortunately contain any gameplay but is nice nonetheless:

Look for Dark Future towards the end of the year.
