“We’re thrilled to be back partnering with Chucklefish to bring the next iteration of the Wargroove series. It’s been a pleasure taking Wargroove to the next level, in a way which feels fresh and exciting for strategy fans, whilst still being true to a community who are passionate about this world and its characters.” Says Simon Bachmann, Art Director at Robotality. “All of us at Robotality have had a great time developing the next chapter in the Wargroove universe, and we hope fans will have as much fun playing, as we have creating”.
