Days of Wonder (and parent company Asmodee) has just announced that (in partnership with Space Cowboys) it will be continuing is string of spectacular digital releases with iOS, Android and Steam versions of the popular multiplayer strategy turned-based card game, SPLENDOR.
In SPLENDOR, “players assume the role of wealthy Renaissance merchants, exploiting mines and caravans, hiring craftsmen and leveraging their influence with the nobility. The goal is to get the biggest booty to become the most popular merchant. The player with the most prestige points wins the game!”
Released in physical form in 2014 by Space Cowboys, SPLENDOR was designed by Marc André and illustrated by Pascal Quidalt. It has been hugely successful, with global sales of over 200,000 copies and has won numerous industry awards and was nominated for the prestigious German Spiel des Jahres.
Known for their stellar and faithful digital versions of both Ticket to Ride, Ticket to Ride Pocket, Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket and Small World, I have no doubt that Days of Wonder will do a spectacular job at bringing SPLENDOR to the digital realm. While details are limited, I suspect that the digital release will feature all of the great cross-platform, online play that we’ve come to expect from a Days of Wonder title.
We are delighted that Space Cowboys confides editing the digital version of Splendor. This is a real opportunity for us to help a huge audience discover or rediscover the game!” says Yann Corno, CTO of Days of Wonder. He added: “Splendor really deserves a digital adaptation! It is a fascinating and rich game, and players can now play anywhere, anytime, regardless of their mobile platform.
Unfortunately we do not have any actual gameplay screenshots , but the folks at Days of Wonder have provided some nice artwork that we’ve linked below.
The digital adaptation of SPLENDOR will be available this summer on iOS, Android and Steam.
