Stronghold Games is proud to declare 2015 as “The Year of Survive!” as it announces the new game Survive: Space Attack!, plus several new expansions in the Survive! line of light-strategy, family games.

Survive: Space Attack! is a reimagining of the best-selling game, Survive: Escape From Atlantis! The redesign of this classic game has been done by Brian, Sydney, and Geoff Engelstein, who have previously designed Space Cadets and Space Cadets: Dice Duel, plus expansions for each of these games, for Stronghold Games.

In Survive: Space Attack!, players are escaping from a space station as it comes under attack by aliens. While Survive: Space Attack! utilizes similar base mechanics to the original Survive! game designed by Julian Courtland-Smith, additional features of the new game include:

 

  • Double-sided Game Board: enables a variety of starting setups each with its own challenges.
  • New Fighter Ships: gives players the ability to capture and redeploy alien creatures.
  • Laser Turrets: a new weapon system to defend the space station against the aliens.
  • New Tile Abilities: new powers that are combinable, plus four different tile thicknesses for a 3-D look.
  • New Alien Creature Powers: alien creatures may evolve to become even more powerful.

Survive: Dolphins & Squids & 5-6 Players…Oh My! is an expansion for the original game Survive: Escape From Atlantis!. This expansion contains the components and gameplay modules that have been available previously in three separate mini-expansions. Each of these modules can be added separately into the play of the original Survive: Escape From Atlantis! or they can all be combined into one big game:

  • Dolphins & Dive Dice: adds the chaos of ‘Dive Dice’, but also the helpful Dolphins to ward off creatures.
  • The Giant Squid: adds the Giant Squid creature, which can attack the Explorers on land or in boats.
  • 5-6 Players: enables players to enjoy the original game with up to 6 players.

Survive: Dolphins & Squids & 5-6 Players…Oh My! will be available in English worldwide from Stronghold Games with a tentative Street Date of September. The MSRP is $19.95.

These 4 new titles will go on preorder on the Stronghold Games website approximately 2 months before their Street Date. Please watch the Stronghold Games website, Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Newsletter for updates on these games.

“In proclaiming 2015 ‘The Year of Survive!‘, Stronghold Games is sending a clear message to our fans”, said Stephen Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. “We will continue to support our major game lines like ‘Survive!‘, as well as ‘Space Cadets‘, ‘Core Worlds‘ and ‘Among The Stars‘, bringing out new games and expansions for these great, highly-regarded game lines. We are very excited to be working on these projects this year among others.”

“When we were approached by Stronghold Games to design a new game based on ‘Survive!‘, Brian, Sydney, and I were very excited”, said Geoff Engelstein. “The great game of ‘Survive!’ has truly stood the test of time, and has enriched the hobby for a generation. It is a game with a legacy, and one on which we are honored to be working.”
