Rodeo Games and Games Workshop have announced a computer game version of Warhammer Quest. Due for release Spring 2013, at the moment, much like their e-book offerings, it looks like this will be exclusively sold through the Apple App Store for their popular iPad and iPhone devises, rather than as a console or PC game, and there is no mention of expanding this for Android devices at a later date.
Rodeo are due to attend Games Day 2012 in the UK so hopefully more information about this game will be forthcoming then.
Hopefully this means we can look forward to some lovely new artwork and ideas for the venerable tabletop version of the game, and hopefully a legion of people interested in picking up the game. Who knows, if the game is massively popular, perhaps Games Workshop will even consider reviving or freeing Warhammer Quest for the fans!
The screenshots of the game from the announcement on the Games Workshop “What’s New Today” blog look amazing, and make sure you check out the official trailer from Rodeo on YouTube. This is particularly exciting off the back of the ‘Free Warhammer Quest‘ campaign and impassioned letters and emails penned over the years by this author and many others.
