For those that have been following this site for some time, know that I am a big board game fan. Games like Twilight Imperium get played monthly at this house, alongside other games like Settlers of Catan, 7 wonders, and more. One game that I have seen and not played though, is Warhammer Quest, and now it is being turned into an app for Iphones and Ipads.




via Games Workshop
Warhammer Quest will be a universal app sold exclusively via the Apple App Store. The team at Rodeo Games is working towards a Spring 2013 launch, but will be presenting an early version of the game at UK Games Day at the Birmingham NEC on Sunday 23rd September. I can honestly say that while I'm at Games Day, I will definitely be paying the guys from Rodeo a visit to find out more about this upcoming game.

Here is a link to the website for the game

    2. Do you want to know why many developers favour iOS over Android? Read this.

    3. Universal app is a specific term within the app store meaning it runs on the iPad and iPhone/touch natively, without scaling. If you want an android version, email the developer.

  5. Many an hour was spent playing variations on this at university. I miss my Trollslayer with a golf bag full of weapons who could self heal, teleport and throw a bag of dice at enemies.

  7. Of all the things to see at Games Day, I don't think I'll be visiting the Rodeo people.

    Board games are more fun.

  8. Never played the board game, but know I would have liked it!

    Definitely going to buy the app on my ipad (Which I gave in and bought since GW seem to be only putting their eggs (or should that be apples!? ;-)) in that basket) though and is another GW product I will be very much looking forward to!

  9. I wonder how much it will cost... I really hope they don't charge as much for it as for a vintage copy of the original game ;-)

  10. Rodeo Games have made a series of games on the Ipad/Iphone called Hunters/Hunter 2 which is a top down action point based strategy game and they are really good. If they are making Warhammer Quest they'll probably do a decent job of it. I'm looking forward to this.

    1. Honestly Hunters 1/2 is the closest thing to warhammer 40k on the app store. You control a unit of soldiers in powered armour, ranging from a light kit suitable for scouting troops, a medium armor that serves as the backbone of your force, and then a set of heavy armor that makes you slow and nearly unkillable. You have move points per turn, attack points, overwatch, its quite excellent. I always imagine I'm playing a squad of SM when I play. If only the games had more of a story.

  11. Refusing to even entertain the idea. Not going to be coerced in to buying a product (in this case apple products) because there getting jealous about product rights. Was thinking about getting an I-pad until they got all guarded about their apps / product synchronization. Now I won't give it a look in. It's like the jealous kid in school throwing their weight around to get their own way. Shame really. Sounded like a good app.

    1. What do you mean by guarded about their apps/product synchronization? Not sure what you are referring to with that.

  12. Yeah its very upsetting that u have to buy apple if u want any of their digital products i don't have apple and so i feel left out :’( i understand apple has a huge market share and what not but still it shouldn't be that hard to make it available on both platforms or for example make the codecies available on all tablet/e-reader platforms

    1. Its not a question of being able to do something, its about return on investment. In this case, GW had to find a developer to make the game (or the developer sought GW out, who knows honestly) and they signed a licensing agreement. The developer makes financial decisions about how and what to develop, and GW has oversight based on the terms of their license, most likely dealing with story, background, aesthetics, etc. They almost certainly have the right to distribute across multiple markets, but the question is whether the developer has the resources to make an android (or other) version. Since they are a small company that only has 2 previous titles, my assumption is that they dont currently have the staff to do multi platform development. That may change when they put out a major IP's title.

  13. I am NOT HAPPY about this. First the Codices and Army Books, and now Games. F(*&^ GW. Too bad I am addicted to 40k.
