    Rodeo Games announces Warhammer Quest Video Game for Spring 2013

    From their announcement:
    This is very exciting news for us here in the office, as not only do we get to tell you all about a new computer game, but we also get the exclusive on it. That's right, you heard it from us first! Today, Rodeo Games announced that they are working on bringing a Games Workshop classic - Warhammer Quest - to the iPhone and iPad in 2013. As the first Warhammer title to come to a mobile games platform, we were thrilled to find out more about it.


    Many of our longest-serving hobbyists will remember Warhammer Quest from ye olden days, but for those of you that have never played it, the premise is fairly simple. You take control of a party of four questing warriors in search of immeasurable power and riches in the Warhammer world. As always, power and riches are rarely found underneath someone's mattress or in the local library, and so your quests inevitably take you into the dungeons and under-empires of the Old World, fighting foul creatures as you explore hidden tunnels in the hope of finding lost treasure, hoards of gold and lasting fame (or an ignominious death - that is always a possibility too).


    The classic Warhammer Quest cover from 1995.

    "By using one of our tried and tested game engines we can really focus on developing the parts of Warhammer Quest that made it such a great table-top game; truly unique hero characters and brutal enemies from across all the Warhammer races," explained Rodeo Games co-founder Laurent Maguire. "The opportunity to work with Games Workshop was such an exciting prospect, we are thrilled to have been entrusted with this facet of the Warhammer licence."


    "All our passion is being channelled into this game, which I'm sure fans will recognise and respond to." said Rodeo Games Creative Director, Ben Murch. That much is certainly clear from looking at the screenshots and the video at the top of the page. Every flagstone is textured and worn, tiny withered plants grow in the sparse patches of light, bones and discarded weapons litter the floor. You can certainly see where inspiration has been taken from the floor tiles in the original boxed game and the Chaos Marauder is stunningly rendered - you certainly wouldn't want to run into him in a dark dungeon (or any dungeon, for that matter, regardless of lighting conditions).

    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.

    We will be featuring more pictures and information about Warhammer Quest on the blog and in White Dwarf, so keep your eyes peeled for more great stuff. Until then, you can check out the Warhammer Quest page at Rodeo Games for more information. Let the quest begin!

    Loved to play this game (yes I'm older than some). This can be really nice if the make it tactical and some action hack and slash like so many empty games.

    Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy."

    Warhammer Quest was one of my faves but I'm certainly not buying an iPoop to play it. Platform fail!

    Yup. The narrator sounded like a bored C of E vicar.

    Well it has been bandied about that GW will be doing it as one of their summer stand alone games so we can all live in hope. After the let down of Man o' War/Dreadfleet though I'm not sure whether it's best to leave well enough alone. The best thing they could do would be to leave the rules as they were and just re-vamp the minis like they did with Spacehulk.
