[Toronto, May 25, 2021] – Following on the Kickstarter releases of “King of Indecision”, “Latte Throwdown” and “Duels of Cartisora” during 2020, Analog Game Studios is pleased to announce that its first Kickstarter for 2021 will see the launch of “Torus”, the game of abstract logic, played across a grid representing the surface of a donut-shape known as a Torus. Originally published as “CTOR” in Europe, where it sold over 100,000 copies, this lavish new production reboot, for North American release, is a critically acclaimed strategy masterpiece designed by Dr. Bronn who needed to teach his students mathematical applications in cellular biology that overcome “boundary conditions”.

“We’re very excited to be publishing Dr. Bronn’s extremely successful board game and look forward to supporting the international Championships associated with the games’s success, as soon as social distancing restrictions allow competitive events to resume”, said Richard MacRae, Publisher at Analog Game Studios. “For now, our sole focus is to launch and manage a successful Kickstarter for the game’s North American reboot launch, which goes live on June 1st at 8:00 EDT.” 

The Kickstarter for “Torus” will be seeking crowd funding for the production and distribution of the game throughout Canada and the United States and there will be some special benefits exclusively available to Kickstarter backers for this campaign including a retail backer opportunity.

One of the unique aspects of this otherwise 2-player strategy game is the solo variant that allows players to challenge their right intuitive brain against their left analytical brain. This is a key feature that gives Torus its moniker as a ‘brain-game’. Players that play in Solo Mode will find out which side of their brain is predominant and can, in effect, exercise and strengthen their ‘weaker’ side.

Watch for “Torus” coming to Kickstarter – the game in which Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, observed: “The circle of your game’s fans has already formed and will continue to grow.” and Ernõ Rubik, inventor of Rubik’s Cube, said: “Your game is wonderful!”

[Toronto, October 2, 2020] – Analog Game Studios is participating in SPIEL.digital, the online trade fair where publishers showcase their new products to a broad audience of analog gamers. The online convention replaces SPIEL, which normally takes place in Essen, Germany and is the largest board game convention of its kind in the world.

“We’re honoured and pleased to be participating in SPIEL.digital”, said Richard MacRae, President and Publisher at Analog Game Studios. “While we wish that our first time at SPIEL could have been in Germany, we applaud the organizers for putting together this online game trade fair and we look forward to meeting many board gamers, and industry professionals.”

Analog Games Studios will be featuring its four new releases: “Centrix”, which is now for the first time available in English, German, French, and Spanish; “On Pointe; The Ballet board Game”, which launched in North America earlier this year in February; “King of Indecision”, which is launching now as well as the Barista Battle dice game “Latte Throwdown” which is launching this Fall.

“Renting board games is a great way to try out new games before deciding to buy”, said Richard MacRae, President and Publisher at Analog Game Studios. “We believe this new business idea is timed just right, as the popularity of board games is expanding from ‘Indie Hobbyists’ to mainstream family game fare.”
