Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun!

UMBRAL LEADS READERS DOWN A DARK PATH

Fans of The Spiderwick Chronicles and Dark Crystal will love this new story arc

Bestselling writer Antony Johnston (THE FUSE, Wasteland) and artist Christopher Mitten cast their spell once more as they return with the eagerly anticipated new story arc of UMBRAL in Book Two: “The Dark Path,” which begins with issue #7.


“A must-read for fans of magic, thieves and all things scary.” —CBR

“If magic and toothy things that go 'boo' in the night trip your trigger, you shan't go wrong with Umbral.” —Crave Online

"The novel has nice pacing. It is fast and it needs to be as there is a great deal of action in it right from the start… Antony Johnston's writing skills and Christopher Mitten's pencilling talent have made this idea become an epic story of good versus evil."
—SF Site

Umbral #7 begins a new story arc that takes the tale’s unlikely heroes through the ‘Bulaswode’: a strange, misty forest full of dangers and weird creatures, including the deadly Silvali riders, called Wodelings. Rascal will have to face her past and battle against hopelessness. Dalone’s own past will return to literally haunt his nightmares. As for Shayim and Munty... well, they’ve got their own secrets to worry about. By the end of it, none of them—especially Rascal—will ever be the same again.

"By now, most books would have settled down into a cosy status quo, with good and bad guys clearly marked,” said Johnston. “But in Umbral, there is no status quo. Just a quick-witted, potty-mouthed thief on the run from nightmare shadow creatures, wizards, assassins... and magic itself. We recommend Umbral for discerning fans of high adventure and low morals."

UMBRAL #7 arrives in stores this 7/16 and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code MAY140740. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is 6/23.
