Hey (and welcome back!) We're Zephyr Workshop, and we created this awesome robot smashing game. A.E.G.I.S. It's been years of hard work from very many talented people.
We love strategy games, and noticed there was a severe lack of combining robots and simple strategy games. We decided to change that, and create the experience we wanted to play - to great praise! When we started creating this game, we set out with these clear goals:
We believe (and so do the fans!) that we have succeeded!
A.E.G.I.S. has been in development since 2013 -- Initially as a senior capstone project at Becker College and then as a self-published title which was in print through 2014 and early 2015, and then toured the country with Greenbrier Games through 2016! It's been a saga. The game has been played with hundreds and hundreds of people at events across the country, and it has evolved over time to be more streamlined, accessible, and content-robust.
Fans have seen the game at PAX East, Gen Con, BoardGameGeek.CON, Templecon, Game Developer's Conference, the Boston Festival of Indie Games, and North East Comic Con, among many others. Over the last couple of years they have watched A.E.G.I.S. evolve into what it is today.
It can't be understated that A.E.G.I.S. has been a pure passion project. We didn't set out to build a game, we set out to build an IP. We wanted a world with a distinct style all its own, that still would be familiar enough to pull at the heartstrings of everyone everywhere who loves fighting Super Robots. From Power Rangers to GaoGaiGar, Gurren Lagann to Voltron, Medabots to Evangelion, to G Gundam to Getter Robo, and everything in between - this is it. This is the definitive tabletop game about explosive combining robot combat... and we put everything we had into it.
Zephyr Workshop, an independent game company based out of Worcester, MA, is comprised of alumni from the Becker College and MassDiGI Interactive Media Design program. It is the only two-year winner of Start-Up Worcester, and strives to build distinct IPs with unique worlds and characters across several mediums, along with contracting design and art services to clients.
While not directly involved with this campaign, Greenbrier has helped us a ton and this game wouldn't be anything it looks like to today without their support. The effort of Jeff, Zach, Walter and the gang laid a lot of foundations for us to succeed here. Stephen Gibson (Grimslingers) did some great art for us, seen in the top image of this campaign! They are great people it's a shame we had to make a logisitcal split.
We have worked with numerous freelance artists to bring this game's world to life. From Maung Thuta, who did the art for several robots and the board and splash illustrations, to Daniel Olsen who did amazing work illustrating and designing our Commanders, and Andrew Kim who drew some beautiful backgrounds and brought the world of AEGIS to life. Kenny Howell and Dan Greene came in with some heavy graphic design assists, and many of the assets and web images you see are contributed to by them. And then Emily Hancock comes in with touch ups, color adjustments and motion graphics.
