Gremlins, Inc. approaches its first anniversary: the digital board game of strategy and malice developed by Charlie Oscar was released on March 11th one year ago! Since then, a lot of things have happened. Let’s check some figures: more than 70,000 games sold, 88 % Steam users approval, a Metascore of 75 %… Gremlins, Inc. has received five DLC (Automated Competitors, Uninvited Guests and Astral Gamblers, plus OST and Digital Artbook), 18 major free updates with big new features such as spectator mode, item drops and special character abilities, 15 official tournaments, Steam Workshop integration… As you can see, it’s been a wonderful and very exciting year in Clockwork Town!
But this is not over — not by half! To celebrate this anniversary, Charlie Oscar will release today a big update with one of the features most requested by Gremlins fans: Gremlins vs Automatons, an offline version of the game! This update adds the ability to play offline, with no connection to the game servers. It will be added as an additional product to the Steam library for all Gremlins, Inc. current players completely for free. Also, Gremlins vs Automatons won’t be sold as an independent product: all new players who buy Gremlins, Inc. from now on will get Gremlins vs Automatons for free alongside with the main game.
Wait, we’re not done with the celebrations! We want you to join us in Clockwork Town, and that’s why Gremlins, Inc. will start tomorrow the biggest sale the game had so far, with a 50 % discount for the base game and a 40 % discount when upgrading to The Governor Edition (the pack with all the DLC). This sale will last for 10 days (until March 20th); during that time, any owner of The Governor Edition who visits the game will get a special limited in-game item: an alternative version of the Dice-roller!
ABOUT GREMLINS INC
If you’ve been hearing a strange noise coming from your watch, or your smartphone seems about to explode, don’t worry… too much. It’s just the gremlins, those little bastards that live inside all these devices: they’ve been busy as hell dressing up, decorating their clockwork town for the visitors to come and taking advantage of the ensuing chaos to steal some gold, as well as rig a couple of elections. Gremlins, Inc. is an intense strategy board game in a steampunk world of corrupt capitalist gremlins who compete for money, political power and prestige. Steal resources, extort bribes, manipulate elections, arrest other players and send them telegrams of misfortune… Unleash your inner gremlin!
Gremlins, Inc. is the result of the creative cooperation between Alexey Bokulev (creator of the acclaimed strategy game Eador: Genesis) and Sergei Klimov (ex-director of business development in companies such as Snowball Studios, Larian Studios and Daedalic Entertainment). This two industry veterans set themselves back in 2013 to found Charlie Oscar and develop this completely original franchise, a multiplayer turn- based PC game that capitalise the rich heritage of board games.
