May 27, 2022: Ogre Video Game Now Available On Switch


The Ogre never dies . . .

Ogre has taken many different forms since its creation in 1977: board games, minis, books, pocket boxes, and video games, to name a few. The first Ogre video game, released in 1986, was made for the Apple II, Amiga, Atari 8-bit family, Atari ST, Commodore 64, MS-DOS, and Macintosh. There was a long video game hiatus after that offering became obsolete, but recently, we partnered with Auroch Digital to introduce the Ogre battlefield to online gamers. Auroch released Ogre for Steam in 2017, and because you can't have too much of a good thing, Ogre is now available on your gaming console! Auroch released the PlayStation and Xbox versions last week, and as of May 25, everyone's favorite evil AI supertank is also available on Switch!

The Ogre video game for console includes the Ogre and G.E.V. rules, plus some improvements and upgrades from the Steam game. Never fear, Auroch back-ported all of the goodies to Steam, so no matter which platform you prefer, you can play the latest version. 

Ogre fans, this is your chance to convert folks who would rather play video games than board games. Then, who knows, you might be able to draw them back to the table once they're hooked!
