Get ready, people of Earth, because the graphic novel Space Battle Lunchtime is being adapted in the form of a new card game!
Based on an Oni Press graphic novel of the same name by Natalie Riess, Space Battle Lunchtime follows a similar plot to the graphic novel. Players will compete in an intergalactic television show (the titular Space Battle Lunchtime) to create the best culinary dish to impress judges from all across the vastness of space.
Direct from the folks at Renegade Game Studios, in a press release, they said:
Announcing The Space Battle Lunchtime Card Game!
Battle In An Intergalactic Cooking Competition At Your Gaming Table
In partnership with Oni Games, Renegade Game Studios is excited to announce the upcoming release of Space Battle Lunchtime Card Game!
Space Battle Lunchtime Card Game is based on its namesake graphic novel by Natalie Riess, about Earth baker Peony who gets the deal of a lifetime when she agrees to be a contestant on the Universe's hottest reality TV cooking show, Space Battle Lunchtime!
In the game, players will face off as contestants in the intergalactic cooking competition show. They'll collect and combine flavor cards to create the perfect prize-winning dish, trying to impress the alien judges with their creativity!
Designed by Daniel Solis (Wonderland, Junk Orbit) and illustrated by Space Battle Lunchtime creator Natalie Riess, episodes of the game last about 30 minutes, starring 2-5 competitive cooks who have orbited the Earth's sun at least ten times. Chefs can begin cooking when the game releases in May!
Lucky gamers will be able to catch an early release and demo day of Space Battle Lunchtime at select friendly local game store on April 4th with Board Game Expo!
