Ares Games, Gremlin Project develop Galaxy Defenders board game

Published: February 18, 2013
The games publisher Ares Games and the board game design studio Gremlin Project are joining forces to create Galaxy Defenders, a cooperative tactical game in which up to five players fight together against an incoming alien menace. 

Created by Nunzio Surace and Simone Romano and inspired to the Sci-Fi cult movies of the 80s and 90s, the game will feature 40-mm-scale miniatures and an artificial intelligence system to control the alien invaders.

“When Gremlin Project approached us with the sci-fi game they developed, we appreciated both their enthusiasm and their highly professional attitude. Their approach of game design and development is very close to ours, and we think that Galaxy Defenders will be a great addition to our product line,” said Christoph Cianci, CEO of Ares Games.

Said Romano, co-founder of Gremlin Project: “We are proud of this partnership, as we consider Ares Games a leading company in the international gaming market due to the uncontested quality of products like War of the Ring and Wings of Glory. We have in common the passion for games, and Ares products are created by gamers for gamers, just like we do. We aim to become a key partner of Ares Games in the future.”

Galaxy Defenders will be launched on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform on April 16. To learn more about the game, visit
