Ares to relaunch Wotan Games

Published: February 28, 2013
Ares Games announced Feb. 28 that it has entered into a publishing contract with Wotan Games to produce Wotan Games’ Camelot the Build, the first product from Wotan Games in more than twenty years, according to a press release from Ares.

Camelot the Build
is from game designer Julian Musgrave and continues Wotan Games’ theme of the Arthurian legend. It is a tile-laying game of medieval castle building.

“I have known the team at Ares for a number of years and found them to be great people,” said Laurence O’Brien, director of business development for Wotan Games. “Looking at the quality of their production and games, it was a logical step to work with them.”

Camelot the Build is set to be launched at GenCon in August 2013. Wotan Games will be at GenCon and a number of conventions in 2013, including UK Games EXPO, according to the release.

“Wotan Games have always offered great games, and when they approached us we saw the proven track record,” said Ares CEO Christoph Cianci. “They are looking to create quality hobby products and it has been great working with them.”
