Former Train2Game students now professional developers launch official Games Workshop app just in time for Christmas
Independent Video Games and Apps developer, Derp Studios, today release its tactical objectives app created with Games Workshop to accompany the Warhammer 40,000 board game. The team which includes Train2Game students has been working with Games Workshop to create the app.
The app has been designed to assist in playing the latest version of the popular table top game, offering a digital version of tactical objectives cards which previously were only available on limited edition print runs. This is one of the first ever official licensed hobby apps which supports the Warhammer 40,000 table-top game.
Chris Ledger, CEO and Lead Designer of Derp Studios; “The Warhammer 40,000: Tactical Objectives App is one of the first hobby Apps to directly support the Warhammer 40,000 table-top board game. The aim of the App is to enable players who don’t have a physical copy of either the regular or faction based Tactical Objectives cards to be able to own their factions deck, since the physical copies are on limited print runs.”
“Players of Warhammer 40,000 (the tabletop wargame) will benefit from the app a lot with this being the digital version. We’ve added a couple of decks. We’ll be constantly adding decks to the app and we do have a couple of features we want to add later on down the line too.”
“Things are going well with the folks at Games Workshop. Everyone’s pretty busy and they have a lot of cool stuff going on, especially on the video game licensing side. Games Workshop are really good work alongside with. They’ve been really supportive and have provided a lot of assets for us to use. So far it’s been nothing but positive and a really enjoyable experience!”
“The development process has been very challenging and had its ups and downs but we got there in the end. For Derp Studios this app alone is a big milestone in the company! I’m not sure what the future holds for more hobby apps within the Warhammer 40,000 IP, however if I’m unable to produce another hobby app then I’d happily make a small licensed video game for them.”
