PARIS - Sept 16, 2020 - Asmodee Digital, a leader in video game entertainment inspired by board games, has announced that Scythe: Digital Edition is now available on iOS, iPadOS and Android. Based on the original dieselpunk-themed board game from designer Jamey Stegmaier, and featuring artwork from the board game’s original artist, Jakub Rozalski, Scythe: Digital Edition builds atop the acclaimed 2018 PC release, tailoring the experience to touch screen for mobile devices. To celebrate the launch, Asmodee Digital has released new screenshots, as well as a new launch trailer. The game is available now on the App Store for €8.99 / $9.99 and Google Play for €8.99 / $8.99.

 

Scythe is an engine-building asymmetric competitive board game set in an alternate 1920’s period. In the game, each player represents a fallen leader attempting to restore their honor and lead their faction to power in Europa. Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, build structures and activate monstrous mechs.

 

Originally launched in summer 2016, the original Scythe board game captured the attention of tabletop fans, receiving $1.8M dollars in support from 17,739 backers on Kickerstarter in the span of only 30 days. Since then, the game has sold more than 308,000 units worldwide. In 2018 Scythe: Digital Edition was released on Steam and GOG for PC and Mac and earned accolades for its sterling visuals and polished gameplay. The mobile edition was developed by the Knights of Unity team and expands on the legacy of the original board game and digital edition by utilizing the signature aesthetics of Scythe and enabling cross-platform play, allowing PC, Mac, iOS and Android players to play together.
