Stone Age Coming to Digital From Acram Digital

Five posts in a week?

It’s been a newsy week, that’s for sure.

I wasn’t going to post anything today, giving myself a rest, but then I saw something in my email last night.

Stone Age, the venerable (2008) worker placement designed by Bernd Brunnhofer and published by Z-Man Games and Hans im Glück, is coming to Steam!

Developed by the awesome Acram Digital, developers of many great games like Concordia and Istanbul, in addition to Unmatched (so Acram is full of news this week!)

No word on any other digital platforms, but you can wishlist it here on Steam.

There are even a couple of pictures of the game in action on the Steam site.

Stone Age used to be a thing on iOS (I don’t think it ever made it to Android) but the company stopped supporting it and may even have gone out of business.

Kudos to Acram for bringing this one back into the fold (though will it come to iOS and Android? I would assume so at some point).

I’ve never played the game on the table, but I did play the app a few times (and even once or twice on Boardgame Arena) and it’s fine.

I’m not super-enthused about the game itself, but Acram Digital is a great company making great digital adaptations of boardgames and that’s something I want to support.

Another email from them mentioned that there will be three levels of AI (which is pretty standard for them, I think?), online multiplayer with a ranking system (nothing about asynchronous multiplayer, but I assume there will be as most Acram games have that) and online matchmaking.

Not much more about this so far, except that it’s expected in Q2 2023. So maybe only a few months away?

Not even any pricing information at this point.

How about the teaser trailer to whet your whistle?

Are you enthused about it? Is this a day 1 purchase for you?

Let me know in the comments.

  1. I was thinking you were blogging prolifically recently! Thanks for keeping us up to date with all the apps!
    Haven’t played Stone Age, but it looked interesting when it came out… so maybe this is my chance to try it!

    • Yeah, I was all set on my 2-3 posts a week thing and then boom! Every day, there was some bit of news that I thought I wanted to write about.

      Of course, that means that next week will probably be pretty empty. 😛

      I’ve only played Stone Age on the app way back when, and a couple of times on BGA. Will be interesting to see how Acram does with it.

        • LOL I appreciate that, but my news posts are only things that are of interest to me, so just paying attention to me would make it a bit skewed :).

          That being said, when there is news I’m interested in, I don’t want it to wait to meet my schedule to post it
