August 16, 2017: Ogre On Steam
We here at Steve Jackson Games are very proud to announce that Ogre has its own page on Steam and on our own site, in advance of the release of the full game October 5th by Auroch Digital. Now, interested players may tag Ogre on their wishlists. (Please do!). As many of you know, a computer version of Ogre is one of our few remaining promises from the Ogre Designer's Edition Kickstarter. With this event, we are one extraordinary step closer to fulfilling our promise to you, the Ogre community.
Additionally, Jake, the Auroch Digital community manager is live right now on our forum set up specifically for the computer game to answer questions about the forthcoming game.
Who needs fusion reactors anyway? Happy 40th Anniversary, Ogre!

Ogre and its sequel, G.E.V., are tactical ground combat games set in the late 21st century. In 2085 A.D., armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks and infantry slug it out with tactical nukes. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It's the giant cybernetic tank called the Ogre.
Ogre was Steve Jackson's first design. It was originally released in 1977, as the first Metagaming Microgame. Since then, it has appeared in Pocket Box and "Deluxe" large-board editions, as well as a miniatures version and a computer game from Origin Systems (now long out of print).
