Today, IDW Games announced it would be bringing its latest imported title to market in March of 2015. String Safari, a game of tile placement and string manipulation has players competing to complete research projects by roping in the most exotic animals. Designed by Hisashi Hayashi (Trains, Lost Legacy: Binbo Tantei to Inbo no Shiro) and featuring all-new artwork by Fico Ossio (Skylanders) this all-ages adventure will rope in gamers from all walks of life.
“We can’t wait for people to see this game,” said Pandasaurus Managing Director, Molly Wardlaw. “To get a chance to publish something from one of our favorite game designers is thrilling. Fans of his other hits will love the fact that they can play a well-designed game with their kids. Strap on your pith helmet, and get ready for Safari.”
String Safari is designed for three to five players and is playable in about thirty minutes. The game features both an advanced and basic set of rules, so there’s plenty of fun for both younger gamers and the more experienced. This is the latest import from Japon Brand games, the publisher behind the mega-hits Love Letter and Machi Koro. String Safari will retail for $24.99 and is scheduled for release in the spring of 2015.
