Vintage solo board game Chainsaw Warrior going digital

'The Dark Souls or Super Meat Boy of its day'

Joining the ever-growing list of board games turned videogame is Games Workshop's 1987 solo adventure Chainsaw Warrior. In the solo affair, one man is tasked with saving New York from an evil presence known as the Darkness. As expected from the title, he primarily fights evil with a chainsaw, and as expected from that, he fails at his task more often than not; like most solo or cooperative board games, the title is known for being brutally difficult.

Though the original version has somewhat middling ratings on BoardGameGeek, developer Auroch Digital seems pretty passionate about the project, with Design and Production Director Tomas Rawling citing it as a game he played and loved as a child. We'll see how it's received by today's audiences when it releases later this summer on mobile and tablets. PC and Mac releases are slated for even later this year.
