Renegade Games Give Select Fans & Stores 3 Month Early Release Access to The Search for Lost Species!

Follow up to the award winning and critically acclaimed Search for Planet X

San Diego, CA (January 30, 2023) — Renegade Game Studios will launch the Search for Lost Species 3 months early in participating retail stores and to a limited number of fans. Stores can back the game on Kickstarter starting January 31st and can expect to receive games in May of 2023. The full release and retail distribution will be in August and coincide with a public Gen Con launch. 

“When we launched the Search for Planet X it was a smash hit and we couldn’t print it fast enough” said Scott Gaeta, president at Renegade Games “It took us a full year and seven print runs to finally catch up with demand. Stores were understandably frustrated. This program is to give stores the opportunity to be a part of the launch in a special and very early way.”

The Search for Lost Species gameplay isn't just more of the same.

Here's some of the new challenges players will take on!

  • Six different Lost Species to look for - Each has its own logic rules and will present a unique challenge!
  • Explore two different island maps, introducing a spatial aspect to the deduction!
  • Town Cards - Each provides a power or ability that will aid in your search!
  • Three different terrain types provide an additional layer of logic and relationships!
  • From the same design team as The Search for Planet X, Ben Rosset & Matthew O’Malley.

The Search for Lost Species was made using eco-friendly materials!

  • No plastic in the components or packaging.
  • The latest in sustainable premium cardstock using sugarcane rather than traditional lumber, which takes longer to renew.
  • Produced by a factory with eco-friendly practices such as solar power and grey-water recycling in their manufacturing process.
