1 st October 2013, Bristol, UK: The classic boardgame 'Chainsaw Warrior' first published by Games Workshop in 1987 and converted into a digital title by Auroch Digital launches today on Android via Google Play with other Android stores to follow soon. The game launched on  iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch last week to an enthusiastic fan reception and is expected to follow suit on Android.

Announced in July, it caused excitement with those new to the game interested in discovering a classic, and nostalgia with fans who fondly remembered playing it. The game sees players trying to save New York from dire peril as twisted forces spewing from a spatial rift attempt to rip the city from this reality into theirs. The fate of the city rests solely in the hands of a lone cybernetic solider known as the 'Chainsaw Warrior'. As the eponymous hero, the player must battle through a zombie infested Manhattan tenement in order to locate the controlling intelligence behind the dark army swarming from the spatial rift.

The digital version of the game has been created by Bristol based indie developer Auroch Digital. Auroch Digital's Design & Production Director, Tomas Rawlings announced the release: "We're really pleased with what we’ve created. The team has done an amazing job in creating a brilliant mix of the best of the boardgame with the possibilities of digital. I feel it’s both a fresh and nostalgic take on a classic game. We hope our fellow gamers enjoy facing the thrilling challenge of trying to save New York. Not all will succeed!

‘It’s wonderful to see this great game re-worked for today’s platforms’ said Jon Gillard, GW Head of Licensing ‘I can’t wait to get my pistol grip chainsaw revved up and stuck into some zombies’.

The game is out on  Google Play with PC, Mac and other Android stores to follow for $4.99/€3.99/£ 2.99.To keep in the loop with the project you can like Auroch Digital on  Facebook or follow them on  Twitter. The game's information page can be found at  chainsawwarrior.net

Time go get moving as you only have 60 minutes to save New York! #ChainsawWarrior
