DENVER, CO – April 1, 2020 - Dire Wolf announced today that their latest digital adaptation of a tabletop game, Floodgate Games’ dice-drafting beauty Sagrada, is now available on Steam, iOS and Android. Indie-darling Sagrada was one of the best-reviewed board games of 2017, and now joins the recent releases of Raiders of the North Sea and Yellow & Yangzte in Dire Wolf’s growing library of digital tabletop adaptations. In Sagrada, players take turns drafting colorful dice and placing them in gorgeous stained-glass windows to complete puzzling patterns. The artisan who creates the most beautiful window wins! “The first time we played Sagrada, we knew it was something special,” says Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf. “The opportunity to take all of that luminous color and subtle strategy and wrap it up in a great digital game is exactly what we look for in a board game to adapt.” “Working with Dire Wolf to bring Sagrada to digital life has been an exciting process,” says Ben Harkins, Owner of Floodgate Games. “They’re raising the bar for how tabletop games can look and feel in digital media, and we couldn’t be happier with how well Sagrada has come together.” “It’s an odd time out there for everybody,” continues Martins. “We’re seeing a ton of interest in ways to move the social tabletop game experience into the digital world, and our hope is that games like Sagrada can scratch that board game itch from the comfort – and safe distance! – of your couch.” Sagrada is now available on Steam for $9.99 and on iOS and Android phones and tablets for $6.99. A Nintendo Switch release is planned for later this spring.
