Newark-based Ergo Sum Games has announced the upcoming release of a Dan Dare: Adventures in Space strategy game.

“Britain’s favourite sci-fi hero is finally here in a board game extravaganza. All the main characters are represented in retro space adventures based on the original stories and escapades in a time when the solar system was teeming with alien life – some good and some very, very bad…”
