Renegade Game Studios and Oni Games To Publish Autumn Harvest: A Tea Dragon Society Game

Renegade Game Studios and Oni Games have announced Autumn Harvest: A Tea Dragon Society Game designed by Steve Ellis and Tyler Tinsley.

Illustrated by Katie O’Neill, Autumn Harvest is based on her Eisner-winning Oni Press original graphic novel The Tea Dragon Society (2017) and its companion The Tea Dragon Festival (2019).

Autumn Harvest: A Tea Dragon Society Game follows up the 2019 Origins Award-winning family game The Tea Dragon Society Card Game and will allow fans and gamers to explore the secrets of Tea Dragon caretaking in an enchanting world of friendship.

Autumn Harvest is a standalone game that can be combined with The Tea Dragon Society Card Game to expand gameplay, and is expected to release in late 2020.

“I’m thrilled that Autumn Harvest will expand on the charming and thoughtful game created by Steve and Tyler,” commented Katie O’Neill. “Meeting new friends and enjoying the seasons are important aspects of the Tea Dragon world, and I hope Harvest will offer a new opportunity for friends and family to make lovely memories together.”

“We are so excited to work with our friends at Oni Games to share this follow-up of the successful The Tea Dragon Society Card Game with our fans,” said Scott Gaeta, president of Renegade Game Studios. “We’re delighted to offer family-friendly gaming experiences that bring Katie’s positive, whimsical and gentle stories and messages to the gaming community.”

“Working with our friends at Renegade Game Studios is always fun and being able to deliver another richly themed family gaming experience to the table is extra special.” said Steve Ellis, head of Oni Games. “Our team loves working with Katie O’Neill and bringing her world of The Tea Dragon Society to life provides us and her fans with another opportunity to smile.”
