Privateer Press & WhiteMoon Dreams To Bring Steam-Powered Miniatures Combat to the Screen

Bellevue, WA. August 25, 2009—Privateer Press announced at Gen Con August 14th that they have licensed the rights for a WARMACHINE video game to WhiteMoon Dreams, a video game developer in Southern California.
The new video game will allow players to control various warcasters and their warjack battlegroups as they fight across interactive battlefields from the WARMACHINE world. The game will provide a rich online experience in addition to a sweeping single-player campaign mode that will follow several key warcasters through the epic saga of the WARMACHINE universe.

When asked about the agreement Privateer Press Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson said, “It has always been a dream of Privateer to see the characters and world we’ve created step off the tabletop and into other popular media. When WhiteMoon Dreams talked to us about their vision for the WARMACHINE video game, the game they described was exactly like the one I’ve always envisioned in my mind. I am extremely excited at the chance to work with this group of talented developers and watch as they bring the world of WARMACHINE to life like never before.”

Echoing that sentiment, WhiteMoon Dreams’ Game Director Kevin Mack stated, “Scott [Campbell] and I are huge fans of the WARMACHINE world. The source material is just fantastic—filled with rich characters and epic stories, with outstanding game design at its core. It’s a natural fit for an immersive video game experience. When we spoke at length with Matt about our thoughts for the game, it quickly became clear that we shared a vision for what this could be, and that cemented it—this was a game that had to be made.”
WhiteMoon Dreams is in the early stages of development for the game’s design and is courting interested publishers to partner on its marketing and distribution.
