Atomic Mass Games – What are you doing?!

So yesterday was May 4th which is a pretty nice day for *any* company that sells or makes stuff in the Star Wars universe to promote the shit out of it.

Atomic Mass Games has 4 such franchised games under it’s belt:

  • Star Wars: X-Wing
  • Star Wars: Armada
  • Star Wars: Legion
  • Star Wars: Crisis Protocol  Shitterpoint  Shatterpoint

You’d expect tons of social media posts from there. Especially in the year that marks the 40th anniversary for Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

And did they do? As far as I can find they did two (2) articles that are copy & pasted over Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

One is promoting this „Smart Phone/Mobile device wallpaper“ from SW:SP

„If you define yourself by the power to take life, the desire to dominate, to possess – then you have nothing.“ – Obi-Wan Kenobi, STAR WARS: Rebels

On this May 4th, we hope you’ll enjoy Obi-Wan’s STAR WARS: Shatterpoint wallpaper.

And the other one being a promotional link to the asmodee shop for pre-ordering a „Duel Pack“. Which turns out to be a bit more then a piece of scenery and two miniatures for the low price of 89USD- Fucking WHAT?!

Happy STAR WARS Day! Pre-orders are now available for our very first “Duel Pack” for STAR WARS: Shatterpoint, featuring Darth Vader, a new version of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and terrain from their iconic battle featured in the STAR WARS: Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

The bar of expectation was low AMG but this is ridiculous! Seriously, get your act together!

Regarding all games Star Wars from AMG right now: I have a bad feeling about this.

Ok, rant over, I need more coffee and have work to do.
