pontificated on a hypothetical new edition of the pocket-sized version of GEV, the sequel to the microgame Ogre. At the time, I didn't think such a product would ever hit the market.
Now, I'm happy to be proven wrong. Steve Jackson Games announced yesterday that it is considering releasing Pocket GEV late this year or sometime next year. No other details, except that it will probably have a retail price of $9.95.
In order to keep costs down, I doubt they will include any unit that wasn't in the earlier editions of GEV. This means only light tankes and mobile howizters (in addition to the Ogre units also found in GEV). Still, I'd like to see light GEVs and Superheavy tanks added to the counter mix. But who knows--we have some time to speculate.
I will certainly get a copy or two. Anyone else plan on buying this game when it comes out?
UPDATE: SJG exec Phil Reed says they're considering it, but nothing's set in stone. So take this all with a grain of salt.
