Slyville: a family game of blyffing and deceit,

Ares Games' website is updated with a new section dedicated to Hexy Studio. As announced in December 2019, Ares will distribute the English edition of Hexy Studio’s games in the United States and non-European countries. The first games to launch, in May 2020, will be Hard City, a tactical adventure miniature game in a “classic 1980s movie” setting, and Slyville, a family game of bluffing and deceit, releasing alongside with its first expansion, Jester's Gambit.

Hard City is a “one vs All” game in which one player takes the role of the evil mastermind Doctor Zero, while all the other players become brave Officers of the Hard City Police Department. The game is divided into episodes that form a full story of a struggle between the officers and the evil mastermind, with a mechanism of cutscenes and characters representing a whole array of pop culture archetypes, known to every movie geek.

In Slyville, each player is head of a guild operating in one of the world's major trade and cultural centers in the Middle Ages, sending his trusted henchmen to various districts to find trade bargains, make deals, and provide your organization with more power and wealth — maybe not always in a way that is completely legal. The first expansion, Jester's Gambit, spices up the struggle of the guild leaders in the slyest of all medieval cities.
