The Hexy Studio Games section is updated with two upcoming games: the highly interactive "discard builder" Star Scrappers Cave-In and the engine-building, worker placement card game Star Scrappers Orbital. They are due to release in August 2021.

Star Scrappers - Cave-In: a highly interactive "discard builder" game.

These two new games are set in the Star Scrappers Universe, a space western setting invented and developed by Hexy Studio. Countless alien species explore the galaxy in search of wealth and glory. Last interstellar war between Terrons and Hy'drans broke out 50 years ago and since then peace treaties are in power. Trade routes are set, civilizations flourish, but new source of unlimited power is discovered - Hexis crystals. New space nations arrive to influence history - cybernetic Bioss and mechanical Metanels. Old inhabitants of ancient planets - Weedlocks and Minegglers are pursuing their mysterious goals once again.

Cave-in is a highly interactive "discard builder" game for 2 to 4 players, playing the role of Trade Guild representatives who compete in difficult, merciless industry - mining. Their task is the excavation of Hexis crystals. Players take roles of Galactic entrepreneurs, rival mining bosses who compete in this difficult, sometimes even merciless industry. As a mining boss, each player will have to recruit new mercenary laborers, use their skills, and collect precious artifacts. Their job is to excavate the Hexis crystals but never let their guard down though, as competition is waiting for a chance to buy off their trusted men and steal the bounty from under their nose! The goal of the game is to get as many victory points as possible before the crystal mine collapses.

Orbital: a game by Jacob Fryxelius, designer of "Terraforming Mars".

Orbital is an engine-building, worker placement card game for 1-5 players. Originally designed by Jacob Fryxelius, the creator of the great "Terraforming Mars", it got set in the Star Scrappers universe. The game spans 5 years (rounds), marked on the Year card by the Year marker. Each player builds their own space station (orbital), starting with a core module.

During the game, they take turns to perform one action each: build modules to expand their orbitals, play event cards, make repairs, buy cards from the market, and operate their modules. Each year they each start with a five card hand, crew tokens, and new money, the amount of crew and money determined by the structure of their orbital. When everyone passes, the year ends and victory points are awarded. At the end of the fifth year, the player with most victory points wins.
