K2: Digital Edition, Key Art

Board games span across different genres from fantasy, to economy, and even mystery. But how about a recreational activity, specifically mountain climbing? Well, K2 is a board game that’s exactly about that. The board game was first published in 2011. Thirteen years later and a digital video game version of the game is now in development. Allowing the board game to cater to the video gaming market. But instead of just porting the board game as is, the video game version is more like an adaptation than a simple digital version. Featuring amazing visuals and a pretty unique artstyle, K2: Digital Edition is looking like yet another awesome party game to play with your friends.

K2: Digital Edition will be available on Steam sometime this year 2024. If you’re interested in the game then don’t forget to give it a Wishlist!
