RetroEpic is giving the popular board game Flash Point Fire Rescue a digital makeover

You know how much we love digital board games here at Pocket Gamer. Today RetroEpic Software has let us know about their upcoming take on a popular board game, Flash Point Fire Rescue, coming to iPad and PC in 2017.

For those who aren't familiar with the title, Flash Point Fire Rescue is originally an award-winning, turn-based board game based around the demanding duties of a fire-fighter. Its digital counterpart is all that and more as you use strategy to command your highly-trained fire-fighters to rescue the men, women, children, and animals trapped inside the burning building.

It's everything you loved about the original game but in a more convenient package as there's no set-up needed, just boot the game and off you go. So far there are two houses to play in, lots of potential victims, and eight different fire-fighters to choose from, each of whom has their own specialist ability. You can play either solo matches, or you can play with friends in the online multiplayer. Needless to mention how pretty the art style is.

A lot of things are still unspecified in these early days but we'll let you know the details as soon as we know them ourselves, so keep an eye out.
