"Everyone at Black Lab Games is a big fan of Battlestar Galactica", said Paul
Turbett, managing director of the development studio. “Our main goal is to give
the vast community of fans and followers a game that is deeply rooted in the
franchise’s values. We are creating a game that tells new stories, but with
familiar places, events and characters. And all of it will be captured in the
depth that our strategy game will offer".
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is a deep strategy game that also features a
strong narrative with an extensive cast of characters, both new and from the
existing lore. Fans will find all their favorite ships from Vipers, Raptors and
Battlestars, to Cylon Raiders and Basestars, in addition to a brand-new range of
ships designed exclusively for the game.

worked on", said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine group. "The Battlestar
Galactica universe has an incredibly loyal following and very high expectations.
As a publisher, we understand what it means to work on a project that has to
please a specific audience while delivering a deep strategic experience".
