Concarolinas and what is next

Sorry to anyone who is seeing this twice, the original post got lost due to some server issues so I’ve had to re-publish it.

So at the beginning of last month we were guests at ConCarolinas. Great time and we’ll definitely have to go again next year. Besides the various panels me and James talked on we also showcased a board game we’ve made currently tentatively titled Hexit Strategy.

The second day of the convention we got several people to play our little game and even had three games going at once! So right now we are looking at few things to do next.

  • Looking at thegamecrafter.com or some other source to make a printing of the game.
  • Looking into kickstarter or other potential sources of funding for said run(losing 10% between them and finance fees doesn’t seem like the best thing though)
  • Working on making a digital version of the game.
  • Re-write the rules so they are easier to understand without someone who knows the game explaining them.

That last one I discovered when I had the guy from Bower’s Game Corner review it from our Print & Play pdf.

 

The digital version has been a little bit slow in part because of exhaustion from the convention and also a bit of craziness going on in personal life. I’m going to be trying to get back to it now though and regularly make progress, update you all here, or ideally both.

 

On another note if anyone of you out there are good with user interface design, especially if you’ve used Unity3d and NGUI before and would be interested in helping out with Fortunes, please let me know.

 

What are your favorite conventions? Where should we be going to try and show off/drum up interest in our games either board or video? Let us know in the comments!

We are entering the final hours for the grimace kick starter. Thank you to everyone who has helped support us.

If you were waiting until the last minute we’re hear, if you weren’t planning on helping fund the project, we’d like some constructive feedback to help improve in the future.

Thanks for reading!

Grimace Half-way Mark

solely for the half way there line

So we’ve made it a little over halfway through the time left for the grimace kickstarter. I know some of the people I’ve talked to personally are procrastinating because they have time and I’m hoping others are doing the same too, but we’re half way there, only 2 weeks left so go ahead and go for it folks.

In other news I’ve been reading The design of everyday things and User interface design for programmers. Hopefully these two books will help me with making fortunes more straight forward and obvious to people who don’t already know the rules since the most common feedback I get is something that boils down to, “What do I do?”.

Have you played Fortunes yet? If you haven’t take a moment and go play fortunes. If you have please leave us your feedback.

Grimace kickstarter

We are starting a Kickstarter for the face-making card game some of you may have heard we made, Grimace. We will be using the money to print out decks and James will head out to local stores and do his business-y thing he does and get them to carry and sell it. Hopefully this will be a fun casual party game we can bring to you all and if it’s successful it may help us speed along the development of other projects we have going on in tandem.

Support Grimace here.

How can we make Grimace a better game for you? What updates would you like to see before we print it?

We’ve got our first press mention! On the sixth an interview Rai Sewgobond did with us got posted up on Eye For Games. Things are looking positive.

As a side note we are also working on a kickstarter for a side project so look for news about that once we get some more details worked out.
