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!
