Tradewars - Homeworld: Now in BETA!

Well we had yet another group playtest our game with some very interesting feedback. We owe this to Joe (The Professor), who is doing a very good job of putting the game into the hands of gamers, so that we can get as much feedback as we can.

The question everyone must be asking themselves is "How much feedback did you get and what is the outcome of it?"

Okay so we got feedback mostly on the ten (10) roles in the game. Each turn a player may choose one out of the ten possible roles. This obviously expands what a player can do on his turn.

New and Improved Dice Stickers

We’ve improved our dice stickers quite a bit. They’re more accurate, have a higher quality edge, peal from the slug nicer, and now there are 225 per sheet instead of just 120. So if you need a lot of custom dice, you can do that. Perhaps best of all, we’re dropping the price by $1.10 per sheet down to $2.99 per sheet. That means that dice stickers went from 3 cents each to just 1 cent each!

Counters out - cards in

Cycling-Team-cards.png

I had been working on team counters for the two new games (Gridiron & Cycling) for specialized moves/plays to enhance both games.

The idea was to include a set of 6 tokens for 1 team in each game when sold. Then if people liked to collect teams, they could purchase the others on the website.

Killer Gamer's Remorse Challenge

The Game Crafter's Latest Game Design Contest!

Objective: a player elimination game that is implemented in such a way that it is still fun. Maybe it is a quick game like love letter. Maybe it is a longer game but the eliminated players still have a role to play like in werewolf via the “ghost writer” ability. Or maybe you finish is off in the most glorious fashion possible, so humorous that we are dying laughing for the next 30 minutes.

Hi there, my name is Tyler Reeves and I have a game that I've been working on for about 16 months now, play tested it 99 times and have it at a pretty good stage right now so I thought I'd share it with other game developers. The local gamers who've had a chance to play it have been nothing but kind towards it. Asking for me to bring it out all the time so they can play. I could actually have it it further along by now but I am currently jumping back and forth on 3 other games that I'm working on as well. This is the one that is furthest along because I have most of the art already done.

"Splat" (Sheet 1)

So after play testing Splat, more timesthen I want to admit, I’ve started to place it on a background that is notcells within a spreadsheet. Below is a sample page from “Splat”.

There are still changes that are being made:

- Clean-up cards (Napkins, Water, etc)
- Armor cards concept to be tested (Kettle helms, stool shields, etc)
- Proofreading
- Etc.

Let me know what you think would enjoy constructive feedback and ideas. Enjoy your day and the rest of the weekend.

Kickstarter? Is it time to join the bandwagon?

With our recent big batch of new games only on the market for a month, it's time to look forward again to the next lot. The experience of producing the recent six latest games taught a few lessons I will apply for future publishing.

Having pre-order options and supporters who took up the discounted price was certainly a great indicator people like our games. A few delays and unforeseen hiccups arise in any large production but all in all it was a success. I'm still packing the last of the 48,000 dice!
