First glimpse

We are finalizing the development for my pick up and deliver game Tahiti. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/118776/tahiti

I found out this weekend that a friend was hired to do the final rules edit, which is cool because not only is he a friend but he is an award winning rules writer. Yes they do give awards for that.

I also just got the first glimpse of the art, or at least some concept sketches. I was hoping for a different artist than was chosen but im feeling better after seeing two very nice cover art concepts. One being quite humorous and the other more atmospheric setting a mood that fits the theme.

The artist has also started on the game components. We will be doing a kickstarter campaign for Tahiti which will include a demo video of how it works. Originally I was going to use one of my prototypes to shoot the demo but I think we are going to wait for the final art; it will make the video more appealing.

This last stage of getting published can be frustrating or exhilarating depending on your publisher. Working with Minion Games has been a pleasure because I’m consulted on every aspect of the final development; writing, art, layout, components, etc…. Not that I have veto power on final decisions but I do get to put my two cents in.

More to come as we get closer
