It's been a few weeks since gamecrafter has launched.

Have there been any success stories?

Still think it is a great idea and love the fact the are expanding thier parts etc.

Almost ready to submit a game but curious about success, traffic etc.

I've produced a simple and light-hearted game there just to test the water in terms of quality and service. Both of which seem to be quite present.

As far as sales go, I have had my game up for about two weeks and I haven't sold a single copy yet. It seems that most sales seem to be generated within the TGC community and from personal references thus far.

In my opinion they need to expand their selection of parts and, when that's done, start a marketing campaign of some kind to get sales traffic in from other places.

In the long-term though, it's a very progressive model and I think it will be very lucrative both for them and their participants.

...and it's name is?

I tried them out for a prototype and was very pleased with the cards. The boards were misprinted, or else I really got confused in my use of the templates they provided, as the dimensions were warped, but I'm sure that could have been worked out. I have access to a color laser printer, so it wasn't worth worrying about. Unless artscow is running a sale, it's competitive for custom cards. I'll be using them again for my next prototype.

I also had some issues with misprints and had a long discussion with one of their reps about it. They were really helpful about it, refunded my money, and told me that they were going to be replacing their printers soon so the errors would stop happening as often. That was a few weeks ago. I haven't ordered anything since their upgrades but from what I have seen in photos the quality appears to have improved a lot. Also the prices went down a little bit since their new machines are more efficient so that's another plus.

What's in a Name?

Poop is not a real good thing to associate your product with. It may be the name that is holding back sales :)

In most cases you would be right. But it's a vital part of the satire. It's an MMO-player thing.
