Last year we announced our first board game design SPECIMEN to the site. Since then we've been busy play testing and refining the game as well as taking pre-orders on our website.
I have always thought of this game cinematically. I was actually imagining scenes from an imaginary sci-fi film as I was coming up with the game events. So when my business partner Joe suggested that we use live actors posed with costumes and props instead of having artwork done for the events and characters, I totally agreed. Joe and I hired a costume designer, a photographer, and six actors, and started building props. The end result was a nine-hour photo shoot that produced some amazing pictures.
You can check out the new look for the game at our website. I’m very excited about how they’re coming out!
So far, the response to SPECIMEN has been beyond our expectations, but we are still not reaching our pre-order goal. So, we've decided to launch a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. Starting in early September, you will be able to help us make this game available. We have a bunch of reward levels and prizes as well as some cool unlockable goals that could really make SPECIMEN even better than it already is.
