About the game designers

Why I'm excited that Mark, Gene and Jeremy have contributed their games to Kickstarter campaign of our festival:

Our Last Best Hope by Mark Diaz Truman

Mark has impressed me with three things on Kickstarter. The first two are what I’d call two wildly successful Kickstarter campaigns in the past year. His first Kickstarter campaign for “The Play’s The Thing” got more than 1000% funding and his campaign for “Our Last Best Hope” was funded for over 400%. The third thing is his backer history. He has backed 87 projects. Talk about giving back to the community!

BOP! - D!Git - Q!nto by Gene Mackles

Gene’s debut into the Indie Games Industry was with IOTA: The great big game in the teeny-weeny box. Among other awards, he won the Mensa Mind Games competition and now we have a chance to offer his 3 newest games as part of this Kickstarter.

Stack & Attack by Jeremy Burnham

Sometimes Indie tabletop designers seem to be skeptical of how feasible it is to get their game published. In my view Jeremy and his team have shown with Stack & Attack producing a fun and professional looking game is definitely within reach. One thing that has impressed me is the speed (3 months time) and low budget with which they’ve gone about it.
