In 2014 crowd funding continued with some epically failing to reach the starting line, while others silently gained momentum smashing their targets. It was also the year that early access seemed to be everywhere, maybe a little too much in some case as the public want to make sure they are buying into the thing they have confidence in.
So in 2014 I backed a number of Kickstarters of those the following have been Fate tokens by Campaign coins, Vye: The Card Game by Sand Hat Games and Elegy for a Dead World: A Game About Writing Fiction by Debojaan Games.
I’m planning to put them to good use this year by running some Fate role playing games.
2) I had a copy of Elegy for a Dead World delivered via Humble Bundle, and redeemable on Steam. I have a weak spot for Debojaan games but then I’m rarely disappointed. The game sees you visiting alien worlds and help you create a narrative about the people who inhabited these distant worlds.
Featuring writing prompts that aim to inspire you to detail a story the final days of a worlds population.You can share your stories with others and there is even a pay on print option with screenshots from the game.
3) Finally is Vye which was being run by some of the ex-City of Heroes staff. The game is very simple area of control game and quite fast paced, I’m rather keen to play it at home and at my work game evening.
Additionally the artwork on the cards is awesome and I have the print and play version available to test before the final version arrives sometime in June.
