“Don’t be afraid to give up on an idea if it isn’t working. You can always come back to it later or put it into another game. Don’t try to force a game together. It won’t be fun.” – Jonathan Bouthilet

Hero Dice

Project image

Hero Dice (from Skies of Dice) is a dice-based competitive role-playing game where everyone is trying to become the most famous Hero. Every player has a die for their race, class, and ability they start with, and can change by striking their own die with rolls during the game. On each turn you roll a game die to decide if you battle another player, fight a Bandit, or gain Fame/Infamy. You can spend Fame/Infamy in combat and recruiting hirelings. Focusing on dice gives a great chance to experiment with different gameplay you wouldn’t find normally with a board game or deck-builder. One moment you’re an Elven Warrior, countering enemy weakness, and the next you’re a Griffin Mage, able to mimic what your opponent can do. Take a look at Hero Dice on Kickstarter and reserve your copy for only $59!

“A mechanic being mathematically satisfying isn’t the same as it being fun to play. In game design, make sure you don’t confuse the two.” Fred Hicks

Creature College

Project image

In Creature College (from Happy Otter Games) you play a gifted young student determined to win the Creature College Cup. You’ll collect creatures, build your research lab, complete secret missions, and fight nail biting battles to smack down your foes and take home the prize! Creature College is easy to learn but has plenty of depth to challenge even experienced gamers. How should you build your research lab? Is it worth overbidding your opponent on a creature card? Should you use a creature in battle now or save it for later in the game? Creature College is on Kickstarter now. You can reserve your copy for just $49 (£32).

“Sometimes the best feedback you can get on a game is ‘This game just isn’t good enough’ even if it takes a long time to accept.” – Ben Pinchback
“Have you considered what makes your game special? I urge you to keep a focus on the hook of your game. Keep it in mind when designing. Keep it in mind when playtesting.”“ Ed P. Marriott
Thanks!
