Heroes of Land, Air, & Sea

Project image

Heroes of Land, Air & Sea is a 4X style board game (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) for 2-6* players that plays in 2 hours, and features 80 highly detailed miniatures, including an option for pre-painted hero figures, and over 30 constructs! Heroes of Land, Air & Sea breaks the mold of regular 4X games in that it is easy to learn, simple to play, and games only last 2 hours. It is a Scott Almes design after all, designer of the Tiny Epic series. See this not-so-tiny epic game on Kickstarter now!

“We’re all influenced by other games. The newer and hotter your influence, the more likely you’re parallel developing with hundreds worldwide.” – Eric Lang

“Designing for publication and designing to play with your friends are two completely different disciplines that require almost opposite mindsets. Start there, and your life/work choices will become abundantly clear.” – Eric Lang

Pinball Showdown

Project image

In Pinball Showdown players are the pinball steering into a wide array of playfield devices while trying to score combinations, activate Wizard Mode and become the highest scoring pinball. To do this they must maintain a critical balance between speed and control. Go too slow and it will limit what you can score and put you at risk for draining, but go too fast and you may lose control!

Pinball Showdown is for 2-4 players and plays in 30 minutes. You can reserve your copy on Kickstarter now for just $24.

If a rule doesn’t add to the fun of the game, get rid of it. – Byron Collins

Designers, challenge yourself to streamline. Simplicity is harder than kitchen sink. – Byron Collins

Unless you know for sure that a suggestion isn’t going to pan out, then it’s worth doing due diligence and testing it out. You never know which decent-sounding suggestions will be right for the game, and which just won’t pan out, until you try them. – Seth Jaffee
