FAN-tastic Contest! (I'm sure that pun has never been used before)

Some of our amazing backers have created their own Fanart/Cosplay/Video contest over on the WayForward subreddit and it ends in a few weeks!  This contest was created by the fans for the fans and everyone should check out the entries and enter themselves!

Music to our Eyes, Gaming for our ears

We wanted to bring a pretty neat kickstarter to your attention.  Sentris is a cool twist on puzzle and music games that allows you to create a new and original song as you play! They're really close to hitting their funding goal so click on over, take a look and listen, and help them out if you can!

      @Wayforward - Any chance that the GameNatomy for Demon's Crest will be posted as highlights on the TwitchTV channel or your Youtube channel, I had to work last night so I wasn't able to see it, I love DC too, I still have my boxed copy I bought new back in 1994 from Babbages.

      I'd love to see and hear what the wayforward crew has to say about that awesome game. Pretty please with sugar on top?
