Black Locust Games in Nashville, TN was founded in 2012 by Casey and Aaron. They launched their first game, Regnum Angelica on Kickstarter in January 2014. The game funded, it was manufactured, and shipped to the backers within the promised timeframe specified on the campaign. Since then, they have been working on two new releases, one being The Opulent, and another called Nawakwa. They are a two-person team with the ability to design games all the way from the mechanics, to the graphic design / illustration. They also created their own website, all the videos, and even their mobile convention booth and signage made out of wood (photo below). They take pride in what they have accomplished as a two-person team, but of course, BLG could not be what it is today without the help and support of their fans and families though, especially their wives!
Risks and challenges
The Opulent is a finished, polished game with all the digital print files ready to be sent to the printers as soon as the project is funded. All we need is the money to start publishing it. But there is work still to do. Even though the game has been designed, thoroughly tested, and all the art has been created for it, any stretch goals that the project hits needs to be created and set for print, as well as working out logistics, warehousing, and fulfillment.
We have figured out the costs and have worked it, so that we can offer you the cheapest price yet still make it a viable venture, and keep the components high in quality. Black Locust Games is a small team of 4, and we want to be smart in our planning and expectations. We want to be transparent in our communications to you, the backers. We want you to share our project victories with The Opulent as well as be aware of any obstacles that the project is facing. We are ALWAYS open to any suggestions and feedback as this project would not be possible without you. There are a lot of pledges to fulfill, plus add-ons to manage. With that being said, we are working with a great manufacturing company that has shipped successful Kickstarter projects in the past and we have full confidence that we can deliver the game to you in time. In any case, we will be happy to refund pledges if for some totally unforeseen reason the game can't be delivered at all. Since the game is 99% complete (not including stretch goals), we don't regard this as too likely.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
