Ramping Back Up: Post-Kickstarter week 9
Hey there, residents of Gloomhaven!
Well, it's been a rough past few weeks for me in terms of making progress on the Gloomhaven project, but I'm pleased to report that I am finally getting back into the stride of things. Today's update will not be big and flashy, but I have great faith that much more progress will be reported in future updates.
The thing I am most excited about getting into full swing is play testing. I know I announced it a few weeks ago and have been encouraging people to sign up ever since (you still can, by the way!), but it got off to a rocky start because of BGG Con.
My head is 100% in the game now, though, so I'm ready to ramp this up for real. If you've messaged me about play testing, expect to hear more from me over the next week.
Content creation on my end is also ramping up again. I'm continuing to generate new scenarios and work on advanced item cards now that the monsters and character classes are largely finished. I've also been starting to hear back from guest designers about their ideas for scenarios, so that's exciting as well.
I feel like there is enough content that I am now talking to a professional board game editor as well about helping with the project. I know with all the typos and other stuff you all have caught on the prototype cards, people will be happy to hear that in-depth editing is being taken care of, as well.
On other fronts, Josh, Alexandr and Álvaro continue to toil away. There seems to have been a lot of sickness recently (including myself), but it I think it is letting up now. Josh is starting to work on the rule book and scenario book, which are huge undertakings, while Alexandr continues to make new item art and Alvaro works on new map tiles.
And that's all I've got for you this week. I promise next week will be more exciting!
One last thing I'd like to mention real quick, though, is that this is the final week of the Perdition's Mouth Kickstarter campaign. They haven't yet reached the funding level where I get to make a scenario for them, which makes me sad (at least, I think they haven't - they took my name out of the stretch goal graphic, but I think I'm still at $80k). Go check out the project if you haven't.
Okay, until next time!
