Risks and challenges

Captain's Wager is Grey Fox Games' second self-published title. Our first title, Conquest of Speros has been a bit of a rougher road than we anticipated. This was mainly due to some poor quality control from the manufacturer that has held up production as we refuse to release a game that is not high quality. We've learned a lot through that process and believe that we now understand many of the pitfalls that we need to avoid. We are also moving forward with a more reputable manufacturer, and our time frame on this one is very conservative. We decided it would be much better to under promise and over produce instead of the other way around.

We have been working on and fine tuning Captain's Wager for almost a year. It's been a rough and interesting road with quite a few revisions, but since we never want to offer any game before we feel it's ready we did what we had to do... and we think the wait was worth it. We hope you will too.
