As our current Kickstarter, Legendary Showdown: Presidential Edition, comes to an end, we are looking to the future and considering our next project. Obviously, we are huge fans of Dr. McNinja, and we think it's about time we had Dr. McNinja in our lives again.
In the past, we spoke about the possibility of creating a board game with Dr. McNinja miniatures and map tiles. Bigger games like these come with higher risk and require more funding, so we have been waiting for Christopher Hastings to begin a new webcomic series before we continue work on the game. Unfortunately, Christopher Hastings is so incredibly popular that he's been occupied with projects for Marvel, Adventure Time, and others. We don't know when Mr. Hastings will begin another comic series. It's entirely possible that a man of his immense talent will never find the time. That leads us to an important question, and we'd like your help answering it.
We've been considering our options, and we have several great ideas. We'd like to know which one you prefer.
1) We can continue waiting for Christopher Hastings to run out of incredible projects and start another comic of his own. At that time, we could continue developing a full Dr. McNinja board game.
2) We can develop some sweet Dr. McNinja miniatures. In the event that we publish a similar full board game in the future, we could consider making some print-at-home cards that would allow the miniatures to be used as an expansion to the game.
3) We can create a Dr. McNinja party game along the lines of Werewolf or Mafia, except this game would feature ninjas, vampires, werewolves, and more. Instead of the werewolf or mafia (the traditional bad guys) eliminating other players, the secret ninjas (the good guys) would have to decide each turn if they want to assassinate a person they believe to be an enemy, but who might actually be an ally. The enemies would try to convert people to their teams by changing them into vampires or werewolves. Additionally, each player would be given a card with a disguise (like the bearded masks used by the McNinja family) to represent their character, and instead of having everyone try to determine who the enemies are based on a hunch, players would be provided with clues - some real, and some fake.
If any of these projects sound amazing to you, please let us know! You can state your preference with our one question survey here: https://goo.gl/forms/jy77cWxcfryC98vI2
If you have other ideas, we'd love to hear those too! We believe you deserve everything good we can give you.
Don't forget! The Kickstarter for the Presidential Edition of Legendary Showdown ends in a few days! We should be fully funded today and on our way to stretch goals. One stretch goal we have discussed is a limited reprint of some past Kickstarter-exclusive cards, including Dr. McNinja cards. If you or a friend missed a previous Dr. McNinja exclusive, then you will want to keep an eye on the stretch goals. All of our past Dr. McNinja coins, magnets, and other Legendary Showdown games are also available again at Kickstarter prices.
