Where We Are and Where We're Going
The Mission Continues
It's been a while since the last update, and we have some things to talk about.
Production on Solarius Mission continues. We have sent the 3D files off to the manufacturer and the molds are in the process of being made. We're finishing the base layout for the rulebook and the variants, but still have a little ways to go on that as we have fallen a bit behind - life sometimes gets in the way, and there's been a lot of life going on in our world recently. Not to worry, though, because we'll have everything in place and are still on time to make our 1st quarter 2019 delivery deadline.
So, the Mission is still on track. Space beckons.
Some Con(vention) Jobs
A reminder: We'll be at Cin City Con in Cincinnati, OH (Sharonville, to be exact), this weekend (October 12, 13 & 14). We head up to the Blue Chip City Thursday and will be smack dab in the middle of the gaming hall, so come by and see us. We'll have a copy of Solarius Mission (1st edition) with us and, for anyone interested, can play the game during the evenings.
In addition, we will have a prototype of Dark Side of the Mine and we'll have the 1st edition of The Cousins' War with us to show everyone. Both games will be demoed throughout the day. We have partnered with Surprised Stare Games to bring the 2nd edition of The Cousins' War to the States and, come December, we will have a VERY limited number of copies to sell.
So what is The Cousins' War? It's a two player game in which you play as House York or House Lancaster battling it out during what has come to be known as The War of the Roses. Learn more by Clicking Here.
Also, continuing our Con Coverage, if you're going to be at Essen-Spiel in a couple of weeks, stop by the Fowers Games booth (Booth 5-H110) and say Howdy to Flying Lemur's own Mischa Harris. He's representing our "little company that can" at the biggest convention in all the land.
Dark Side of the Mine Coming to Kickstarter
Mark this date down: Monday, October 29. That's the day we're launching the Kickstarter campaign for our next big hit, Dark Side Of The Mine.
This is a fantastic game for 1 - 4 players. In the near future, you compete with other mining companies to collect the most ore from a nearby asteroid. Discover the largest veins of Iron, Copper, Gold and Uranium while making sure you stay one step ahead of the setting sun. If you're caught on the dark side of the asteroid, you will quickly find yourself out of communication until the sun comes up and unable to continue mining for the valuable minerals.
We have some great stretch goals in mind for this one. So tell your friends and family and, generally, let everyone you have ever known throughout your life know about the upcoming launch of Dark Side Of The Mine on Kickstarter at the end of the month.
That's it for now. See you at the Cons!
