Okay. Let's keep this simple.
You back this project for $1.
You will suggest one (and only one) TITLE for this game.
But that's to be expected. I reserve the right to veto a dumb game title that no one would ever want to play.
And you will vote on one TITLE as well.
Whatever the case, I will write a game about the winning TITLE.
Everyone gets a pdf of that game for $1.
It's not overly complicated.
You are backing an award-winning writer who recently finished an 88-page roleplaying game in two weeks.
This book will be at least 50 pages and more than $1 later.
This is going to be a fun project.
So. Let's make it fun. Let's not complicate it with… stuff.
UPDATE: There is a lot of information on the updates, the stretch goals, and all over this page. This is a serious project. It is inexpensive, but not cheesy.
You vote for a cheesy title.
It is $1. This is a fantastic and unique experiment. With stretch goals, this book is now well over 100 pages.
Everyone who backs this gets the same thing. We are merely voting for the TITLE. Heck. I may throw some ideas into the ring.
Voting happens AFTER the KS completes. Suggestions happen as the KS goes on.
Each $1 backer is allowed to submit one TITLE and vote for one TITLE. An ongoing list of titles will be kept in the comments thread here and I will monitor votes.
The winning game TITLE will be developed by me, though the person who submitted the TITLE may be tapped for ideas for what goes into the game.
