*** Thank you everyone, we did it! A description of the bonus stretch goals can be found in the updates section. ***
The Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game from Goodman Games simply rocks with awesomeness, and with your support The Crawler's Companion will help put the DCC RPG experience into the hands of gamers everywhere!
Why Your Pledge is Needed
At Purple Sorcerer Games, we create adventures for the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, but we're also committed to creating free utilities to help the DCC RPG community grow. Our popular 0-level Party Generator has loosed over 130,000 determined peasants into the gaming world, and we've been thrilled by your wonderful response and words of support.
The video above demonstrates that the Crawler's Companion is largely feature complete. So why do we need a Kickstarter? The demo shows the program running on a desktop PC: the funds you provide will help us acquire equipment and tools to test and build the program on mobile devices where it belongs and will truly shine! (You can play around with the web demo here.)
The Crawler's Companion is constructed from the ground up with tablets in mind, and works well on the developer's Kindle Fire. Your support will help us release it on both the iPad and Android 2.2 and higher tablets as a free download from the Apple, Amazon, and Google Play App Stores.
We want to get the Crawler's Companion to as many gaming tables as possible to help promote and facilitate the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG - in our minds one of the most exciting systems (and mindsets) to arrive in years. Please help us make it happen.
(While not directly related to the goals of this Kickstarter, the equipment purchases made possible - primarily Mac and iOS stuff - will help with all future releases of DCC utilities on these platforms. Consider it loving platform evangelism toward this devoted PC developer...)
What comes next?
As the Kickstarter develops, we'll listen to you about additional features to add as stretch goals! Enhancements will definitely include adding more dice sets to choose from, devoting extra efforts testing compatibility on smaller format devices including the iPhone and Android phones, and perhaps even adding the legendary "sixth screen" - at this time only vague ruminations lurking in the minds of deranged sorcerers!
Crawler's Companion features include:
- Funky Dice Roller: D3-D100 and everything in between
- Critical Hit Charts: All player and monster charts
- Failure Charts: Fumbles, corruptions, misfires, deity disapproval!
- Rules Reference: Many topics available for quick reference.
- Spell Reference and Resolution: Yep, they’re all there!
- Multiple Modes: Have the program roll for you, or use it to quickly reference the charts based on your own physical dice rolling
Who can resist a 0-level champion t-shirt!
