About

The idea behind Mobilize was the trope of the angry mob, and the monsters they would fight. It embodies several gaming mechanics that I really enjoy, including strategy, resource management, playing as the bad guy (in the Monsters) and having everyone else against you (in the Mayor). I have found that my favorite aspect in any work of fiction is not the work itself, but rather the idea and feeling of it. Hence, the monsters are all based on traditional monsters, without actually giving specific names.

I have training in Digital Art, Traditional Art, and experience from a family of gamers. Using these, I hope to craft a fun game worthy of my family's Thanksgiving parties.

Here are some examples of the basic ideas for the cards. Please keep in mind that they are works in progress:

Risks and challenges

A major challenge is that I am one man, not a major company, and this game is quite large. Fortunately, I have a great support group in my family. If I begin feeling overwhelmed, they can help out, and keep me on track.
However, a crowded household comes with its own drawbacks, as well. My health has been troublesome recently, exacerbated by the continual loop of people getting sick, recovering, and falling back into sickness.
Thankfully, the time of most severe illnesses is passing, and once the new year starts, the whole house can fend off ailments with ease.
An additional difficulty is my inexperience, but this is mitigated by the tutelage of the college that put me here. Any questions on production can be solved by the instructors who pushed me forward.
