16 Game articles, fans fiction, puzzles, and a mini-adventure all in one book.
I pledge to give 5% of the profits back to the Kickstarter community. More information on Kicking it Forward.
Less than a week to go for this project. I am sure some of you are wondering just what is in this book.
Articles covering 16 games which were launched with Kickstarter in 2012
Your content. Depending on the level of your pledge that will be as little as your name up to a page or two from each of you.
Puzzles, this book will either be 80 or 120 pages. All unallocated pages will be filled with puzzles. The types of puzzles will include word find, crossword, ciphers, hidden object, and what ever else my imagination can come up with.
Finally a mini-adventure. Weaved throughout the book will be a ‘create your own adventure’ style story. This story will have one of the following plot lines.
Thanks to the generous folks at Darkforge Games, I have permission to include their cute summoned minion Punge in the adventure. Punge ate too many pigs and Townies. This made for a rough night. He missed his summons to their place in the book and was stranded on the preface page. He needs your help to navigate through all the other games and find his way home to his Master.

If you have a game that will be out in the September/October time frame this is an opportunity to advertise it. A full page is only $80.00 and if you tweet about this you get 2 full pages.
My publisher uses epub/iBook format. I am looking for tools to convert to other formats. So far the tools I have found mess up the layout of images thus will not work. Message me if you have any advice in this area. This tool allows you to read epub books on PC's and other platforms. http://calibre-ebook.com/
