Hello Lyssan backers. It's been a long time, and yes, I have new games in the works. But I wanted to take this moment out to tell you about a project from Lyssan's graphic designer: Allan Amato.
Allan is making a documentary about how artists and creatives maintain the discipline to keep creating. Check out this teaser clip, in which Barron Storey shares one poem that keeps him going.
Allan has lined up luminaries of the fine art and comic book world: Grant Morrison, Jason Shawn Alexander, Dave McKean, David Mack, J.a.W. Cooper, and more than 40 others, to talk about maintaining motivation, day after day.
If that's a question whose answer matters to you, and that teaser video convinces you Allan is the guy to get the secret of inspiration out of these masters, you have just a few days left to back his campaign. Rewards include art. Massive volumes of art. Art books. Posters. Prints. Original pieces by the artists - many of them at prices no gallery would ever allow, and that you'll only see on KickStarter.
What Has the Rest of the Team Lyssan Been Up To?
Marek continues grinding out amazing fantasy art. These days, he's a full-time concept artist at CD Projekt Red, makers of the "Witcher" series of computer RPGs, and the highly anticipated Cyberpunk CRPG.
If you've kept up with hit games "Magic: the Gathering", "WarMachine", or the "Game of Thrones" living card game, you've seen Tomasz's work. Tomasz continues to be a six-shooting graphics-tablet-for-hire, spreading gritty fantasy images across the realms.
And me? Do I have new games to tell you about? Soon, soon. When they're ready, you'll be the first to know. Until then, thank you, kind backers, for making good games and good art possible.
