About

My name is Greg Chudecke and I am a Indie (Independent) Game Developer. This is my story:

I have always dreamed of starting my own game company. So when my son was born almost two years ago I thought, "Well it is now or never. Once he is in school I won't have time for such adventures." So I quit my job and moved in with my in laws! I now live 3 hours away from Seattle in small town Randle Wa. We made the move so we could save some money and have someone to watch my son while I work. In the meantime my wife has been working at the local lumber Mill to support us.

Fast forward to today a few months from launch. We have spent about every penny we owned, double mortgaged my old Condo and now have a new baby!

So our funds are extremely tight as you can imagine and I am worried that I will have to cut some of the polish and features to get this game shipped sooner. This is where you can help.

I am hoping to raise enough funds to finish my project with the polish level it deserves. In exchange I will be offering copies of the game (for a 20 dollar or greater donation) as well as a mention in the credits (5 dollars or greater donation) when it is completed.

You can find more info as well as screen shots (a year old now) at
http://www.farmlandsgame.com

Here is a more updated screen shot of the gameplay:

I have a Blog running at http://www.caffeinatedgames.com which is also a social network for gamers and Indie game developers.

So that is it in a nutshell. I put some info on the game below. I'll post updates on here as well.

Thanks so much!

Sincerely,
Greg Chudecke

Farmlands Info:

Farmlands is a collectible card / board game with a rich story mode that can be played alone or with another player. It also features a free for all where up to 4 players can battle for control of the land. At the end of each battle you will earn new items which you place in your pack (deck) of availble items to use during the game.

Play consists of building farms and planting crops. Farms are placed on the board so when players land on them they pay you a toll. Crops are placed adjacent to farms in the center of the board to increase a farms value. In the center of the board you try to control the most territory by placing crops. If a conflict arises betweet two farmers a slot machine mini game is played to determine who will control the territory.

There are all sorts of special squares to land on and Items to collect and use. From tornados and fires to player and crop bonuses the game play is constantly changing.

You draw up to six items every turn which keeps the play fast paced. The game is also designed so you always feel like each turn matters and no one can run away with the game.
