Risks and challenges
We take publishing seriously, and are fully aware of the attentive work required to produce and fulfill a great game.
We set up Guild Masters for success from the get go. Publishing our first game Chaosmos taught us a ton, and we’ve designed Guild Masters with manufacturing in mind from the beginning. We have a strong relationship with our manufacturer Panda GM, and they’ve guaranteed our production scheduling and shipping times. On the creative side, game design and development are nearly complete thanks to our extensive playtesting, and the art direction is running smoothly.
As with any project, unforeseen issues may occur. We will tackle any issues as soon as they come up, and communicate clearly and frequently with backers to keep you informed.
We are confident we will deliver a high quality product that we’re proud of and you love!
