Undead Viking

"I appreciate games that make me think and keep me on my toes, and Guild Masters does that very very well."

Little Metal Dog Show

"A definite recommendation. Absolutely awesome."

Bearded Rogue

"I personally will be backing this one. I think it's a great medium weight Euro."

Club Fantasci

Preview by Maurice Fitzgerald

"The game’s simplicity belies its deceptive but substantial depth that doesn’t reveal itself at first glance. It is a very easy game to pick up, and the shifting setup and asymmetric player powers means more time exploring than learning."

Pretty Sneaky Sis

Preview by Joe Babbitt

"From a design standpoint, there is a lot to love about Guild Masters. [...] Decisions are simple without being automatic and have complex and satisfying results. [...] Guild Masters is a very clean and well executed design."

Geek Dad

Preview by Jonathan Liu

"I found myself really enjoying the theme of Guild Masters, too: it was fun to think about outfitting heroes for their quest and being a regular person in a fantasy world instead of one of its heroes."

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!
