$3500 in Less Than 10 Hours... But That is Not Where it All Began
Now, this is a good start but we really want to make a difference in people lives. That is what we set out to do and this is what we hope to do with our games.
A little about myself. My name is Zack Edwards and I am the co-designer of Totally Medieval. I have been designing games for 5 years straight now, but my story started back 15 years ago when I was a normal college student playing games like Magic: The Gathering. I had a college, one-page essay to describe a product I wanted to create. So I wrote about a game I wanted to design, then I created it, and then I printed and started selling it. Soon after I was married and my wife said: "put away the game and go get a real job." So I did. It was the best advice because I had so many life experiences that have helped me over the past 5 years.
When I brought back the game 10 years later and started developing it, my son saw me creating Historical Conquest, my LCG card game and he wanted to design his own. So I helped him. He started the rudimentary idea of Totally Medieval and I helped him with the gameplay and design. By Christmas, we had a functioning game. I printed his game and placed it under the Christmas tree. Here is a little YouTube of him as a 5-years old searching for dragons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EefQOve7teA
5-years we have been developing Totally Medieval and it has finally become a reality.
A little over a month ago we debuted the game at a convention near Orlando, FL and the crowds loved it and wanted more, so they started pre-ordering. 60 pre-orders in and we now have a product we just sent to the manufacturers. Those who pre-ordered the game have the privilege of beta-testing the game and they are absolutely loving it.
Each day I'll fill you in on more of the thought processes behind why this game is unique and very important to a certain niche of society, where we are going with it, and the different phases we will be releasing and how it is an ever-evolving game.
I hope you enjoy this adventure as we work to supersede our goal and tell our story.
Thank you for all your support.

P.S. In case you didn't catch it, there was a small typo that we are working out in our campaign. We are currently working on it. The lesson here is that we need to trust those who help us in our work, but always verify what they are writing and get more help in previewing the campaign beforehand. We did have many supporters preview the campaign but they didn't catch this issue so my apologies and we are working it out of the campaign. Thanks again for supporting us in this effort.
