Update #10

Oh My God! We've Been Funded.


Wow. Thank you all—so very very much. Thank you for believing in us and our game and for helping make it a reality. Thank you for financial support and for helping spread the word.

You have my pledge we'll bring you the best possible version of Oh My God! There's An Axe In My Head we can, as soon as we can. I'll post updates here as news develops, print dates finalize, and where I'll be bringing the game to demo, if you want to play it, or say hello.

I'll also endeavor to honor your support by continuing to create the best, most original, fun, and thoughtful games I can. Next year's release is already in the works, I've got tons of notes and the beginnings of a prototype. There'll be updates about that here, and at (hint: we'll  be looking for lots of playtesters by winter, and OMGTAAIMH backers will get the first opportunity)

Thanks again folks. you rock. So damn much.
