So much amazing progress!!

With 14 days still to go and already fully funded, we’ve not only surpassed $80,000 but with more than 700 of you, our community keeps growing!

So far, we've shared two games, Mortals and Fracture, competitive and cooperative, 2 player and 3 player, and we’d like to share more games! Drumroll pleasessseee…

KABOOOM!

Watch your finger, cuz this bomb is going off and the only thing between you, MacGyver, and that spastic bomb is rest of your risk-taking bomb-squad. This take on Russian roulette is just the right amount of luck, a dab of strategy, and a perfect way to make no one feel left out at game night.

Take turns potentially setting off the bomb, careful not to miss the shield(Green) or you'll blow up the brigade.

Bomb Brigade is the first game designed by Holly Gore, Jeff Kowalski and Colin Gallo for the IndieCade East Game Jam. We loved it instantly and the week following IndieCade, bombs were going off in every bar in NYC (only Blink bombs, no fingers harmed in the making of this gif). We couldn’t stop playing, and now we are done hogging this game to ourselves. Want to hear more from the designers, we’ve got you covered, up close and personal in this interview ;)

Now that we've reached our goal, we’re is the wonderful spot of making decisions to make your wildest dreams come true… That’s how this works: Step 1, fund kickstarter (wild dream), Step 2, wildest dreams. We take our Blinks with us everywhere, and we think you should be able to as well.

Blinks are a wonderfully portable game system and since they don’t rely on other devices, think of how much fun they’d be lighting up your next camping trip! While above is only a prototype that serves the right purpose, we’ll design the perfect solution to travel with your Blinks, who knows, we might even be able to make it the packaging it ships in :). (We expect your collection of Blinks will grow over time, so we are taking that into account as well)

More and More Games

Can’t wait for our next game? Us tooo! we’ll be dropping the next game in just a few days. We’ve only got a little time left in the campaign and so much to share, so keep spreading the word.

No Wrong way to Play

This past weekend, Blinks made an appearance at the Liberty Science Center as a part of New Jersey Makers Day! A big thanks to everyone who came out to beat us at our own game! (it is oddly satisfying 😋 )

This girl was a master of her own game, and her sister, built some really neat interactive flowers.

All our Blink love from Jonathan + the Move38 team

Now get stretching’ :)
