*** UPDATE 11-29-11 ***
Hey everyone. My estimated delivery date turned out to be... ambitious. Because of time spent printing, shipping to Skull Mountain, organization and shipping out, it's going to take up to a month more to get things moving. I should have the PDF ready as soon as I input all the names in the "special thanks" section.
$7000: Sprint goal (because Jared has OCD and likes round numbers)
$6500: An additional, brand-new Parsely game (name/theme TBD)
$5000: $50+ pledges get shirt, buttons and patch. $25 gets patch (images at bottom of page).
$3000: 1-page PDF/print expansion to Z-Ward.
$2000: "Thank you" donations to Kevin MacLeod and Brian Mayer.
Z-Ward: a survival-horror Parsely game.
Your sister was sent away to a mental hospital nine weeks ago. But then something terrible happened...or so she says.
Is she crazy? Or have the End Times finally come to Z-Ward?
What is a Parsely Game?
“Very rarely do new game concepts come along which impress me, but this one stands out as being something truly revolutionary. And yet, like many of the most brilliant ideas, it’s so fiendishly simply that you say, ‘Why hasn’t anybody thought of this before?’” - Andrew Looney, designer of Fluxx
Parsely games are massively multiplayer, live-action text adventure games inspired by Ye Olde Text Parsers from days of yore. Instead of a computer program, a real live human interprets the player's input and responds to those commands, literally and (often) ironically. It's like roleplay-meets-karaoke.
Listen to what the Library Gamer has to say:
The best thing about Parsely games (besides price) is that they can be played anywhere with any number of people! My smallest games were with a friend or two. My largest game ever was with 400+ people at Pax East in Boston.
If you're a nerd, you'll love Parsely games.
Z-Ward will be published in the same format as the other Parsely games (like Action Castle and Pumpkin Town): a z-fold pamphlet printed on 11″ x 17″ high quality, glossy color stock. The kickstarter pledges will cover the art budget, a print run of 1,000 copies and shipping costs.
The rest will go towards therapy.
