Endorsement from Eric Zimmerman

What a thrilling first day! We couldn't be more excited: 10% of our goal met within the first 24 hours! Thanks so much to our backers. The positive response we've been getting about MERIWETHER is just inspiring. We couldn't be more grateful. 

We're proud to announce that our first update features none other than one of the most celebrated game designers working today: Eric Zimmerman. Eric's the co-author of THE textbook on game design, RULES OF PLAY, and is a founding professor of the NYU Game Center. 2012 has been a banner year even by Eric's standards. INTERFERENCE, his museum-installation-sized game collaboration with Nathalie Pozzi, was exhibited in Pairs and Dublin this year, and won IndieCade's Interaction Award. Also at IndieCade, Eric and John Sharp's ARMADA D6 won the 2012 award for Game Design, the festival's biggest prize. 

Eric has collaborated with Josh and several MERIWETHER team members on a number of projects over the years and has been following development on MERIWETHER since the beginning, so we're really stoked to share the nice things he has to say about the game. Have a look!
