THANKS FOR HELPING US MAKE THE MEN OF GAME DEVELOPMENT A REALITY FOR 2016!

Did you miss out on the Kickstarter? While the bonuses are exclusive to backers, you can still pre-order the calendar at the No Goblin Store.

----

For the last two years, the Men of Game Development project has assembled a tasteful collection of hunky development talent. For the 2016 calendar, all rules are off. 

In 2016, the Men of Game Development go XTREME.

The 2015 calendar was seen through dozens of game development offices around the world. You can make 2016 even bigger.

This year, all calendars are MAGNUM SIZE by default. That means they're 12x12 inch pages, full gloss, on the heaviest paper stock that our printers can manage without complaining.

To make things XTREME, we're including a new feature for 2016: the first MEN OF GAME DEVELOPMENT CENTERFOLD. This is a 12x24 poster that's perfect for any bedroom, art gallery, or office bathroom.

That's not all though: if you back the Kickstarter, you'll get KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE CALENDAR STICKERS included with your calendar. Finally, you'll be able to mark off important events like birthdays, weddings, divorces, launch dates, cert submission dates, cert resubmission dates, and frantic cert waiver dates.

We ship all calendars in thick and rigid mailers to make sure no bending or creasing occurs to the hot and hairy contents inside.

EXTRA BONUS! Because we've reached 100 calendar backers, we'll also be including a Men of Game Development fridge magnet calendar with every physical calendar!

The 2016 Man Roster may be the most exciting yet! It's an eclectic mix of fan favorites, new faces, and also Dave Lang.

 
 

This is our fully revealed Men of Game Dev 2016 line up! 

In any other year, we'd include a single premium item like a USB key or a book. For Men of Game Development 2016, we're creating a full collection of PREMIUM MAN ITEMS for the exact same price.

For starters, this includes:

  • MOUSEPAD/PHYSICAL MAN SURFACE: The number one request from Men of Game Development fans has been more tactile ways of interacting with the men. With the PHYSICAL MAN SURFACE included in each bundle, you can now rub your mouse on them as part of your every day computer routine.
  • NOTEPAD: Nothing says professional decorum or creative inspiration like a notebook with a Man of Game Development on the front.
  • 4 DRINK COZIES: The best piece of merch we've ever made as a company were our No Goblin Drink Cozies. If you back the premium bundle, we'll include a set of FOUR DRINK COZIES emblazoned with a man of game development. Finally, the Men of Game Development in the palm of your hand!
  • STRETCH GOAL REACHED: RALLY TOWELS! Since we reached 50 bundle backers, we'll be adding a tastefully-patterned Rally Towel into the premium bundle.
Like this, but with a half-naked man instead of the No Goblin mascot!

But that's just the beginning....

If the Men of Game Development Kickstarter exceeds its goals, we want to include more items:

STRETCH GOAL REACHED! For calendar backers, we're including a fridge magnet calendar for hitting 100 calendar backers! Now you can have a true multi-room man experience for no additional cost!

For the bundle, we have a whole stack of additions as the backers join the party:

  • STRETCH GOAL REACHED - RALLY TOWELS! Since we reached 50 premium backers, we'll be adding a tastefully-patterned Rally Towel into the premium bundle.
  • STICKY BOOK! If we reach 150 premium backers, we'll also add in a sticky book to complement your notebook! Think of this as a notebook dedicated to post-it notes and flag stickers. Like the Notebook, it'll also have a tasteful Men of Game Development image on the cover.
  • MORE! As our premium backer count increases, so does the number of items we can include in the bundle. Stay tuned!

Thanks for checking out the MEN OF GAME DEVELOPMENT 2016 XTREME EDITION Kickstarter page! With your help, we can make this the biggest, baddest, and most XTREME Men of Game Development ever!

Risks and challenges

This is our third year running the Men of Game Development calendar, and our second Kickstarter dedicated to Game Development Men.

While we have our suppliers, shippers, and other logistical processes all shaken out by now, the one big thing that can impact us is the man factor - the men have to give us their photos on time.

Last year we had some man delays that ate into our production buffer time, so this year we have enlisted Glenda Morgan as our Kickstarter point person and Man Wrangler. That's her official title with No Goblin. No man will dare to not provide Glenda with their pictures on time.
