The Grand Canyon. Mount Everest. The Great Barrier Reef. You know them as some of the seven natural wonders in the world.

When you see the Men of Game Development for 2017, you'll need to make room for another twelve.

That's right! The Men of Game Development calendar returns for 2017. Help us get these men onto your wall by backing today!

Over the last four years, we've finely honed the production and format of calendars to produce something that's uniquely suited to the manly physiques that game development produces.

All calendars are our trademark MAGNUM SIZE - a full twelve square inches on each side on the heaviest and highest paper stock we can find. Printers hate us, FedEx abhors us, but it's all worth it to do these men justice. 

Not only do you get every single month that 2017 has planned, but we'll also throw in a 12x24 centerfold of one of the finest examples of game developer we could find. It's like getting 13 months for the price of 12!

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!

As well as including US shipping in the backer tier and being in the first batch of calendars shipped, we'll also be including some Kickstarter Exclusive stickers for all calendar backers! These stickers are extremely heavy duty and will even survive on the back of your phone for months on end!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A calendar is great, but you're a discerning backer that needs more Men of Game Development in their life. Thankfully, we have just the thing to help you out - THE PREMIUM BUNDLE.

Every PREMIUM BUNDLE includes the following artistinally sourced weird factory-to-table merchandise:

  • MASTER KEY COLLECTION: At first glance, it looks like an innocent but very cool 16GB USB Master Key. Plug it in, and you open up a cyber portal to the information highway. This particular highway only has one rest stop - the vault containing images of every single man that's been in the last four years of Men of Game Development.

  • MOUSE SURFACE: The rumors are true! If you want the best performing eSports mousing surface, there's only one place to get it - right here!

    Not only will your mousing performance be enhanced, but you'll also get to stare at one of 2017's Men of Game Development whenever you look at your mouse.

  • MEN OF GAME DEVELOPMENT COOL KIDS CLUB ENAMEL PIN: Picture this: you're at GDC, or PAX, or any gaming convention. You want to signal to other Man Afficionados that you appreciate the men in the calendar, but at the same time don't want rando outsiders to know that you paid money to see Dave Lang half naked. 

    The Men of Game Development Cool Kids Club Pin solves this problem. Pin it to your bag or jacket to let other Men of Game Development supporters know that you're a cool person with an impeccably honed gaze.

  • MINI FRIDGE MAGNET CALENDAR: The Refrigerator is considered "the wall of the kitchen". It's the perfect place for a smaller magnet calendar featuring one of 2017's Men of Game Development.

 

Back by popular demand, we're also allowing backers to back the MAN CANVAS. As well as getting everything Men of Game Development, we'll also send you a canvas wrapped print of any man you choose, in the biggest size we can manage for that man (minimum 20x30in).

The Men of Game Development project has grown into one of the most amazing and legitimately hot collection of game development hunks available. Thank you for supporting us so far, and thanks again for checking out the Men of Game Development Kickstarter for 2017. With your help, we can bring a whole new set of men to walls everywhere.

Risks and challenges

This is the fourth year of Men of Game Development calendar. We're getting pretty good at this!

The main changes for us this year are our printers - our original printer was based in China and recently stopped taking international orders. We've already sourced another printer who can print at our ridiculous quality requirements and are all set to ship on our normal timeframe.
