Chris Funk Friday and Music & Games!

Posted by Twogether Studios, LLC (Creator)

We've been playtesting Illimat for a while, and in the early days Christopher Funk brought together a gang of friends and fellow musicians to give the game a try. This session includes Jess Wolfe (from Lucius), Yuuki Matthews and Casey Foubert (The Shins, Sufjan Stevens), and music producer Tucker Martine (who may or may not play the saxophone). This is a glimpse into the past, and you'll see how the game has evolved; at this stage the cards have a different back and colors, the Luminaries don't have art yet, and there's a few other details that we've taken in different directions. But it's still a chance to see a bunch of friends diving into Illimat and discussing the alto sax. 

Check out Funk Friday here!

In addition: A week ago, we announced our Music & Games goal. We want you to post a picture of a game you're playing and tell us the game and the music you're listening to, and tag Illimat so we can track it... so "Battleship and the Titanic soundtrack. @Illimat" We're looking for 406 images, and we're 156 away from that goal. So take some time this weekend to play a game, listen to something you love, and post a picture!

Thanks to all of you for supporting Illimat!

      @Therese - you can certainly post again with a different game! And @Hunter, I hope you enjoy Gloom! It certainly is a good October game.

      If we submitted already, should we post again with a different game?

      After watching this video it dawned on me I made my homemade version of the game with the seasons in reverse order! Time to bring back out the spray paint! Great fun watching this video. Also Keith, I bought Gloom today. Why haven't I played this before?! Perfect for October. Thank you sir
