Doomtown Update: Bigger and Better (Just Not Yet)

Ace_in_the_Hole_-_JonathanMoore_1_There are several factors involved in the planning and launching of a successful Kickstarter. Having been on that rollercoaster more than a few times already, we speak from experience.

There may be issues regarding shipping, timing concerns, or sometimes little unforeseen things you hadn’t even considered that pop up right when you’re actually putting the campaign together (“…wait, what if we…? Oh, now THAT would be awesome!”).

One of the issues we’re working on right now involves some brand new possibilities with our shipping partners, and thus we need a little more time to look into things and consider a few options. We’ve got players all over the world, and we want to make sure they can all enjoy the many awesome things we have in store.

We also recently found out our friends over at CoolMiniOrNot are launching their new Song of Ice and Fire miniatures game right in the middle of our proposed project. Winter is coming, and we certainly don’t want to risk getting frostbite! 😉

Finally, we’re really excited about another new idea that came up while we were addressing all this other stuff and we need a little more time to develop it. We think our long-time Doomtown players will definitely appreciate it if we can pull it all together.

We’ll post more here when we can and as always, thanks for your continued support, amigas y amigos!

Glowing Reviews for Fear Agent™ and The Goon™

KS_Cover_DoubleThey like us! They really like us!

While our Kickstarters for Fear Agent™ and The Goon™ successfully wrapped just two weeks ago, both games have already been reviewed over on rpg.net and we couldn’t be happier.

Resident rpg.net reviewer Cedric Chin gives Fear Agent™ and The Goon™ high marks while also offering concise overviews of the contents of each core rulebook. Of Fear Agent™, Chin writes: “Fear Agent™ is not just a Savage Worlds supplement for Fear Agent™ fans, but can also be used for generic science fiction roleplaying.” And as for The Goon™ plot point campaign: “Overall, this is a rolicking unique supernatural adventure any offbeat gangland wannabe hood would enjoy, even one unfamiliar with The Goon™ comics!”

We don’t want to spoil too much more, so pop over to rpg.net to check out these reviews for yourself.
