Prepare for an adventure of high piracy in Dead Man’s Doubloons, a simultaneous action selection game: attack, pillage, & board rivals, racing to endless riches on the mysterious isle!
Dead Man's Doubloons is a new action-packed board game for 2 to 5 unscrupulous scalawags, playable in 30-45 minutes. The game includes 5 custom shaped plastic ships and 5 transparent acrylic ghost ships!
Sinking enemy vessels is central to most pirate-themed games, but in Dead Man’s Doubloons it doesn’t end there!
While attackers gain some notoriety for the deed, sunken vessels become ghost ships, endlessly haunting the waters in which they met their demise.
Players maintain control of their ghost ships, and they can even still win the game, however that will not be an easy task as their treasure is cursed and worth far less.
If a ghost ship player can acquire and return enough Doubloons to the island, they reform their vessel and resurrect their crew, putting them squarely back in the race to emerge victorious!
Many other treasures await you in Dead Man's Doubloons!
Recruit heroes, manage a kingdom, adventure with friends! The GOLD STANDARD in RPG Management Simulation games goes multiplayer!
Sim Hero Online is a "simulation" type game with minimal graphics. The heart of the gameplay revolves around managing your kingdom and heroes. You'll need to decide which heroes to hire, utilize, upgrade - and which ones to let go. Then, you'll form parties of heroes to tackle your kingdom's available adventures and also decide which heroes to send on multiplayer EPIC adventures.
The core gameplay is a hybrid between a typical sports management sim (ie: Football Manager, Out of the Park Baseball, Goal Line Blitz) and an old-school RPG (ie: Final Fantasy 1, Ultima, Pool of Radiance). Like many sports sims, you are focused on management and strategy, rather than moment-to-moment action. You'll make decisions on which heroes to risk in adventures, pursue jobs and more.
In all cases, the game plays on all modern browsers and everyone is playing cooperatively in the same world.
We're beyond excited to announce we have launched Avoid the Void! You may remember we attempted to Kickstarter this game earlier in the year. While we came in shy of our goal, the game was simply too good to let it end there. With over 100 backers, we persisted, we found another way, and now we're proud to announce the full release of Avoid the Void!
To celebrate this release, we're teaming up with our great friends at The Game Crafter and running a Crowd Sale - better than a Kickstarter campaign, anyone who "backs" us during this week will get their game shipped to them within a couple weeks, at a substantially reduced price from retail!!
Starting today you can place your order for Avoid the Void! Visit the Crowd Sale page to reserve your copy, and then you can keep checking back during the week to see how much your price has gone down! Crowd Sales are a lot of fun, because the more copies of Avoid the Void are bought during the week, the cheaper it is for everyone! If at least one person buys Avoid the Void, the price already goes down by more than 10% from its retail price of $44.99. And the prices get better and better for each 10 copies purchased. If 100 people bought one copy of Avoid the Void each, the price would drop 35%, to under $30!
There's even more great news about the sale...
The Game Crafter ships internationally, so non-US residents can get the game shipped directly to them!
You can bundle your Avoid the Void order in the Crowd Sale with the previously crowdfunded Geek Fever Games title Awesome Bots! Anyone who gets Awesome Bots will see a discount of at least 20%, getting the $24.99 game for $19.99 or less!
You won't see pricing this good again! Avoid the Void will be available after the crowd sale at its standard retail price, but this is the time to get it!
So please, share this news with everyone - you'll pay less if more people buy it! And of course, you can buy multiple copies yourself, if you're so inclined!
We've been incredibly busy over the past few months! Five cons, six design contest submissions (two of which have progressed to the second round of judging!), and several exciting new releases - we can't slow down!!
Now you can grab a copy of Mars vs. Earth for just $34.99!
Are you ready for some football? Are you ready for a word game? Let's combine the two with our brand new game, Go Long!
Try to win this game of football by building words out of letter cards representing players on your team. The defense and offense build words at the same time, and the offense advances the ball down the field based on how much better their word is. The defense also gets to intercept the ball, if they can guess how the offense will play. So huddle up, map out your plays, and… go long!
Help us out! We have submitted this game to a design contest - if you are a member of The Game Crafter, please consider voting for us here. Thanks!
a game of political connections
How would you connect "PRESIDENT" and "SCANDAL"? Maybe you'd think of "WATERGATE." Or maybe "NIXON." Or "RESIGN." Or even "IMPEACH." It's up to you. But you're also trying to make a connection with the other people playing. Can you get them to think the same as you? Can you think the same as them? The better you can connect, the better you'll do.
