Once upon a time, Laura and I wondered what would happen if we combined the power of Tablets, Smart Phones an e-book readers with the joy of storytelling and board games.
Now the time has come to share the magic that was the result.
Sojourner Tales has been approved as a Kickstarter Project. As our kicking off our kickstarter this Thursday with the opening of the Salt Lake City Comiccon. We'll be running demos of our game in the Exhibit Hall (Booth #216) and even giving away a prototype of the game to one winner of our drawing at the convention -- but you can participate wherever you may be by pledging your support of our game as soon as we open the doors.
You'll want to come early as we're offering special, discounted levels for the first people to pledge. We also have a series of incredible stretch goals after our funding that you will have to see to believe.
At the Gencon Indy Convention in Indianapolis each year, we perform a cross between D&D and Improv Theater called 'Killer Breakfast.' We created this preview of our 'Sojourner Tales' game to run as a 'preview' at each of those shows. You, however, can enjoy our 'sneak-peek' at this video right now.
And please be ready for the Kickstarter launch on September 1st by registering an account on this website and making sure your Kickstarter account is in order! We'll be offering a number of specials for our 'Early Bird' supporters!
It's 8:15 in the evening. I've been in the office since 10 this morning trying to get the revisions of the game prototype finished. I've just completed the last of it ... including this new cover for the game box.
Of course, you will probably find the back cover a bit more illuminating...
We've been working hard on getting these prototypes finished so that we can take them to the upcoming conventions, play them with you and get your feedback on our game. We'll be taking them to the Space City Convention in Houston, Gencon in Indianapolis, ComicCon in Salt Lake City as well as several others. We even have a seminar planned for Gencon where we will show you how you can write your own Sojourner Tales.
Welcome to the Sojourner Tales website! Laura and I have been developing this game now for over a year and are very excited to finally bring it to you ... and ask you to join us in making it a reality.
Over the next few weeks this website will be expanding greatly, not only in previewing for you aspects of the game before we launch the Kickstarter Campaign (and thereby giving you an early look at the game before anyone else) but we will also be showing you how you can write your OWN games for Sojourner Tales ... and hopefully even sell them yourself on this website.
So check back with us often as -- with your help -- we bring into reality the game we always wanted to play.
