I wanted to talk about the group that is making this happen. The Game Crafter.
The Game Crafter (TGC) is the world’s first web-to-print game publishing company and offers a print on demand game publishing service. TGC empowers game designers around the world by allowing them to make a board game, card game, and custom playing cards through a website. Using the latest web technology, TGC developed a website platform that simplifies the design, manufacturing, and retail processes related to tabletop games.
I have used their site to get my very first blank card to prototype with, then when i had some art, I used them to print some example runs, (which are available at reward levels on the campaign). Finally when this project is fully funded, they will be printing the final copy of the game and we’re work hard to get them to you by Christmas.
I wanted to highlight them here in the blog because they do so much for the community. Their website is a dream come true for indie game developers. They whole system is set up to make it as easy as possible to develop an idea from hand written postcards to a Fully funded project on Kickstarter. I will always be grateful for their work, and love that JT Smith, Tavis Parker, and Jamie Vrbsky are constantly around in the chat room with a wealth of advice and support.
If you haven’t had the chance to share or support the Kickstarter it is live until Nov 19th http://kck.st/15VwjUM
