Roswell 51: Mid February Update

February 17th, 2017

A quick update on the status of the next exciting release in our Shuffling Horror line – Roswell 51! I am currently waiting for the printhouse to upload the final online file for my review/approval; this single file stands between us and our printed proofs. Here’s our remaining steps to production:

1. Review/approve the online proofs (electronic proofs).
2. Review/approve the printed proofs (physical proofs).
3. Greenlight the game into production.

The first two steps rely on the printer’s timeline, the third step is the manufacturer’s timeline. At this point in the project, we are subject to their schedules. For more info on our production status, I have been posting all backer updates on our Roswell 51 project page. I will continue to post our interim updates there.

No stopping now ’til we got game!

Roswell 51: December Update

December 19th, 2016

Greeting Roswellians!

As detailed in the last update, we must make some revisions to our proofs and submit them for a second round of approvals. We are currently assessing how to address our color tone issues and hope to have this resolved and new proofs submitted by the end of this month (December). This will then give us a January… (click here to read the rest of this article and visit our production update page).

Roswell 51-We’re Making A UFO (Donation)

July 13th, 2016

Greetings Roswellians!

Less than 3 days to go on our amazing Roswell 51 Kickstarter campaign – please keep spreading the word!

Now, some really cool news… Not only are we making a super fun game, but we will also be contributing to the making of an actual UFO – in Roswell! What?!? Yes… It’s all true!

When the game is released this fall, we will be donating twelve Roswell 51 games to the Roswell UFO Museum to help them raise funds for the replacement of their iconic UFO. Earlier this year, the UFO had blown off the building in a winter storm and was then stolen and destroyed. Not unlike the 1947 incident, the wreckage was found along the desert highway outside of Roswell.

Blog-R51-UFO-Museum

I spoke to the Director of the museum and he was excited by this offer. The donated games will be available in the museum’s gift shop and the proceeds will go towards the new UFO sculpture for the building. The International UFO Museum and Research Center is a non-profit organization (501c3). More information on the museum can be found here. The full story of the UFO theft from the Albuquerque Journal is found here.

The museum sure looks like such a fun and nostalgic place to visit (and previously the town’s movie theatre, too). Each year they run the Roswell UFO Festival in July, to coordinate with the “Incident At Roswell” anniversary. Wish I lived closer!

Really glad we’re able to help out in this small way – thanks to our amazing backers!

Now, tell your friends to…

Roswell 51-Stretch Goal #2 Unlocked

July 8th, 2016

Great news, Roswellians!

Our Roswell 51 Kickstarter hit its 10k mark and unlocked its second stretch goal! All thanks to those of you who backed our funky sci-fi outer space invasion game. To celebrate, we’re going to add a little popcorn to go along with our movie!

Well… not real popcorn…

Popcorn is a really cool bonus card. During the game, when this card “pops up”, it will give an immediate bonus to either the Survivors or the Aliens (depending on who causes it to appear). There’s nothing like this in the deck – and now there will be because of the support of our backers.

Blog-R51-Popcorn-Bonus

What is shown above is the card prototype; the creepy cool zombie hands reaching for the popcorn is drawn by Steve Blickenstaff. We will be including two types of popcorn in the game box: one in the Roswell 51 style and one in Pittsburgh 68 style. Each card has the appropriate back for use in that deck. We wanted to make sure that if you like the flavor it adds to one game, that you could add it to the other.

For those who haven’t backed yet, there’s still time to become a Roswellian!

Happy Birthday, Roswellians!

July 5th, 2016

Greetings Roswellians!

On our about this date in 1947, the aliens crash-landed in Roswell, NM – the rest is history. Our Roswell 51 kickstarter is steadily moving forward and I just want to say thank you to everyone who has become a backer and those who have helped to spread the word about our indy game efforts. Roswell 51 has eleven days to go, and I’m sure we are going to obliterate our next stretch goal really soon. Congrats!

“Are your neighbors acting strange? Maybe their minds were taken over by outer space aliens!?!”
