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.

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…
