In part one of Start Your Own Indie Tabletop Game Business I covered some basic topics of game ideas, game design, game development, and whether to self publish or find a publisher. I took you through my own simple process of how I went about doing things as I worked on my first game; Mint Tin Treasure Hunter.
If you enjoy playing tabletop games you likely had thoughts about designing and making your own board game. For me it started with having an idea for a quick and easy card game. As I fleshed out the game mechanics and theme my mind started to think about getting it made and then published. That led me to think about starting my own indie tabletop game business.
I wanted to take a moment and touch base with the friends and family who have been following our progress in this hobby venture Nancy and I have undertaken.
Currently we have one game, Mint Tin Treasure Hunter, that has been prototyped and we think it looks great. We have one game, Oh Poo, that is currently going through the graphic design process, and we hope to have that sent off for prototyping by mid February. Another game, The Lost City of K’aak’ Tuucha, which will be our first game played using a board game, is still having art created for it.
Just wanted to share a little news today. Our first game, Mint Tin Treasure Hunter, has just had all of the layouts uploaded to The Game Crafter and is in the process of having the first live pre-pro printed.
I was a little eager to see the pre-pro, so paid for expedited manufacturing. It should arrive in about 4-5 business days if all goes as planned.
This is an exciting time!
Thanks for reading!
While we have a few games in production at the moment, one of them, Mint Tin Treasure Hunter, is getting some advanced touches on it graphic layout.
I wanted to take a quick moment and share a few images of what is being cooked up. HUGE kudos to Eric Swanson, who is handling all the graphic layout work for this project. When I am able to post a link for a website or contact info for Eric, I will do so.
