I am happy to announce that 'The Thorns of War' won the survey and with enough votes that I feel a Kickstarter isn't immediately doomed to failure.
Many thanks to everyone who replied and my commiserations to those who voted for BFF. I am sorry the game will be placed on hiatus for the time being, but I hope the extra time and lessened financial pressure will help make for a better game once I resume work on it.
I've actually been developing a Kickstarter campaign for both projects over the last two weeks, so I will finish the TTOW one today and submit it to be approved by Kickstarter before releasing a draft to be reviewed by anyone who cares to. I'll post more about that here, once the draft copy is ready.
All being well, I plan to launch the campaign on 1st October - that way it can all be over, one way or another, by Halloween. The date is a memorable one and I can enjoy the night with friends afterwards to commiserate or congratulate as needed.
Also, in preparation for the campaign, I'm planning a series of posts for social media that I hope will raise interest in the Kickstarter.
These will take the form of character interviews, quizzes, and posts about the game in general, I would like to invite anyone who has any questions (either for me about the game - world setting, inspiration, art direction etc - or for the characters themselves) to either let me know in the comments here, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
