Hello from Deep Water Games! We have so much to share with you today, let’s get to it.
First thing’s first, Herbalism is starting to arrive to backers! The games shipped out from our warehouse earlier this week, and are already gracing people’s tables. That’s right, within a month of our first Kickstarter ending, we’re already fulfilling. Yes, before you ask, we are crazy.
Next up, we’re excited to announce that we have signed and are developing Aaron Andrew Wilson’s Sovereign Skies! Set for an Early 2019 release, this game is perfect for the highly strategic gamer with only an hour to spare.
“On the edge of space, a system of colonized planets strives to form a new democracy. Occupy colonies and recruit politicians to gain influence and power for your faction in this epic rondel strategy game that plays in under an hour!”
The game is still in development but right now it supports 2-4 players, ages 10 & up, and has a targeted play time of 45 minutes. We are delighted to be working with Aaron on this fantastic title. Make sure you’re subscribed to our mailing list, Twitter, Facebook, smoke signals, or Instagram so you don’t miss out as we reveal more information about this game!
Also, if you’re at #UnPub8 this weekend, our developer Ian is there playtesting Sovereign Skies, which features prototype and placeholder art (please don’t sue us!). Swing by his table and give it a play.
There’s so much more that we could tell you all, but for now we will end this newsletter with a reminder that our next Kickstarter, Mystery of the Temples, is launching on Tuesday, March 27th at 11am EST. In addition to Mystery of the Temples, backers will be able to pick up Sorcerer & Stones and Round House, all three great titles from EmperorS4 Games. If you want to be alerted when the Kickstarter goes live, make sure you’re going to our Facebook Launch Event.
Have a happy Friday and a great weekend!
