Why Kickstarter?

I'm sure a lot of you are wondering why Kickstarter? When I first played Welcome To I saw a game that had so much potential to bring people around tables. Bring friends and family together to make memories and share an experience. That's what I'm all about, that's why I love gaming and that's why I started a publishing company.

We want this game to have as much support as possible; giving it the best chance at staying on shelves and subsequently inspiring friends and families to connect over games. There's two reasons to go to Kickstarter. 1) Test the reception to our promotional ideas. We have plans to consistently release promotional material for digital download and in physical form. 2) So Deep Water Games will have the resources to ensure Welcome To makes an impact on game shelves and game tables. going in to 2019!

As an architect in Welcome To..., you want to build the best new neighborhood in town!

Set in the United States of the 1950s, Welcome To... plays like a roll-and-write dice game in which you mark results on a score-sheet...but without dice. Instead you flip cards to create three dynamic options from which everyone chooses one. Race your friends and family to be the first to complete public goals. There's so much to do and so many paths to becoming the best suburban architect in Welcome To...

Because of the communal actions, game play is simultaneous and thus supports large groups of players. With many varying strategies and completely randomized action sets, no two games will feel the same!

Number of players: 1-100 (really!!)

Time required: 25 min

Recommended ages: 10+

Announcing Sovereign Skies!

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!
