Unfortunately, the contract information is still under NDA so I can’t be explicit here, but we’ll share the details with qualified applicants.

Podcast interview on Epic Slant
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 11:57 AM

Over the weekend I got to chat with Adam “Ferrel” Trzonkowski and Chris “Syeric” Coke. We chatted about Storybricks, the tabletop RPGs I’ve supported on Kickstarter, and you’ll hear me totally geek out about the cosmology of the old World of Darkness from White Wolf.

You can listen to the podcast at: http://epicslantpress.com/blog/2013/04/08/game-on-esp-edition-02-brian-green/

A few more thoughts after the jump.

Someone requested this, saying it let them send the posts directly to their mobile phone. Figured it might be of interest to a few other people as well.

I was busy during GDC last week, meeting with people and making contacts. After a week of hard work, I have a tremendous announcement to make: I’m running a new Kickstarter campaign!

But wait! It’s even more exciting than you might possibly imagine. This is the mega-Kickstarter game campaign! I’ve gathered every major developer who has run a game-focused Kickstarter campaign and I’ve gotten them to join force into one, ultimate campaign!
