||Just Desserts is at the Printer!
beta edition of Just
Desserts is now being printed! I'm sure my regular readers
have long been wondering just which desserts will be included
in this all-desserts card game, so here now is a complete chart

As you can see, the art for the Beta edition will be simple
black and white line drawings, some of which are really just
sketches... after much discussion, we've decided the final art
will be colorized line drawings, based on these but made much
better-looking by Alison
(akin to her work on the Artifact art for both Chrononauts
games.) The photograph-based design, seen in the prototype cards
shown on the What's
on the Stove? page, has been abandoned.
It will take many months (perhaps even as much as year) to
prepare all the full-color artwork that the final version of
this game will require. Before we invest the time and energy
needed in doing that, we want to make sure the gameplay is really
good enough to justify it. Hence, we're making a limited edition
test run, of 500 copies, to really shake out the design. We plan
for this to be available in time for Origins,
and we hope to begin accepting pre-orders soon.
If the Beta edition feedback is good, we may try to have the
final version of the game ready in time for next year's GTS....
but only if we can turn Alison into an art machine!
all for now. Have a Great Week!
PS: Congrats to Craig
and Gretchen on the birth of their second child! Welcome to the
wanted to write you in response to your post on the
28th and the
week before about your rationale for not sending your product
to be produced in China. I wanted to commend you on what had
to be a difficult decision. I'm currently living in WV and have
seen first hand chemical plants, manufacturing plants, and the
like all close up shop to move to China or Mexico and have witnessed
the crippling effect it has on small-town economies. I moved
back to this state because my hippy ideals wanted a place where
I could afford to buy some land and grow some of my own food
and hopefully slowly work my way off the grid as much as I can
and when I read your post about being willing to postpone short-term
financial gain for your higher ideals it really moved me... I
just wanted to let you know that I for one and many others really
have a great deal of admiration for you being willing to not
cave into the awful globalized economic structure built on virtually
slave labor. Keep fighting the good fight and producing some
killer games!" -- email from Ryan F.
