[19:31] <+PsychicCactusChrisDean> GREETINGS READERS! I am Christopher Dean (you can call me Chris), a large part of Psychic Cactus Games (me and some freelance artists and a few volunteers).
[19:32] <+PsychicCactusChrisDean> I am here to talk about IS IT A PLANE!?, a comic book roleplaying game on Kickstarter. You create a comic book as you play, not just playing characters, but DRAWING their actions. This is rapid doodling; there is no time for artistic skill.
[19:33] <+PsychicCactusChrisDean> It’s a game of communication and interpretation. The Editor (the GM) has to interpret your drawings in order to decide what happens next. (And there are other mechanics around this that I shall explain.)

[19:31] <+Eloy-3EG> Hey all! I’me Eloy Lasanta, owner of Third Eye Games, and New Agenda Publishing (though that’s a story for another time)
[19:31] <+Eloy-3EG> Today I’m here to discuss my newest game currently on kickstarter called Part-Time Gods Second Edition
[19:31] <+Eloy-3EG> (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eloylasanta/part-time-gods-second-edition-tabletop-rpg/)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eloylasanta/part-time-gods-second-edition-tabletop-rpg/
[19:32] <+Eloy-3EG> In this game, you explore what it means to be human and what it means to be divine. You have to balance the two sides of your life. You’re a god, but being a god doesn’t pay the bills.
[19:33] <+Eloy-3EG> Neither does it alleviate all the responsibilities you have, from your family, friends, social groups, your job, or even your worshippers, other gods, etc.
[19:33] <+Eloy-3EG> Part-Time Gods Second Edition is a game about finding what’s important to you as a god and as a person, and making hard choices on what will be given your attention. 🙂
[19:33] <+Eloy-3EG> I think that’s enough rambling.
[19:38] <+THEBOOKOFDARKSECRETS> My name is Matt Bogdan. On FB my name is Matthew A. Bogdan. I have been creating Pathfinder adventures for almost 2 years and…
[19:39] <+THEBOOKOFDARKSECRETS> now want to add D&D 5e to it.
[19:31] <+Zoltan> Well, hello. my name is Zoltan Lečei and I’m a part of The Games Collective, a small game design team from Croatia
[19:33] <+Zoltan> In 2015 we successfully Kickstarted a game called Awaken – a dark fantasy rpg game with Slavic and Mediterranean influences
[19:34] <+Zoltan> In the meantime the game has been translated to Italian, and it’s in a process of preparation for other languages too
[19:34] <+Zoltan> Now we’re back on Kickstarter with a sourcebook called Awaken: The Blood of Salvora – it’s kind of a campaign setting sourcebook for the Awaken
[19:36] <+Zoltan> In the new book, we’re exploring the cities in their details, various nations, new character options, new antagonists, items, various new powers etc.
[19:36] <+Zoltan> And now I’m here to present the game and talk a little more about the game and our work
[19:38] <+TerriCohlene> I’m Terri Cohlene. Children’s book author, and now, Game Designer!
[19:38] <+TerriCohlene> Together, we created, Best Friends Forever! (BFF!)

[08:06] <+AoC_Kristofer> Yes! My Name Is Kristofer Stenskog, and i run a small Game Development Company in sweden. We usualy do Core-loops and Narrative for mobile games as consultants, but we want the company to grow into a boardgame/RPG developer. Mostly because we are serious board & RPG nerds. Right now we have a kickstarter online for our first own RPG, agents of Concordia.
[08:07] <+AoC_Kristofer> The game is a Fantasy / Mystery game about multiverse-travelling agents in the 60’s, with alot of action, adventure and mysticism.
[19:32] <+AaronReed> Great– thanks for the invite and happy to be here. 🙂 So I’ve been a game designer off and on for about fifteen years now, mostly doing indie and digital games. I did a lot of work in the “interactive fiction” world writing text adventures. I wrote what was at one point the longest text adventure ever (no longer true)!
[19:33] <+AaronReed> I’ve also always been a roleplayer, and for the last 5-6 years was working on a PhD on interactive narrative. I started getting really back into indie roleplaying partly as research but also to get away from screeeeens…
[19:33] <+AaronReed> So I’m Kickstarting my first published tabletop game, Archives of the Sky, and it actually just hit its funding goal this morning (woohoo!) So that’s exciting.
[19:34] <+AaronReed> Would love to talk about the game, my weird path through digital games and academia to get here, or anything else folks are curious about. 🙂
