PRESS RELEASE: Pigeonpocalypse live on Kickstarter

PRESS RELEASE: Pigeonpocalypse live on Kickstarter

A unique family card game to launch on Kickstarter
Prague – Czech Republic, 27. 4. 2019 – Pigeonpocalypse is the name of a fun and fast family card game, created by a graduate in Theoretical Physics, Marek Matas. In this game, players help the inhabitants of a city park (pigeon warriors, squirrel renegades, and many others) to fend off violent grannies, dating couples, sleazy businessmen and other visitors who intrude in their precious park.

Pigeonpocalypse offers unique game mechanics composed of bluffing, intricacies and surprise moves, while still being very easy to learn. To raise the funds necessary for the manufacture and launch of the game on the market, the creator has decided to initiate a crowdfunding campaign on the US platform, Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign will be launched on June 4th, with the target funding goal, necessary to bring the game to life, being of 10,000 dollars.

Pigeonpocalypse is suitable for children and adults alike. It is a fast-paced game, with each round taking no longer than 20 minutes to play. “We are launching multiple versions of the game. The basic version consists of 56 cards and is suitable for 2 to 4 players. We’re also launching two extended versions with Kickstarter Exclusive cards. The complete edition is suitable for 2 to 6 players,“ says Marek Matas, creator of the game.

From the initial idea to the final version of the game

The first idea to create a pigeon-themed game struck Marek Matas in May 2018, while waiting for a badminton match with his friend Jacob. He created the first prototype a couple of months later, using traditional playing cards. “I kept play-testing the game with friends and colleagues until they fell in love with the pigeons and squirrels,“ says Marek.

Marek continued to work on the game while studying for his doctorate in Theoretical Physics. The final mechanics of the game were completed at the end of 2018. After frequent testing and positive response from players, Marek Matas asked two very talented creative artists to join the project to assist in building a visual identity of the game.

After a year and a half of development, game testing, and design, it is now time to present Pigeonpocalypse to all game enthusiasts around the world. “I hope the game attracts many fans, who will appreciate its game mechanics, fast gameplay and amazing artwork created specifically for
it,“ says Marek.

PRESS RELEASE: Shiver Me Timbers, an open world pirate game, is live on Kickstarter

PRESS RELEASE: Shiver Me Timbers, an open world pirate game, is live on Kickstarter

Erlangen, Germany. On May 28th, German publisher Weltflucht Verlag launched the Kickstarter campaign for his strategic, open world pirate game “Shiver Me Timbers.” The campaign with a funding goal of 38 thousand Euro will be running for 30 days.

Shiver Me Timbers is the first project by game designer and publisher Michal Vitkovsky. The game is designed for 2 to 4 players ages 14+. Depending on player count and play variant, the game takes between 90 and 180 minutes to play. During the campaign, two pledge levels will be available: the standard pledge contains a copy of the game and any unlocked stretch goals. The deluxe pledge also contains 75 metal coins and four large chests in which players can hide their treasures and their gold.

As a true sandbox game, Shiver Me Timbers offers an open world with multiple paths to victory: players collect victory points by attacking ships at sea, raiding fortresses, trading goods, rescuing lost relatives, raising treasures, fighting sea monsters, fulfilling missions for the governor and more.

The biggest eye catcher of the game are the large modular miniatures: Players start out with a small model which they can upgrade with additional canons, sails or cargo units to increase its strength, its speed or its hull. The game board is fully modular, too. It is set-up strategically by the players after they have chosen their secret victory conditions. Combat against other players and Non Player Characters is decided by fast, tactical card-based duels, granting lots of interaction and minimizing the luck factor of the game.

The artwork and the graphic design of the game were provided by Indonesian artist Unique Litani Soparie. The 3D models were designed by Australian 3D artist Andy Monks from Trick Monkey Studios. Two times Ennie award nominee Tyler Omichinski from Canada completes the international team as Editor-in-Chief for English in-game content.

In 2018, Shiver Me Timbers was successfully introduced on the Berlin Brettspiel Con and the SPIEL in Essen. Independent reviews in German and English are available via the BGG page and on the Facebook page . In addition, Jonathan Cox from JonGetsGames has provided a detailed three person play through which is available on Youtube.

Prior to the launch of the campaign, Weltflucht Verlag is raffling away a free deluxe pledge once per month. To join the raffle, gamers have simply to enter their name on the notification list available at www.weltflucht-verlag.de/shivermetimbers.

On May 28th, the German publisher Weltflucht Verlag will be launching the Kickstarter campaign for the strategic, open world pirate game “Shiver Me Timbers“. The artwork and the graphic design of the game was provided by Indonesian artist Unique Litani Soparie.

The major eye catcher of the game are the large modular miniatures: Players start out with a small model which they can upgrade with additional canons, sails or cargo units to increase its strength, its speed or its hull.

The deluxe pledge will also contain 75 large metal coins, designed as a homage to the “Pieces of Eight” popular among pirates.

Along the rise and fall of empires in Eastern Europa, Invaders From Afar introduces players to two distinct new factions, Clan Albion and Togawa Shogunate, who have deployed their emissaries to scout the land and plan their best strategy for conquest. Both formidable factions possess unique mechs and abilities, bringing fresh challenges, and an entirely updated way for new and seasoned players to experience Scythe: Digital Edition. While Clan Albion craves control of new territories, the Togawa Shogunate are determined to slow their enemy’s progress by placing traps behind them.

Representing falling leaders, players are tasked with restoring honor and leading their faction to power in Europa. A fan-favorite, Scythe: Digital Edition was nominated as a runner-up by Golden Geek Awards in the “2018 Best Board Game App” category.

PRESS RELEASE: Promenade – The Game of Impressionist Art is live on Kickstarter

Become the most prestigious collector of paintings in a 2 to 4 player economic deck-building game filled with impressionist art.

Los Angeles, CA – April 9, 2019 – Sunrise Tornado Game Studio, publisher of the hit game Cat Rescue, has just launched a new strategy game called Promenade that combines gorgeous artwork and a unique take on the deck-building genre.

Promenade brings players into the art world, where they can purchase paintings for their collection to score points. Artwork gains in value based on a simple but intriguing market system, and by placing art in the right museums. The winner will be the one with the most valuable art and prestigious exhibitions in the finest galleries.

“As a painter and great lover of Impressionist works in particular, I wanted to design a game celebrating this style and offering players the chance to collect and speculate in the art world,” says designer Ta-Te Wu.

Promenade features original art and unique deck builder mechanisms in a game that plays in about an hour.

Featuring over 15 gorgeous pieces of original artwork, mostly painted by the designer himself, Promenade is an excellent and approachable game for 2-4 players that plays in under an hour. Early reviewers are already championing Promenade for its innovative and quick play:

“I enjoyed Promenade greatly. The design is clever and engaging. Your turn never comes round quickly enough and there is wonderful suspense as we calculate the game end holdings…Highly recommended.”

Mike Siggins of Ludememike (also know as Sumo)

“If you’re a fan of economic games and deck builders or just love games about paintings, check out Promenade.”

Meeple Lady

“It must be asked. Another deck builder? Does Promenade offer anything new or exciting? Is it worth playing? Yes. Yes and HELL YES!”

Jay Bernardo of Cardboard East

The Kickstarter for Promenade offers a unique $1 pledge level where players get something for their buck. To show appreciation for the support, Sunrise Tornado is including print and play games to all people who agreed to spread the word about Promenade. Cat Sudoku and Kiti-o-Tiki are both fun, quick games that will be made available to all supports at the $1 level.
