At last, five months since the crowdfunding, the illustrated version of While the World Ends is completed. The full color illustrations were made by Claudia Cangini earlier this year.
With this edition I have gone over the text to make it easier to understand, and some rules have been clarified, but not changed.
From a play perspective there is no need to upgrade, but if you want the new version for the pictures you can get it here: While the World Ends Upgrade bundle.
The pictures are mostly complete. Claudia is laying the final touch on them.
And while I’ve been waiting I have done another editing run on the text, hopefully it will be even easier to get into the game now.
I have started revising the text as well while I am waiting for my slot on Claudia’s schedule later in January.
If you have something to say about the current text, or something you had problems with when you have played, now is the time to tell me. Perhaps I can address your issues now that I’m going over the text again. Send me an email or write a response to this post.
And Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for your support.
Thanks for your support, everyone!
Things will be quiet until sometime in January, when Claudia has the time to resume the work on While the World Ends.
Once all the backers have received the updated file with the new art I’ll get started on a print version of the game.
This month I’m trying to raise money to get some nice interior illustrations done by Claudia Cangini for my Sci Fi game While the World Ends. Check out the pretty cover that I’ve gotten already, having the rest of the game in that style would be pretty cool, right?
There was a playtest review of Until Dawn on The Gauntlet Podcast episode 40.
You can find it here.
I’m participating in the Norwegian game-design competition Båtsj2015 with Bunker 13. It is about the people who live in a bunker and their post apocalyptic adventures.
As usual when it comes to this kind of competitions the game could use some more work. But there should be enough of it there that you can form an idea of what playing it would be like. If you are really adventurous you could even take it for a spin, but be prepared to fill in some gaps along the way.
I will probably spend a couple of evenings until X-Mas with polishing and patching up the largest of the holes. So if you have some feedback to share I’d love to have it. The cover is a link, click it to get to a PDF.
