Making Games and Taking Names: September 2017

HELLO FANS AND FRIENDS OF ATHERIS, 

We've been hard at work the last month and wanted to post some highlights of what we've been up to. We've got big things ahead of us at Atheris Games and we're super excited to share them.

Conventions

We had a booth at MegaCon Tampa last weekend (September 29th to October 1st, 2017).

Unfortunately, the attendance numbers were lower than we thought and thereby so were sales. However, we were able to meet some great fans, show off our games and really interact with gamers on a more one-on-one basis than some larger conventions.

We had a great time at the show and are now looking into becoming a vendor for MegaCon Orlando next year, which is a significantly more established and larger show, which also happens to be super close to home (we're based out of Orlando, FL).

MUTANT CROPS MANUFACTURING

Mutant Crops is fully manufactured and assembled. We're just waiting on the manufacturer to finalize shipping.

It is really excited to know that the game is getting close to being in our backer's hands. We're so proud of the support we received on Kickstarter and are forever grateful for those who put their faith in us.

We don't have any pictures of the production copy yet as our camera broke and we haven't had a chance to fix it as of yet. Though, we've been talking to friends to see if we can borrow their cameras to get some high-quality photos of the game in all of it's beauty.

 

GAME DESIGN/PUBLISHING

We're excited to announce that we have officially signed a strategy game from Don Riddle. Don is a fabulous designer and we're so proud to be publishing this game (currently called Ruins of Mars). It is incredibly different from our current offerings. This is our first medium-weight strategy game (it plays in 90-120 minutes).

Ruins of Mars works around 10 communal cards (9 unique) in five different stacks. Players decide which stack to pick up and thereby which actions they are able to take. They then place one card in the original spot and then one card for each subsequent spot until they are out of actions (mandala style).

We'll be revealing more about the game soon, but suffice it to say that it is great! When Andrew played it for the first time he fell in love with the design and is always excited to get it to the table.

That's all for now!

We're looking forward to seeing what is happening with Atheris next month and sharing it with all of you! Thanks for reading!

UNTIL NEXT TIME, 

THE ATHERIS GAMES TEAM
