Mob Sitters is in Production! 

It’s been a long road but I’m excited to say Mob Sitters is finally with the Manufacturer. 

There are a few changes from what I’d planned when we were going to fund it via Kickstarter. Firstly, only the core game is being produced, I hope to release the Heavy Mob expansion later down the line when we see demand for it. The core game will be for six players rather than the eight we had mentioned on Kickstarter, but the good news is the price will be only £20, which is cheaper than we had stated on Kickstarter. 

I’m hoping to take pre-orders in August with fulfilment in September, I’ll confirm the details next month. 

Mob Sitters on Tabletop Simulator 

For those of you that can’t wait for Mob Sitters or you would like a game to play online with friends, Liam has put Mob Sitters on Tabletop Simulator (TTS).

We’ve made Mob Sitters available for free on TTS, but it you don’t already own a copy you will need to buy Tabletop Simulator from the Steam store.

Wiz Up The Wall - Free Print and Play Game

We’ve been playtesting Wiz Up the Wall and due to the Covid lockdown we decided to make it available as a free print and play. To be honest it’s not fully developed yet, but I just wanted to put something out for people during the lockdown. I hope to release it as card game at some point in the future. However, it does need some work before it will be ready as a product that I’d be happy to sell. 

How UK Lockdown has affected us?

The lockdown has obviously seriously impeded our ability to play test and develop games, but we have put some of the games we’re working on, up on Tabletop Simulator so that we can play test them. It has been good to do it, but it does feel a little tricky for us, mainly because our games tend to rely on fun and social interaction between players. As I’m sure we are all well aware now, having a conversation over Zoom or Skype doesn’t come close to the feeling and fun you can have face to face. 

Behind the Curtain 

 

Thankfully the lockdown in the UK is gradually starting to ease, but to be honest it has felt a little like the Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day”. I thought I’d list some of the things we’ve achieved in the last three months, and to be honest by “we” I mainly mean Liam, but don’t tell him that 😉. Here’s what we’ve been up to: 

  • Created and launched our brand-new website and online store. 

  • Created, proofed and sent off all the files to produce Mob Sitters. 

  • Created Tabletop Simulator “Mods” for Mob Sitters and a few other games we’re play testing. 

  • Created sample 3D tiles for a game we’ve recently signed. 

  • Created a solo Print and play game, which I hope to have up on our website shortly.

  • Designed 3 new game play variants for Wiz Up the Wall. 

  • Made contact with some new artists to discuss forthcoming projects. 

That's all for this month, I look forward to sending out the next newsletter which will hopefully be an announcement for pre-orders of Mob Sitters finally!
