I spent the run-up to Christmas working on a boxed escape room game to hand out at the office Christmas party. It went down well, considering the state had just come out of a long lockdown.
However in putting that together, I ran out of time to complete the kids Christmas present game this year. Therefore, the prototype of Project-FND is on back the shelf until I get some more free time: It’s all the cutting that takes ages. The craft cutter doesn’t handle 5mm foam-core, sadly.
I want to take a moment to recommend the Asset Forge on itch.io for anyone looking to put some quick designs together for mechanical stuff like these spaceships and their hardpoints. No, I’m not getting royalties – it’s just a good tool that I want to recommend.
The first free PNP release, codename PROJECT-R is one step closer: Licensed the art and now need to tidy up the files and write assembly instructions.
PROJECT-R is a dexterity game of medieval battlefields. We created this because we love the grand battlefield theme, but don’t want to get tied up with rules, dice, range rulers, and all that.
Fair warning; in order to print and play this title, you’re going to need a spare brick-tower game (e.g. Jenga or a copy) and printable sticker paper. Two full-page A4 labels are needed – or use normal paper and glue.
