  1. Just done a couple of tests of our games on TTS for our Virtual World Tour. We're working with shops around the world to demo games to folks on Tabletop Simulator, then they get a code they can use to buy stuff direct from us (if they like the games, obviously). From that, 40% of the money goes to the store itself, as if they'd sold the game over the counter. We're kicking off on Wednesday in association with Fanboy 3 in Manchester. If you fancy joining in, let me know!
  2. TTS is the better system, I'd say. I'm in the process of building all our games in there for a series of events we're doing over the coming weeks, and it's OK. Some weird idiosyncrasies, but fine.
  3. I wish - ordered direct from Nintendo, mine's not coming until Saturday.
  4. I'd be up for playing either of those, it's been a while for both!
  5. @jonnyalpha Perfect, I think I'm going there at the weekend, will see if I can grab one! Thank you.
  6. Sooo... anyone going to AireCon? I'm officially working, but we don't have a booth - I'll just be playing our new games with anyone who fancies giving them a go. Also @jonnyalpha - where did you get that frame for Pandemic?
  7. Possible, but certainly not financially viable
  8. I was! And there was even a planned third game to complete the trilogy. Sadly (sadly?) I ended up working in the industry proper, so plans for a reboot fell away. I still have an original late 70s prototype of Lost Valley of the Dinosaurs in my collection though, with every card hand drawn on index cards. I should get round to documenting that sometime.
  9. Where is it on sale? I'd love to pick up a copy, but even the download is £54 on the e-shop!
  10. OK, successfully did this (much to my surprise) and everything seems to be working. Now... Considering the only reason I went through the whole process was to play Railfan, where the heck can I find a decent repository of files?
  11. Isn't that just a skin though? I do like that flappy thing, mind.
  12. Thank you! It's really nice seeing folks enjoying something I made Reviews are coming in now and they're generally pretty positive, which is great!
  13. I come on here so infrequently, I missed this - sorry...! Right so... printing. Most printers will have a Minimum Order Quantity, and even that will be frighteningly expensive if you aim only for that MOQ. Price breaks will kick in every thousand units of so, but you don't want to be throwing all your money into this and potentially be left with loads of copies sat in your garage. Like Jonny says, this is a much better idea that most of the CAH ripoffs, but that market is incredibly saturated (and is continuing to see even more competitors added each year). Yes, yours is a family friendly take, but there are already several out there that haven't sold well - only CAH itself does numbers, and even that is starting to decline. Because of that, I don't think there's a publisher out there who'd be willing to take this on, I'm afraid. I think the best option would be just get a few decks printed up yourself - see if you've got any local companies who will do custom playing card decks first. They'll have the facilities to print them up at good quality on decent stock, so you'll at least have a good copy yourself. It won't be as expensive as running off 500+ copies with a manufacturer, but you're still going to be looking at more than you'd pay for your average game in a store. Prototyping, which this essentially is a fancy version of, is expensive
  14. You should've asked, I could've sent you one!
