Yep! In fact, we JUST got the prints today! I’ll be putting up the physical sale option this week.
Email me with the address at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I confirmed the address, I sent it. If it's domestic I'll get you another one out the door.
It will cover most of your basic needs. The only thing we find it's not great at is referencing monster powers. It has a limited list of those, and mostly exists to show how the monster building system works. But aside from that, it's got all the basic rules, character creation stuff, and everything you need to reference at the table. (The monster powers just take up an ENORMOUS amount of space, so I didn't want to replicate them and double the page count.)
It’s email@example.com. I’m a bit behind, sorry.
My STRONG recommendation for Australia is check out a reshipping service. They’ll give you a US address I can ship to, then they do a massive combined shipment for a lot of people to Australia. It saves a lot of money.
Actually that’s a good question! Drop me an email with a) your new address and b) the day you expect to move and I will coordinate.
Right now I’m waiting on a truck with all my stuff. So I don’t know when I’ll be doing shipments.
No worries! Drop me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check. But know it’s gonna be SUPER slow, because I’m moving cross-country this weekend and I have limited time and internet access.
Sorry, we’re preparing for a big move, so we’re a little behind on shipments. Yours is PROBABLY in the batch we’re sending this week. I’ll check soon, but I’m knee deep in moving stuff so I haven’t been able to check.
We’re literally packing shipments to send out on Monday right now! So if you ordered one, expect it as soon as the post office can get it to you.
if you’re international, I’ve still got research to do.
We plan to! We’ll be distributing copies through IndiePressRevolution if that’s convenient in your country. Otherwise we can distribute directly but that may be slightly more complicated.
It is being printed! We're in the process now, but if you've seen the inside, you'll know the colors are a huge part of it. So the proofing process has been WAY more complicated than I expected initially. Also, it's troublesome because COVID-19, so shipping and even just printing is tough. But, we are absolutely going to be printing it (we've already paid for half the cost up front, so we're committed.) It's just a question of when we get final proofs worthy of the game.
The print version is going to look AMAZING. The #iHunt logo on the front cover is going to be in stamped gold foil. It's gonna be tight.
TBH? I think maybe the best way to go about it would be a sort of "dummy" product that acts as a folder. With its own name and header image. Clicking it would take you inside
I think I will try the column idea for now. Do you know if it extends to smaller format screens? I imagine it doesn't.
We currently have some physical games, some novels, and we're planning on some digital games in the future. As it stands, we've got a fairly big chunk of things to sort through if someone goes to our publisher page. We also have a lot of small products that all fit in a similar series despite being different types of products.
Maybe it'd be nice if we could do custom categories on our publisher pages? So when someone goes to the publisher page, they would see "Novels," "Tabletop Games," or "Series Name" instead of a huge one-column list of unrelated products.
Olivia, she/her. I've made games for a long while now. I've got a number of indie games out there, and I've written a few million words for other companies. The vast majority of my words in print came from the World of Darkness series of games, but I also did words for Leverage, Marvel Heroic, Dragon Age, Shadowrun, and other things. My wife and I collaborate on all our games. You can find a number of them here on itch.
I also write novels, which are conveniently also on itch. The current game I'm working on is called #iHunt, and it's based on my biggest series of novels. It's about millennials hunting monsters in the gig economy. It's economic horror, where eviction is scarier than any vampire.
I'm based out of Tokyo. My normal day job is as a narrative designer and writer for video game companies, but as of right now I'm freelancing full-time.
