WILD - Kickstarter update


First of all, many, MANY thanks to everyone who has backed, shared, and supported the WILD Kickstarter. It's been going so much better than I'd ever dreamed, and we're edging ever closer to the important stretch goal to get Gareth Sleightholme to do the tarot art for the book (and then it's just a little further to get the cards printed too!)

Gareth's artwork will make the game so much better, and he's already been putting extra research into the imagery and symbolism of the traditional tarot cards to incorporate into the new WILD versions.

The Kickstarter has already blown past a few stretch goals, meaning the game is going to grow by another 20pgs, which is great because I woke this morning with a new clarity (if you pardon the pun) of all the extra stuff that needs to be in these pages, which will open the game up to many, many more dreamscape adventures. 

There will also be digital tools which mean you can play online with a digital version of the tarot deck, so you can draw cards, get additional information about the cards (and hopefully audio description of the cards for those who would like it). 

There will be some other cool extras as well including a user manual for the dreamshare device, and an additional adventure of corporate espionage written by Stoo, who has helped bring WILD to life as well as running the playtests.

It's been an exciting week and a bit so far, and another couple of weeks of WILD lay ahead. Hopefully we'll raise the extra funds required for those cards and the art. Fingers crossed. 

If you haven't already, please check out the Kickstarter here - spread the word!

If you want to hear Stoo and me talking about WILD, check out this livestream that aired with The Dark Orb last night. 

Until next time, stay safe.
