Student Designed Board Game Headed Towards Publication
January 13, 2017
Three students from Bradley's Interactive Media department have started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their new board game set to be published by Ape Games.
Game Design majors Zachary Abbott (Park Forest, IL - Rich East High School), Arwen Boyer (Morton, IL - Morton High School), and Joshua Estill (Miami, Florida - Felix Varela Senior High School) designed the game as part of a class project their sophomore year. Now juniors, their game caught the attention of APE Games.
They are hoping to raise $16,000 through their Kickstarter campaign to get the game produced. The campaign can be found at http://kck.st/2jA27g5 and they are already halfway to their goal.
Reviewers say the game "Plays fast, looks good without being kiddy, rules are easy, setup is almost instant....This would be a great casual game for on the go or/and for kids. Great plus for me is the female hunter character, we need more girl heroes."
A video preview of the game is available at https://youtu.be/vFU8v-84ad
