We’re getting ready to start Day 3 at Gen Con, and the fan response has been amazing! We’ve loved meeting many of you who are The Dark Eye Kickstarter backers, fans of our German products, and new fans just learning about us!
We’ve gotten some great compliments on the physical products for The Dark Eye, the demos of Aventuria, and the prototypes for Conan: Rise of Monsters. However, we have to admit that the largest number of what I would call “eyecatch” conversations from random folks walking by have been about Torg. People at Gen Con see that banner and immediately stop to find out more.
We have been running demo sessions on and off the schedule because there are so many people that want to try out our updated version of this classic game. Our demo team even ran a private game with a few invited guests. And everyone wants to know, “When is it coming?”
What we can say for now is that we are currently eyeing early 2017 for the Torg Kickstarter. The rules are in good shape, but we want to make sure we have enough other products ready to go so that we can run a Kickstarter campaign on a grand scale, much like we did with The Dark Eye. That level of product support and turnaround is what we are striving for, because we want to make Torg fans happy!
Meanwhile, here’s a picture of Markus Plötz and Shane Hensley on the road to Gen Con, looking over the current drafts of the Torg rules…
