  • Dungeon Petz- Vlaada Chvátil's Sequel to Dungeon Lords

    Dungeon Petz appears to still be at the prototype stage. It was demoed at Gathering of Friends, and is scheduled to be demoed at the UK Games Expo. It is expected to be released at Essen 2011.

    Excuse me for saying this word on the Fort, but sounds absolutely adorable. It seems to have the potential to appeal to that generation of young gamers who grew up playing the various 'take care of your pet' e-games - Neopets, Littlest Pet Shop, Webkinz, and, of course all the DS Petz games. Since my house is littered with all of these, I'll be keeping an eye on this game.

  • Emergence Roleplaying Game Kickstarter

    Emergence: An exciting new fantasy/sci-fi pen & paper RPG

    The game of Emergence takes place on Kython, where multiple genres intermingle to create a world that is exciting, fresh, and yet strikingly familiar. Sections of Kython are nearly indistinguishable from the world in which we live. There are cars, houses, trains, cell phones, and even the Internet. This creates a comfortable starting point to begin your explorations on this foreign planet. However, within this unassuming framework exist all of the elements of science fiction and fantasy that make those genres exciting. Magic, power armor, and advanced weaponry fill the world with new possibilities around every corner.

    As you venture into the world of Kython, the line quickly blurs between science fiction and fantasy. Castles, wooded fortresses, skyscrapers, and industrial complexes cover the landscape, while smartphones, cybernetics, and flying beasts are part of everyday life. The world of Kython boasts a rich diversity of settings to satisfy nearly any game style preference. Whether you prefer gunfights while blasting down the highway at 100 mph, fighting demons in a corrupted ruin, battling savage hordes to defend a village, or storming a skyscraper fortress to defeat an evil necromancer, all of these adventures and more are waiting for you. On Kython, these traditionally separate game styles come together in a way that is inspring, intuitive, and fun. The only limit is your imagination.

  • F:AT Presents the SUMMONER WARS Design-a-Mercenary Contest!!!

    HERE IT IS, folks, the opportunity of a lifetime. Fortress: Ameritrash, in conjunction with Plaid Hat Games is offering you a chance to design a card for their great SUMMONER WARS game. Yes, that's right. Your name in lights. More than that, it is your chance to do F:AT proud and show the world what we're all about- awesomeness in gaming.

    See, Colby Dauch (aka screamingtruth), the game's designer, came to me and said "Barnes, I just have no idea what to do next. We've got these VANGUARDS and FALLEN KINGDOM expansion setscoming out for SUMMONER WARS and I'm drawing a blank on new mercenary cards for future sets. I'm totally out of ideas! I mean, I've got an evil swordsman made of rutabagas and a halfling that attacks with felicitous rejoinders, but I have no idea where to take this thing. Can F:AT come to my rescue?"

    "Yes, Colby. We will do you proud" was my response. So now, I pass the buck on to you, F:AT. But fret not, this is a mercenary gig so there is compensation. Yes, marvelous prizes, worldwide renown, and the accolades of many beautiful women*. Even better, the best submitted unit will actually put into production as part of the SUMMONER WARS world.

    Now, this is a contest so there's rules. And there are as such.

    Design a mercenary unit for SUMMONER WARS. Come up with a physical description of the unit (such as "made of rutabagas") as well as the unit's attack value, life points, summon cost and special ability (such as "attacks with felicitous rejoinders"). Submit this entry along with your name and shipping address via email to Colby at Plaidhatgames.com on or before March 1st.

    But Barnes, say you. I haven't played SUMMONER WARS. Well, that's a tragic mistake. But you can correct it by taking a look at the rulebook over that at Plaid Hat Games' website. It ain't hard. Besides, if you win, you get a couple of copies of the game so you can rectify your lapse in gaming judgment.

    Now, the prizes.

    1st Place: Your design goes into production and you get 5 copies of whatever product it appears in. You also receive 2 copies of each of the Starter Sets and 2 copies of each of the upcoming Vanguards Faction Pack and Fallen Kingdom Faction Pack.

    2nd Place: 1 copy of each of the Starter Sets and 1 copy of the upcoming Vanguards Faction Pack and Fallen Kingdom Faction Pack.

    3rd Place: 1 copy of each of the Starter Sets.

    The future release prizes will be sent upon their release.

    So there it is F:AT. Our first big contest. Do us proud. Make your mark on gaming history. Discuss at leisure below. But you're not going to get any of my ideas.

    Legal crap: By submitting an entry to this contest you are granting all intellectual property and copyrights for your entry to plaidhatgames.com.

  • Fail Harder with Hero Master - Now on Kickstarter

    Found this out of the blue, and can't claim to know anything about the game itself but the aesthetic is mightily appealing. Some of the most fun I've had in gaming - especially with co-op games - comes from times we've done really, really badly. So the idea of making a whole game about that seems gold.
