A fine website called Panda Gaming Grove has posted a page of current Kickstarter rpgs, including the Outlive Outdead Companion. My favorite part? “The author, WJ MacGuffin, is a pretty awesome guy ….” I’d like to think so! Perhaps more importantly, the author had some nice things to say about our Kickstarter. There you have
Yesterday, we launched our Kickstarter campaign for the Outlive Outdead Companion. Today, one of our rewards is half gone already! For those who didn’t read yesterday’s announcement, the Outlive Outdead Companion is a collection of five adventures for the Outlive Outdead rpg, each set in its own time period: Stone Age, Arthurian England, Jacobean Scotland,

Now we’re planning a new Kickstarter for the Outlive Outdead Companion: A collection of adventures each set in a different time period. To that end, we are seeking two new writers for the project. Here are the details. PAY: If the Kickstarter is
As we announced earlier, Happy Bishop Games is working on translating our games. Now, we can announce some details. Outlive Outdead, our Kickstarter-funded zombie roleplaying game, will be translated into French. We are excited to share our cinematic zombie game with the French-speaking world. And Personality Chess, our chaotic version of chess, will be translated into Spanish.
Now that the Outlive Outdead kickstarter is finally complete, Happy Bishop Games is moving forward with not one but two projects! The first is the HBG Translation Project. We are working with gamers who are fluent in a non-English language to translate our games (Outlive Outdead, Personality Chess, and Triune) into other languages. This won’t be a
You did it. Your Kickstarter campaign is successful and your product is finished. You won! But now, you have to get your product into your customer’s hands. Good luck. As I said earlier, a Kickstarter campaign is a business transaction. You are the business and the backers are your customers. When the product is complete
You simply cannot do a Kickstarter campaign with just a product. You also need rewards. You MUST include stuff beyond the product/service that you’re offering. With Outlive Outdead‘s kickstarter, I offered the following: customized adventures, zombified pics, stickers, test tubes filled with “zombie blood”, PDFs, paperbacks, hardcovers, dice, and battle mats.
