The latest version of Headspace is out and worth your attention.
 
Well this week has certainly been eventful and crazy as I leave for GenCon in two days. I'm happy to release the next revision of my Headspace Quickstart Rules!

These new rules simplify where possible, punch up some of the complications and provide some greater explanations to the Stress Charts, GM Moves and Long Play.

The plan is to do some final playtests at GenCon and work towards an Early Fall Kickstart, I want this thing out there!

Headspace is a cyberpunk game where the players are operatives fighting against evil corporations and make use not only of their own hyper-competence but that of their teammates by use of shared mental and emotional consciousness, the Headspace. There's a catch though: Everyone's got baggage and digging too deeply into the Space can quickly turn a simple Op into a battle for your very mind and spirit. Headspace, powered by the Apocalypse, explores the boundaries between cinematic fiction and cinematic feelings.

It's really interresting, and the theme of the game (personnal identity mostly) is appealing to me as I'm currently working on a game about it (in a scifi setting about settling on a new world).

Check it out, and buy a copy of Mythender. Totally worth it.
 
All my stuff on DriveThru is 37% off today, because I don't have to make good business decisions!

Also, my cat turned 7 today.

Coming Up in the Indies

Episode 61 of the #RPGDesignPanelcast  is up, where +Fred Hicks +Shoshana Kessock and +Tim Rodriguez  discuss the ins and outs of starting business in the RPG industry. This was a great panel from Metatopia 2015 and well worth your attention.

Factions Tested

Happy to report a completed alpha test for Factions, with my local crew (+Kevin Farnworth +Eric Paquette and +Christine Bellemare ). We ran through setting creation relatively quickly, and tried out the first version of the rules which were largely built on the Spark. 

We realized where the theoretical design went awry and restructured the resolution system. It's simplified it pretty simply. Now, the game has changed into a process where you collaboratively create the Face Characters as well as the Factions during play. I think that the continuous world-building, combined with a rather hard limit on the number of scenes, will help to ensure that the game fits the design footprint.

I will aim to prepare one more local playtest, then I hope to send a simple version out to the crowd for your own playtesting experience. 

Cheers!
Jason

Do we know if GOD at GenCon will be at the same location this year?

GOD will be ever-present at Gen Con, as will that faint cheesy odour from the guy with questionable personal hygiene.

Downfall: A 3-player story game about culture and the collapse of a society. If you liked Posthuman Pathways, Questlandia or Kingdom, I suspect you will want to see this. It looks like +Caroline Hobbs has done a fantastic job.

Spread the word!
A story game about the collapse of a society. Create a world you love and then destroy it, together.

As a reminder, folks who are interested in my ENnie-award winning game Posthuman Pathways can order physical copies affordably from from Indie Press Revolution. I also sell it directly, but the shipping is likely to be better from IPR.

I backed a kickstarter last year titled Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection and it is as glorious and thought-provoking as I have ever seen. I strongly recommend people check it out, and consider picking up a copy of they can afford it.

I was extremely pleased by the service provided by ADD Printing and Packaging. I required a rather unconventional piece of packaging for one of my products, and they worked with me during every step of the way. They were prompt in responding to my requests, knowledgeable and professional. In order to get very impressive prices, they do print in China. My only warning is to be sure to check that shipping times or Chinese New Year don't interfere with your business timelines.
