I've got a (mostly) professional survey I'm running. If you'd take the time to fill it out, that'd be cool.

20 minutes until Dead Scare funding closes! Close to two more stretch goals, so if you'd like to back, now's the time.

With $525 left to go, I say we get DEAD SCARE funded today. Agreed? Agreed.

I like games that tell interesting, important, intense stories. I love that games give us a structure to examine and unpack things that matter to all of us, if we chose to use them to that end.

What I love more is that sometimes, the execution, form and value of a game collide in such a way that my brain grabs hold and refuses to let go.

A first time lady designer has a kickstarter going Right Now for a game that is about women, by women. The lead designer/writer (+Elsa S. Henry)  the editor, the illustrator - they're all women(I'll double back and add tags to folks if they want to be tagged in). The supplements for stretch goals? All women.

The game is about McCarthy era zombie killing housewives - kinda kitschy and cutesy, right? maybe even seems a little niche and narrow. 
BUT!  Think about what the 1950s meant in America. This game is going to look at American race relations, sexual oppression, xenophobia of all sorts. What did the nuclear family mean to America? What did paranoia do to the fabric of our culture?

You guys. This game.

Go back it. These stories matter.

(full disclosure - somewhere way down on the list of stretch goals, I'm slated to write a Post Card on life on military installations during the era. but even if I weren't, I'd be excited about this product.)

I updated my Patreon this morning. If you decide to support, it's now on a per-creation basis, rather than monthly. I'm also going to be adding audio to the mix, with readings of stories, as well as audio commentary. Consuming just written material can be hard, time-wise. By adding audio, I'm hoping to make it easier for people access my work, which is a good think.

Wonderful DEAD SCARE write-up and interview!
When a Russian bio-bomb turns most of the men in America into flesh-eating zombies, women and children have to fight to survive using any available means. The Dead Scare tabletop RPG will let you explore an alternate history, subvert gender roles, and splatter zombie heads.

New reward tier available for Dead Scare! At the CORPORATE SPONSOR level, you get to pitch us an idea for a 1950s-style ad, and we'll make it happen. The ad will appear in the book, and you'll get the print of it. Neat-o!
