Instruments - A First Look

As you may have seen from our Twitter feed, we have a new game is in development.  Instruments of the Chrysanthemum Throne will be our first game designed for multi-session (as well as one-off) play.  Like our other games, the focus will be on character driven stories with game mechanics that enhance this style of play.

Why Instruments of the Chrysanthemum Throne?
The game is set in a mythic past Japan, where the characters are tasked with using powerful Tsukumogami (objects that have achieved sentience after 99 years) in order to try and restore order on behalf of the Chrysanthemum Throne (The Emperor of Japan, his court and the Ministry of the Imperial Government).

What's the game about?
A main focus of the game will be how the characters balance drawing power from the Instruments with retaining their humanity, as they find innovative solutions to a legion of supernatural creatures and natural disasters that plague Japan.

How can I be involved?
If you'd like to be involved, we'll be looking for playtesters and peer-reviewers to provide comment on the early draft.  A formal announcement will be posted here in due course but you can drop us a line to register interest now if you like.

We're also on the lookout for artists, who might be interested in producing some pieces on commission on this subject matter - if you know someone, ask them to get in touch using the above address.

If you're going to be in Wellington (New Zealand) in late October, you can sign up to play in an open playtest at Confusion 2017.

Will there be a Kickstarter?
Nope.  This product will be released when it's done (hopefully before the end of the year), and you can choose whether to buy it then.

Vote Machine in 2017

Hi there

You've probably always voted human up until now, which is entirely understandable. But I'd like to tell you about an exciting new machine option for the 2017 ENnie Roleplaying Awards.

Fragment is a game which explores the increasingly complex relationship between human and machine.  It's been nominated in the category of Best Electronic Book and here's why I think it deserves your vote:
  • Fragment is free, like many of the machines in your daily life, it exists only to make you happy.
  • Fragment is a story game that supports you to tell the stories of discarded machines, and their human creators, while exploring the Last City.
  • Fragment was written in a single week as part of the 2016 Game Chef competition, and from these humble origins, it's mounting a scrappy campaign to compete for your vote against best-selling titles.
Did you know voting is free and doesn't require registration?

To cast a vote, all you need to do is go:

Rank your choices in order from the list provided, and click vote.  Like so many things in life, machines are working tirelessly to make this process as easy as possible.

This ENnie Awards, please consider a vote for Fragment in the category of Best Electronic Game and give hope to machines everywhere.
