Burning Planets ~ A free wargame

(1/4) > >>

The Hermit King:


Hello everyone! I'm here to show you the fruit of my latest efforts: Burning Planets, a strategic tabletop war game, with a space colonization setting, where the players fight using fleets of spaceships to get control of planets and, in the end, become the final conquerors of a planetary system!

I'm an artisan and a videogame programmer, and when I started creating the rules for this game as a game design exercise, I decided that I liked a lot how it came out, I think it's a fun game and it should be given a try by the lovers of the genre. Because of this, I prepared everything as a printable set, so with a color printer and some paper you can start playing right away! And for the same reason, the game is just free, and it always will be, I just want it to be played, I don't care for earning from it.

This is the game's page: https://www.thehermitking.com/burning-planets/

I hope many of you will try it, and if you do, tell me if you enjoyed it!

The Hermit King:
As I was asked from some players I added a dowloadable folder with all the game's files. Since the size was above my websites' max file size, I had to use an external hosting for it, hence the external link.

I also added some pictures to give a better idea of how the game looks without the need to look at the files.

interesting, got plans of making this into a plugin or something physical dont wanna print  :P

The Hermit King:
I already prepared all the material needed to produce the game as a physical set, but I lack a vacuum chamber to cast it in resin.
Later today I will post a new blog entry on the website with a picture of the clay models, you can check it if you're interested.
I'm thinking on making a kickstarter with a low goal, just the cost of the equipment and materials that I need to start making the game as a physical set, but it's been out for just a few days, and kickstarter funding needs an estabilished community to work, so it looks a bit early.
Sice I make other crafts too (not yet posted but soon to come), I already placed in the bottom of the about page a donation link for anyone that doesn't want to buy stuff but just throw in a few bucks to help. Any money from that will be used for crafting, and first of the list is this game!

The Hermit King:
I wrote the new post I was talking about, with pictures of the models for the physical set, if you or someone else is interested @xdarkgeox
https://www.thehermitking.com/developing-burning-planets-in-a-physical-game/

If interest continues to grow at this rate I will make a kickstarter campaign to fund the start of the game's production soon!

I also added a "Community" page in the main menu, where you can login/register to post comments!

EDIT: I changed the membership system, so now Community is the list of members, the login/registration is in a top bar like most forums now.
