GAME SPOTLIGHT: THORNWATCH

I’ve been watching (pun intended) this game for some time now. Thornwatch was created by @pennyarcade duo Mike Krahulik and Gerry Holkins and is being published by @lonesharkgames. Thornwatch is a board game RPG where the story/battles progress in panels like a comic strip. The players themselves take the roles of heroes of the Thornwatch – an ancient guard called on to protect the citizens of the Eyrewood from all the dark creatures and forces that lurk within. The kickstarter campaign ended successfully, but you can still sign up for updates here! – Can’t wait for the game release!

TYPOGRAPHY TIPS

James Van Niekirk creator of @MinionsofMordak, wrote a very good article on basic design principals for laying out text inĀ games. Text is the key element in most games and can cause a lot of unneeded clutter and confusion if handled improperly. I recommend the article for any starting out in the board game industry.
