I have pulled Meteor for sale from the Game Crafter. More news as it develops.

This has absolutely nothing to do with The Game Crafter, and I strongly urge you to check out my other games there.

Hey Mike,

This has happened several times in the past and when it first started happening, we were concerned. But then we discovered that games that get pulled from The Game Crafter, are usually doing that because they are moving on to bigger/better things. (ie. Signing with a game publisher!)

So thanks for the update and I have no doubt that Meteor has a bright future ahead. We look forward to some great news!

Regards,

The publisher in question is Pandasaurus.

And I don't think I could have done it without the Game Crafter. By having a place where I could self-publish and generate reviews, I gave potential publishers a lot to think about for the game. Thanks!

Hey Mike,

This is very exciting news and we're thrilled. Obviously when a game leaves our community it's both a happy and sad moment! But we know we're just a starting point for new games and ideas.

And thank you for the kind words. It really makes our day to hear that we're helping game designers become successful. We'll be reaching out to you at some point to get your success story, but for now you've got some exciting work ahead!

Cheers!

Mike,

You know what they say about if you cast your bread upon the waters?

Remember that review copy you sent to VICTORY POINT GAMES? Well, at the time, we really could not facilitate manufacturing a game with that many cards, and we reluctantly turned METEOR down.

Well, times change. This past weekend VPG moved to a larger facility and has the equipment here/coming soon to manufacture cards games. Everything is falling into place.

I have taken your METEOR game and handed it off to our boardgames producer, Nathan Hansen, and game analyst, Stephanie Newland. No doubt it will be on the playtest/review tables this weekend, if nothing else, just for fun (because we remember it being a really neat game).

If you do not have it committed elsewhere, then we should talk. I think you will be happy with what you'll hear.

Thanks,

Alan Emrich

That is great news, but I'm afraid I have committed it elsewhere, signed a contract and everything. Thank you very much for the offer, but I cannot commit to you publishing Meteor at this time.

I haven't jumped in here, but certainly should have already.

We are extremely excited for Meteor, and have some really big plans for the game. We're working on artwork right now, and will be announcing more as we move forward.

Great to see other publishers interested in the game as well, we jumped on it really quickly and I'm glad we did. It's one of the more unique games I've played and think gamers are going to love it.

- Nathan

I've read the reviews here on the Geek and I really think that this could be a game that would actually get all in my family to the table. So, I'm bummed that I missed the opportunity to pick it up from the Game Crafter.soblue But, a nicely polished version might be worth the wait. Is there any projection as to when this will be available?

Same here. Just saw this on a geeklist, and, well....



Any timeline info would be great.
