We've pushed back the release date of Evolution to spend more time on the art. We will release it at Essen instead of GenCon. I'm sorry about this delay, but this will make for a much better product. (keep in mind that the illustrations below are not final)
May 5th: Kickstarter campaign begins
October 1st: Start mailing Kickstarter games
October 16th: Pre-release copies at Essen
November 1st: Start selling into distribution
Print & Play
Although you have a longer wait for the final game, the print & play files are now available on the Evolution page. Make your own copy this weekend!
To generate interest, we'll send a free t-shirt to anyone who does the following:
1) makes the PnP game
2) plays it with friends
3) posts a picture to the Evolution page.
There are two t-shirt options:
Here are the Evolution Rules. You might want to read them before committing to making an entire prototype. Better yet, read some of the preliminary reviews and session reports. I am happy to say that the preliminary buzz has been quite good...
