Here is a preview of some of the artwork for my new game.. I'm hoping to have it finished sometime this spring and up on Kickstarter. Feedback, initial thoughts, and recommendations are much appreciated. Thanks!

 


By the way, here is the link to my post regarding the game overview if anyone wants to check it out..

You know what my days used to be like? I just tested. Nobody murdered me. Or put me in a potato. Or fed me to birds. I had a pretty good life. And then you showed up. You dangerous, mute lunatic. So you know what? You win. Just go. Don't come back.

Looks great, compliments the board nicely

I'm a huge sucker for this sort of sci-fi feel

Ditto, the artwork looks great!

However, this game may join the ranks of Condottiere, of games I can't pronounce.

Well, to be fair, this one I think I know how to pronounce, it's just a tongue twister...

I've gone back and forth with this name a few times myself. I really like the name but it does have 5 syllables. Well, I still have a couple months before it's finalized so if I get enough consensus regarding the name's pronunciation I can always change it. I appreciate this kind of feedback because I want this game to be perfect, or at least near perfect, so I'm willing to make any necessary changes.

I would consider it. Writtern it looks great, but it's necessary for it to be pronouncible ... how else can people recommend it in person or talk about it? And I imagine it would be embarrasing if you'd be presenting your game and struggling say its name, right

It's pronounced "Astro-lee-see-um". But I can see how it could be difficult to enunciate because it's not a known word. Nevertheless, I want to have a unique title and something that stands out. I'll certainly keep your recommendations in mind and continue to think of an alternative name that is unique and could represent the game, but is easier to pronounce.
