After a discussion with some people I trust and respect (which will be released on the Accidental Survivors feed as a Collateral episode), I have decided to move forward with Nefertiti Overdrive. I’m going to take a shot at funding it again, but there are some changes that need to be made before I do so.
1) I need to find a better title. I really like Nefertiti Overdrive, but it is not indicative of the actual game itself. I probably need to change the subtitle as well. This is a problem, because I’m not very good with titles.
2) I need to rework my Kickstarter text and video. I need to make the text more evocative and do a better job of explaining why this game is awesome. The video needs to be slightly more professional. Not completely professional, but just a notch up the quality scale.
3) I need to reconsider my budget. That will likely mean that the crowd-funding will be for PDF only, with a very small number of print copies available. It also means I likely won’t be able to afford editing and maps, though I could make maps for the included adventure a stretch goal.
I’m kind of tired of Kickstarter right now, so I’m going to take another week or so before I barrel ahead. You probably won’t see this for another couple of months, and when you do, it will have another name.
I have no idea what that name will be.
