In an effort to prove my seriousness about bringing Creatures of the Night to life, I have founded a suitable company and website name – Krakon Games! The name came to me pretty quickly. I am hugely inspired by Lovecraft art and background. In fact anything involving tentacles is pretty cool in my book. Combine that with the Slavic-heavy inspiration behind my in-development card game, Krakonoš, and you can see how I got to the name.
So, what’s in store? Nothing yet (get it?). I am working on two projects for Creatures of the Night:
Krakonoš is a card game set in the same universe as Creatures of the Night. I see this as an introduction to my game world, making use of the same environments, creatures and mechanics that exist in the greater world of CotN. My aim is to put out this game, perhaps through a funding platform if it goes well, and get the CotN concept out there. I am not the greatest or fastest sculptor, so planning an entire miniature range to do by myself is bordering upon crazy. However, the other project is actually the miniature range. I work on this when I get chance, but I do hope to eventually hire out other sculptors to help bulk out the range once I have a ruleset in place.
My primary objective is Krakonoš for now. I am able to work on this a lot as it’s mostly document editing that can be done anywhere (thanks to my phone!). I am hoping to put together a rough prototype and begin playtesting in September. This is the first big step should help steer and fine tune the card game.
