Just like Sherlock Holmes had a network of homeless people that helped him and Watson solve crime in Victorian England, Jay and I have the benefit of a nationwide gallery of rogues that lend aid when aid is needed in our never-ending quest for publication – the Game Artisans of Canada!
Yves Tourigny (with whom I am co-designing a nifty game of superheroics with), has been able to drop off the newest prototype of Akrotiri straight into the hands of Filosophia‘s powers-that-be at a meeting where he was playtesting Midnight Men with the publishers.
Thanks to Yves for doing the leg work on this one! We hope good things come from this merger between Z-man and Filosofia. Zev had Akrotiri originally, but with the joining of the companies, it got lost in the mix a bit. Once the chaos finally settled, Zev was able to show Sophie and Martin Akrotiri in its original form. We had since made some great changes to make it more interesting, speed up play, and cut out some fairly pointless rules/components from working with Quined. So we’re very happy to finally have the revised version in Filosofia’s hands.
As a thank you to Yves for being the wheelman for this pick up and deliver, here’s some commissioned artwork for Midnight Men by Toronto-area artist/designer, Ron Guyatt, that we feel captures that sleek art-deco look but maintains the gritty, pulpy feel we’re going for. Enjoy the teaser and be sure to check out Ron’s Etsy shop, fearless fans, where this poster will be available for sale in a week or so!
