And we're off!
We are very proud to announce the launch of our latest project, "Keep on the Cul-de-Sac!" a role-playing parody of daily life...at home. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gaminghonors/dwellings-and-driveways-keep-on-the-cul-de-sac?ref=project_build#
I mentioned in my last post that gaming isn't just the focus of our company Gaming Honors: it's part of who we are as people. We all came to RPGs when we were young, and they've helped shape our view of the world. As the days at home ticked by, I started reimagining the challenges in role-playing terms, including the fundamental challenge of just staying put. I also wanted to find some humor in the new "normal," even amid the difficulties.
And so "Keep on the Cul-de-Sac!" was born.
But it was important to me that this project be more than a funny look at the everyday. I also wanted to acknowledge the critical work being done by so many, and provide some resources for helping others and for getting help. The Original Role-Playing Game had Appendix N, a list of literary works providing inspiration for gamers. We have Appendix A: a curated list of registered 501c3 non-profit organizations working to meet people's needs during the pandemic. They inspire us.
This module is a parodic look at life-at-home through the lens of old-school RPGs, but it also a tribute to the hobby we love: Matt Morrow's wonderful art reimagines classic illustrations and uses them to see the day-to-day in a new way. It is humorous, but also quite an accomplishment.
So here we go! Please support the project if you can, and follow along with us during this short two-week campaign. Please take care of yourselves.
