here we have a game of animals heisting food to survive. you build a gang of critters and then raid trash cans, fridges, stores, even farmer’s markets, in a small setting they’ve designed for BLADES IN THE DARK. luckily the base game is available free; i’ll have to go check it out myself.
the cover of the zine is wonderful. it certainly references FANTASTIC MR FOX in style, and the spotlight-yellow contrast really brings the heist aspect to the foreground. clever layouting on the cover always entices me to want to peak inside – ignore what anyone has ever told you about not judging a book by its cover. why else would they have them?
the project has a ton of collaborators, including nonbinary and queer artists, which is really great to see. the creator has chosen to use stretch funding as a way of paying for more art from these wonderful people, which is a great way to support the team and show that your business cares about people over profits.
funding expectation: half way there, i’m sure it’ll fund!
