Not a full blog today. I’m sorry I’ve been so busy lately, but game design can be a harsh mistress, after all. However, today is a good day! IDW Games announced that the X-Files board game I designed for them is coming out in July, so I can finally mention it here! Their press release can be found here.
It’s a game for 2-5 players (up to 4 X-Files agents and 1 Syndicate player who takes the role of the Smoking Man) in about 60-90 minutes. I used to watch X-Files every Friday night with Dad (Mom was too creeped out by it), so it was really great getting to revisit the show (thanks, Netflix!) while researching for the game. I focused on the first three seasons of the show, and had a great time designing it. I’m really proud of this one, folks, keep an eye out for it!
