TAKE 5 YOUNG HERO

The midnight oil for Kingdoms of Immacus (KoI) has been burning a little slower as of late. I'm probably 1 day of hard work away from finishing the Crystalynn Crest, and I should get on that and finish already. I've spent the last couple of weeks playing some games, relaxing, and refilling the creative well so to speak, and I really need to get back to work on KoI full-time again since I'm starting to feel guilty about it.

Part of the timing for the small break is that I've officially hit a wall with what I can comfortably finance with the game. I will be getting married in June, and I cannot fund both a wedding and KoI. It's a hard truth to accept, but I knew the financial burden such a big game would cause. This doesn't mean game development will cease, it just means the timeline for release gets pushed. I will need time to 1) Use whatever money I have to pay for the wedding, and 2) Get more money to pay off the debt accumulated for the wedding. This may mean an additional year for the game.

Well, I have already spent 3 years on KoI, what's another year of refinement. So that's the plan. I will take 5 from new contracts with artists, and work on formatting, the rules, web design, playtesting, and everything else that isn't paying people to do things. I am also working on a simpler card game that hopefully can bridge the gap to KoI's release. For that project, I'm currently stuck on the card frame, but that's another post altogether.

WELCOME TO ATOMIC AUTOMATON

We're working day and night to provide you the best tabletop experiences. We believe that great games require great experiences, and part of that experience, is the emotional connection to the characters you play with the players around your table. 

That's why we create games with characters you'll care about. Our games feature interconnected worlds, mechanics, and lore to create an experience that carries over to future titles. We hope you'll fall in love with the games we create and see the care that goes into each one. Welcome again, we're happy to have you.
