The Kickstarter campaign for the Esper Genesis Heroic Sci-Fi Role-playing GameTM is in it’s last week. Three stretch goals and one backer goal have been reached with more on the way. The Kickstarter page can be reached via this link.
Studio 2 will be handling our fulfilment to distribution in North America, and Alligator Alley Entertainment also made contact with a European distributor, laying the groundwork for sales and more affordable backer fulfillment to that continent.
Our Brick & Mortar Retailer-Friendly Crowd-Funding Campaign program received wide praise and approval. A recent article posted by Pelgrane Press details the Esper Genesis campaign’s creative approach to retailers.
