Bob Mervine, "His Exalted Mervinity" to you and me, is the sick genius behind Comfy Chair Games (see their link over there on the sidebar? ===>
He's also a client of mine. Full disclosure, and all that.
Well, Bob has launched a Kickstarter for his Heroic Scale game called "Spinespur."
From the Kickstarter text...
Spinespur Is a survival horror miniatures game unlike anything you
have seen in the past. This game took 4 years of creation and testing
before the rulebook went into print. We wanted to make sure that the
game was as tight as we could possibly make it. Another factor in the
creation of Spinespur was the play testing. We purposely went on a
search for people who had won national and regional championships in
other miniatures games and then got these people to play test and break
the game so that we could go back and fix the problems they uncovered.
As a result, Spinespur probably has the smallest FAQ and errata that you
have ever seen in a miniatures game!
Spinespur was launched in
2007 and received great reviews. Unfortunately, real world incidents put
the game on hiatus for a few years. This game has not been sold to
another company, Comfy Chair Games is the originator of the game and has
kept license to the game from its inception. Now that everything is
back to what it should be, Comfy Chair Games is looking to relaunch
Spinespur and finish the final few models that need to be made in order
to finish the 1st book in the Spinespur series!
You might say, JBR, you're a 15mm sci-fi guy. What's this 28mm Horror stuff doing on your blog?
To which I'd reply: Well, I'm also a loyal friend, and am trying to do a solid for a buddy. And, while I'm a 'fraidy-cat when it comes to horror, it appeals to my sick sense of humor. Here's some source art for your ocular scanners...
And the stretch goals...
So, help push Spinespur over the top, and get funded.
Do it. Do it for Mr. Jingles' sake. ;)
