On February 16th, 2015, I launched a Kickstarter for Dead Scare, a 1950s, feminist, fascist-punching, zed-bashing tabletop RPG by Elsa S. Henry. Today, almost two years later, “Dead Scare” is out to the public.
“I have this great idea for a game.” In creative circles, it’s a phrase that gets joked about because it’s often followed by some variation on “…and you should make it for me.”
When I started designing games 4-5 years ago, I used to post all of my designs in public as I was working on them. As my life got busier, I started doing that less and less. I’ve recently realized that I need to do it more.
