Escapade Games Launches Riftwalker on Kickstarter! Plus a Giveaway!

by Randy

Hello, everyone!

Great news! Escapade Games, the game design studio consisting of Angela Hickman Newnham and Julian Leiberan-Titus of Growing Up Gamers, have a new game on Kickstarter! Riftwalker: A Storm Hollow Card Game is a small strategy card game where players take on the role of one of the hero types of Storm Hollow, a riftwalker.

Riftwalkers explore the world, discovering rifts, pieces of other worlds that have been transported to and make up the world of Storm Hollow. These heroes are in tune with the world and can draw upon the magic of the world to do amazing and heroic things. Here's a video showing how the game works. And here's a review by Jonathan Liu of GeekDad!

Speaking of Storm Hollow, the game will be shipping to backers later this year. Storm Hollow: A Storyboard Game is a storytelling game with simple mechanics that the whole family can enjoy together. While the retail strategy has yet to be determined, the Storm Hollow Limited Edition Treasury is available for preorder. It's an amazing amount of content, and the only way to guarantee getting a copy is through this limited-time preorder. The world guide is available as a free PDF download, if you want to get a preview of what's in store!
