FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Evil Hat Taking Pledges to Publish Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple
New storytelling game for YA and family gamers, set in new fantasy universe
Evil Hat Productions is excited to announce the start of a new fundraising campaign via Kickstarter to publish Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple.
Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple is a storytelling game about helping people and getting into trouble, for 3-5 players, ages 12 and up. Players tell the story of young travelers who help people, but spend most of their time getting into trouble. They use creativity and strategy to create a humorous coming-of-age adventure in a universe of endless skies and tiny planets.
Do is the latest release by game designer Daniel Solis, creator of Happy Birthday, Robot!, a storytelling game designed for children and families. In Do, he continues blurring the lines between Euro-style board games and role-playing games to create fun, light-hearted games that easily build stories. This time, the game is designed for a young adult audience.
“I was inspired by Nickelodeon’s Avatar: the Last Airbender, The Little Prince, and the Kino's Journey anime series.” Solis says. “I combined those influences into a new storytelling game set in a weird new universe. I’m happy to say Do consistently produces a funny, creatively engaging and strategically interesting experience.”
Evil Hat Productions, publishers of The Dresden Files Role-Playing Game, has a long history of fostering independent game design. Now, Evil Hat is partnering with Daniel Solis to help bring Do into production by raising funds on Kickstarter, a crowdsource fundraising site commonly used to fund artistic endeavors like film production, novel publication and game development.
The goal is to raise $4,000 in 45 days. Kickstarter allows people to pledge whatever amount they wish, but no money is deducted until the $4,000 goal is reached, so it’s a no-risk way to help small-press games enter the market.
