Many years ago I had this idea to make a game where you run a tavern. I think I even wrote about it once or twice here on the blog. It started off as a Harvest Moon style idea then morphed into some RPG’ish management game then turned into more of a MMO-amalgamation of ideas. Ultimately, you had to run a tavern and everything you could possibly imagine that would be related to tavern life. You’d ultimately expand your tavern either by itself into some massive almost casino-like place or you’d become a city.
Like my Dad who came up with the idea for a heated ice cream scoop and my mom who had the idea for a book about a hamster class pet, I didn’t do anything with the idea but someone else had the same idea and ran with it.
I don’t support Kickstarters anymore, and I’m pretty vocal about that. So this isn’t a push toward supporting these guys, but I do like the game idea. They’ve gone with a Tavern RPG / management game, and it looks fun. They’re going with the RPG-management style and sending people out on quests as a roster management game. I’m thinking it might be like a WoW Garrison in that respect.
Neat idea, wonderful art direction, fun music, etc. Worth checking out and adding to my “buy when it comes out” list.
